Many of the students I see suffer from a lack of confidence in maths. For others this lack of confidence is more extreme and manifests itself in the form of anxiety. There are many ways of helping to overcome this. The image below has some good advice for parents.
It is always a good idea to do a little maths every day. It helps keeps those skills nicely honed and reminds you of the areas you still need to work on. I encourage all of my Key Stage 3 and above students to use Corbett Maths' 5-a-day for homework. There are tasks for every day of the year and there are worked answers, too. Once you feel very comfortable with a particular level, then please start to attempt the next one. Of course, we can go over 'tricky' topics in our 1-2-1 sessions. You can find 5-a-day at corbettmaths.com/5-a-day/gcse/
I have been really pleased to establish myself as an online tutor, as well as offering face-to-face tuition. The beauty of online tuition is that the tutor and the student can be anywhere in the country, or even the world, yet tuition can still take place. This term I have started working with a very special young man from Wiltshire, who has responded amazingly well to the online format, fully interacting with all aspects of his lesson.
The new term here at Diss Maths Tutor started on Monday 4th September. Those who have been having tuition during the summer holidays have done exceptionally well, and it has been good to see those who have been having a bit of a break. I hope you have all had a fabulous summer!
