Maths/numeracy tuition

maths numeracy tutors wakefield

Maths is a subject which is at the centre of learning. The ability to use numbers confidently and with increasing sophistication is core to the primary and secondary curriculums. Once the basic requirements of number have been mastered young people are required to go on and use their knowledge in mathematical processes in the areas of data-handling, shape & measure and, at secondary level, algebra.

Problems in maths can be apparent at many different levels, from difficulty in grasping number relationships and remembering times tables through to confusion with more complex two and three part problems and inability to grasp the ‘rules’ of GCSE level maths.

Individual tuition can allow for the diagnosis and analysis of these problems which in turn can enable a programme to be developed which builds upon the student’s strengths and helps them to master the more difficult areas.
