Moving up to a higher school year is definitely an exciting time – but it can also be a challenge. Entering KS3 means transitioning from primary to secondary school. And as lessons become more complex and comprehensive, it’s easy for a student to feel the troubles that come with higher academic demands.
Key Stage 3 students keep themselves occupied for three years – from Year 7-9 – learning a number of subjects, with a focus on Science, English and Maths. While none of these subjects are particularly easy, many students say they find maths the most challenging.
The challenge in learning maths mainly stems from the difficulty in understanding word problems and coming up (and applying) the correct mathematical solutions. Many students who receive passing marks say they manage by memorising equations. But that shouldn’t be the only solution.
Our professional Hayes-based KS3 Maths tutors take on a different approach: we show our students that it can be fun to learn maths. We develop programmes that go beyond memorising equations: we come up with solutions and activities that build our students’ confidence, teach them practical skills, and help them improve their performance in this subject.
The Tutor Surgery provides guidance and assistance with KS3 maths, both to students who are doing well and need a bit pf a push, as well as those who struggle with maths. We provide the following:
