Moving up to a higher grade is both an accomplishment and a challenge. For students about to enter KS3, the jump from primary to secondary school can be troubling. The lessons are more extensive and complicated. The academic demands are higher, too.
Key stage 3 students are expected to spend the next three years (Year 7 to 9) studying at least 15 subjects, particularly the core three: English, science and maths. None of these is particularly easy, but if we’re creating a ranking based on difficulty level, maths would likely be on top.
Many students have trouble understanding word problems and applying correct mathematical equations. Those who get passing grades manage by memorising equations. Our tutors, however, teach students to approach maths problems differently.
We show them that studying maths can be fun. Our years of tutoring in Orpington made us realise that building up a student’s confidence, along with teaching practical skills, helps them perform better in this subject.
