Intuition in Action

Online Maths Tuition for Primary and Secondary School Pupils

Your child will receive professional maths tuition at exactly the right level for their particular needs. At every stage, whether it be primary school,  National 5 or Higher maths or somewhere in between, our tutors will support your child's needs.  These days, all tuition takes place online using ZOOM, Teejay text-books and various web-based resources.

Primary Maths

Primary maths tuition builds children's confidence by learning solid, basic maths skills.

They will reinforce skills such as:

• addition, subtraction, multiplication & division
• measuring and units
• fractions, decimals & percentages
• basic algebra
• time
• money

As well as building confidence in maths, these skills will help your child with their wider school curriculum and life in general!

Lower secondary maths (S1&S2)

Lower secondary maths tuition builds a bridge from the basic skills learned in primary school to the higher level of understanding needed for National 4 or National 5 maths.

Of course, when this bridge is built upon solid foundations your child can prepare for these qualifications with confidence.  They will work on topics such as:

• Algebra
• Angles and bearings
• Fractions
• Powers and roots
• Percentages
• Pythagoras
• Speed distance and time.

National 5 and Higher Maths

National 5 (Nat 5) and Higher maths tuition covers everything your child needs to tackle the senior years of high school with confidence.

Not only do the learners reinforce their understanding of the skills learned in school but they develop excellent revision skills and exam techniques (and National 5 assessment preparations for 2021).

Nat 5 students work on:

• Factorising (Common factor, difference of 2 squares & trinomials).
• Geometry and bearings
• Trigonometry (SOHCAHTOA, sine and cosine rules)
• Statistics including standard deviation.
• Surds and indices
• Vectors
• Compound interest, appreciation and depreciation & reverse percentages
• Pythagoras theorem (3D and reverse Pythagoras)
• Quadratics, parabolas, completing the square
• Simultaneous equations

Exams or Assessments

As with most things in life, the key to exam success lies in the preparation.  We help our learners to prepare for every test or prelim as if it were the real exam.  This means that by the time the exams come around, they have acquired the revision skills and exam techniques that they need to help them to get the results they deserve.

Of course, as well as revising, we help your child to practice SQA past papers so that they are really comfortable with the style of questions that they will face when they are tested.

After that, it's just a matter of eagerly awaiting results day in August.....

Why it is worth having tuition

1.  Your child's confidence grows; this helps them to enjoy school and have a positive approach to their learning.

2.  The nature of maths means that each new topic builds upon prior learning; success in high school depends upon the foundations that were built in primary school.

3.  Along with English, maths is viewed as an essential subject by most employers, colleges and universities.
