National 5 and Higher Maths Tuition

National 5 Maths Tuition


We have two options for helping your son or daughter get a great grade at National 5 maths. 



Our 5 Step National 5 Maths Coaching System


Our traditional weekly sessions



Helping Students Achieve Success


If your son or daughter is planning to move on to Higher Education after they have finished school, it is essential that they have passed their National 5 maths and English. When it comes to approaching National 5 maths, we find that students often fall into one of these groups:

  • students who always found maths to be ok but they want to get a grade A at National 5 and then go on to Higher maths afterwards.
  • people who have never been too keen on maths and they just need to get National 5 maths so that they can concentrate on their other subjects in 5th and 6th years.

Either way, weekly tuition will help your teenager to achieve their goal and gain the qualification that they need.  

How Our 5 Steps to National 5 Maths Coaching System Works


For students who are preparing for their National 5 maths exams, the  5 Step to National 5 maths system provides coaching  for students to consolidate their learning and teaches a revision program that can be applied to most subjects.  
Instead of a one hour per week tuition session, the 5 Step System provides daily coaching for your child to learn, apply and 

consolidate their learning which includes a recorded revision



What your child will receive on the 5 Step National 5 Maths Coaching Sytem


1. One-to-One review meeting each week with their tutor.
2. Video lesson on chosen maths topic followed by assignments.
3. Personal video feedback on their submitted work and follow up assignment.
4. Email access to their tutor for additional support.
5. Recorded lessons to support their revision programme and access to past SQA papers and worked answers.

The key areas in which we help our National 5 students are:

  • Algebraic operations/changing the subject
  • Geometry and bearings
  • Trigonometry
  • Standard deviation
  • Surds and indices
  • Vectors
  • Compound interest
  • Algebraic Fractions
  • Pythagoras
  • Quadratic function
  • Simultaneous equations


  The Big Leap

For many students there is a huge difference between National 5 maths and Higher maths. It can be quite a surprise for some to find that they are struggling in a subject which is usually their strength.  It can also be difficult to ask for that extra bit of help in school, especially when expectations are high. 


Higher maths is a year of intense study and we appreciate the leap in understanding that this requires.  We can help your teenager regain their confidence and take on these challenges. 


Their tutor will focus on the specific topics your teenager needs 

                                                                                              support in and ensure that your son or daughter is confident in all

                                                                                              areas of the curriculum.


Practise Makes Perfect


By the time of their exam (or ongoing assessments), your son or daughter will have practiced all of the past papers applicable, revised thoroughly and be fully prepared and confident ready to achieve success on the day.

'Heidi and Richard have encouraged our son to have confidence with his maths. He now enjoys the subject once more, especially as he got a grade A in National 5 maths. The online teaching proved a fabulous bonus for us as we are both key workers. Thank you both so much.'
