Maths Tutors covering Portsmouth
For most kids, maths is an unwelcome chore – something to be endured rather than enjoyed. Children of any age can encounter problems understanding concepts and tasks, and easily become discouraged when they keep getting low marks. Achieving a good standard of maths is highly important to their future academic and career success. Capturing their attention, dealing with problems and showing how they can get consistently good results requires the help of a Maths Doctor Tutor. Highly skilled, knowledgeable and professional, our tutors know how to help, inspire and enthuse even the most reluctant learner. We can identify the exact problems that a child is experiencing and provide a tutor that can deal with that situation. The tutor’s approach will match the child’s needs – some will respond better to a traditional teacher, others to an enthusiastic graduate. Our tutors provide help at all levels from KS1 to A level, including specialist help where necessary. Free taster sessions are available – just contact us for more information.
