Maths Tutors covering East Sussex
It’s shocking that from 2002 and 2011 3.3 million children left school without basic Maths and English, and almost half of all employers said they’ve had to put on basic remedial training in literacy and numeracy. It’s no wonder that colleges, university and employers are asking for good grades in the core skills. A student leaving school without a grade C in GCSE Maths is automatically at a disadvantage. Even a younger child struggling with the subject may be denied entry into better schools or even the opportunity to sit the Higher exam paper and so stop their chances of taking A-Level Maths and in turn denying themselves the chance to take many University courses.
