GCSE Maths Foundation Levels 1-5 INFO

If your child is discouraged, sad or even angry about their Maths results, we can support them so that they will become a confident student prepared for the upcoming GCSE Maths exam.

I have witnessed this transformation in hundreds of students we have supported. 

Reviewing past results with your child, we pinpoint and prioritise the concepts that require direct instruction and review. A benchmark is established, so your child will see their Maths improvement based on understanding, practice, memory, recall and growing confidence.



Provide us with a marked school-based GCSE Maths test your child wrote within the past 3 months, and further testing is not required.

Assessment Cost: £399.00 only as necessary

Includes the assessment, invigilating, marking, report and consultation. Evaluation of the student's Maths strengths and weaknesses to pinpoint skills to be learned.
