Maths Tutoring Makes Sense

Written by I Teach UK Private Tutors on February 21st, 2013. Posted in Private Tuition News

The Importance of  Maths Tutoring

Let’s face it, maths is the basis of almost every complex knowledge. Our progress as students, scientists and logically-thinking people lays it’s basis on our mathematical knowledge. This is why it is very important that we get introduced to maths properly at an early age by a capable maths tutor. As we grow and develop we encounter maths everywhere in our everyday life, whether it be business, economy, statistics or even art. Creating a good layout in general is virtually impossible without thorough calculation of dimensions. So, with this thought in mind a maths tutors have great responsibility to explain the significance of mathematics and equip their students to use maths and gain from it.

Logical Maths Problems

Maths is used to develop logical thinking and cognitive skills. All those sudoku type games are not simply time wasters, as maths can be fun, too.

Wigan Tutors, before coming to the point, will always explain the background of a new mathematical term; tell a story or explain how given term is corroborated by other, simpler terms. This way, students will actually understand the role of a given principle, see the bigger picture. Because of pressures in education sometimes school teachers often rush through a problematic  and forget how much (or little, actually) the students really know and understand. Private maths tutors will take time, and return to the basics every once in a while (as the Latin proverb goes “repetition is the mother of science”), because only when that basic knowledge is consolidated, it is possible to learn and understand something even a bit advanced. Maths tutor should encourage students to develop their knowledge on their own as well, not to run away from seemingly complex problems, because every problem can be solved, when broken to small, logical pieces.

I Teach-UK Private Tuition Supports School Curriculum

Education influences and reflects the values of society, and the kind of society we want to be. It is important, therefore, to recognise a broad set of common values and purposes that underpin the school curriculum and the works of private tutors providing private tuition to support the work of Wigan, Bolton and Manchester schools.

Foremost is a belief in private tuition and school education, at home and at school, as a route to the spiritual, moral, social, cultural, physical, and mental development, and thus the well being of the student. Private tuition and school education is also a route to equality of opportunity for all, a healthy and just democracy, a productive economy, and sustainable development. Education should reflect the enduring values that contribute to these ends. These include valuing ourselves, our families and other relationships, the wider groups to which we belong, the diversity in our society and the environment in which we live. Education  should also reaffirm our commitment to the virtues of truth, justice, honesty, trust and sense of duty.

I Teach-UK & The importance of Education

At I Teach-UK we know that at the same time, education must enable us to respond positively to the opportunities and challenges of the rapidly changing world in which we live and work. In particular, we need to be prepared to engage as individuals, parents, workers and citizens with economic, social and cultural change, including the continued globalisation of the economy and society, with new work and leisure patterns and also the rapid expansion of the communication technologies.

Maths Saturday School

I Teach-UK  has found that for some students the best way to retain information that is taught is by repeating the information back to a group, this method translates into a 90% retention rate.  This can be accomplished through probing questions used by the tutor and the use of an interactive smart board.  Practice is the next best retention method, which results in about a 75% retention rate.  One way to accomplish this is by completing homework assignments or in class problem discussions.  Ongoing testing and assessments help to ensure that the concepts taught by the maths tutor are being absorbed.

I Teach UK have completed the refurbishment of the learning centre which is fully equipped with an interactive smart board for one on one private tuition or group classes.

Wigan Maths Tutors Getting Parents Involved

Written by I Teach UK Private Tutors on February 2nd, 2013. Posted in Private Tuition News

At I Teach-UK maths tutors get parents to also be involved in the development of their child’s private tutoring. The secure Parent Zone login area is proving a real hit as more parents are logging in to see how their child is progressing with their maths tutoring. With the valuable feedback given on a weekly basis by the maths tutor it enables the parent to be in tune with what additional support they can give outside of the normal private tutoring sessions.

Parents Supporting Maths Tutors

Obtaining the support of a Wigan maths tutor could be just the tonic needed to address  the problem of your child’s difficulties in comprehending their School maths lessons. However paying private tuition fees for a maths tutor does not necessarily mean your child will be able to bring home high grades in maths. Apart from hiring a qualified maths tutor and leaving your child’s learning to them, parents still have the responsibility to be on top of their child’s development. Recent studies have shown that parent’s involvement contributes to a better understanding of a child’s education. This does not necessarily mean that mums or dads should be an expert in maths to assist their child, but teaching just the basic knowledge in maths such as addition, division, multiplication and subtraction can contribute the to the child’s mathematical ability and thus giving them more confidence to face more challenging lessons that will be handled by the maths tutor. As a parent, it would be best to personally get involved in teaching maths to your kids even on just the basics. With this regular practice, paying a tuition fee for a maths tutor will certainly have its rewards not just for you but for your child but for the parents also.
