GCSE Maths Tutoring Service Prepares for Launch
July 25, 2011 (PRLEAP.COM) Education NewsIf your children are preparing for their GCSE exams next year, there will always be one subject that they'll struggle with more than most.
Historically, maths is a subject that many maths pupils fear – but online business iTutorMaths has worked to help solve this problem by introducing an innovative virtual classroom that connects students with an experienced and qualified GCSE maths tutor through the internet.
More than just a virtual classroom
Launching their new website this month, and their full service in September 2011, iTutorMaths are keen to engage GCSE maths revision students by embracing modern technologies that allows maths tuition via a simple broadband connection.
On connecting a microphone and speakers to their home PC, students access exam board specific GCSE maths support and peer to peer learning through group sessions led by a dedicated, expert maths tutor. They work with high quality, grade targeted maths resources and receive help and debate mathematical problems and questions relating to their curriculum.
Praise from parents
One parent praised the idea by saying:
"Being able to give a child additional help, particularly in a particular area where they might be weak, or indeed where they might be very strong and they're not being stretched in the school, is a huge advantage."
iTutorMaths recognises the importance of peer to peer learning and puts students in touch with one another, and an expert tutor outside of school hours, where confidence is built in a safe, secure and comfortable virtual environment. Tuition is specific to the main examination boards studied in UK schools, which ensures that iTutorMaths' courses fully support school teaching and prepares students for the precise exam they will be sitting.
GCSE maths tutors with quality, experience and enthusiasm.
For parents, iTutorMaths is a reassuring solution for children struggling with what is recognised as one of the most important and yet most feared of all school subjects. All tutors have five or more years experience of teaching in UK schools, and all have a love of maths, having studied it to degree level. Parents can also be reassured that their child will be safe whilst studying, as iTutorMaths ensures that all tutors are CRB checked as a minimum standard.
During extensive trialling, the high calibre of enthusiastic tutors partnered with an exciting learning environment has resulted in some of the most reluctant students becoming fully engaged with maths. And the results are pretty impressive too. Almost 100 per cent of all participants in the trials believed they were now more confident and better equipped for their GCSE maths exams.
