Each of our classes consists of a careful blend of teaching, examination practise using past papers and confidence building. Our maths GCSE tuition classes are designed to complement your child’s teaching at school and help them to catch up on topics that they’ve found difficult or reinforce and embed what has already been taught, extending them to the highest level possible. Small group tuition enables our teachers to spend time going over topics in greater detail than larger school classes allow. All of our students are provided with lesson notes which can be collated into a revision file, along with examples of questions that commonly come up in exams. Your child will also be given access to a variety of practise papers as well as online tutorials.

So as you can see, we are able to support children of all ages with their maths. Our maths tutors can help your child to understand maths in such a way that they are able to apply their skills to a range of topics with confidence and, with any areas that need improvement, we’ll guide and support your child until they become confident with them.

We aspire to help every child to maximise their potential and grow in confidence. Whether it’s GCSE tuition or they’re just starting at nursery, Play and Learn can help your child become a confident mathematician.
