Helping students reach their full potential in Pre U Mathematics

Pre U Mathematics Tutor

The knowledge gap between GCSE and Pre U can often be quite daunting for students. A Pre U Mathematics tutor will make this transition easier by providing support in areas of difficulty.

A tutor will work methodically to ensure students have a comprehensive understanding of key mathematical processes and how to apply them in a range of contexts. This includes mechanics and probability, both of which are prerequisites for further study.

Pre U Mathematics tuition places an emphasis on exam technique and how best to answer questions in accordance with the assessment objectives.

Tuition goes beyond the traditional methods of teaching and explores what works best for the individual. This flexibility enables tutors to tailor each lesson to their students specific needs.

Pre U Tuition

Cambridge Pre-University qualification (Pre-U) is an alternative to A Levels being offered by a growing number of schools.

It was developed in 2008 by Cambridge Assessment International Education as an intensive programme of study designed to equip students with the knowledge and skills required for university.

Like A Levels, Pre-Us are taken by students between the ages of 16 and 18. Students have around 25 subjects to choose from, and of these, they can select 3 or 4 to focus on.

Exams are sat at the end of the second year (Year 13) of study.

London

Most of our tutors are based in London and tutor students on an hourly basis, travelling from one family home to another.

The minimum lesson length is an hour and the tutor may request travel expenses depending where you live and where they are travelling from.

Popular lesson slots are after school, between 4.30 p.m. and 7.30 p.m., and at the weekends. If a child is out of school, the lessons can take place during the day.

Out of London

We can arrange a tutor to travel to your home if you live outside of London.

In order to make this viable for the tutor, the minimum lesson time is 2 hours (but you can book 3 or more hours).

If you live further afield, a day of tuition where 4 hours are broken up by lunch is a very popular option. This arrangement often happens at the weekends and during half-terms and holidays.

We ask that you cover the cost of the tutor’s travel time as well as their travel costs.

Abroad

If you live abroad, or are embarking on a period of extended travel, you may request a residential tutor to support your children.

This can be for a period of anything from a few weeks to a year – or even longer.

The residential tutor normally works Monday to Friday. Tuition is either worked around school hours or arranged according to the family’s schedule if the child is not attending school.

The curriculum can either mirror what the child would be doing at school or be tailor-made to the student (whether following a traditional curriculum, or allowing greater freedom in what is taught such as project-based learning).

Online

If your location means it is tricky for you to meet a tutor face-to-face, we can arrange tuition online.

Tutors on our books are teaching students all over the world: from France and Italy, to the US and Russia. We are experts at handling lesson arrangements over different time zones.

We are satisfied that even if students can’t meet tutors in person, they can still benefit from the knowledge and energy tutors bring to their online lessons.

Online tuition is conducted via Skype with a selection of other screen and material-sharing software. This ensures that lessons are fully interactive and that students gain the maximum from the sessions.
