Mathnasium's approach to GCSE is trifold

As well as developing strong subject knowledge, our instructors develop every student's reasoning and communication skills through rigorous problem-solving and socratic questioning. This is then balanced with exam-style questions.

In just a few months our son was able to master his algebra issues and raise his test score beyond his expectations!

Frequently Asked Questions

Contact your local Mathnasium Learning Centre with any questions you may have about preparing for GCSE maths. Here are some of the more common ones we get:

  • How can I increase my child's GCSE grade?

    One of the best ways you can help your child improve their test scores is by providing plenty of support and encouragement in all the right ways. Encourage them to ask questions, revisit topics they find challenging and team up with Mathnasium!

    Our GCSE Exam tutoring sessions are efficient, engaging and best of all, effective.

  • How can I help my child be a better test taker?

    There are three things you can do to help your child be a better test taker. First, you can encourage them to begin studying well in advance rather than cramming the night before. Also, make sure they get plenty of sleep to refresh and recharge their brain for the exam.

    Finally, give them every advantage with our test prep programme. Our proven instruction methods can help your child achieve their best test scores by building their understanding and applying their skills in unfamiliar contexts.

  • How can I help my child prepare for GCSE exams at home?

    Maths test prep at home begins with a solid foundation in maths concepts learned in the classroom, reinforced by maths test tutoring and supported at home. Encourage your child to maintain focus throughout their classes and not procrastinate in their studies. Revising for short chunks of time regularly will make all the difference. Make sure they don’t wait until the last minute to reach out for help, either!

  • How can I prepare for final exams?

    Final exams should accurately reflect your maths skills, comprehension of maths concepts, and preparation. GCSE test prep with Mathnasium can help you hone and apply your current maths skills, brush up on ones that are a little shaky, and grow your confidence while lessening any test-taking anxiety. Practice regularly, and begin reviewing problems far in advance before your final exams.

  • What happens during the initial assessment at Mathnasium?

    At Mathnasium, we understand that assessments can sometimes feel stressful for students. That’s why we take a personalised and engaging approach to each assessment. We start by building rapport with your child, giving them a short centre tour and finding out about maths at school.

    We use both verbal and written questions to identify your child’s strengths and areas for improvement as well as to gain a true understanding of how each student approaches and thinks about maths. More importantly, our assessments don’t feel like a test – we ensure your child feels comfortable and confident in order to get the most accurate picture of how we can help.

  • How often will my child take assessments at Mathnasium?

    At Mathnasium, we use assessments to track your child’s progress towards their goals and make sure they are on the right path to maths success.

    We typically start with an assessment at the beginning of their programme and follow up periodically to keep track of how they’re doing, assess retention of skills and move on to new topics. We work with your child to determine the right frequency for their assessments based on their individual needs and goals.

  • How do you help my student be ready to take the exam?

    Having begun by focusing on a student’s individual learning gaps, we ensure all students have opportunities for rigorous problem-solving and mixed practice. Our proprietary materials encourage students to make links between topics and apply their understanding in unfamiliar contexts. Finally, we make use of baseline papers and as we move closer to the exams tackle exam-style questions with in-session feedback to maximise progress.
