Frequently Asked Questions

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

  • How do I know if my child is keeping up with their classmates?

    A child is working at or above expectations when they confidently work through their homework without needing extensive help. Typically, they don’t talk negatively about the subject, and their grades or targets in maths are generally on par with those in their other subjects.

    Children who are struggling to keep up may become anxious about maths or disengage and avoid it whenever possible. Their maths grades or targets are typically lower than what they achieve in their other subjects.

  • My child needs help with maths. What can I do to help them?

    Whilst it may be easy to encourage and support your child, teaching them yourself can be tricky. The best thing you can do to help your child with maths is to enrol them in tutoring with our specialist maths tutors.

    At Mathnasium, we provide comprehensive secondary school maths help customised to your child’s needs. Our specially trained instructors can help your child become engaged, excited, and well prepared for maths ready for their GCSE course.

  • How can I make sure my secondary school student is ready for their GCSE maths course?

    Enrolling your child at Mathnasium for Key Stage Three maths help means your child will always have the personalised help they need to shine — now and in their GCSEs. Our secondary maths tutors can do much more than provide maths homework help. They work with each child on their individual learning gaps and can challenge, boost, or build your child’s skills.

  • Are there ways to prepare my child for secondary school maths?

    While one of the best ways is to enrol them at Mathnasium for maths help at the level they need it, you can also make maths a part of your child’s daily life. Be positive about maths, and make it fun. Encourage your child to solve everyday problems and use technology to develop spreadsheets and graphs. Cultivate a “can do” attitude at home and be unwaveringly positive about maths, however you feel yourself.

  • What do children learn in maths at Key Stage 3?

    Children build on their Primary School learning through Key Stage Three and explore Number, Ratio, Proportion and Rates of Change, Algebra, Geometry, Statistics and Probability in greater depth. How they progress through the curriculum varies from school to school but at Mathnasium we focus on the individual topics they need support with.

    If you feel your child at any time needs help with their maths, our specialist maths tutors are ready!

  • Are there maths tutors for secondary school children?

    Yes! At Mathnasium, our secondary school maths tutoring is done in-person and online in formats that are effective, fun and engaging. We target your child’s individual learning gaps to support the maths they are learning in school.

    Students who work with our maths tutors improve their confidence along with their critical thinking and problem-solving skills. Our tutors can provide homework help to students at every ability level. It’s all part of what makes Mathnasium unique, and it works.

  • 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.

  • Can my student retake an assessment?

    At Mathnasium, your child will be closely monitored during their initial assessment to ensure they’re taking the most appropriate one for them, so there’s no need for a retake. In situations where your child may be feeling unwell or nervous, we may continue the assessment later. Ultimately, our focus is on using the initial assessment results to develop a tailored learning plan that caters to your child's individual needs and aspirations.
