GCSE Maths and English Tutors


GCSE Maths tutor

In today's world it is necessary for most occupations and further education courses to gain at least a “C” grade at GCSE Maths. At On-Target Tuition, we aim to pinpoint a student's areas of weakness and bring them to a level that enables success at the test.
For those students who are doing either foundation or the higher tier, a thorough grasp of topics covered in the curriculum is required to achieve their best grade and a knowledge of how these topics relate to each other. 

Because we work to the individual needs of the students, we can establish why a student fails to grasp a topic and correct any mistakes to ensure the student now has all the background needed to understand.  

Our combination of targeted reinforcement of mathematical facts and past paper practice will ensure your child is ready for the test.

GCSE English tutor

Understanding the content of written text and being able to extract information or data from it is a very important skill. Achieving a good result in GCSE English can be surprisingly difficult. Unlike other subjects, there are few facts. Rather, GCSE English is almost entirely focussed on acquiring skills – principally reading and writing.

At On Target Tuition, we give students the confidence to write an essay with fluency and structure, developing their comments and observations appropriately for an examiner.  

We concentrate on improving comprehension, spelling, grammar and essay writing skills to produce a well-rounded student, ready for the exams.

As the students approach their exams they are able to work through past papers under exam conditions, which are marked with the examination board's criteria in mind.

Testimonials


‘Thanks to On Target for the inspirational and enjoyable English tuition you provided our son, Matthew, for his GCSE’s.  
When we engaged On Target, Matthew lacked both ability and confidence, particularly in English Language. Your tuition transformed him! He really enjoyed the sessions and found an appreciation for and understanding of English that I think will stay with him. His confidence soared, as did his ability and we were delighted with his GCSE results. He would not have achieved his grades without you.
I would highly recommend On Target to any parent who thinks their child might benefit from some extra, quality help outside the school environment.

‘Trevor has assisted me during my GCSE mathematics course. He has allowed me to develop my skills in problem solving, algebra and in a variety of other topics relational to mathematics. Over the year I have spent with my tutor, I have improved by four grades (E to A) and have been able to use my skills in a variety of other topics. The comfortable and relaxed environment creates a sense of calm which allowed me to focus more clearly on the tasks set. The small class size ensures that we are all sufficiently catered to and ensures any questions can be conclusively answered. The homework set reinforces the work done with in the session and any queries can be dealt with during the following lesson. Trevor’s attitude of forming an understanding of a question with the student and developing it is one of the reasons I have changed from a back-of-the-class student to considering pursuing an A-Level in mathematics.’
