A-Level Maths Preparation
at A-level is a whole different ball-game to GCSE. Some topics
you'll leave behind and never use again, but any lingering confusion
over quadratics, graphs of functions or trigonometry will spell trouble
once you start year 12.
My A-Level Maths Preparartion
course is designed to be taken by students who have completed, or are
about to complete, their Maths GCSE and plan to start A-level Maths or
Further Maths in the near future. It includes diagnostic tests to identify key areas of focus, provision of a carefully chosen text book with notes, examples and questions for home study, unlimited email support throughout the course, and two hours of one-to-one tuition,
either in person or via Skype if more convenient. Additional
support will also be available, if required, once the A-level course
The course will be tailored to your specific
needs, so in addition to the diagnostic assessment I will need to know
the course you are preparing for (eg Maths or Further Maths, including,
ideally, which of the optional modules you will cover). As well
as shoring up GCSE knowledge and understanding, the course is aimed at
making you ready for the demands and expectations of an A-level, and a
general grasp of the content you will study will be beneficial,
especially in the first year.
Some students may already be taking additional qualifications in preparation for A-level, such as Applications of Mathematics, Methods in Mathematics Further Maths Level 2,
Additional Mathematics or a Free-Standing Maths Qualification.
These are especially helpful to students of Further Maths, who
will be expected to hit the ground running to an even greater extent
than those taking the single A-level.
