Welcome to Maths Upgrade!
Maths Upgrade has been designed to help students to improve their Mathematics
skills and confidence by providing an alternative learning environment to normal
Maths Upgrade offers a range of tuition classes which have been designed to help
students with their most common Mathematical needs. Students might choose to
come to the tuition classes over a block of time or long term or as a short term boost
before examinations, the tuition classes are suitable for all of these purposes.
The three tuition classes currently on offer are:
A and A* class
Maths Upgrade tuition classes combine elements of private tuition and extra-
curricular clubs to create a unique type of booster class for your student. Student
numbers are restricted so that a ratio of 10 to 1, students to teachers, is never
exceeded which ensures students get guaranteed quality time with a tutor in every
class. This private tuition model means that the tutor will get to know your students’
needs and will benefit from personalised sessions. Students can tell tutor what they
want whether it is for an exam, going over school work or generally staying one step

Tuition class details
Each tuition class is designed by and run by Miss Sarah Preece and Mrs Georgina

The main focus of each session will be shared with you in advance and is planned
using our high levels of understanding of the content of the current external
qualifications. Time will be set aside in each session for requested topics just like
private tuition. Sessions consist of a range of activities to ensure that students are
learning as much as possible as well as having fun, from competitions and games to
Unlike traditional Maths lessons we use a range of resources and ideas to make
sure that your student will have a different experience to any other tuition or school.
Students can let their tutor know which topics they would like to feature in the next
session either at the end of a session or even by contacting them by email, twitter
or facebook between sessions! We want the content to be personalised as much as
possible just like private tuition.
Each class lasts for one hour, starting and finishing promptly.
All resources provided in the session are yours to keep which can provide a bank of
useful consolidation materials later down the line.
