choosing a maths course

The questions those considering an 'after-school' maths course

should be asking programme providers...

 

1) DO CHILDREN ALWAYS WORK UNDER DIRECT SUPERVISION ?

 BETTERMATHS:  Yes! Our students are always very closely monitored and instructed.

2) WHAT IS YOUR STUDENT-TO-STAFF RATIO ?

 BETTERMATHS:  There will never be more than 6 children working with a member of staff.

3) IS TUITION PROVIDED AND IS IT ONE-TO-ONE ?

BETTERMATHS:  Yes! Tuition is provided on a one-to-one basis whenever a student starts a new topic/skill or is experiencing difficulties.

4) WHERE DO YOUR COURSE MATERIALS ORIGINATE ?

BETTERMATHS:  We have developed our course specifically to support the National Curriculum in ENGLAND and adapt it as determined by changes in the National Numeracy Strategy. We develop and source the very best materials available – we are not limited to any single materials provider.

5) WHICH LEARNING METHODOLOGIES DO YOU EMPLOY ?

 BETTERMATHS:  We provide a CONCEPTUAL and MULTI SENSORY programme. For many children who struggle with maths learning by rote alone is NOT suitable and can be counter-productive.

6) DO YOU PROVIDE SUPPORT FOR ‘SCHOOL MATHS’, SATS & GCSE ?

 BETTERMATHS:  Yes! In our experience, children are more motivated and make faster progress when they see their ‘after-school’ maths study quickly having a positive impact on what they are doing at school. We provide specific courses for SATs and GCSE preparation.

7) HOW ARE THE FEES WE PAY INVESTED ?

 BETTERMATHS:  We are not a franchise so don’t have to pay franchise fees: these can be up to nearly half of the fees that you pay in some cases! Instead we invest heavily in excellent staff, superbly low staff-to-student ratios and the ongoing development and sourcing of the very best numeracy materials.

8) ARE YOU FLEXIBLE ?

 BETTERMATHS:  Yes! We will agree with you an attendance pattern and homework frequency/volume to suit your child’s schedule and level of dedication.

9) DO YOU COVER A WIDE RANGE OF ESSENTIAL MATHS TOPICS ?

 BETTERMATHS:  Yes! For a full list see our brochures. Unlike one of our competitors, we DO include percentages, probability, ratio & proportion, geometry, etc which are pitched at the right level for the student’s stage in their education and takes their ability into account.

10) DO YOU TEACH OTHER SUBJECTS ?

 BETTERMATHS: No! We specialise in, arrange our classes for and devote all our resources to helping children improve their numeracy.
