How to pass GCSE maths foundation 2020 Make Maths Fun

3:25 AM 0

Time to Pass your GCSE Maths or SATs

An overwhelming majority of pupils do not reach their full potential in maths and that is not because they are not ‘good’ at it. Most of the time, they repeatedly fail either because they have special educational needs, bored with the maths at school,  cannot understand the maths concepts and or have a  teacher/ tutor that does not make it interesting.
I passed! 
The challenge for tutors is how to offer the assistance required to build their confidence and enjoyment of maths. Maths is fun!   Children should start learning the basic concept when they are young. Do not leave it until there GCSE exams.  However, even if your child is not predicted a pass or they state they hate maths, there is still hope.  They can still get that much-anticipated C (under new guidelines - a 4) and pass their GCSE Maths exams.

What I do…
I have been teaching math GCSE and primary maths  online via my interactive academy (also face-to-face lessons) for many years.  I have a Higher Teaching Qualification in maths and many years’ experience teaching maths / numeracy  to children that find maths a challenge.  I help prepare them mentally and emotionally for their exams! It does not matter if your child understands maths or even likes mathematics at all. In the end, they will surely love the utterly heart-filling sensation of being an achiever in maths!

You can find testimonials from parents and students here!

I find profound gratification in introducing a child that doesn’t like mathematics to the beautiful world of maths. Truth be told, I am not too fond of same-old, same-old teaching methods that bore the pants off students!  Instead, don’t be surprised if you hear enthusiastic discussions and laughter during my lessons – both for primary maths and secondary school maths.  My lessons theatrical and interactive; this helps children start to enjoy the learning process. And, trust me, it works!  My pass rate is normally 90%, with most the students getting a 4 or above (the old C level) and obtaining a good result in their SATs test.  

It is essential for a child to be able to trust you, your knowledge, and your pure intention to help them achieve in maths. Plus, teaching has to be fun, too! For that reason, my lessons are much more than a strict student-teacher session; they are creative, effective, and enjoyable, all at the same time.

I recall a teenager that had failed his GCSE three times before he came to me. After teaching him for 2 months, he passed with 175/200!  

How I do it…
I use several different teaching methods, depending on the child’s idiosyncrasy and particular requirements or needs. For instance, we may: watch a video which I discuss with them; play an educational board game with other students; play games online against each other; I teach from the whiteboard and they teach me and their friends what they learn from the whiteboard!  It is critical for me to have students teach their peers on the wipe board as I have seen exceptional learning results from following this technique.

Also, expect your child to have homework on the given topic to ensure they can do what needs to be done. To make sure they can do what is required, I build a subject gradually:
1.                  First, I teach a small part.
2.                  Then, I teach another part when I know for sure that the child has a full understanding of what has been previously taught.
3.                  I then teach the entire topic from start to end.
4.                  I give a test to check how well the child has comprehended the specific subject.
5.                  I re-teach the same topic 6 weeks later (but change it up and teach it quicker). A test may also be handed out at this point to help build on prior knowledge.

Working Hand in Hand with Parents
For all this to work, I really need parents/ carers to be on board. You and I together can make great strides and get the results we all want. This is teamwork, so I always appreciate supportive parents. If you believe in your child’s abilities and skills, your son or daughter will know, and will give their best to this joint effort. I have seen this happen repeatedly excel.

2. If a litre of cola costs £3.15, how much will you pay for a third of a litre?
3. If a football club offers the same discount for all season tickets - Main Stand - $50 for single entry, £300 for a season; Stand 2 - £35 for single entry, £210 for a season; Stand 3 - £25 for single entry, £150 for a season - what would the price be for a Stand 4 season ticket, where a single entry costs £21?

A few tips to help with calculations

1: Find Pairs of Numbers that Add to 10
2: Fives Times: If you have a multiplication of five, then an easy way to find the answer is to half the multiplied number and times by ten.
For example: 28 * 5 = (28 / 2) * 10 = 140
3: To find 10 percent just divide by 10. To find 20 percent just double 10 percent.
10 percent of 100 is £10. 20 percent is £20 pounds. 
4: 11 times a  number. 11 x 16  is -  Separate out the 1 and 6 ( from the number 16) Then add the one and six together and put it in the middle   1 7 6. The answer to 11 times 16 is 176!  Try it for 14 times 11 and check your answer on a calculator.
