A few years ago there was a major change in the Maths curriculum all the way from Year 1 up to Year 11. This change has meant there is far more to lesson but also far more problem solving.
These changes have meant that we’ve had to adapt our teaching methods to continue to get great results. with an extra focus on the areas students find most difficult.
Over years of teaching and observation, we’ve been able to see the areas of the curriculum that students find challenging – whether the students are working behind, ahead or at an average level.
Broadly speaking we’ll cover the Key Stage 3 national currculum for students in Year 7 and Year 8 but the actual topics are adapted to the ability and current working level of the student.
For students in Year 9, Year 10 and Year 11 we start putting more of a focus on the areas they need to cover for their GCSE exams. By this time students will be seperated into Higher or Foundation allowing us to further diffreniate the teaching.
Above all, every student will do a healthy dose of recap work and problem solving to ensure that they’re developing the skills required to tackle a broad range of questions.
At Paro Tuition though, it’s not just about what we teach but also how we teach. We’ve come to realise that the best Maths teaching is still largely based around traditional methods: whiteboards, textbooks and breaking down complicated concepts into more manageable chunks. We’ve found this approach to work well and some of the latest research agrees with us.
Our teaching methodology is tried and tested so you can be sure we’ll get the best out of your child no matter their current working level.
