Maths A-level Teacher Assessed Grades Course
These three day-courses are designed to help students prepare for their teacher-graded assessments. Our tutors will review key sections of the syllabus, enabling students to identify and fill in any gaps in their knowledge and strengthen their understanding of the syllabus covered thus far. It’s likely that teachers will use students’ past paper performance to inform the grades they award. Our tutors will use past paper questions throughout their teaching to consolidate knowledge and demonstrate how to apply it to exam questions, in order to consistently score top marks. Students will leave the course with renewed confidence and a sense of mastery of the course content.
Learners are provided with high-quality, comprehensive and original material including notes, guides and question booklets. These resources have been specially created to supplement the learning experience and support students beyond the course.

Our maths courses are advertised as being for Edexcel. However, they are still suitable for students studying other exam boards. The A-level maths topics are universal so content covered on the course is relevant for all A-level Math students. The only thing to note is that questions used in teaching are taken from Edexcel past papers.

Sam was amazing, really engaged with everyone, had good knowledge of the syllabus and focused on areas we found challenging more if asked to do so.
[Aidin] was very precise about common mistakes students made and made sure every one of us understood the topic and question he’d just shown before he moved on. We were all very engaged in the lesson, and by helping us understand it, he made us enjoy it. Keep up the great teaching!
