Experiencing ‘Maths Block’?​

You may have experienced your child getting ready to start working on a maths problem only to find that even though they read the directions, the problem and the ‘helpful hints’, they seem to experience a ‘maths block’. It often leads to feelings of frustration and panic, as they need guidance on where to begin.

This is where the expert and supportive tutors at Spark Academy will help your child, every step of the way.

Specific & Tailored Support At Every Key Stage

Find out how we support your child by selecting their level:

Key Stage 2

Year 5-6 Maths Tuition

It can be worrying time for your child as they prepare for their SATs and 11+ examinations. There’s a lot to remember and mastery in numbers and operations contributes to being able to problem solve.

Mixing in the apprehension of starting a new school and adapting to big changes means: your child may need a guiding hand to build a positive foundation in preparation for secondary school.

Key Stage 3

Years 7-8 Maths Tuition

Your child is coping with a new routing and deadlines! They are learning considerably more subjects compared to primary school and, as result, can feel overwhelmed. Some students experience anxiety being placed in ‘sets’ according to their ability, which can begin to affect a child’s self-belief and their confidence.

Not only does your child need support with organising their time and developing their study skills, but they also need extra guidance with algebra, geometry and problem solving in preparation frothier GCSEs.  

GCSE

Years 9-11 Maths Tuition

Your child may be struggling with their time management, study plans and meeting deadlines. We understand, because there’s so much to remember! Your child will often find it difficult to recall subject knowledge and apply this to exam questions. They will often resort to cramming in their revision (which is a big no no for us)!

Your child is under a significant amount of stress and can experience anxiety in this highly pressurised environment. In addition, your child is also making some pretty big decisions about their life and need guidance and support for their future opportunities.

A-level

Years 12-13 Maths Tuition

The jump between GCSE and A-level is huge and, although there are less subjects to learn, the depth and intensity of learning is large. Your child may be getting used to an entirely new way of answering exam questions, managing their time efficiently as well as learning independently.

This, coupled with a new environment and forming new social circles, means that your child needs guidance, as they make one of the biggest decisions in their life that underpins their future career prospects and earning potential.
