Ever had an argument with your school teacher? Do you
sometimes feel that Sir has it in for you? The teachers at ELITE
Tuition have written this to help you.
Studying for GCSEs and A-Levels at school can be difficult. If
the constant piles of homework aren’t enough, there are the
pressures of doing well and issues with your friends to deal
with. The last thing you need is a teacher who just seems to
hate you. What can you do?
This may seem rather difficult to believe but the teacher that
gives you the hardest time is probably the teacher who cares
about you the most.
Remember that teachers are people too. They have to go
home and do things that can be fun or stressful too. You may
not realise that teachers are also under a lot of pressure. All
teachers answer to someone, no matter if they are a Head of
Department of even the Head Teacher. So what can you do if
you find that your teacher is just constantly behind hard on
Try saying “Thank you for the lesson.” at the end of each lesson.
Even if it feels fake and insincere, your teacher will appreciate
that you took time to walk over and say it. It creates a better
Ask yourself “Have I done what the teacher has asked of me?”.
This may be the most common cause to getting told off by a
teacher. It’s one thing to talk in class, but quite another if you
have repeatedly been asked to stop talking.
Sometimes issues persist. Though this is rare, it is our
responsibility to advise you on what to do if you feel that your
issues with your teacher are causing you real stress and it

begins to affect your health or your school work. In these
situations, it is very important to tell your form tutor, and your

Having a baby is an exciting time for a mother, but giving up
work for a year can be a career killer. With over 60% of first
time mothers choosing not to return to work, this can hit the
family income hard. We at ELITE Tuition believe we have
found the answer.
With over 95% of our tutorial sessions taking place over Skype,
we have opened up our recruitment to allow mothers with new
borns (from 2 months onwards)to apply and work from home,
teaching our easy to deliver mathematics programme.
ELITE Tuition has an ever growing army of young mothers
and other qualified mathematics teachers, whom for various
reasons have not been able to return to the classroom. We
recognise that our teacher colleagues are able to contribute to
our teaching arsenal and are delighted at the way we can offer
exciting teaching opportunities which are consistent to their
parental duties and personal circumstances.
We wish to open this platform of opportunity to all whom have
made career sacrifices to be at home. Be it for a new born
baby, or to take care of a loved one, dealing with an illness or
to consider a possible career change, working from home as an
ELITE Tutor may be the best way forward.
We are looking for highly motivated Mathematics Teachers
with a QTS or equivalent qualification and e
ncourage mothers to apply for one of our part time vacancies.

ELITE Tuition are proud to win the Award for Best London
Maths Tutors having achieved our sixth consecutive 100% A /
A* for A-Level Maths, and a third year running at 100% A* at
GCSE Mathematics – Higher Tier.
“The key to becoming a successful Maths Tutor is to carefully
monitor how the student is learning mathematics and focusing
on how to apply these to unfamiliar techniques.” says Ian Giles,
Co-Founder and expert maths tutor.
With the rising competition for spaces at top universities
and graduate jobs, having a Grade A in GCSE or A-Level
Mathematics has never been more critical. Many maths tutors
will offer superb teaching and coaching but fail to achieve
our level of success. We believe that a maths tutor should
be a qualified teacher with a proven track record of teaching
excellence and intimate knowledge of exam technique. There
are vast quantities of resources available for GCSE and A-Level
Mathematics and yet only a small amount of these reflect the
style and structure of exam questions. It is the job of a good
maths tutor to pick these out and use them to develop exam
The ELITE Tuition teaching programmes follow our own
carefully designed teaching resources w
hich are tailored to each exam board, and focuses on every
permutation to which an examiner can test the topic. This
preparation has not
yet failed to yield in Grade As for our students.
We know of no other maths tutors in London or anywhere else
in the UK whom can boast such a claim. However, we would
welcome to hear from our colleagues from other teaching
institutions who would like to learn our winning formula for
achieving Grades As in the hope that we can raise the standard
of teaching and learning in the UK.
If you are a maths tutor, please contact us so we can share our
best practises and raise the standard of tutoring.
ELITE Tuition regularly posts articles which offer valuable
advice and resources for students taking GCSE and A-Level
Mathematics as well as the best way to tackle past papers and

Congratulations! You have just got your results for your
GCSEs and are probably having mixed emotions. Some of you
will be very happy and looking forward to celebrating, while
others will feel that they could have done better.
For those of you going into Sixth Form or College to start your
AS studies, these following students have kindly given their top
pieces of advice in hope that you will not only have a great time
but also get the best grades.
“This year, there are no January sittings so MAKE SURE you
do all past papers early. You’ll need time to figure out how
the A-Level style questions are different. If you rely on natural
talent, you will fail.” - Simon York
“Universities will look at what you get in your AS exams, and
schools will make predicted grades based on your AS exam
results. Make sure you ace these if you want to go to a top
university.” – Hannah O’Pray
“Everyone told me GCSEs are hard but I did last minute
revision and got As. I tried that at AS level and I got Ds. A
Level isn’t hard but it certainly isn’t something you can do last
minute.” – Nikesh Patel
“The questions in the textbooks don’t necessarily match the
questions in the exam. Make sure you do all of the past
papers.” – Rajesh Pandya
“Make sure you ask your teacher if there’s something you do
not understand. A-Levels go deeper into things and topics
build on each other. If you are unsure about something, don’t
ignore it.” – Matthew Wallice
“Ask A2 students for help. They are in the college with you and
they have already gone through your year.” – Graham James
“Pick a few past papers that you will never look at while
studying so that you can use them as an authentic mock. You
won’t see your real exam beforehand and you need to practise
that.” – Manish Joshi
“Don’t get behind with your schoolwork.” – Phillip Oluwo

Maths is one of those subjects that more kids struggle with
than any other in the academic curriculum. Many children,
kids and teens need tutors to survive maths programs because
they can be very difficult. But a maths tutors are not just
for children, they are also for college and university students
trying to get their education. Unfortunately, maths courses can
be really challenging and can negatively impact their grade
Elite Tuition is an online math tutoring program that is that
offers you a guarantee of developing high understanding and
therefore achieve high grades. All you need is a computer,
broadband connection, headset, an email account and a
printer and you are ready.
Top tips of a maths tutor for his/her students:
1) Make sure you complete all assignments – This is important
because the assignments are the training ground for all exams.
2) Take courses that you know you can achieve. – Do not
take unnecessary courses that will be hard for you and add
pressure. Take the necessary courses for your study plan.
3) Make sure your attitude is correct for exams – Preparing
for an exam and completing an exam is very stressful. Many
students are so afraid of their grade that impairs their
preparation. Make sure you are ready, and emotionally free
4) Eat smart – Yes, eating is important when studying but
eating the healthy foods is even more important. Avoid sugars
and chocolates and try to eat proper meals, fruits or other
5) Avoid social media – When students are revising they
should not be on social media networks such as Facebook
and Twitter. These are huge distractions for students. Maths
requires your full attention and you should not allow
controllable distractions to detour you from your studies.
6) Look to the future – No matter how overwhelmed you
may feel, the revision period will be over very quickly so keep
looking to the future.
7) Don’t let all the work get to you – Yes, there is a lot of work
but it can all get done.
8) Place Post-It note – Place post it notes on each question that
you do not understand so your tutor can review and make sure
you are able to answer all the questions.
9) Avoid study aids – When doing a past paper, make sure to
avoid study aids or guides to help you. Treat it as an exam.
10) Focus on learning – Reset your focus to learning rather
than achieving a specific goal. Do not think in terms of “if I pass
or fail”, but rather, “I need to be able to answer the questions”

Are you a student who struggles with Maths? Are you parent
who wonders how your child learns? We at ELITE Tuition
believe that identifying the way a student thinks is vital to

ensuring they achieve the A grade. It is for this reason
that founder and leading Educational Learning Specialist, Sati
Kudhal ensures all of our prospective students receive a free
detailed cognitive assessment.
So what is a cognitive assessment?
A cognitive assessment is a thorough analysis of how a student
learns, processes information, sorts and allocates data in the
mind and how the student recalls information. But how does
this help a student do learn Maths better? Our brains uses
unique systems to process and recall information. Knowing
about these while teaching and learning allows a student to
learn more effectively. Much like trying to drive a car in
only one gear, learning without thinking about how we are
processing information ultimately limits our speed.
Our cognitive assessment looks at many factors such as how
the student records information, create systems to manipulate
data and also regards the student’s behaviour to difficulties.
The one thing that we can all be certain is that a student
will get stuck at some point. With the pressures on the
examination boards to make GCSE and A-Level exams harder,
well prepared students are still finding exam questions tricky
and unfamiliar. It is for this reason that we identify how
students currently react when stuck, and formally teach them
ways to better problem solve in these situations.
A common misconception is that a student is either a visual,
auditory or kinaesthetic learner. This is about as accurate
as saying all students who don’t get it right away, never
will. In truth, we all employ these learning styles and have
sophisticated hybrids of these strategies. Identifying which
ones a student uses and training on how to use it effectively is
how anyone can get an A at A-Level Maths. Don’t believe us?
Click here to see our Testimonials.
So why aren’t schools performing these tests on all students?
A detailed cognitive assessment for the learning of
Mathematics is an expensive process. In addition, there
are not many people who are trained at performing these
assessments. We hope that in time, educational psychologists
will performing these assessments on all students so to help
them achieve their full potential.
So why limit your mind to snail pace when after a short
assessment, you’ll get keys to turbo boosting your learning?

As we approach the summer exams, students will start their
campaign of past papers. There are many Do’s and Don’t’s
when it comes to doing past papers. The key point to remember
that the real exam will have to be sat under exam conditions,
without anyone or anything assuring you that you are doing
questions correctly. It is best to emulate that as closely as
So when doing a past paper:
1) Sit the paper under exam conditions. Do not use any study
aids or guides to help you.
2) Do not mark the paper until you have completed it. It is
tempting to look at the mark scheme while you are doing
the paper, but this is terrible for developing examination
3) Mark the paper harshly. If you’re unsure if what you’ve
written should earn the mark, then you probably haven’t. But
do feel free to check with your school / college teacher.
4) Make sure you understand why you didn’t get the marks on
the questions which you’ve done incorrectly. Do you need to
revise this topic, or did you simply not spot the trick.
5) Place a Post-It note on each question you still do not
understand for your teacher. Go through how to do these
questions and make sure you know how to get EVERY SINGLE
6) Make a special folder for all the questions to which you
found a trick. Review this regularly.

Now that you have received your GCSE grades and are looking
to commence your AS courses, we at ELITE feel it is best
to share some pearls of wisdom from our expert tutors and
former AS Maths students.
Parents, teachers and other advisers insist that your A-Levels
are perhaps the most important exams you will sit and that
they are quite challenging. Unfortunately, many students who

were successful at GCSE do not achieve the grade they want at
AS Level. Why is this?
A recent study at the Department of Educational has
found that many of these students fail to work consistently
throughout the AS year and struggle with their exam
preparation. In a recent survey, students admit that they
underestimate how much more difficult the AS examinations
are compared to the GCSE examinations, despite some of the
The survey also outlined a common belief that AS exams
were easier than they were advised. Many of the students
surveyed recalled being told their GCSE examinations would
be challenging and despite this, many students were still
able to achieve strong grades with last minute preparation.
Unfortunately, the AS Maths course is significantly more
challenging and students who leave their preparation until the
last minute achieve a grade lower than their potential.
With the rising competition for top universities, a poor grade
at AS can mean the end of a dream. The travesty here is that
a student needs to know the correct way to work consistently
throughout the year and the correct way to prepare for AS and
A-Level examinations. It would seem there is no other way to
avoid this mistake.
We aim to help students taking the AS Mathematics course by
providing short term goals and structured support to ensure
that at all times, the student is on course for the A grade. We
advise our students to pay careful attention to school, gain
exam technique and experience early and self assess to ensure
they are prepared.
