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 you? 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 mood. 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 Created using Zinepal.

Teachers are split into academic and pastoral. If you don’t know who you can speak to, please ask and the teachers will tell you. Be open to the advise that they give you. You may need to take things further if things are really serious. October 21st, 2013 Author: Sati “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. 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. 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 technique. 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. We are looking for highly motivated Mathematics Teachers with a QTS or equivalent qualification and e 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 develop exam technique. ncourage mothers to apply for one of our part time vacancies.

  • 3. October 23rd, 2013 Published by: jimmy121 be really challenging and can negatively impact their grade point average. 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. 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 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 from fear. 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 healthy snacks. “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 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. “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 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. “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 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” April 15th, 2013 Author: amanjot “Don’t get behind with your schoolwork.” – Phillip Oluwo For more hot tips or to discuss these, please follow us @elitetuition or like our Facebook Page. August 22nd, 2013 Author: Sati 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 Are you a student who struggles with Maths? Are you parent who wonders how your child learns?

  • 4. October 23rd, 2013 Published by: jimmy121 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. without anyone or anything assuring you that you are doing questions correctly. It is best to emulate that as closely as possible. So what is a cognitive assessment? 1) Sit the paper under exam conditions. Do not use any study aids or guides to help you. 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. So when doing a past paper: 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 technique. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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 MARK. 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? Click here to arrange your free cognitive assessment.

February 6th, 2013 Author: Sati Are you studying Core 4 in school? Ever looked and thought “This exam is going to be impossible?” Are you looking over C3 and C4 and thinking “This is going to pull my grades down.” Are you shooting for the A* Grade? Last year, 72% of our A2 students scored the A* grade. Below is a short extract of the advice pack we give all of our A2 students. Exam Guru, Brian Martin lists the key advice all students should focus on when studying the A* modules for A Level Maths. • Make sure you remember how to use surds. Examiners still use surds as a way to make A2 exam questions more difficult. 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, • Quadratics are a popular way to test students.

  • 5. October 23rd, 2013 surprised at the number of times you need to use quadratics to get to the answer. • Know your trigonometricidentities. You may convince yourself that you are given all the identities you need in your formulae booklet, but if you need to look them up, you are far from ready. • Algebraic Long Division strikes again. Thought you left this at C2? Think again. Anything taught from C1 and C2 is fair game for exam questions in C3 and C4. This particular technique is increasingly being used in exam questions. • Know the rules oflogarithms. ln 9 = 2 ln 3. Did you know that? You need to. • Don’t leave anything to the last minute. I’m yet to meet a student to has an A* in A-Level Maths who simply left learning C3 or C4 to the last minute. All of the A* students I have every met studied consistently throughout the term.

January 29th, 2013 Author: Sati With exams creeping around the corner, we at ELITE Tuition wish to offer the best advice to pupils revising and parents looking for ways to help their child succeed. Below are two PDF booklets designed by Educational Psychologists, Teachers, Parents and successful former students outlining ways students and parents can boost their revision and help get the top grade in Mathematics. Best of luck! December 30th, 2012 Author: Sati • Do EVERY past paper. Students at ELITE are required to complete the past papers, the Solomon papers, our own practise papers and the BlueStar Workshops. Our results is the result. Do them also. • Ask your teacher / ELITE Tutor if there’s anything you don’t understand. Believe me when I say that your teacher is more than happy to sit with you after school and go through anything you don’t understand 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.

  • 6. October 23rd, 2013 Published by: jimmy121 were successful at GCSE do not achieve the grade they want at AS Level. Why is this? W Everstone - Started with a grade D, achieved A*. Studies Law at UCL 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 material overlapping. GCSE 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. “When I started sixth form, I had to re-sit GCSE Maths in November and I didn’t think I could get prepared in time. But the ELITE GCSE Re-sit programme covered everything I needed to know. Thank you. G – Patel – Started with a grade E, Achieved C (Foundation Tier). Online Maths Tuition Source: http://www.elitetuition.com/onlinemathstutor/ 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. August 29th, 2012 Author: Sati “I was really impressed with the consultation and the lessons were amazing. I loved going to tuition and really got along with the classmates. I found school really easy too. I definitely think it was ELITE that made me want to take Maths at Uni.” C Page – Started with ELITE, achieved A* and A*. Studies Maths at Imperial “Maths wasn’t my strongest subject but after learning with ELITE, I decided to go for the special paper. My tutor pushed me to apply to Cambridge and I never dreamt I could even get an interview. But the Oxbridge support helped me all of the way.” B Fox – Started with a grade B, achieved A. Studies Medicine at Cambridge "They formally promised me that I'd get an A*. At first I didn't think that was possible. But the way my tutor explained things to me, I just felt like everything clicked. I was getting everything right in school and I felt so much cleverer. My school predicted me a B Grade and I achieved an A*. I took a gap year and ELITE also helped me apply for University. Thank you." Created using Zinepal.
