Maths Tutors in West Bridgford and Private Maths Lessons

Mathematics can be a hard and sometimes complicated subject especially when a child is not a natural mathematician. Given that West Bridgford School successfully applied for and gained the specialist technology academy status, a good grounding in Mathematics could be very helpful. In the classroom, your child may find that the teacher just does not have the time to offer the one-to-one tuition that he or she needs. It is not the fault of the teacher or of the school; given class size and lesson length, there is theoretically the chance to have between 1 and 2 minutes of individual tuition. If your child is not a natural at mathematics that will probably not be enough. That is just a theoretical figure, in practical terms, it is likely to be a lot less. Many children are not happy about asking questions in front of their peers and so a lot of them will find that their understanding of maths is incomplete, making it even harder.

For these youngsters, tuition through private maths lessons is the way forward. Your child receives a terms worth of individual contact in a single session! The number of lessons required with a private Maths tutor will depend on how difficult your child finds mathematics. A couple of hours may suffice or perhaps a regular once a month meeting. It doesn't have to be every week.

Nottingham is lucky in the sense that the University is home to the Centre for the Study of Mathematics Education which can benefit local schools as well as those in higher education in Nottinghamshire.

Free Maths tip - expanding brackets

Expanding brackets is something that can cause problems, however, with a methodical approach, you will soon undertand the principles behind it.

At a basic level you might be asked to expand 3(x + 6). The number immediately before the brackets indicates that everything inside has to be MULTIPLIED by the number. In this case it is 3. So you have 3 x's and 3 6's, or written mathematically, the answer is 3x + 18. Why 18 ... 3 times 6.

A more complicated case could be to expand 4xy(3x - y2). Apply the same logic, everything inside the brackets has to be multiplied by 4xy so 4xy times 3x = 12x2y (multiply the numbers first ... 3 x 4 = 12, then deal with the letters xy times x ... x2y because x times x = x2) and 4xy times y2 = 4xy3 (whoa, before you go any further try to work out why). The answer is therfore 4xy(3x - y2) = 12x2y - 4xy3.
