EBC Training Academy’s numeracy tutors provide tutoring to children and adults who would like help with numeracy, whether for success at school or simply for using numbers confidently in everyday life.
Numeracy problems in the UK
A recent Skills for Life survey found that almost 17 million people in the UK have numeracy skills below those needed for the lowest grade at GCSE.
In 2011, around 20% of 11-year-olds in England left primary school without achieving the level of mathematics expected of them. At GCSE level, a massive 42% of pupils failed to pass GCSE mathematics at grade C or above.
How EBC Training Academy tutoring can help
EBC Training Academy believes that all of these children and adults could develop their numeracy skills significantly with one-to-one tuition from a private tutor.
Our numeracy tutors have helped many primary school children to get to grips with times tables, mental arithmetic, fractions and all the elements addressed in key stages 1 & 2.
Our tutors have also helped many secondary school children to understand the mathematical processes, concepts and skills required at key stages 3 & 4 and to prepare for their GCSE Mathematics exam.
Our numeracy tutors have also helped many adults to improve their numeracy skills so that they can use numbers more confidently on a daily basis, enabling them to take better control of their finances, understand statistics reported in the media, calculate journey times more accurately and feel more confident when out shopping.
Our maths and numeracy tutors understand that many people struggle with numeracy and find maths challenging but believe that, with one-to-one support and an individualised approach, the challenges that make mastering numeracy and learning maths difficult can be overcome.
With a private tutor, the pupil is in control of the pace so can avoid feeling frustrated or overwhelmed, as can happen in the classroom. Our tutors always aim to create a non-stressful, supportive working environment that encourages confidence building and steady progress.
