Adult Tuition – Improving Your Confidence in Maths
I offer maths tuition for adults. Each lesson or group of lessons is designed specifically for your needs.
Maths lessons can cover anything from everyday basic use of maths up to preparation for various exams (including GCSE, Functional Skills, Numeracy Skills tests for trainee teachers, Numerical Reasoning Tests for interviews, e.g. RANRA etc).
I charge £44 per hour of tuition.
"Nicola has been very supportive by helping me to fill in the blanks left over from my high school education. This has been crucial to improving my confidence in mathematics, which in turn is allowing me to work towards developing new skills which I can utilise in the workplace."
"Just to let you know I got my C maths grade finally and was accepted unconditionally in to uni for computer forensics last week. Thank you so much for your help I couldn't have passed without you."
"I approached Nicola to help me improve the skills required to pass numerical reasoning tests for graduate schemes. She was very friendly and professional and made the effort to fit me in as soon as she could. After a few sessions I felt much more confident in my ability and passed the required tests. She explains things very clearly and I'd highly recommend her tutoring service."
Maths covered can be refresher of basic maths concepts, from how to add/multiply etc for everyday maths skills, can be for taking professional exams, whether for teacher training or for other jobs where perhaps an online skills test (numerical reasoning) is required prior to interview.

Did you hate maths at school? Perhaps there were some basic concepts you didn’t understand?
Do you feel flustered when working out maths in the supermarket, in the shop, or after going out for dinner with a group of friends?
Are you are a parent who wants to help their child with their maths homework, but you don’t understand the way they teach maths these days?
Don’t worry – I can help. I offer bespoke maths lessons, designed to work at your pace.
Maths GCSE – do you have an opportunity or a need to retake your GCSE maths? The syllabus might have changed since you took yours so you want some guidance.
Perhaps you have forgotten everything you learnt at school, or it never really made sense when you were younger?
One-to-one maths tuition can help you learn / relearn all the concepts, improve your confidence, and without any embarrassment you might feel with not “getting maths”.

We work together through sample materials with the aim of improving your confidence, speed and ability at completing the questions.

I help with various mathematical aspects, improving your confidence at work.
