National 5 Maths Tutor Edinburgh

Why is it a good idea to get a tutor for National 5 exams in Scotland? Teachers are constantly faced with the struggle of teaching 30+ students at once, it’s impossible to know how each individual student learns and how best to teach them. COVID-19 has made this even harder with online classes, students often don’t work well if a teacher is talking to a screen of 30 other students.

At Central Tutors we offer Private Maths tuition for students in Scotland. We are able to tailor classes for the individual, focusing on how each student learns and customising each lesson to them. Another advantage to private maths tutoring in Edinburgh is that we can focus on particular areas that a student might be struggling with.

Regular lessons might move on even if a student is struggling, whereas we make sure the student understands each area until they are satisfied with their learning.

Does tutoring actually work?

Tutoring has been around for many years but does it actually work? From our experience, yes it definately improves a student’s understanding of a particular subject. But what solid, scientific evidence is there to support this?

A study done in 1990 found that ‘A British tutoring program involving 2,372 elementary and junior high students who were tutored by trained parents and peers for an average of 8.6 weeks improved their reading comprehension 4.4 times the normal rate and word recognition 3.3 times the normal rate. Four months after the end of tutoring, the average tutee was still improving at twice the normal rate in both comprehension and word recognition.’

Although this isn’t exactly related to maths, it shows the power of tutoring. The same study found that the more frequent and longer duration the tutoring, the more effective the child’s learning is – and this can be applied to any subject. You can read the study yourself here.
