What you'll learn
  • Feel confident tackling algebra exam questions. Parents will gain confidence to help their child understand algebra.
  • Will need access to the internet and laptop, PC or tablet. You will need pens, paper and a whiteboard would help.

Are you worried about your child's maths skills? Are you afraid your child is falling behind in class? It is no secret that today's classrooms are chaotic; teachers struggle to make themselves heard over unruly children who lack discipline. Keen to meet targets, teachers are under pressure to teach to a strict timetable. What does this mean for your child? * They will be forced to move onto the next unit, before they understand the previous unit.

* They will fall further and further behind, because they needed to understand the previous unit in order to cope with the new unit.

*Your child will lose confidence and may struggle to achieve their targets.

WORST CASE SCENARIO- they are moved down to an even more disruptive class and fail to meet their potential.

*Your child may go to their teacher for help, but he/she won't have the time to help. He or she is more concerned with the capable students who will help them achieve their own targets.

*There is a shortage of maths teachers and, due to the demands of the job, your child's maths teacher may become sick, or even leave their job.

Your child may be taught by a supply teacher, or a cover supervisor who doesn't have to be a maths teacher. This can sometimes happen for a long period of time. You might not believe all this, but it's true. Teachers are not miracle workers. They can only do the best they can with the time and resources they have available to them. Times have changed; families have started to realize that they need to help their child with their education. We can't solely rely on schools and teachers to do this for us. With the changes in GCSEs introduced by the UK government recently, it is becoming more critical that parents and carers are aware of the other resources available to them, to help their child get the best education they can give them. Tutors are becoming more affordable, but they are still quite expensive for families on a budget. This is why I have created the Uteach program of courses. Now you can be your own child's maths tutor, for less than the cost of two private tuition sessions!.

But I can't do maths! I hear you say... Don't worry! I will show you, in plain English, how to do each exercise, so you will feel totally confident in front of your child. I have tutored children and adults for almost ten years now, so I know what I'm talking about.

This course contains 9 lessons, which I have personally used with children as part of the government's one to one tuition programme. If you paid a tutor, you would be looking at between $30 to $40 per session.  So, what have you got to lose?  Make today the day you decide to help your child succeed. They will thank you for it. You can also use these skills to tutor other children who are struggling with algebra. 

Who this course is for:
  • Parents whose children need extra support with algebra. Children between 11-16 years doing high school maths.
