JTC Education offers a unique approach to maths education, focused around enhancing students' abilities through innovative tutoring methodologies. Among these is the Red Pen Study Method, which utilises careless error sheets to monitor and mitigate careless mistakes. We also promote the use of tricky question logs, enabling students to compile challenging problems for targeted revision, thereby eliminating wasted time on familiar questions. At JTC Education, a strong emphasis is placed on teaching problem-solving skills, achieved by generalising difficult problems and exploring potential related questions.
At KS3, we prioritise building strong foundations. GCSE concepts will build on those seen during year 7 and year 9.
Rinse-and repeat methods, which are low-hanging fruits, will always be some of the first material covered. However, for students working with us for prolonged periods of time we always aim to improve problem-solving skills.
A level maths is a notable step up from GCSE Maths. A meticulous and clear strategy can really help students arrive at their A level Maths exam with heightened confidence.
The STEP is a mathematics entrance exam to universities such as Cambridge and Warwick. It is notably harder than A level Maths and requires an expert STEP Maths tutor, like those provided by JTC Education, to be able to deliver it.
