I began tutoring with Adam for maths GCSE because of the new harder 9-1 syllabus. I wanted a grade 9 but did not think I could get it without some extra help.
I found our weekly lessons relevant to me because we made a personal plan based on what topics I found hardest in our first lesson. There were some gaps in my knowledge from school including set notation which is a new topic to 9-1 so that was really useful to find out. We practiced and discussed challenging grade 9 level problems from the topics I found hardest each week, and I was impressed by how flexible Adam was to take each lesson in a direction that was best for me, and spend time discussing strategies and methodology rather than just telling me the 'answer'.
I managed to achieve the grade 9 in maths so I am really pleased with the result from tuition. It will help me when applying to study medicine, because universities are likely to put more emphasis on GCSE's with the new A-level being taken at the end of year 13. Thank you to a hard working tutor for helping me get a 9
