IGCSE Courses

IGCSE Higher level Maths Courses

These courses are designed for pupils wanting to prepare for the New Edexcel syllabus A IGCSE Higher level maths exams in the summer sitting, they cover all aspects of the new 1-9 syllabus.

Full preparation for the IGCSE exams is given, including revision timetables with revision sessions in the run up to the exams and in depth past paper practice with focus on exam technique and understanding exam questions.  Great care is taken to not just teach the topics but to make sure the students fully understand the topics and are well prepared and practiced with relevant exam questions. My aim is to help students fulfil their potential and achieve the best grade they can.

The weekly classes are backed up with weekly handouts, weekly homework sheets with answers provided separately.  Every half term there are topic tests designed to help the student revise the recent topics and prepare the students for the actual exams.  In the run up to the exams I provide extra sessions to go through past paper questions or to answer students’ individual queries.

 

Online Two Year IGCSE Higher Level Maths Course 

This course covers the entire Edexcel Higher IGCSE syllabus A including all the basic content.  Students starting this course in September 2020 are aiming for the IGCSE exams Summer 2022.

In the first year of the 2 year course all the basics of the syllabus are covered to make sure the students have a really good grounding of all the core subjects.  The first year comprises of one lesson a week, there are weekly handouts, weekly homework, and answer sheets.

In the second year the course gets more intense, as we focus in on the Higher aspects of the course.  We up the classes to 2 separate hour-long lessons a week, again full handouts, homework with answer sheets are provided though and it is expected that the homework will take a longer time to complete.

Online One-year IGCSE Higher Level Maths Course

This course is designed for students who have covered the basics of the IGCSE syllabus or who have covered all the Foundation topics and who are ready to focus on the harder topics of the Higher syllabus. It is an intensive course, we have two sessions a week, each for an hour long, I find meeting twice a week really brings the class together.  It allows us to explore a topic and then build on the basis of it in the second class.

Full weekly handouts, homework and answer sheets are provided.  In the run up to the actual exams I provide a past paper timetable and encourage the students to work through the past papers so that I can look at problem questions from the relevant weekly papers in class.
