Maths lessons at school often divide students. For some, grasping the intricacies of algebra, fractions or calculus comes naturally. For others, it is a living nightmare. But like it or not, maths has a wide-spanning reach across a number of different disciplines including science, engineering and technology but to name a few. Below are some jobs that rely heavily on a mathematical foundation:

- Accountant
- Astronomer
- Doctor
- Engineer
- Quantity surveyor
- Researcher
- Video game designer

Even on a basic level, we use maths in most aspects of everyday life. From telling the time to making sure you get the right change for buying a pint of milk, maths and numbers are important. They are essential to keep our finances in order as well as to help us manage quantities and ingredients when cooking and baking. Being literate in maths can help you spot a good deal, as well as allowing you to work out which products give the best value for money.

But aside from calculating dimensions, volumes and quantities, and counting your change, maths is an important class at school. The school curriculum is designed to best prepare students to be able to tackle the everyday uses of maths, whilst equipping the students who want to study it further with the required foundations. What’s more, your GCSE grade in maths is one of the most important that you will obtain. A good grade will not only show that your skills extend beyond addition and subtraction, but that you can grasp more complex topics such as trigonometry and quadratic equations.

As such, it will be one of the first grades that a prospective employer will look at or even require for any job. This is because it is a compulsory subject across the country and it, therefore, offers employers the opportunity to use it as a standardised measure to see how candidates stack up against each other, not just in terms of their multiplication or arithmetic ability, but as a way to show their overall ability to grasp concepts when those concepts are the same across GCSE or A-Level exams.

So given the importance that maths has in our everyday lives and the importance of getting a good grade at school to make ourselves more employable, it should not be taken lightly. This means that seeking extra help to improve your chances of success is a sensible choice. After all, mathematical ability doesn’t come easily to everyone. Not everyone can quickly grasp how to calculate a digit’s place value or understand what polynomial even means.

Naturally, you can find a lot of extra help on the internet. Videos, printable worksheets and interactive lessons are all useful tools, but they don’t match what a maths tutor can offer you. A tutor is a perfect way to get the exact support that you need. Whether it’s homework help or additional explanation of some of the trickier topics such as linear equations or precalculus, your tutor will tailor the classes to your needs and design them to suit your learning style, meaning that if you learn best by doing worksheets to allow you to practise then they will build your private lessons around this approach.

What’s more, the extra attention will mean that you are not left behind struggling sat at the back of a classroom if you don’t understand something as clearly as others perhaps do. In such a situation, a tutor will be able to change their method of explanation to give you the extra support that you need. Such an approach is perfect if you struggle with a particular part of your class’ syllabus or if there is a specific issue that you are constantly having.

One of the great things about improving your maths skills with a tutor is that you can learn exactly what you want. There is no point wasting time on multiplying in order to perfect your times tables if you are already a master at this. But at the same time, there is plenty of reason to spend time on Pythagorean theorem if you are struggling to calculate the hypotenuse of a right-angled triangle.

In this regard, learning maths with a tutor means that you can learn exactly what you want to learn, and not waste time with stuff that you are already a pro at. Typically, some of the common areas that students need help with are:

- Algebra (including pre-algebra)
- Graphing
- Long division
- Multiplication and division
- Trigonometry

Naturally, the topic and the extent of the help that you will need will depend on your age and what you are studying at school (or university). One of the great things about learning with a tutor is that you don’t need to commit to any mathematics courses or programmes – you can get the exact help you need in the exact amount of lessons that you need. No more, no less.

With a simple Google search, you will be able to find a whole host of maths tutors. But the problem you will have is selecting the perfect one for you given the number of options out there. It can seem a bit daunting when you first search for maths classes due to the number of results and the mixed way that they are presented.

This is where Superprof comes in. With Superprof, you can search for maths tutors in your local area. From Southampton to Sheffield, London to Lincoln, Superprof can find you your perfect tutor close to you with just a few clicks. Each tutor’s profile comes complete with how much they charge for their classes, as well as a brief history about their mathematical credentials and areas that they specialise in.

With all of this information, you will be perfectly placed to pick the tutor that suits your learning style and what you want to achieve from your classes. And the cherry on the cake; the majority of tutors offer their first class for free so that you can have a first-hand experience of how they teach and what you stand to learn before you commit to taking classes with them!
