**Maths Courses for Secondary School ages: **

-Year 7 – 8

-Year 9 – 10

-Year 11 – GCSE

We have the pleasure in introducing three courses that cover all the requirements of secondary school Mathematics. From year 7 until year 11 GCSE’s, we will cover everything your child needs to know in order to succeed at Mathematics.

**Why Brain Train?**

We use experienced tutors with extensive knowledge and experience of GCSE Mathematics. At Brain Train your child’s course will always be run by Colin, who in partnership with Louise, is committed to getting the best possible result for your child in the all important GCSE’s.

**Weekly Homework Programme**

No hidden costs – teaching, marking and all required materials are included in the original price. Simple pricing structure, easy to understand, with a 6-week fee, payments are spread over the course duration to make it manageable for all families. Students can join the groups at any time – providing there are spaces. Brain Train resource centre is also available to all pupils with a 10% discount.

Group tuition for Maths and GSCE applicants has proved itself to be beneficial for all students. The group is a safe, nurturing environment, ideal for pupils to gauge the level of competition, giving them an understanding of the standards expected, thus encouraging them to improve their skills. Students feel they are part of a team, and not isolated which happens with one to one tuition.

Our courses provide everything that you and your child will need when preparing for their GSCE Maths exam.
