Have you just received your results and are considering to study A-Level Maths. Most colleges will have a minimum requirement for GCSE Grade before you study Maths, usually a Grade 6. Our A-Level Maths Group Tuition classes help students to gain an advantage over their peers at school/college.
The first part of the course at school/college is the crucial transition period from GCSE to A-Level and it is vital to stay on top of Maths at this stage as this will make the rest of the course easier.
To ensure that you dont miss out, we are offering TWO free trial lessons instead of the one lesson we usually offer. Thats 3 hours of teaching for FREE (for the first 8 students) so you can decide whether or not this class is for you. We recommend you have at least a Grade 7 at GCSE and our classes are fast paced as we aim for a Grade A as a minimum at A-Level.
In the last 3 years, at least 60% of our students have achieved a Grade A or higher.
In the last 14 years we have taught A-Level Maths to over 200 students.

Anish is the founder of Direct Tuition and started teaching in 2004. Specialising in A-Level Maths, Anish is a fully qualified Examiner for the exam boards and continues that work alongside his teaching. Anish has taught over 800 A-Level students and is motivated to reach his life goal of having a positive impact of the lives of 100,000 students. As well as teaching classes, Anish has set up a dedicated YouTube page filled with free video tutorials to guide students through past papers and difficult topics.
"I think that Anish is a great tutor who is really passionate about Maths, and this is clear when you’ve sat in his lessons. He makes the lessons really enjoyable and relaxed, but you do get a lot of work done in the lesson time. He also sets a good amount of homework and also sets extra, more challenging work when it comes around to revision. e.g.: Solomon papers."
Aleesha Patel – A-Level – Maths – Grade A
"Anish is a great mathematician so his teaching methods were very good. He showed a number of ways to tackle questions & this allowed individuals to identify their ideal methods."
Nazeefah - A-Level – Maths – Grade B
"I came to you with a predicted Grade D in Maths, and with your help I ended up getting an A. Thank you for all your help."
Kaylum Patel – A-Level Maths – Grade A
"Very enthusiastic and positive teaching, which included a range of different teaching techniques helping to make the topic more interesting and understandable, like paper layouts and lectures on particular topics. The idea of homework at the end of every lesson was very helpful, as it hammered the motion of the topic I was doing. Both making me confident and prepared for my exams. I can proudly say that if I did not join the tuition, I would not have reached my full potential, which was A*."

Ideally each session will have four or five students per class. The maximum number of student would be 8 but to allow each student a greater chance to learn and ask questions to the teacher, as well as keep up with the pace easily, we try to separate the classes into more reasonable numbers so the pupils have the best possible environment in which to learn.
As well as going through the content in the classes thoroughly, we give the students homework every week so the students can confirm what they have learnt in the previous lesson. Homework is to be handed in the following week and the marked work will be handed back the following week. The homework simply allows the student to establish that they are happy and understand the content and allows us to monitor where some students may be struggling.
The equipment required will be a pen, workbook, pencil and a calculator should the module require one. Turning up with the right equipment is important so that the student is ready to learn and keep up with the pace of the session as well as feeling confident they can use any equipment when necessary. Some schools and colleges will force students to purchase a Graphical Calculator, we teach everything from scratch so students fully understand where their numbers have come from, so a normal scientific calculator is all that we recommend. Our recommended calculator is the Casio FX991EX
An intensive revision course consists of a whole days’ worth of work, in which the whole syllabus will be covered, the work will be at a fast pace but will still allow the students the best possible chance to learn and ask any questions they need, so that they feel confident. The courses take place a few days before the exams and provide the last chance for students to ensure everything has been covered.
The Year 1 A-Level course is taught over a period of 30 lessons (90 minutes in duration) and is tailored for the AQA syllabus as a majority of schools/colleges in Leicester study the AQA course. Students studying Edexcel, OCR or MEI will still find the course beneficial as 90% of the syllabus is the same.
During the first part of this course (18 lessons), students will be taught new concepts before they learn them in college. This way when they learn the content at college it will be their second time going through the content and will consolidate learning ensuring they master the topic.
The final part of the course (12 lessons) is the exam preparation segment where students are taught exam techniques and how to approach exam questions. This is the most important part of the course and this is where many students should be concentrating their efforts. By completing the course in February allows us to ensure students are able to tackle the most difficult of problems by constantly doing exam questions.
Below is an outline of the A-Level Year 1 Course
In January we also run a 4 week Statistics Course and a 4 week Mechanics Course, ensuring the whole Syllabus is covered for those students which are interested.
