I created some intensive maths courses because so many of my students have the same problems. Often I felt that one hour was not long enough to really study a topic. Therefore I created intensive maths courses consisting of 4 hour lessons. During the lessons we look at every question that has been asked on that topic previously. There are many versions of this type of question in the exam. Questions range from simple to very hard. Afterwards the student is able to answer any maths problem asked in the test on this topic. Each week we cover a new chapter in depth. We have classes once a week on a Saturday morning. Often it is very close to the exam and the student is not ready. Therefore intensive math courses are a great help. They need to get ready quickly!
It is €100 for a 4 hour session. However there are discounts available for siblings or friends who come together.
We have small groups usually between two and four. It is important that the group of students are roughly same level. The group needs to have similar issues. Often a group of friends come together.
It depends, a whole course or module is around 8 weeks. We have intensive maths courses once a week. This is usually on a Saturday morning. Sometimes students ask me for a one day course. This is because they only have a problem with one specific topic.
We collect the students from home in the morning. Then they have a 4 hour intensive lesson. If a student’s parents drive them then I will offer a discount in the price. Drinks and food are provided such as pizza, chips and snacks and the student is taken home at the end of the day.
I have a large bright classroom finished with modern classroom furniture. It is equipped with a projector, wiFi, whiteboard, blackboard and a kitchenette with adjoining bathroom and the latest technology.
Every student takes home an interactive ebook, which covers around 20 exam questions on the topic that we studied. You can see an example in our ebook section. After the course they can review all the material that we covered during the course using the ebook.
I can provide you with the contact details of parents of my students. You can also contact the maths department at Laude San Pedro International College. The headteacher and head of maths will be happy to talk to you.
