The master your numeracy skills sessions will assist pupils to...

  • Memorise key facts.
  • Practise specific skills.
  • Develop problem solving strategies.
  • Develop confidence to calculate mentally.
  • Achieve mastery in their selected topic.

Beyond the Classroom

Pupils can register for any topic, regardless of their age or school year, for any length of time - until the pupil gain mastery.

The pupil must meet the entry requirement criteria for their chosen topic.

Take the entry requirement test. 

Master your numeracy skill lessons are self-paced with the flexibility to choose one or multiple topics. This means the pupil has the potential to build a solid foundation and progress further in maths, without constraints of completing the topic within a given timeframe of a school term.

With our affordable monthly payment options, the pupil is able to register for one, two or three sessions per week.
All our sessions are guided and supervised by our trained dedicated tutor.

Pre-requisite - Entry requirement tests for master your numeracy skills topics.

Our pre-requisite tests assess the foundation skill necessary for successful learning of the topics undertaken by the pupil.

Pre-requisite test for - Place value and Arithmetic Operations 

This test checks the pupil's ability to:

  • count numbers at least up to 1000.
  • add and subtract numbers up to 20.

There are 15 questions in total.
To register for the place value and arithmetic operations courses - the pupil should score at least twelve correct answers.
