My son was in 4th year and struggling with his Maths. He found the speed he was being taught at was too fast and he was missing important info during most lessons. So we looked for a solution and came up with 1 to 1 lessons with the Maths Tutor. He really enjoyed the lessons and found Maths becoming easier every week. He got his results today......an A for his Nat 5. He says he cant wait for his Highers now and obviously we'll be using The Maths Tutor for another year to support him. Thats why i have given 5 stars
