Whether you are a trainee teacher wanting to know more about tutoring and mentoring, or a retired teacher wanting to support students in mathematics then this course is for you.A tutor's role has often been to support students preparing for examinations but in recent times this role has focused more on identifying the learning gaps especially to support our most disadvantaged and vulnerable groups.If you are looking to transfer your skillset into tutoring of mathematics, whatever your background, then this course is essential to equip you with key teaching strategies and resources you require to ensure you can identify gaps and support individual students whatever their background, ability and level.This remotely-delivered course highlights eight teaching and learning strategies, with associated resources, from the ‘Improving teaching in Mathematics’ produced by Nottingham University which can be employed by mathematics tutors in this role.


• look at strategies to build upon prior knowledge

• expose and discuss common misconceptions

• develop techniques for effective questioning

• place an emphasis on methods and approach rather than answers

• consider the benefits of cooperative and small group work

• use rich collaborative tasks to develop understanding

• explore connections between topic areas

• use technology to support learning in appropriate ways
