Find Extra Maths Lessons in Cape Town

Regardless of your academic ability, there comes a time in almost every student’s life where extra maths lessons are needed, even if that is just for a season. If that season has come, and you find yourself in South Africa’s Mother City doing online searches that read, maths tutor Cape Town, then you are in a very fortunate position.

Not only is Cape Town one of the most vibrant and scenic cities in the world, even boasting one of the New Seven Wonders of the World, Table Mountain, but it also boasts a plethora of sound academic institutions.

From its many outstanding schools to tertiary institutions, Cape Town has a reputation for academic talent which means that your search for maths tutor Cape Town is sure to yield a long list of excellent results.

Reasons to Search for a Maths Tutor Cape Town

Mathematics is an extremely complex subject requiring much energy, focus and discipline.

Unfortunately, stumbling blocks to progress can include large classroom settings where the teacher is forced to move through a syllabus quickly before every student has had the opportunity to fully grasp how to solve the maths problem that is currently on the table.

Another difficulty could be the student and teacher dynamics which are even more important in a complex subject like maths. Sadly, if the student is not comfortable with the teacher it can create additional mental blocks to an already difficult subject. For these reasons and others, extra maths lessons, where students can learn at their own pace, with a tutor of their choice, can truly revolutionise academic progress.

Signing up for extra maths lessons with a private tutor guarantees the student one-on-one attention, enabling them to focus on the problem areas that are unique to them. Once this is achieved, not only will academic performance be improved, but the student’s self-esteem, confidence and enjoyment of maths is also bound to rise.

Common Difficulties for Young Maths Students

Ensuring certain fundamental concepts in early childhood development are key to coping with advanced mathematics in later years. Here are a few of the common difficulties that can trip up maths students later in life if they are not established with confidence at a young age.  

  • Number Facts – it’s important for a child to master the ability to memorise basic arithmetic, when this results in a weakness it can hamper their progress to grasp more challenging concepts.
  • Computing – this is a challenge that can affect even great mathematical minds at a young age. If the child fails to read the sign, or write the numerals correctly, it can become problematic and result in the need for remedial, or extra maths lessons.
  • Transfer of Knowledge – another foundational difficulty occurs when a child cannot transfer the abstract concepts of maths to the physical world. This is when early child development educators will use props, tools and shapes that are tangible.
  • Lack of Maths Vocabulary – this can result in the student struggling to remember abstract terms, values or definitions.
  • Attention Difficulties – as maths requires more focus than other subjects, some students can become easily distracted or fatigued during lessons.
  • Sequential Maths Difficulties – these problems can give rise to students who are unable to order steps correctly in order to solve a problem, or if they have difficulty coping with multi-step procedures.
