The new academic year is upon us and as we go back to school, what can we expect this year?
For a great many pupils, the next several terms will involve catching up from the disruption caused by Covid-19. There’s no doubt that 2021-22 will be a challenging year, and that’s without the return of restrictions, mass-quarantines and the like caused by resurgence of Coronavirus.
The best advice I can give in uncertain times is to focus on the things one can control. In practice, this means creating and maintaining a focus on learning and performing at your highest level.
For those taking exams at the end of this school year, you must assume that it will return to normal exams. This prepares you for the real thing, while leaving us well-positioned should assessments become a reality once more.
I do not underestimate just how demanding it can be to be fully-focused on school work while schools are regarded as hubs of contagion and while the various authorities look at supplying CO2 monitors, ozone cleaning machines and the like. While this may be helpful at a macro level, it is yet another distraction and a reminder that normality is yet to be resumed.
It is with the learning challenges in mind that I’ve decided to open a wide selection of online maths courses which will run throughout the entire academic year during term time.
The running order looks like this:
- Mondays 6pm 11+ Maths
- Mondays 7pm GCSE Maths
- Tuesdays 6pm Y13 Maths
- Wednesdays 6pm Y12 Maths
- Thursdays 5pm KS3 Maths/GCSE Foundation
Numbers will be kept small and I will be running the courses even with just one child.
Something to note is that these courses are deliberately highly affordable to be as inclusive as possible. I do not want money to be a barrier to accessing high quality private tuition.
