Eleven-plusses. GCSEs. A Levels. Sometimes, it feels like you never stop being examined. But for students in Skipton, the stress can be slashed. 

In 2017, around 70% of GCSE students in England, passed their Maths exams with a 4 or above (equivalent to a C in the old system), but what if you're in the other 30%?

Achieving a good grade requires working hard and revising plenty, but it's easy to procrastinate away revision.Sometimes, we all need a bit of help getting back on track...

And in English Language AQA reported that 65.7% of students achieved a 4 and above. That's 657 out of every 1,000 students, or expressed 0.657 expressed as a decimal. To be the kind of student who finds conversions easy, and to put yourself in that 65.7%, you might need the help of a tutor...

Whether you need 1 to 1 support, or just a group workshop to boost your confidence in a certain area, it could make or break your results deciding to get a little extra help.

1st Class Tutors in Skipton help children aged 7 to 16 with all sorts of Maths and English exams and even offers a free assessment to see if it could be suitable for you, your son or daughter. 

Beth Parsons spoke with Lynne, from 1st Class Tutors, about how the tutoring process works - and learned a thing or two about fractions and decimals along the way!
