Year 7

Tute’s team of experienced teachers have planned our lessons to work alongside what students are studying in school; to enable catch-up, to consolidate something that was difficult to master in class or to help revise for exams. To make is easy to choose lessons for different subjects, year groups and levels, we have organised lessons into topics that are fully aligned with the National Curriculum ensuring a comprehensive coverage of the curriculum that makes sense!

All you need to do is select the topic and then the level you feel is appropriate and you will find a list of suitable lessons that you can book for just £10 ex VAT

Fractions and ratio (Foundation)

This course is aimed to boost the student’s confidence with fractions and ratio.

Properties of shape including angles and area (Foundation)

In this topic we will start by looking at the properties of shape.

These are useful skills to have especially when trying to find the missing angle and using angle facts, e.g. how many degrees in a straight line? We advance to angles rules within certain 2D shapes and look at symmetry within these shapes. The focus of the final lesson will be on the area of shapes by counting squares before learning about the area of a rectangle.

Percentages, money and time (Foundation)

In the second lesson we move on to finding simple percentages before working out more complicated percentages without a calculator.

We then investigate congruence and similarity in triangles. We begin to understand trigonometry by looking at congruence and the ratio of side and how this affects the size of angles, then we label and select Sin Cos & Tan. We then use trig ratios to find missing sides and angles and finish off by looking at the case when the functions need to be rearranged and also exam style problems.
