    I’m really awful at maths and I have a tutor and I do revise. However, my teacher this year isn’t the best. She gave my class a checklist for an assessment, later on we find out that she hadn’t even wrote the checklist and that she took another teachers. So all the things I studied for was wrong. It’s also her teaching that I don’t get. My tutor says I’m good and I grasp things quickly but with my maths teacher I do not understand anything. On the assessment I got 27%, I don’t know what to do about my teacher, perhaps I’m studying wrong? Can some people share their revision techniques?

    the beauty of mathematics is the fact that it is a universal language with a definitive answer. Unlike subjects like English and history, where you need an opinion backed by convincing evidence, there are rules and laws to obey and follow to get to your answer in maths. What I strongly advise is for you is to check what is your preferred learning style. From there you tutor can adapt their teaching style to get the maximum understanding out of you. A resource I highly recommend in the meantime is maths genie- watch the informative videos, take intricate notes and then practice questions. The main way you are gonna get to your desired level in maths is to study concepts and apply your knowledge in past paper questions. This was my revision technique and it works for virtually everyone because this is what maths is about: knowledge, understanding and being able to communicate that on a sheet of paper. Remember: hard work eventually pays off!

    A good website to help you understand content is corbette maths. It has a load of videos explaining different topics and it also has sheets that they call '5-a-day'. These are different sheets to do daily with questions on from a variety of topics that you can try and check the answers for.
    Hope this helps

    You have to keep on practicing.

    As @enda-jane suggested, the Corbett Maths 5-a-day worksheets are a good place to start. That's what I used when I was taking GCSE Maths three years ago.
