    Hi there,

    If you're doing Maths GCSE, I personally think you shouldn't get a tutor. I did my GCSE's last year, and without a maths tutor I think I did quite good. I did have an amazing teacher though; who was thoughtful, brilliant at teaching, and helped us in any way possible. This made me enjoy maths very much.

    If you think you're teacher isn't that good, then I would maybe consider it, but you need to know that tutors are expensive!

    However, if you are passionate about getting the grade you wish to achieve, you can do it without a tutor. First revise the topic, then spend a lot of time going over practise questions on that topic. Repeat this for the various topics, then move on to exam practise questions. I would say this is a very good technique.

    If you are really stuck on something, you should ask your teacher to help: afterall, that is what they're there for.

    You can do it without a tutor ! But it is your choice.

    I hope that helps

    The best way to get better at maths is by doing as many questions as you can. Get the past papers, make mistakes, learn from them, revise the topics that you keep losing marks on. And the questions that you can't do by yourself even after you've tried 5 times and searched all over the web, ask your teacher.
