Pure Math AS / A levels Tutors in Dubai

Gore's Tutoring offers expert Pure Math AS/A level lessons at its center in JLT. The Math classes are offered in small groups as well as private (one to one) format. The Math tutors at Gore's Dubai have more than 16 years experience in teaching the Math AS A levels. 

At Gore's Dubai, we offer A level Pure Math tuitions for Edexcel / CIE / Oxford AQA international / AQA / OCR boards.

The Pure Math + Mechanics + Statistics combination is a bit challenging for students who have completed the GCSE / IGCSE Maths. The students who have achieved a higher B or a 7 in igcse or gcse generally take up AS level Pure Math courses of edexcel or CIE.

Our tutoring program for Pure Math edexcel AS / A level revolves around 3 main phases. The first phase involves fast track completion of the Math Specifications as per the text book. This phase generally takes about 6 months (students are required to attend 4 hours per week  / 2 sessions each of 2 hours). The second phase starts in parallel with the first wherein we offer some private lessons  especially for Statistics and few Mechanics topics. The second phase focuses on Applied Math (Statistics and Mechanics). The Students may do 1 hour out of the 4 hours per week for the applied math (Statistics and mechanics). 

The second phase that concentrates on Applied Math is done at a slower pace than the Pure Math. While the pure math topics are being completed at a fast pace, the applied math topics are done at a steady speed. As and when the Pure Math is completed (approximately by the end of the 6th month), about 50% of the applied math also is completed. The tutors then focus on Applied Math for 1 month intensive lessons (4 to 6 hours per week on applied math) and complete the remaining topics.

The third phase involves practicing exam style questions, doing full scale exam practice and getting the answering techniques fine tuned with our expert teachers.

Gore's Tutoring has tutored hundreds of students from reputed A level schools in Dubai such as Dubai College, Jumeirah College, DESC, Raffles international, Winchestor, DBS, Chouiefat, English College .....

IB Math exam Paper Discussion lessons at Gore's Tutoring Dubai



IB Exam Paper Discussion Lesson involves assigning past papers as homework. The students are required to attempt three to four IB exam papers at home before they attend the paper discussion lesson. These lessons are generally scheduled for IB DP 2 students / IB Final year students. The purpose of these lessons is to assess the level of preparedness in solving exam questions. 

The students have to solve at least three exam papers and upload their work on the Homework Portal. Our team of IB tutors then go through the student's work and flag those questions / concepts that remain unanswered. These are discussed at a fast pace in the classroom with detailed explanations. 

At Gore's, the IB students have to solve past papers from 1999 on wards until 2019. That comes to approximately 120 exam papers! The tutoring sessions at Gore's covers many of the questions while they learn concepts. Therefore, the students would ideally find about 50 papers as unique. Hence, the task of solving these papers becomes easier. 

By solving exam papers regularly, IB students learn the art of answering a full scale exam. They can fine tune their answering strategies with help of our tutors. Every student has a different / unique way to approach the IB exam paper. 

By optimizing the time and mastering the exam paper answering technique, the probability of getting a 6-7 is enhanced. Regular exam paper discussions lead towards attaining perfection in the stronger areas and strengthening the weaker concepts. In addition to the exam questions, we assign additional IB style questions developed by Mr. Vikram especially to students who wish to strengthen their weaker concepts.

To register for IB Math lessons at Gore's Tutoring, Call 052 768 95 65 / 050 90 21 727 / 050 214 9099 or visit our website www.gorestutoring.com

MYP Math tutoring in Dubai: Mr. Vikram's tutorial classes


MYP MATHEMATICS TUTORING

MYP Mathematics curriculum is gaining acceptance across Dubai schools rapidly. The MYP Math course takes students through a comprehensive and in-depth Math assessment based on four learning criteria namely:
  1. Knowing and Understanding :              Criteria A
  2. Investigating Patterns             :              Criteria B
  3. Communication                       :              Criteria C
  4. Applying Math in Real World :             Criteria D
MYP Math tutoring at Gore’s Dubai begins with detailed “Tutoring Plan” either prepared by Mr. Vikram or Ms. Yogita based on individual student assessment. The lessons are structured in a way so as to cover Criteria A initially and move on to Criteria D. The students learn Criteria B in parallel as they complete the course. Criterion C gets covered as the students learn new topics and get familiar with the mathematical notations and language of mathematics. A gradual development of effective mathematical communication is achieved.

Mr. Vikram has designed the MYP Math program at Gore’s Dubai. The students get to work on our MYP criteria-specific worksheets developed in house. MYP Math is offered at two levels in Dubai: Standard and Extended. The students take core math courses together and then branch out for the extended topics at our tutoring center.
The key objective in MYP tutoring at Gore’s Dubai is to prepare students with in depth Math knowledge and relevant theory that is listed in the MYP specification. The topics mentioned below are covered:
·   Number & Algebra
·   Set Theory / Logic
·   Linear & Quadratic relationships
·   Indices
·   Mensuration 2
·   Statistics & Probability
·   Technology
·   Line / angle properties
·   Linear programming
·   Trigonometry
·   Similarity
·   Transformational geometry
·   Mensuration 1
·   Constructions and loci
.    Graphs of non-linear functions
Gore’s MYP Math tutoring also focuses on building skills in pattern recognition and ability to analyze, describe and build rules for patterns. Investigating patterns is one of the most important bedrocks of algebraic thinking.  Traditionally, students are asked to follow a set pattern based on pre-developed algorithms. They merely follow what has been already developed. However, at Gore’s MYP classes, students learn how to create new algorithms and this enhances their critical thinking abilities.
A variety of techniques are taught including sequences, short tricks to get nth term formulae, compound patterns based on past exam papers etc
The MYP Math lessons at Gore’s incorporate teaching technology (use of graphic calculators and software) as well as familiarize students with mathematical notations, symbols as well as teach them appropriate use of tables, charts, graphs, 3D models. As a part of Criterion D, we have developed large number of questions on applying mathematical knowledge in real life situations. Worksheets that focus specifically on Criterion D have been developed. Students practice questions from these worksheets regularly. Homework / assignments are also given to students through our dedicated homework portal.

Gcse physics AQA tutors in dubai- Gcse physics tutoring classes in Dubai


AQA GCSE PHYSICS TUTORING

Gore’s Physics tutoring for AQA GCSE Triple science involves covering the following topics: Energy, Electricity, Particle model of matter, Atomic structure, Forces, Waves, Magnetism and electromagnetism, Space physics.

The AQA exam has two papers:

Paper 1 topics are: Energy, Electricity, Particle model of matter, Atomic structure

Paper 2 topics are:  Forces, Waves, Magnetism & electromagnetism, Space physics.

The types of questions asked in AQA GCSE Physics are multiple choice, structured, closed short answer and open response. The Scheme of exam is as follows: Written exam for each paper; 1 hour 45 minutes;  Foundation and Higher Tier;  100 marks per paper; each paper is weighed at 50% of GCSE Physics.

The tutoring for AQA physics is designed as per the board’s specifications. We focus on three important components:  Concepts – Exam Keywords – Exam papers Questions

Our tutors teach the core concepts that include relevant formulae in considerable detail. The students are required to take notes of the contents. Once the concepts are done, the tutors then proceed towards teaching the relevant Exam Keywords on that concept. 

At Gore’s, we emphasize on exam oriented preparation. The Keywords teaching technique is integral part of our classes. Every exam board has marks the answers based on relevant keywords and hence the tutoring is specifically focused on training students how to write and include keywords in a structured manner.

Once the concept and Keywords are drilled, the tutors then move to the Exam paper questions. The exam paper questions (and similar questions), re-enforce already learned topics and make students “Exam Ready”

At Gore’s, we offer small group lessons. Every group has students who are of similar abilities and doing the similar topics. The classes have a Physics teacher in the classroom in Dubai along with an Online (Live in person) tutor working side by side from our GCSE Academy in India.

This ensures that every student gets proper attention even though the classes are in small groups. The student is able to learn concepts that involve graphical utilities as well as simulations with the help of our online teacher who is interacting with the student on a one to one basis.

After each lesson, the student is assigned homework on our dedicated homework portal. The parents have access to this portal and thus can keep a check on the learning / tutoring plan. Our regular students get access to hundreds of books, exam papers, assignments and tests developed by our team of tutors led by Mr. Vikram.

Students at Gore’s also have to appear for mock exams once topics are covered and thoroughly revised.

IB Math HL Analysis & Approaches Tutoring classes in Dubai


                          IB MATHEMATICS HIGHER LEVEL
                              
                              ANALYSIS & APPROACHES

Gore's IB Math tutoring programs are well known in Dubai! Mr. Vikram has been an IB Math and Physics tutor for past 16 years. He has tutored more students from almost all the reputed IB schools in Dubai as well as from abroad (Singapore / EU / India).

IB Math curriculum has undergone a complete transformation recently. The new specification (first exams from 2021) will have broadly two mathematics course offerings: (1) Analysis & Approaches and (2) Applications & Interpretations.

The IB board has discontinued with Mathematical Studies course. Hence, (1) and (2) now will have two levels each namely Higher and Standard level. 

In Dubai, the IB Math Analysis & Approaches (AA) HL is gaining popularity due to its content and scope. The chances of acceptance into reputed universities are higher with this course (IB Math AA HL). Hence, a comprehensive study is required to crack this exam and score maximum grades not only in the finals but also in the school tests and mocks. The students need to score consistently in the school tests/mocks so as to maximize their predicted scores. The predicted scores are important for University admissions. 

At Gore's, the tutoring for IB Math AA HL is designed as per the latest IB specifications guidelines. Broadly speaking, the course has five major topics: Number & Algebra, Functions, Geometry& Trigonometry, Probability & Statistics and Calculus.

The Exam format of IB Math AA HL: 3 exam papers comprising of Paper 1 (Non Calculator), and Paper 2 & 3 (Calculator) + Math Exploration. The exam papers account for 80% of the final grade. Math exploration accounts for 20 % of the final grade. 

We will be covering all the topics that are specified in IB specifications both for exam papers as well as for the IB Math exploration. Mr. Vikram and his team of tutors have prepared a large repository of exam style questions for each topic outlined in the IB syllabus. 

The IB Math AA HL syllabus will be covered with concept - basic questions - exam style questions - real world applications-problem solving format. Each concept needs detailed explanation. Following the explanation, the tutors will provide drill sheet with basic questions.

Once the basic questions have been answered, Mr. Vikram's IB Math AA HL exam worksheets will be provided. These worksheets have exam style questions that have been modeled along the new pattern. After the exam style questions are done 75 % of the concept is covered. The other 25% is Real world applications / Problem solving questions using the concepts that have been covered earlier. The target is to cover content specific to Paper 1, Paper 2 and Paper 3 comprehensively.

The classes are in small groups led by Mr. Vikram and his team of tutors based in Dubai.  Mr. Vikram has developed the expertise of teaching in small groups over the last 16 years. The student gets the feel of one to one tutoring even though he/she is in a group.

This is done by the task splitting technique. Ideally, an experienced teacher takes 10 minutes to explain one concept. Once the concept is explained / taught, a worksheet that contains large number of questions on that concept are given to the student. 

We have a large repository of questions developed over 16 years! As the student does the practice, another trained teacher keeps watch on the working and provides assistance or explanation as the student solves. Hence, at any given point of time there is always a teacher available for every student in the group!

The main teacher would then be teaching another student the concept, while rest of the group does the worksheet questions. There are instances when a student needs explanation more than two times. This is provided as we work in rotation.

Gore's has a team of trained IB tutors based in India at its IB tutoring center where trained tutors are available Online on our dedicated interactive portal to provide One to One explanation while a group class is going on at our Dubai center!

GCSE Maths 9-1 tutoring lessons- support- classes in Dubai


      GCSE / IGCSE MATHEMATICS TUTORING SCHEMES
                                   Small Group Lessons (REGULAR)

Gore’s small group tutoring is one of the most effective tutoring schemes for GCSE – IGCSE Math (9-1) pattern for the Edexcel / Aqa / CIE boards. A typical small group class has 3-5 students who are grouped as per their abilities.
Before a batch is finalized, Mr. Vikram or Ms. Yogita will assess the student. Based on the assessment, the academic level (deficient areas, strengths etc) is ascertained. The test generally takes anywhere between 20 minutes to 1 hour. There is no score or grade provided. The test is for internal evaluation purposes only.
We would also require parents to provide us with school reports, portion papers (topics that are covered in the school), any past exam/ answer papers (if any), additional remarks made by school teacher or his math tutor.

About the “Gore’s Tutoring Method”
The GCSE – IGCSE Math lessons are taught by Mr. Vikram and Ms. Yogita.
Mr. Vikram has been tutoring Math and Physics for past 16 years in Dubai. His tutoring is mainly focused towards the UK and IB curriculum. Ms. Yogita has been teaching Math, Physics and computer Science for more than 10 years.  
At Gore’s, the lesson plans, concept teaching, practice questions, assignments and tests are all prepared by Mr. Vikram and Ms. Yogita. The teaching is strictly monitored by them. The center has trained assistants who support them throughout the lessons.
We DO NOT believe that Teaching / Tutoring can be FRANCHISED! It is not food business! Gore’s is owned, operated and managed by professional teachers based in Dubai. You can personally meet the real owners who are tutors and not managers who merely read out a “franchised” script!

No outsourcing – No overpricing- No franchisee fee issues – KHDA Licensed with “Tutoring Services Permit” – Franchised ones DO NOT have “Tutoring Services” Permit!

Gore’s Tutoring emphasizes on EXAM ORIENTED TEACHING. We focus our energies towards teaching exam paper style questions / concepts. Past exam paper questions and similar type of questions are practiced in every lesson.

Parents feel that group lessons are NOT EFFECTIVE: True.. but not exactly!

Mr. Vikram has developed the expertise of teaching in small groups over the last 16 years. The student gets the feel of one to one tutoring even though he/she is in a group.
This is done by the task splitting technique. Ideally, an experienced teacher takes 10 minutes to explain one concept.

There are instances when a student needs explanation more than two times. This is provided as we work in rotation.
We also have a GCSE Academy in India where trained tutors are available Online on our dedicated interactive portal to provide One to One explanation while a group class is going on at our Dubai center!

Private / Home Tutors charge 4 to 5 times per hour for a concept!
A home tutor would always charge more as he /she has to account for transport charges, traffic delays, parking etc . On an average, a private / home tutor stretches the explanation time for a single concept to 45 minutes so that an hour is covered! 
                   
                   PRIVATE / HOME TUTORS ARE NOT LICENSED

HOMEWORK / ASSIGNMENTS (for Regular Students)
Tutoring is not complete without Homework! We have a dedicated homework portal where the customized homework is uploaded as required after the class is done. The parents will have access to this portal and can therefore monitor the homework regularly.
NOTE: Homework is assigned after the lesson. Hence, the topic that student needs to practice is allotted by the teacher unlike other Math websites that assign standard worksheets!
MOCK EXAMINATIONS
Students are given Exam papers to solve after they complete a unit. These papers are marked. Based on the performance, the teachers take remedial action.
ADDITIONAL REVISION RESOURCES
Our regular students get access to exam papers, MAQUE Revision Guide (Mr. Vikram’s compilation of exam style questions), access to our library of mathematics books and much more!
