FAQ Page

Do you have your own specific program or is it tailor made?

We appreciate that each tutee we come across has different needs and areas that need to be addressed. This is why we provide a tailor made learning package that includes homework and also adheres to a specific syllabus or exam board depending on the learning goals of the tutee.

What if I need to cancel a lesson?

We offer free cancellation on most packages (Minimum 48 hours notice), however same day cancellations are usually charged for in full; Although if a parent contacts us on the day of the lesson due to a genuine emergency, we would normally waive the lesson charge without fuss.

How do I pay for lessons?

For PAYG Payment, the first lesson is normally paid at the time of booking and in cash at the beginning of each subsequent lesson. All our other packages require payment to be made the time of booking.

We accept Paypal or BACS Payment.

How much is tuition?

You can view our prices on our pricing page. The prices displayed are all hourly rates based on the package which you wish to pay. For block bookings a full payment needs to be made at the time of booking. For PAYG we take the first lessons payment at time of booking and then at the beginning of each session thereafter.

If your not sure about your needs, then please feel free to contact us, and we can provide you with advice and a custom quote.


How old do I need to be to have tuition with MisterMaths?

We teach students from primary school age, through to secondary school and GCSE’s. We also have lots of adults having tuition with us, from people who need to retake their GCSE’s to people who need to brush up on their Maths to get a new job.

Do I need any equipment?

No! It’s really simple, we have everything you will need. If you wish you can have your own equipment such as scientific caluclators etc.

You can also purchase revision guides and workbooks at cost price from us.

For online lessons it is not necessary to have any extra equipment apart from a computer/laptop with an internet connection. Some pupils feel purchasing a headset and a tablet makes life easier.

How much notice do you need to book a lesson?

You may be able to book giving up to 48-72 hours notice but you must contact us as soon as possible to confirm availability. It is always best to give us as much notice as possible so that we can prepare for the lesson so that you will get the most out of your lesson.

How far in advance can I book lessons?

It will depend on the time of the year and how far in advance lessons have already been designated. Most of the time, up to six weeks in advance is a reasonable amount of time for advance booking and will also ensure that you have a regular slot available for Maths tuition if that is what you require.

How many lessons can I have a week?

You can have as many or as few lessons as you like. When you speak to a tutor they will be able to help you to decide how often you should have lessons so as to make progress. Most of our students will have a lesson each week and perhaps more than one lesson a week on the run up to exams. See the pricing page for more information.

How long is a lesson?

Most students have an hour long lesson but you can choose to have a slightly longer lesson. We would not recommend having a lesson for longer than 90 minutes unless you are preparing for an exam or crash course.
