Her current role is delivering intervention tuition to students to improve their grades at GCSE in core subjects and help them achieve their personal educational goals.

Fractions are a vital lesson throughout all Maths studies and having a firm understanding of the theory and how to apply this is key in achieving a student's potential. 

In this class, students are going to learn about calculating a fraction of an amount. In order to get the most out of this class, students should already be able to multiply fractions and in this lesson, they will learn how to apply this knowledge.

This class can be used as revision of a topic students have studied in school or in place of a missed lesson.
