Open invitation to children in year 5 and year 6 (10-13 years old)

online maths tuition that goes above and beyond the classroom!

The truth is Maths is a key skill our children require in order to interact and engage with our world at large.

Yes, this programme will support their ability to answer Maths questions in exam-style formats.

The bigger picture: This programme will make connections between your child's life and how we use these Maths skills beyond the classroom and in the real world.

So, if you're tired of the moaning and groaning that greets you each time you try and encourage your child to sit and do their Maths world, then you're in luck!

The Bettering Youth Real World Maths Club is the only Maths tutoring that will not only help your child to develop the skills that are fundamental to the KS2/KS3 Maths curriculum, but we will also teach them about how these theories and concepts can be applied to real-world Maths problems.

You want your child to feel prepared for the future, and we strive to always support children above and beyond the classroom. What better way than to teach them how what they learn in the classroom is important for the real world.


This 12 week Maths tuition programme will cover the skills and techniques required to boost Maths understanding.

We will blend this academic knowledge with real-world applications to create a relevant and fun experience for your child.

Our sessions will be broken into three parts:

  1. Teaching: Ensuring all students understand the relationship between and the use of Geometry
  2. Building: Providing opportunities for students to explore and deepen their understanding of these concepts through practise and play
  3. Connecting: Bringing these topics to life by investigating real-world applications of these concepts

V did really enjoy the poem (The Raven). When I asked her about it she started reciting it to me! She said that it’s mysterious and really dramatic and is now her favourite poem. Was a very good choice!

She is loving Comprehension Club – especially this term’s focus on Poetry. Thank you so much! She has sent her poems to her Nanny to read as she also writes poetry!

She came out of the session this evening and showed me what she had done. She said she really liked algebra so that’s a pretty good result I think!

Thank you for creating the Comprehension Club. My daughter really loves seeing all of her ‘club friends’ every week and I can hear her confidence really building as she explores these comprehension questions with you. It’s been a real weight off.

S came away from today’s Comprehension Club with a big smile on her face! I loved hearing her reading out loud to the group. It’s not something I ever thought she would be confident enough to do! Thank you!

We were recommended Sarahlynn at Bettering Youth by a friend and our daughter has been attending both Maths and Comprehension club for the last term. We are so glad that we signed up. V was doubting her abilities and Maths, in particular, had become a bit of a block. She was very nervous about joining the group but Sarahlynn is so encouraging. She creates a really warm and caring space where the children feel confident and capable. Now I hear V participating and sharing ideas with the other children in the group, without fear of ‘getting it wrong’ or ‘sounding silly’. Her self-belief has really grown and she looks forward to the classes each week. Thank you Sarahlynn!

In this video, I explain how to divide and multiply numbers by 10. I start by setting up a place value chart and explaining the significance of the “THS” notation. Then, I demonstrate how to divide a decimal number by 10, emphasizing the importance of shifting the digits to the right. Next, I show how to multiply a number by 10, highlighting the need to shift the digits to the left. Throughout the video, I provide clear examples and step-by-step instructions.
