Masterclasses – A weekly focus on the topics you need

exam masterclassesOur masterclasses are “usefully different” from our one-to-one tutoring sessions.

Masterclasses are friendly, weekly sessions focussing on exam questions, problem solving and revision. They combine the friendly atmosphere of our one-to-one online sessions, with the benefits of small group learning at a lower cost. Our aim is to boost confidence around exams.

Masterclasses are interactive online sessions for small groups specifically in AQA A-level BiologyAQA GCSE science and Edexcel GCSE maths. You can connect however you want – with or without camera. Find out more about our masterclasses below. We hope you enjoy them!
