Not all of us have great memories of studying Maths at school and the thought of returning to the classroom to study this subject again may fill some with fear! Tutors at Sutton College understand this and will use different methods to help you learn the rules of Maths and they will teach at a pace that suits your learning style. We all use Maths at some point each day, maybe if we are going shopping, or if we are doing some DIY, or cooking the evening meal. The skills you will learn on this course will help make all these tasks easier.
