SimplifyMaths is a small independent family business. Our background is solely in promoting good teaching and learning in mathematics. Our sister Company, SolveMaths, is a successful business that has a proven track record of significantly improving the provision and standards of mathematics across many schools in London. In addition to in-house school support, SolveMaths works with renowned education publishers such as Rising Stars (Hodders) and Harper Collins in assisting and writing some of their books and assessment products for schools. Therefore, we are up to date with the requirements of the National Curriculum and follow closely changes being made so it can be implemented in our teaching.
SimplifyMaths evolved after our experience of teaching in a tuition centre. We saw, first-hand, the confusion and frustration that parents and pupils underwent from learning at a tuition centre in an evening or at weekend. It was chaotic to say the least!
Here are a few examples of the difficulties experienced:
• Children jumping out of their cars on busy roads as parents could not find parking
• Roads were held up with cars stopping causing danger and frustration to other drivers
• Parents sitting in cars for the whole hour waiting for their child
• Parents that went home sometimes got stuck in traffic getting back to the tuition centre leaving the child waiting out in the cold in unsafe conditions
• Pupils travelling by public transport – often arrived late missing half their lesson
• This meant the pupil did not get any learning from the lesson which was such a waste of the parent’s money
We just thought that this was no way for a parent or their child to spend their valuable time. Hence, this gave us the inspiration of opening an online tuition centre. It would take away the problems that was experienced at learning in a tuition centre. Learning online would be such a welcoming proposition for both the parents and their children. The pupil could learn in their own environment and at a time that suits them and parents could carry on with their own chores or relax at home whilst their child learnt in their own home.
Hence, we researched the market to look for the best online teaching platform and tried many different platforms before we decided to go with the platform that we use at SimplifyMaths. We are delighted to say that since starting we have had many very happy pupils and parents. The system works well and it is like being in a live classroom.

Is Online Tuition Safe?
Yes, our program is designed so it only allows one tutor to have access to the lesson and this tutor has all essential security checks. (All security checks are available for your reference). You can record all lessons so you check to see what is going on second by second. Pupils have the option of deciding whether they want to see the tutor. However, the pupil can always see the tutor.
