Two pass qts maths test at 3rd attempt with intense tuition

Ellie contacted me in early May: "It's my last attempt I've got no confidence left and it'd be great if you could help"
We fixed up a convenient date, she drove from South London for a couple of hours intense qts maths tuition and took the qts numeracy test the next day.

The result:
- "I passed my test today David! Thank you for all your help!! "

Abby contacted me in late April and asked for help to pass her last chance. She was really stressing about her qts maths test and thought some 1-1 help would really help. She had a two hour and a one hour intense qts maths session and took the test the next day.

The result
- "Hi David, Just to let you know that I took the qts maths skills test today and passed! Thanks so much for your help, the techniques you taught me really helped me with the mental arithmetic." Thanks again,
Abby, May 29, 2014


I passed my qts numeracy skills test. It was my 3rd & final attempt, having previously failed the first two tests by 5 & 6 marks in the mental arithmetic area.

I brought both of your qts maths packs in July and spent time working through them. The Mental Arithmetic videos really strengthened my skills in this area. Before I was getting 3-4 marks, but your videos offered simple, easy to understand methods; and I was passing this part of the test with 10-11 marks.
The Stats & Arithmetic pack was extremely useful. It was very detailed and explained certain tips and tricks to look out for. I think your revision material prepared me for the test very well and ultimately helped me to pass the test!
Overall, brilliant revision material and I would recommend it to anyone struggling with the tests! You can pass 3rd time like I have and get QTS.
