Over the last few months I have been working hard to produce some videos that I have uploaded to Youtube covering several topics on the A-Level Maths and Further Maths courses. The video at the start of this post will take you to a Youtube playlist of my A Level Further Maths tutorial videos, and through my Youtube channel you can view all of my A-Level Maths tutorial videos (and many more videos besides).

In my videos I usually try to address specific problems which, through my years of tuition, I have noticed that people often have. In other words, the videos that I make are not just ‘going through’ a particular topic in the same way that they are covered in the classroom or in the typical textbook; I make a real effort to emphasize the specific issues that people get stuck with. I don’t really make videos (at least not any more) that just ‘go through’ a topic – if I don’t feel that I have anything positive and fairly original to add to the noise that already exists then I just don’t make the video.

I am always keen to know what problems people have with their maths studies – there’s always new issues that crop up that, even after all these years of tuition. I want to help people come to an understanding of these problems so I can help people overcome these problems. If there is anything that you would like me to make a video on then please let me know – if (and I emphasize the ‘if’) it is something that I can make an original contribution to then I will be more than happy to make a video on it for you – just let me know. On the other hand, if you just want to ask a question about anything that is presenting a problem for you with your maths studies then please get in touch and I will be very happy to help.

I would be very grateful if, after watching my videos on Youtube, you would like and share my videos and subscribe to my channel – this really helps my videos get viewed by more people and gives me a bit of motivation to keep on keeping on making more videos.

Following on from my previous video Ten Ways to Improve Your Chances of Success in GCSE Maths here is the next video in my Ten Ways series for A Level Maths and Further Maths.

As with my last video I’ve tried to focus more on the habits that I think a good A Level student needs to have to have a better chance of being successful in their studies. I didn’t want the video to just be a list of what I think are the most important topics to revise for A Level maths because I’m sure that there are a ton of videos already out there that do just that – personally I don’t think that you should necessarily prioritise any topics over others as they could all come up in your exams as ‘big questions’.

Also as with my last video this video has come about through my own personal observations as a professional maths tutor in Leeds of my A Level maths students and noticing common themes (I didn’t want to say denominator!) amongst those who do well and get the grades that they want and those who unfortunately don’t do so well. Believe me when I say it isn’t just down to knowing the topics – you have to have the right attitude to the subject to be successful at A Level maths.

I hope that you find the video useful – it’s a bit longer than I expected it to be but if you think it’s too long then … well … I guess just don’t watch it to the end, though I really hope you do watch it to the end because there might be some useful stuff for you. I’d love to know if you have any of your own tips and advice that you’d like to share with other A Level maths students. If I get enough suggestions then I might make another video to share some of your tips!
