  • Facing a numeracy test at your interview? We can help you, come and ask us about improving your skills.

Our promise

At the maths support centre we will never laugh at you or say things like “you should be able to do that”.

We understand that maths can be tricky, especially if it is a topic you haven’t seen before.  It can be difficult to pick something up first time, particularly if you had to go through it quickly.

Maybe you just want someone to go over a topic again, at bit slower this time, or someone to show you a few extra examples.  Perhaps there is part of one example you just don’t follow and need someone to explain how they got the answer they did.

Whatever the question the Maths Support Centre staff are willing and able to help, so come and ask us.
