Description

Founded by two recent Cambridge graduates, Westbound Maths has been running in-person training for students based in North London since 2018, and now we are online! Our courses are designed for Exam Preparation and Grade Improvement with proven results- 88% of our past students improved their final grades by at least one band from predicted grades!

What Complete A-Level Maths: Mechanics Course in 5 Lectures teach:
The Westbound Maths Complete A-Level Applied Maths: Mechanics Course covers the entire A-Level applied Maths: mechanics syllabus which represents 1/6 of the final exam weight for A-Level Mathematics qualification. The course consists of 5 lectures with over 4.5 hours of class videos, accompanying exam- styled homework and detailed mark scheme for the following topics:
•Forces: Newton’s three laws of motion, how to draw a force diagram showing weight, friction, normal reaction, tension, thrust/compression etc.
•Moments: how to measure the turning effect forces have on an object.
•Vectors: understand that vector quantities have both magnitude and direction, and its application.
•Kinematics part I: constant acceleration kinematics and suvat formula, projectile which is an application of constant acceleration kinematics.
•Kinematics part II: variable acceleration kinematics, displacement-time graph, velocity-time graph.

How to fully utilize the course materials:
•Class video: we always start with the key concepts and definition within a topic, and then jump straight into a past exam question (sourced across major exam boards) to see how these concepts are tested and applied, then you will be given an exam-styled classroom exercise for practice followed by a detailed step-by-step guide on how to solve it.
•Handouts: every lecture is accompanied with a handout that summarizes key concepts covered, exam- styled question solving examples, and classroom exercise solutions.
•Homework with exam-styled questions: for each lecture, the homework contains exam-styled questions which should be completed under exam conditions to help students identify any knowledge gap.
•Mistake Diagnosis : use the detailed sample solution to diagnose any mistake in homework which is the key to grade improvement.

Jenny founded Westbound Maths after graduating Cambridge University with a master’s degree in Economics. Westbound Maths courses are designed for exam preparation and grade improvement to bridge the gap between learning and exam taking with proven results. 88% of our past students improved their grades by at least one band in their final exams.
Jenny has been doing A-Level Mathematics tutoring and classroom teaching since 2016. She taught at the Millwall Youth Football club and tutored students of all grades. More importantly, having been a student until recently, Jenny understands the challenges of exam-taking and help students target that in particular.
​The idea of an exam-centric Maths course came to Jenny and her partner when they were tutoring students for their A-Level exams. The most common struggle their students faced was to translate classroom learning into answering exam questions. In searching for a solution, they were surprised to find little resource on exam-taking techniques. So they started Westbound Maths, a structured training course specifically designed to prepare students for exams from early on and help student achieve desirable grades.
