I’m sure for all you it feels as if the school year just started but we are already approaching the mid-year exams. In order to assist the Grade 10 – 12 students in preparing for the Maths & Physical Science exams, we will be offering a host of sectional & revision workshops starting this Saturday, 13 May, and running until the 18th of June 2017. I have also included some NBT workshops for the benefit of the Grade 12 students and I recommend that they attend as many NBT workshops as possible before taking the test.

During a revision workshop, we revise all the sections that will appear in an exam and work through a whole exam paper. A booklet with notes will also be provided. Please book workshops that will suit your exam time table the best.


Please have a look at the schedule below and book the workshops that will be suit your needs. I have noted the exam dates of the schools that I have.


Please take note of the following regarding the workshops:

Email admin@madaboutmaths.co.za or contact us on 074 584 3449 to book for these workshops. The sooner the better as space is limited.

All workshops will take place at the Claremont branch.

There will be more than one revision workshop per grade, subject and paper. Students are more than welcome to attend more than one as different question papers in each workshop.

Please note that a minimum of 5 bookings are required for the workshop to take place. Confirmation of workshop will be sent 2 days prior, so please book ahead of the time.

If a workshop is booked and you decide to cancel your booking a 24-hour cancellation policy applies. If less than 24-hour notice is received the workshop fee will still be payable.

Workshop fees are payable prior or on the day of the workshop.

Do not hesitate to invite your friends, as these workshops are open to the public.

If you refer friends and they book the workshop, you will receive a 20% discount on your workshop fee (per referral).
(Referrals only apply to students that have not attended lessons or workshops at Mad about Maths previously).

These workshops will also benefit IEB students.

With exams starting later this month, we would like to remind you that should you want to move your holiday lessons forward to use them for exam preparation, we would be happy to assist you with this. Please request these lessons as far in advance as possible and we will confirm for you the day before the lessons.


As always Mad about Maths will remain open during the holidays and we strongly encourage all students to continue to attend their lessons as normal. Especially grade 12 students! Should a student not wish to attend in the holidays, we will allow for the contact to be downgraded for July to allow for the lessons to be rescheduled with ease on their return. Notification of downgrade must be received by 20 June latest or we cannot assist you. August lessons will be billed as per the current contracts. The minimum contract to downgrade to will be a one hour contract. If you are already on a one hour contract, no downgrade will be possible.

Even if the student does not wish to attend during the holiday, we will bill for the month and these lessons are to be rescheduled by yourselves, either earlier in the term, for exam prep., or once they have returned from holiday. As always, all lessons to be rescheduled within the following calendar month. All lessons will resume as normal from the first-day term starts. We will, therefore, expect all students who have given notice of non-attendance on the holidays to return for their normal lessons or forfeit these lessons. All students not attending in the holiday must send written notice of this or will forfeit all their lessons.

Claremont branch can be emailed on admin@madaboutmaths.co.za and Bergvliet on tuition@madaboutmaths.co.za with lesson rescheduling requests or alterations to July billing.

Best of luck to all our students for the upcoming exams and we encourage everyone to make use of the workshops and lessons to prepare as fully as possible for these exams.

 

Kind regards,

 

The Mad about Maths Team.
