Virtual 1:1 Tuition

Our online courses incorporate several of the components that make our in-person summer school stand out. Our instructors not only introduce students to the core content of their chosen topic, but also assign and help structure an independent project. At Granta, we are committed to exposing our students to curricula that closely resembles what they will see at university, and helping them to develop the necessary skills to excel at this level. Learning how to design and execute an independent research project is a large part of this process. The format of this project will vary course to course, but will serve invariably to instil in our students the skills necessary for intensive research.

In addition to tuition hours allocated for exploring course content, our virtual courses all include a university preparation advising session. This session is dedicated to equipping our students with the knowledge to confidently and effectively pursue their university ambitions. Each student will receive a one-on-one counselling session with our university specialist, in which an action plan for university application will be created. Our specialist will endeavour to glean an understanding of the student’s particular interests, and consider academic performance alongside extracurricular accomplishments to create a bespoke list of ‘best fit’ tertiary institutions. Review of the student’s CV and personal statement(s) is also offered, when appropriate.’

Since Sir Isaac Newton was Lucasian professor at Cambridge, the university has been synonymous with the study of mathematics. This course offers an introduction to the fundamentals of higher mathematics, providing a backdrop to its concepts, theories and applications. Through the exploration of topics such as algebraic systems, calculus, probability and special relativity, you will learn how to think “mathematically”, gaining experience in constructing rigorous proof and communicating mathematical arguments with concision and clarity.
