Tailored Learning Experience

At Oxford Summer Courses, we understand the importance of a personalised learning experience. For ages 13-15, our Mathematics Summer School offers an intimate learning environment with small groups of no more than 8 students. This allows you to engage directly with your teacher, ensuring ample time to ask questions and seek guidance. Interactive learning is at the heart of our approach, as our teachers guide you through new concepts and provide practice tasks to solidify your understanding. You'll have the opportunity to collaborate on group projects, conduct independent research, and discuss homework assignments within the class. This interactive setting fosters a vibrant exchange of ideas, with students learning not only from their tutor but also from each other's diverse perspectives.

For ages 16-24, our teaching methodology follows the revered Oxford tradition of tutorial-style teaching. You'll participate in interactive seminars with expert tutors, where self-directed learning and critical thinking take centre stage. In small groups of no more than 8 students, you'll embark on a journey of exploration, completing two pieces of independent work—essays or problem sheets. Your tutor will then evaluate your work in 1:1 or 2:1 tutorials, providing you with personalised feedback and the chance to engage in insightful discussions. Upon completing the course, you'll receive a certificate and a letter of recommendation from your tutor, highlighting your accomplishments and newfound insights.
