Online PR News – 12-November-2012 – UK – Stuckonhomework.com the new online learning tool for GCSE maths pupils, has just published the results of it’s first ever user survey – and the results make positive reading for pupils and parents preparing for maths exams.
Stuckonhomework.com, founded by Helen Royle and Teresa Watts, ex-television executives and backed by Sir Terry Leahy, ex-CEO of Tesco; offers a comprehensive set of short high quality maths video lessons presented by a practicing Head of Maths.
The first ever survey of StuckonHomework subscribing pupils and their parents has just been completed and the results are very impressive.
82% of all students who responded to the survey stated that Stuck on Homework helped them with their GCSE or IGCSE Maths. And 82% of those students who have taken their GCSE Maths exam stated that using Stuck on Homework had guaranteed or improved their predicted exam result.
School pupils, parents and teachers who subscribed to Stuck on Homework were also keen to express their views.
One parent said “I actually didn't use it for a child, I used it as a refresher for myself! I loved it. It was very clear and exactly what I needed”
Another pupil stated “Thought it was brilliant. When the teacher at school hadn't explained something it was really useful for getting the topic explained.
I was ill and missed class, Stuck on Homework helped me to catch up with work missed.”
Stuck on homework achievers include maths pupils Ella and Meredith.
Ella stated “I was predicted a Grade B at maths but I really wanted to prove my teachers wrong and get a Grade A. Having Stuck on Homework was really useful when I was having trouble with a couple of sections of work. Stuck on Homework allowed me to polish up on the bits I didn't understand and help to get me my A in my GCSEs which I am extremely happy about.” She went on to say “It explained everything in more detail than a teacher in front of a class of 30 ever really could and I really appreciate all the help it gave me”. Ella went on to achieve a Grade A.
Meredith who also went on to achieve a Grade A had never studied maths at all until October 2011. She was home schooled and chose not to touch maths as she didn’t like it! However at 16 she realised that she would have to get a good Maths grade in order to get into University so in October last year she enrolled onto a once-a-week evening course at her local college and subscribed to Stuck on homework.
‘I think Stuck on homework is a great idea as I can access it whenever I need to and get instant help, so when I am doing homework it will be there to help me.” claimed Meredith.
All students who responded to the survey stated they are likely to recommend Stuck on Homework to friends, family and colleagues.
