BILTIR Provides Maths Tutoring To CedarBridge

May 8, 2018

Bermuda International Long Term Insurers and Reinsurers [BILTIR] have successfully concluded a 12-week math tutorial programme for students at CedarBridge Academy.

This is the third year that this tutorial programme has been offered to students at CedarBridge Academy, providing weekly study sessions that focus on the school’s mathematics curriculum and exam preparation.

The sessions are available to all students who want to attend after school and are led by employees of BILTIR member companies, typically with a finance background.

The programme, which began in February, came to a conclusion this week as students prepare to sit for their IGCSE exams in May.

As part of the tutorials, students were provided with real life applications for the maths they were studying, to reinforce their understanding of the subject and to stimulate their interest. Study methods and exam preparation techniques were also covered in the sessions.

One student described the experience as “very helpful in [their] exam preparation” and that it was useful that the instructors were able to “explain how math is used in everyday life.”

Robert Steede, Instructional Leader for Mathematics at CedarBridge Academy, said: “We are grateful to BILTIR for their continuing support of the maths curriculum at CedarBridge Academy. The tutors who have given their time to this programme are inspiring role models to our students and provide valuable insight into the real-life application of math.”

Andrew Sooboodoo, Chief Risk Officer at Legal & General Reinsurance, coordinator of the programme, said: “It has been a privilege to work with Mr. Steede to enable BILTIR to provide extra maths tuition to CedarBridge students as part of BILTIR’s program of community support focused on education.

“BILTIR is committed to cultivating local talent in the international business industry and a strong maths education is a part of that. The BILTIR volunteers have thoroughly enjoyed their time at CedarBridge Academy and we wish the students all the best in their upcoming exams.”

    In the work place there is no such thing as indispensible, you are either worth you salt or you are not .

    People are an individual business ! Business will only hire the best .

    Recently several large business firms went belly up, who do you blame for that, People !

    Profit margins are very small if one is able to compete against others in business , not many business firms can take a hit against profit from which over heads take a big bight out of their bttom line.

    You may ask what is the is the bigest exence in business , it is labor, as each company has to meet payrol, sickness and time off, along with paid holidays will ” break the bank” .

    We have had it to good for too long and we are now paying the price.

    You may wonder why you either lost your job or did not get that job you alway wanted, its is all about productivity.

    If every body get a raise then some body will have to go home just to balance the books, alternately there will be a hiring freeze .

    If Bermuda is going to keep pace with the rest of the world, we need stop looking at the clock and stop working to rule and go slow is no longer an option.
