Finding a suitable maths tutor for your child can be difficult. Where do you start? What do you look for? Experience? Personality? Someone local? Should they teach their own content or work on your child's current school work? How often should you have tutoring? How long should each session be? Is a particular time of the day more effective than other times? So many questions, but, after years and years of experience, we can assure you there is no on-size-fits-all answer. Tuition is an individual matter....

So many questions, but, after years and years of experience, we can assure you there is no on-size-fits-all answer. Tuition is an individual matter. It's really about finding someone who is a good match for your specific situation. That means a good personality match + a teaching style that matches the student's learning style + a good balance between empathy and authoritativeness + many other things.
Unfortunately no tutor profile can tell you if the tutor will be a good match. You won't know that until you see them working together.
It usually doesn't take us more than a few days to organise a maths tutor in Alfords Point. And, we really want you to love your tutor! That's why your first lesson works as a trial. Don't think the match is good? We'll organise someone else...

The proof is always in the action, to get an idea of how tutoring works in practice check out some feedback from tutors. Typically tutors focus on strategies needed to make progress, what's going well and what needs improvement. Of course, every tutor has their own unique style that is tailored to your child's specific needs.
As is always the case, Brooke can sometimes suffer from (not so much "lazy thinking" but) "lazy reading", in that she will dive into a question before ascertaining that she has all relevant information. She might also be better served to have more "working out space" in another book or segment of her current book, because while her book is always immaculately tidy, it sometimes lacks the signs of how she came to her conclusions.
I like how he will attempt homework to the best of his ability, even if in the end he comes to the conclusion that he can't do it. He is still somewhat easily distracted during sessions but it has definitely improved. He is always very eager and willing to learn during the sessions, and although he does work more slowly on average, it takes him some time before he seems daunted by it. His homework is always attempted to his best efforts and sessions are always done well, minor distractions notwithstanding.
Spent a some time working on surds and exponents. Luke has a fairly good understanding of this now, but there is still a bit more work needed. I will need to see a bit more of Luke's work to make a proper assessment, but he seems quite comfortable using his numbers and with algebraic arithmetic. None so far. Luke's been a pleasure to work with!
Flynn is going well with his tutor. We have had 2 sessions and they have been productive. Thanks for your service.
Finn is responding well to Anthony's tutoring, thank you. Anthony is kind, knowledgeable and has a lovely manner. Finn is feeling more confident and we will be continuing with Anthony's weekly tutorials.
We are so happy and impressed with Pariese. She has already made a great rapport with Charlie, which was our initial concern. She is both both professional and engaging with an obvious passion for maths. She has given us feedback relating to Charlie's learning style and is active in finding strategies to suit him. The fact that he looks forward to his lesson, is a testament in itself. She is always punctual and happy to have a brief at the end of each session. I have spoken to Pariese about Charlie needing long term tutoring, to which she agreed.
