Chemistry can seem a bit technical. It's all abstract formulas and content that seems impossible to learn and barely manageable to memorise. The material keeps piling up and how are students supposed to truly learn anything when they're constantly missing something and falling behind? And it's not only about the grades.

Chemistry can seem a bit technical. It's all abstract formulas and content that seems impossible to learn and barely manageable to memorise. The material keeps piling up and how are students supposed to truly learn anything when they're constantly missing something and falling behind?
And it's not only about the grades. Sure, students who struggle with chemistry want to pass that test and get their grades up. It's usually their only end goal and that's completely understandable. However, we've found that once students start catching up and chemistry doesn't seem like such an enormous hurdle, their self-confidence improves as well.
When they have someone to guide them, make sense of the clutter of information and demands, students tend to struggle less in other areas as well. Your child could feel less anxious about tests and their performance, learn how to tackle tough situations and become more independent, all with the help of a local Altona chemistry tutor.

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.
