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 Blanchview. 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.
Max was a new student of mine in 2019. Max and I were very open with my intentions to have him talk aloud when working through questions but to also balance that with working silently to prepare for exam situations. Max didn't have any issues putting pen to paper, but made messy corrections and tended to write down too much working out. This also hindered Max's efforts to back check his work and review his working out.
Has a strong desire to learn new ways of problem solving method. Has a positive attitude towards learning, but sometimes goes off track. Work is always in detail, reflecting a good approach to understanding. Needs to improve on submitting homework on time, and asking more questions in school.
Ashton has mastered dealing with negative integers in a variety of equations and improved his geometry knowledge. We have moved on to algebra, where the new rules will need time to be well understood. Ashton's biggest problem is still an over reliance on his intelligence and a need to move too quickly. His careless mistakes have reduced, but for someone of his intelligence need to be avoided almost completely.

Ethan is settling in very nicely with working with Jordan, who is very professional, friendly and approachable. Ethan is comfortable working with Jordan and is beginning to gain a little confidence in his approach to maths, so we are more than happy to continue working with him.
Georgie is really enjoying coaching with Gabrielle. She's already doing so much better in maths at school (her teacher has commented on the huge improvement at recent parent teacher conference!). Gabrielle is a real asset to your team. She's so polite, punctual, intelligent and just fantastic.
