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 Glen Alpine. 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.
Learning strategies primarily implemented were pen to paper (practical solving of math problems), back checking (recalling of general equations to solve various related problems), ok to be wrong (understanding possible pit falls in problem solving) and avoid rule dependence (trying to get comprehension of how formulas were derived and not simply memorizing them).
Shaun constantly displays a focused attitude and is very studious. Shaun has put in a considerable amount of effort, as is evident in his 17/20 English exam mark. He is learning essay-writing well and will continue to improve his writing skills. Shaun's work ethic is commendable. He always does homework when it is set and is motivated to succeed.
There were initially some small gaps in the areas of fractions/decimals/percentages and in algebra but Maddie has worked hard at these topics and now performs well. Maddie has minor problem areas in algebra and made some mistakes in her past exam paper, but we have gone through these together and Maddie now has a better understanding of both algebra and the previous exam topics.

I would love to offer some feedback on Derek. I discussed this response with Jaidan last night and he requested that I let you know that he thinks Derek is AWESOME. From my observations,Derek quickly created a great rapport with Jaidan which is important for effective communication. I have queried Jaidan after each session and feel that he is benefitting greatly from Derek's input. He is feeling more confident and very comfortable to source support from Derek. I could not ask for more at this stage so thank you and more importantly please thank Derek on my behalf.
For now, we won't be continuing but we haven't ruled it out for the future. We were very happy with your service and Jade is a beautiful person! She has helped Keegan with her confidence in Maths and helped improve her grade this year. We postponed tutoring at the end of term 1 because Jade had covered as much as she could before introducing new work, which we didn't want to do until it came up in school. Therefore, we had a break to see how Keegan went, and she's had no problems thus far. If any problems pop up this term, I plan to get in contact with you and Jade ASAP!
Aiden is really happy with Faraz. He felt a bit awkward the first week but the interactions were much better the second week. Aiden finds it very useful because he needs guided revision (it's not necessarily about learning the content). Definitely a good investment!
