We have all had the experience of a "bad teacher" and we know it's not pleasant. Often the teacher is simply a bad match for that particular student rather than being a "bad teacher" in general but in either case the student has a serious problem. This is why many parents contact us for a private tutor - their child just can't "get it" when their teacher is teaching. It's incredible how one explanation results in more confusion whereas another results in that...

This is why many parents contact us for a private tutor - their child just can't "get it" when their teacher is teaching.
It's incredible how one explanation results in more confusion whereas another results in that "aha" feeling we all love so much! It is really a matter of getting the "right" tutor and not the "best" one. We see this every day in our work. A tutor might have hundreds of hours of experience and might have received dozens of testimonials from students, however, even such a tutor doesn't click with all students. Every tutor gets bad feedback sometimes. It's all about getting the right fit and this is what we do!

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.
Currently, Rav just needs to work on being more careful about how he checks his questions to attain the right answer. Besides this point, there is no outstanding learning difficulty he possesses. Needs to understand that his method, though effective in some cases is not applicable to all cases and hence, requires full knowledge of the correct technique.
Glen picks up new concepts relatively quickly, and shows confidence with his work when he has practiced something enough. Although he does often appear reluctant to work at the start of a lesson, he often engages relatively quickly after the lesson is underway.
Not too confident, and a bit slaggish in the thinking and problem solving skills required for math. But this is not too big of an issue, can still work on this. Just need to make him more interested in math.
As a tutor, I found Ezy Math tutoring to be absolutely excellent. It was so convenient to be matched with students in my local area. The training modules were both interesting and useful, and it really made me think about what I could do to provide the best possible tutoring service.
I believe my biggest accomplishment has been to raise the grades of my students from the average levels to the above-average, since it reflects the fact that all students have the potential for great talent with hard work and practice. I came to work with Ezy Math Tutoring to pass on the positive experience that comes from having a good tutor in a challenging subject. From my experience, I re-learned how to teach others ideas, concepts and facts through various established and self-made techniques, which I can apply to my own studies with my fellows and peers. I also got into the discipline of keeping reports, records and other documentation, an important skill for any career. Having uni students as tutors allows for a more recent and up-to-date understanding of school-level subjects, as well as a greater understanding of the challenges involved and strategies to beat them. I would recommend Ezy Math Tutoring to uni students who want to keep their maths skills sharp, enhance some valuable skills, and earn some pocket money as well.
Our son lacked confidence when tackling maths subject matter and in doing the associated homework. We contacted Ezymath Tutoring, who quickly found us a tutor who worked well with our son. As the sessions continued, our son gained knowledge and confidence in the subject matter, improved his study technique as well and ultimately got a satisfactory result in his year 12 exam. We would recommend Ezymath Tutoring to any parent looking for assistance in their child's maths education. The tutoring is backed up with helpful hints and reference material as an added bonus.
