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 Pennant Hills. 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.
A key learning strategy that we have only recently focused on addressing more thoroughly was lateral thinking. After finishing work that is perhaps more relevant to her syllabus, Jasmine was presented with a variety of puzzles requiring either lateral or logical thinking, or a combination of both. Jasmine developed skills in â€œthinking outside the boxâ€ as well as solving puzzles that require a more hands-on approach (e.g. using pencils to form certain shapes).
Mason's attitude varies from week to week with his understanding of the topic. He sometimes takes a while to get an activity. When he has gotten the activity he is all in, smile on his face and cannot wait for more. When he is having trouble, sometimes he need to be pushed gently to continue as he easily wants to give up.... even though he is close to getting it.
Main problems areas are worded questions and testing as the client was not overly impressed with NAPLAN results and was generally surprised. Becoming quicker with simple arithmetic is also a skill I am working on with him.

Ryan has been great. Jordon is already understanding more of the content which is fantastic. His words were "Ryan explains things much better than my teacher, so I understand it better."
All is going well with David. He is always on time and explaining things well with Ella. They are working through her math book and things are moving forward which is great. She will continue with a tutor once she starts school in Malaysia.
Thank you for your email. Ben and David are working well together and it appears that the working relationship is positive. Interestingly, Ben has instantly been able to move to working with David as both David and Ben have in common the same secondary school that Ben is currently going to. So while David attended the school some years prior to Ben, and much has change, they were still able to compare experiences about the school which helped start them working constructively. We are very satisfied with continuing with David.
