Our number one goal is to provide you with the support, resources and know-how you've always wanted, so that now you will be empowered to have positive influence over your child's academic future!
IN HOME TUTORING
If you suspected that one-on-one coaching is the most effective form of personal tuition; you were right! To minimize distractions and maximise convenience, your private tutor can come to your home in Turramurra for one-on-one "learning time" whenever suits your busy schedule.
MAKING SENS OF MATHS
One of the biggest frustrations a young learner faces is when their school maths work feels "too hard." Our expert maths tutors are trained to use communication strategies designed to help your child make sense of their school work so that it becomes easy to understand.
Some children learn best by using "hands-on" models and practical approaches. Others learn better through pictures, diagrams, numbers or words. What is your child's strongest learning style?
Imagine how much more autonomously your child will approach their school work once they gain confidence towards it. Your maths tutor will use confidence building strategies as a powerful motivational tool so that your child will not only perform better in mathsl, they'll love doing it!
A young leaner's mind will function more effectively when it is engaged in learning. Engaged learning is our area of specialty, and is the key to improving attitudes towards school work. What stimulates your child's interest the most?
Your maths tutor will emphasise the importance of developing Higher Order Thinking Skills to deepen your child's understanding of everything they learn about.
English tuition is about more than just literacy; it's about communication and using words to build, demonstrate and transfer understanding.

We also provide private Maths Tutors who cover all aspects of the Secondary School syllabus through to HSC level.
MATHEMATICS - WHAT'S IT ALL ABOUT?
The most common complaint you're likely to hear from your child is "when will I use this stuff in life anyway?" If this is what your frustrated and often disinterested young man or lady throws at you as an excuse to justify their poor motivation when it comes to maths, here's the answer!
Maths is about more than just numbers and numeracy. Maths is about problem solving. Maths might use numbers to solve number problems, but it does more than just that. Maths is about using logic and sequential processes to solve problems. It's about breaking problems down into step by step formulas in order to solve them. It's about differentiating constants from their variables, and figuring out how to apply, adapt and understand formulas to overcome problems. We do this in life all the time. The only difference in maths is that we do this using numbers.
THE IMPORTANCE OF MATHS TUTORING
Whether we like it or not, mathematics is one of the most important subjects when it comes to getting into university. It is essential for any science related courses, and contributed significantly towards a student’s ATAR scores at the end of their HSC years. The problem is of course, that maths is perhaps the most common subjects that many students struggle with. It is therefore why there is such a high demand for private maths tuition, to help students understand mathematical concepts and strengthen their mathematics skills.

THE IMPORTANCE OF 'IN-HOME' PRIVATE MATHS TUTORING
"In home tutoring" is by far, the most convenient form of private maths tuition. Apart from its convenience, about this in-home approach is that it facilitates greater communication between the parent and their child's maths tutor. Your home in Turramurra is familiar to your child. The importance of this is that familiarity forms the essence of a comfortable environment when it comes to learning unfamiliar concepts. The 'at home tutoring' approach is important because it minimizes stress, and reduces distractions that are present in the class room environment (this includes after-school tuition centres in Turramurra as well which have group learning classes). If you prefer your child's one-to-one maths tutoring to occur in your home at Turramurra, you are welcome to negotiate with your maths tutor about finding a more suitable location in the Turramurra area of Sydney.

THE MOST IMPORTANT SKILLS YOUR CHILD NEEDS
Learning is about more than just memorising facts. Your in- home maths tutor will focus on the most important skills that your son or daughter needs to secure strong academic future. Their child's private maths tutor will focus predominantly on thinking skills and other competencies that are important when it comes to achieving the best possible assessment marks in their maths subjects. These include exam taking strategies, essay writing techniques, report writing skills and especially Higher Order Thinking.

TECHNOLOGY: THE FUTURE DEPENDS ON IT

Your Turramurra home maths tutor will focus heavily on developing their IT skills by emphasising computer based educational maths resources. Using computer resources is an excellent way to make maths tutoring more fun, interactive and engaging! Know More...
'MAKING SENSE' DEPENDS ON GOOD COMMUNICATION
Your private maths tutor will apply constructivist teaching methods to make sure that the information they are teaching, is communicated in a way that is easily understood. Constructivism is a communication tool which ensures that new information makes sense with ease, by building gradually on the learners existing understanding. When your son or daughter makes better sense of maths, they will not only learn a lot faster but they will feel a lot more confident and more 'connected' with their maths work. Know More...
THE 'EMOTIONAL ADVANTAGE' OF PRIVATE MATHS TUTORING
Private maths tuition is about more than just 'teaching' maths. Good private maths tutors don't just teach - they coach, they mentor, they motivate and they inspire. Parents understand that how a child feels about something will govern how they think about it, and consequently how they act towards that thing. We know how important these factors are when it comes to our children's school work. That's why your private tutor will focus on the emotional aspects of your learning about maths.
Strengths: Your child's private maths tutor will identify his or her personal strengths and learning styles to overcome barriers of anxiety, whilst capitalising on, and developing new strengths. Know More...
Confidence: Your child's private maths tutor will use strategic goal setting techniques to direct his or her focus on their progress whilst gradually building confidence towards areas they were previously struggling with. Know More...
Autonomy: Your child's private maths tutor will teach him or her how to use reflective practice skills to learn from mistakes more efficiently whilst conditioning an 'auto correction' pattern to learn more autonomously. Know More...
