Just like there is no one "maths" there's no one way to understand maths! Our private maths tutors specialise in helping your child to learn mathematics learn their preferred way. Our tutors don't just teach maths concepts, they make it easier to master maths.
Junior High School Maths Tutoring
From years seven to ten, your child learns the foundations of mathematics that they will need to pursue senior maths and university studies. Our senior maths tutors will all tell you that succeeding in year twelve maths largely depends on how well your child understood and applied year nine maths. If your child aspires to a university placement in maths, the sciences or business, they'll require a solid fundation in the early years of high school and, even primary school. Our maths tutors help your child not only to learn but to understand and apply mathematical concepts in the way that best suits their learning style.
Senior School Maths
The senior Mathematics curriculum is divided into four subjects:
Essential Mathematics (or Mathematics Standard)
The focus of this subject is on providing students with the mathematical knowledge, skills and understanding to solve problems in real-world contexts, be they personal situations, workplaces, or other further learning scenarios. When your child is studying Essential Mathematics they gain an understanding of financial interest, of the practical application of rates (e.g. fuel consumption and population growth), and are also introduced to area, volume, and other spatial measurements.
Our tutors know that Essential Maths students may feel intimidated by the subject matter and struggle to connect mathematical equations with practical applications. This can be detrimental to your child's attitude to learning maths. Our tutors know that "I'm just not good at maths" is another way to say "I need maths explained in a way I best understand". Our tutors not only aid our students in conquering this subject, but they implement the custom strategies and techniques needed to transform the way in which a student thinks about the subject. By generating a greater interest in the subject along with implementing the right academic strategies, success is guaranteed.
General Mathematics (or Mathematics Advanced)
This subject is essentially a continuation of junior Mathematics. Your student builds on the principles of algebra, geometry, trigonometry, graphs and networks, and statistics taught in Years 7-10 as they are introduced to financial modelling, network analysis, route and project planning, decision making, discrete growth and decay, scaling, triangulation and navigation, comparing groups, investigating associations and analysing time series.
Our General Maths tutors first determine if your child has been "rote learning, rather than understanding" the complex concepts of the subject. We then help your child to overcome barriers to achieving better grades by fitting the way that they interpret and understand information to how we present General Maths as a subject.
Mathematical Methods (or Mathematics Extension 1)
This subject introduces your child to practical applications of mathematical principles through the development of their understanding of calculus and statistical analysis. Your child will learn about rates of change, the use of functions, derivatives and integrals in the modelling of physical processes, and the use of statistics to describe and analyse uncertainty and variation.
Our Maths Methods tutors are specially trained to pinpoint when your child began to "fall behind" the concepts that lay the groundwork for Maths methods and then help them to 're-understand" and move forward. If you child is feeling overwhelmed or are struggling with the curriculum, our tutors can help put them back on the right path!
Specialist Mathematics (or Mathematics Extension 2)
One of the most difficult subjects in all of high school, this subject adds more depth to the practical applications of calculus and statistics taught in Mathematical Methods, and also includes the study of mathematical proofs, vectors, complex numbers and matrices.
It's impossible to fully grasp Specialists Maths without a deep and masterful understanding of all the mathematical foundations that came before it. Your child should be proud to take on Specialists as a subject, and if they're feeling overwhelmed or are struggling with the curriculum, our tutors can help put them back on the right path to a brilliant career.
How we keep creating A-students in the higher mathematics
Regardless of your child’s ability or subject area, our Mathematics Academic Personal Trainers are professionals at getting the best out of them and helping them reach their potential. Too many students in junior years simply adopt a process of rote-learning formulas, without also understanding the rationale or processes behind these formulas, and how to apply these to more complex or real-world situations. Our APTs focus on the mathematical process to ensure your child has a rounded understanding of the content, rather than just having good recall ability, thus helping them achieve success with the more tricky questions. They also strive to build a positive and encouraging working relationship with your child, creating a safe space in which their students can ask the silly questions they may be too reluctant to in class. This allows our APTs to help them fill in any knowledge gaps they have, therefore improving their confidence and their results!

... What Our Clients Have To Say ...
“Caelan came out of the session and said he had so much fun! I couldn’t believe my ears that anyone would ever say they had fun doing maths tutoring. He’s already finished all the homework Josh set for him and can’t wait for next week.”
My daughter Maddie was really impressed with her first session with her tutor, Derek. She said Derek was excellent and there was just no comparison with her last tutor. He is a lovely young man and completely put Maddie at ease. Her mood totally changed between the time before the tutorial to after. Thank you so much, and I can’t wait to see what they accomplish.
My son described his first session with his tutor Eric as “awesome”! He was on such a high afterwards. He was thrilled with the way Eric explained a maths concept advising that he taught him in a way that he really understood and my son is really excited about plans they have made together for his English. After the session with Eric, he continued to consolidate what he had learnt in prep and then was returning to study more that night on geography. Doug and I were so happy to hear all of this. Thank you so much. Sounds like we are off to a great start!
Their unique approach to helping students feel confident in their preparation for exams, assessments and increasing their literacy and numeracy skills, sets them up for success, no matter their hesitations. It is so important, especially within this generation, to find ways to keep students engaged in the learning process.
“Everyone comments on her confidence.”
“Cecelia has never passed English before so we’re really celebrating this C. The teacher said that she’s on course for a B this term and everyone, her teacher, her teacher’s aide and her reading group leader – they’ve all said she’s far more confident, putting her opinion out there, and finally feeling brave enough to read out loud. This has been a big celebration in our house.”
