(1 student review)

Hi! I'm Dan Chicos, and I'm here to make maths not just understandable but also enjoyable for high school students. With 20 years of combined experience as a high school maths teacher and tutor, I believe that I can provide a more personalised and impactful learning experience to my students.

I hold a graduate diploma in education and a bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering. My academic background equips me with the knowledge and skills needed to simplify complex math concepts for my students.

I teach high school maths, from algebra to calculus, and prepare students for their QCE and HSC final exams.

I believe in tailoring my teaching methods to suit each student's unique needs and learning style. My goal is not just to solve problems but to ensure students understand the underlying principles, think critically, and develop a genuine appreciation for maths. I use Maple software which allows students to explore and solve maths problems in an interactive way using helpful tools. The online lessons are conducted on Zoom.

I offer tutoring services both in-person, at your home, and online. Whether you prefer face-to-face sessions or the convenience of virtual learning, I'm committed to providing an effective and flexible learning experience.

I can be contacted at 0435 856 908 or ourmathstutor@gmail.com.

I offer a free 1-hour trial lesson.

I have a Working With Children clearance for both, Queensland and NSW.
