ABOUT BRISBANE MATHS TUTORS
We specialise in Mathematics education for all levels from primary through to senior secondary students. We offer one-on-one support, as well as group sessions to accommodate all family's budgets.
At Brisbane Maths Tutors we are passionate about helping students help themselves, through quality explanations geared towards assisting students navigate their own way through problem areas of concern. In our group tutorials students gain valuable problem solving, as well as teamwork skills. Our group sessions have a maximum of 6 students where working together is key to solving modelling questions, a skill not explicitly emphasised in Queensland schools. In every instance, we focus on building your child's self confidence in their ability to learn in a supportive and encouraging environment.
Our one-on-one service is offered in your home, or a place such as a public library for your convenience at a flat rate of $50 per session. Whereas, our group sessions are offered at a significant discount to the one-on-one service at a flat rate of $40 per session (Note: the time and place of the group tutorials are yet to be confirmed).
