Hey there!

My name is Mason Wong and I specialise in Mathematics tutoring for students in years 7-12. I am currently in my penultimate year for my degree in a bachelor of Electrical Engineering (Honours)/ bachelor of science (Advanced Mathematics) at USYD. I graduated from Ryde Secondary College in 2016 and ranked 1st with respective marks of 98 & 95 in extension 1 and 2.

Ideally tutoring wouldn’t be necessary. However, with the current classroom model with one teacher to 25-30 students, it isn’t physically possible to reach all the students in the allotted time. It results in large cracks in the foundational knowledge of the student. Since mathematics is such a cumulative subject, a few cracks in the foundation can make learning progressively harder. How often have you heard or thought “I’m just not a maths person” after some damn number tells you that you’re below average. It’s saddening.

I am a firm believer that given enough time and effort, anyone can excel in mathematics at any level they deem sufficient.

My aims: To develop the fundamentals of any student, to fix any holes they have in their knowledge and propel them to a fluency in mathematics that exceeds the current HSC syllabus. With the care of the student at the heart of what I do, an immediate consequence is that the marks will be maximised: but they will learn to appreciate mathematics and the beauty it encapsulates.

How classes will run: Classes run in 2 hour blocks with a maximum of 6 students in each class. There will also be quizzes once every 2-3 weeks to assess how well the student is understanding the content and be used as a diagnostic to fix any holes in understanding.

Please, feel free to enquire about anything (up to reason). One of the main ways we learn is through questioning- so ask away!
