Is your child falling behind because they can’t do basic Maths?
Melbourne tutor in Maths, Year 5 to VCE Math Methods
(1 student review)
Do they really understand basic Maths? Are they using these key skills to get good results at school? Your child can change the way they do Maths - so that they not only understand it and can do it, but start getting better results more consistently.
The key to getting better results in Maths isn’t just repetition and being shown how to do it. It’s having good basic skills. Having good basic skills will give your child the foundation and confidence to try harder Maths - and feel less stressed about tests. Yet without basic skills, your child will struggle and have to rely on their calculator to do basic Maths. They’ll eventually get to a point where they don’t know how to use their calculator for more difficult Maths.
So how does your child move ahead? How can they get a better education in Maths without just being shown how to do it - without the understanding?
My Tutoring Uses Tried and Tested Methods that Work
Basic Maths is basic Maths and hasn’t really changed over the years. It’s easy to learn and builds confidence quickly and is the critical foundation for being able to do more advanced Maths.
Imagine your child being confident with Maths at school - doing well in tests and getting great results. It can happen even if they don’t think it can. Instead of struggling with Maths, your child will learn how to do Maths the easy way.
Whether your child is in year 5 or doing VCE, they’ll gain a true understanding of Maths and they’ll improve at Maths without feeling like they have to be an expert at it. It’s a system of learning that will engage your child in the learning process so they understand it and can then do it on their own.
If your child likes the way I explain Maths then they will become confident with Maths and their results will improve - how much they improve will depend largely on how much effort they put in.

I was previously a classroom teacher at Eltham High School where I taught Maths, Science and Computer Science and tutored students part—time after school hours. I also gained some Tutoring experience at Kip McGrath over a 3 year period after I left Eltham High School.
Since leaving Kip McGrath in 1999, I've been tutoring students in Maths from my home.
