Your unique situation will determine the way things are done. You may be struggling with the mysteries of maths and need more confidence and control in order to succeed. You may be comfortable with the formulae and procedures but less so with problem solving which is limiting your grade outcomes. Or you may be flying high with both the basic knowledge and the problem solving, but not quite as high as you want. I've worked with students for whom passing the subject is a minor triumph and who think mathematics might as well be written in Greek (actually some of it is). And I've worked with students who are already getting VHAs and just need to maintain that standard. That's when tutoring becomes more like a conversation.

Session times, lengths and days are flexible. We have a dedicated weekly time slot, but that can be changed in the event of illness or a special family event, or to allow for optimum revision before exams. That's life; it's always dynamic. We will find extra time or an alternative time, when and if we need to.

"My son was tutored by Mike during his high school years and graduated school with an OP of 1. He went on to graduate university with a Bachelor of Engineering (Honours). I could not speak highly enough of Mike in assisting my son in achieving his goals."
