SOCRATIC MATH TUTOR

 Melbourne - Narre Warren South

Teaching math through questions

Melbourne tutor in Algebra, Calculus, Further Maths, Geometry, Maths, Maths Methods, Maths Specialist

Hi, I'm Yianni. For over a decade I've been using question-asking (the "Socratic method") to teach mathematics more effectively than would otherwise be possible using more conventional teaching methodologies.

My teaching philosophy is simple:
-- Develop clear and comprehensive techniques for solving the relevant mathematical problems.
-- Use Socratic dialogue to help students reinvent and rediscover these techniques for themselves.
-- Use pictures to support the development of intuition and real understanding.
-- Test students repeatedly to find and address ‘gaps’ in their knowledge.

Past students have included four year-olds, PhD students, and many, many Year 12 students. Some have been neurotypical, while others have had ADHD, dyslexia or autism. And while some have been gifted, most came to me either because they were struggling with gaps in their knowledge, or due to an absence of motivation. In all cases, students have responded positively to the Socratic method.
