It's my firm belief that we can all become great mathematicians if given the opportunity.

I have a passion for maths that is contagious. I've loved and enjoyed maths ever since I can remember.

But not everyone has the same passion.

I understand many start tuition as a last resort, sometimes forcibly or coerced by parents. Some feel like failures and want to give up before they've started.

Some are carrying a lot of baggage and have been conditioned over the years to believe they're hopeless and dumb and maths just isn't for them.

There was a period of time in highschool where I lost my passion. Although I had a brilliant teacher, he was not so brilliant in communicating and I started to fall behind. Soon I'd lost interest and my grades suffered.

Instead of giving up I went back to the basics. I bought some maths summary books and retaught myself everything from scratch. It wasn't long before I'd reignited the fire!

If your child is struggling, there is hope! Don't give up!

I will help them to identify the issues, catch up and get ahead. No dramas.
If your child is gifted, I will help them accelerate their learning and maximise their potential.

I've personally worked with and helped hundreds of students to not only catch up but learn to love maths and thrive.

There is nothing more exciting than reviving a smouldering wick, imparting hope and watching learners thrive as they discover THEY CAN DO IT!

I'll help your child to identify and acknowledge their weaknesses, embrace their strengths and to learn how to turn their stumbling stones into stepping stones.

We'll plug the holes, stop the leaks and make sure they stop falling behind. We'll work together to make maths easy, fun and practical.

Even better, we'll not only catch up but get ahead!

I'll use brain compatible teaching methods to help your child accelerate their learning!

I invite you to call me anytime and I'll explain step by step how we will work together for your child's success.

As William Butler Yeats said: "Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire."

Let's put an end to bad school reports and start lighting those fires!

Best regards,



Over the past 22 years, I've worked with just about every type of learner I can think of. Learners of all ages, abilities and backgrounds.

This has included:

~ students from non-English backgrounds (and I read, write, speak Vietnamese fluently)
~ young learners
~ 'lazy' learners
~ 'difficult' learners?
~ struggling learners
~ learners who were failing maths
~ learners who were many years behind
~ gifted learners
~ learners from selective schools
~ learns wanting help with school exam or selective school test preparation
~ unmotivated learners needing a coach and mentor to bring out their best
~ high achievers who wanted to soar higher (90% - 100%)

It doesn't matter how LOW or HIGH your child is scoring in maths, with the right advice, guidance and direction, they WILL improve, become BETTER learners and reach their full potential.
