(1 student review)
EXPERIENCED, CURRENT SECONDARY SCHOOL VCE MATHEMATICS TEACHER available for maths tuition at all levels - VCE specialist Maths, Maths Methods, Further Maths, IB maths high and standard levels, and other year levels.
I have an in-depth knowledge of VCE/IB syllabus, 20 years of experience teaching mathematics at senior levels and a track record of helping students to achieve outstanding results. I focus on developing students' thinking and problem solving skills by modelling effective thinking and making my thinking process explicit. Difficult concepts will be explained in simple, easily understood terms and common student misunderstandings and errors will be addressed. Regardless of your child's previous achievement in mathematics, he/she will gain self confidence and excel with my help. As a parent, you will be happy to see the difference I make for your child.
For Maths Methods Units 3&4 and Specialist Maths Units 3&4, students will enjoy high quality notes and examples provided as part of the tuition for each lesson. These can be used as the end-of -year bound reference book. CAS calculator skills will be explicitly taught and regular CAS quizzes will be provided to check their progress. A selection of VCE exam questions will also be used to make students familiar with the types of questions they will be given in the exams. Topic tests are also available at each level from Year 7 to Year 12.
Effective Online teaching is available during the COVID-19 pandemic. This is done by computer screen sharing while I am explaining a concept and writing on the screen. Students can ask questions at any point and I will also get them to show what they write on their paper to me to make sure their working out is correct.
If you prefer your child to be tutored by a peer, then my son is available for help. He graduated from high school in 2016 with a raw study score of 50 in Maths Methods and 50 in Specialist Maths. He also received Premier’s VCE Awards for being a top all-round VCE high achiever. He can share my resources to help your child achieve his/her best, but only at half of the hourly rate that I charge.
