I am passionate about teaching kids Maths. I believe Maths provides a perfect platform to teach children to think, to ask questions, to admit they don't understand and to feel OK about it.....regardless of their aptitude for Maths. I really enjoy sussing out how a child thinks and gently steering them in a direction to make things easier.

The skills of being able to identify and communicate what it is that you don't understand, to take the help you need in order that you understand and then to apply your knowledge to slightly different situations are life long skills that can be applied to many situations in life. I am happy to sit with a student, and identify what strategies they are using to tackle problems and suggest a range of different strategies that may be more useful in tackling the problem. I find that once these options are explained to kids and they realise that they have been doing things the hard way and a light bulb goes on in their head.

As an adjunct to my teaching I use the Maths Online program. This way I can quickly target the specific problem and take a child back to where they started to go wrong. This creates a very solid foundation. I am very experienced in teaching kids who are struggling. I have a maths brain but more importantly I am becoming more and more aware of how a non-maths brain functions. I address the downward spiral that happens when kids miss vital understanding and then get stressed about not understanding the current work. This can impact self-esteem and overall self confidence.

Years 5 to 10 Maths naturally set a student up for the VCE years. If this knowledge is shaky then success will be very difficult in the VCE years. I thoroughly enjoy helping kids firm up this base knowledge so they can be off to a good start in their VCE.

I am happy to either work online or face-to-face from my place in Mornington, Victoria. I have Working with Children check and references.

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN

Carolyn Reid has tutored my grade 9 son in Math for about 2 months. Prior to him commencing his lessons with Carolyn he really struggled with his confidence in Math and this was reflected in the poor grades he received in his report.

After starting with Carolyn we noticed an immediate shift in his attitude toward Math as a subject and also in him completing his homework assignments. His progress reports have shown significant improvement in the last six weeks.

We have found Carolyn to be professional and also very patient with Max and would gladly recommend her to anyone looking for a tutor for their child.

Sincerely
G. Kuhnen

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN

Carolyn Reid has tutored my son in Maths throughout year 7. Will has always been challenged when it comes to maths but Carolyn's patient approach is proving to be very successful. Will enjoys the sessions and is even happy to have tutoring sessions on his Maths throughout the holidays, bringing him up to speed ready for year 8. The combination of an extremely good computer program with the extra explanation that Carolyn gives, is working very well.

Sincerely, S. Warwick

Experience

I have tutored a variety of students up to year 11. I have had success with students of all abilities. If you are struggling I am happy to go back to the basics. If you want to be accelerated I can do that as well. This year I am using the Maths Online program if my students need it. As a learning tool it is superlative, and the combination of one-on-one with the program is working very well.

Qualifications

My tertiary qualifications are in the biological sciences. However I have a love of Maths and of kids, so I am combining my 2 passions.

"Carolyn is amazing at what she does, she is engaging and I can’t praise her enough she has not only helped my daughter pass year 11 math in an uncertain time by helping her rebuild the fundamentals of math that she was lacking. Carolyn has also helped build my daughters confidence in learning."
