I like to deal with the hard stuff: Senior Maths B and C (or tertiary), but I will take on students from Years 9 and 10 if they are dedicated and determined to succeed at a high level.
You can pass Maths if you know the rules and remember the formulae. But for higher outcomes you need not only to get the right answer, but to understand why that answer is correct. Then you'll be better able to deal with problem solving, which separates those who get C's from those who get B's and A's.

Session times, lengths and days are flexible. We have a dedicated weekly time slot, but some maths topics are harder than others and require more time; some require less. Exam revision may need extra time. We may need to reschedule in the event of illness or a special family event. That's life; it's always dynamic. We will find extra time or an alternative time, when and if we need to.
