I am a registered and experienced maths teacher at a senior secondary school, Adelaide (Reg. Number 603828).
I teach year 11 and year 12 SACE specialist maths, maths methods, general maths and physics; IB and Year 8-10 students are also welcome.
**2017 SACE Results: 13 students achieved 99+ ATAR. Congrats to Georgia G (ATAR 99.95, A+ in maths methods), Mimi K (ATAR 99.90, A+ in general maths with merit), Lisa W (ATAR 99.90, A+ in spec maths and methods), Cicily M (ATAR 99.0, A+ in general maths) Most students achieved 98+ ATAR. Well done and good luck!
I have been a maths teacher and tutor over 15 years (please refer to my students' feedback above). I now know a great deal more about what constitutes successful maths learning and the ways in which all students are able to achieve at a high level. I have specialist experience in teaching year 11 and 12 maths (SACE and IB)at all levels. As a professional maths teacher plus years of the tutoring and teaching experience, I am able to provide the support and encouragement that is critical to your success.
Building a student's understanding in a topic increases their confidence, enjoyment and interest in the subject as a whole. This is a self-reinforcing cycle that results in strong improvements. The level of work is designed to improve the particular student, whether converting a struggling student into a high achiever or extending the ability of capable students. Sessions start with a quiz on previous work which is marked and discussed. I always prepare a lesson plan and worksheet which includes a range of questions that relate to students' tests or exams each lesson. All year 11 and 12 students should receive at least five SACE or IB practice tests before their school assessments.
Our focus (more than just tutoring!): * focusing on smart time-saving finesse, * pressure management, * multi-way double-checking techniques, * recovery learning from mistakes and errors, * confidence gaining, * formulated problem-solving strategies, * exam oriented tactics & tips * thoughtful and logical approach rather than cramming, * learning procedure in simple steps from examples via formulas to summary; are some of the teaching and learning experiences.
Maths is fun. I will let you know how to 'Play with MATHS'...
