Maths is a cumulative subject—each new concept requires a solid understanding of the concepts learned before. At School is Easy, we hire experienced Maths tutors who can help your child struggling in Maths, or who simply wants to get ahead in the subject.
School is Easy Tutors work with students across a wide range of maths topics at all levels including:
Even if you don’t want a career in maths, being able to do well in the subject has far-reaching benefits beyond graduation!
Maths students don’t just know how to add things up or figure out equations. They are great analytical thinkers, problem solvers and pattern recognisers. They can help prove ideas, predict possibilities, and guide important decisions for businesses and governments. Those skills make them great candidates for jobs in business, engineering, manufacturing, meteorology, other sciences, government, teaching and more.
At School is Easy, we take a systematic approach to helping students with mathematics. Our trained and qualified maths tutors personalise each session to the needs of the student, helping them to improve their understanding of the material; improve their performance on homework, quizzes, and exams; and build the student’s confidence. Plus, all of our tutors have all undergone a criminal background check to ensure safety in your home.
In addition to helping students strengthen their foundation in maths, our tutors also work on developing essential critical thinking and problem solving skills. Our goal is to guide students towards becoming strong independent thinkers, capable of taking on more challenging and rewarding work.
Here are some of the ways a qualified maths tutor can help:
Tutoring based on principles: knowing maths principles can help open the door for understanding maths in specific contexts, since maths is sequential, logical and patterned.
Using real life examples: exploring the ways in which a maths concept can be applied to practical situations can help a child understand its usage and function, so it’s not just an abstract theory.
Teaching based on learning styles: some children just need to learn the same thing they were taught in class, but in a new way. Maybe art needs to be incorporated for visual cues. Maybe speaking it out loud will help. Or maybe new explanations need to be given. The great thing about maths is that sometimes there is more than one way to find a solution to the problem you’re working on. That can make a maths tutor extra handy.
Tutoring to learn how to learn: a good tutor should be trying to work themselves out of a job, in a sense. If a tutor teaches a student study skills, a student can eventually use those tactics on their own, when a tutor is not there to help. This especially applies to maths tutoring, where exams are based on formulaic principles, but the details of the problem change on each question. A student should know how to approach any type of maths problem, without a tutor present.
Our tutors come with a plethora of teaching skills and experiences. They may use the above ideas for tutoring maths, or they may incorporate some of their own, based on what worked for them, or other struggling students. We do our best to match your child with the tutor who will fit well with their needs.
