Maths Tutoring Sydney

Maths tutoring at GEA is all about conceptual understanding.

It is not about the number of questions your child will go through, but it is about if they understand the concepts or not. Our Maths Tutoring methodology, curriculum and strategies are developed based on current research into education and cognition and follow Cognitive Load Theory, the leading theory into explicit learning.

Our Maths Tutors explain each concept at a deeper level and make sure your child understands it thoroughly. Following this, strategies are explained and demonstrated and linked to the concept tutored so your child can solve the questions with understanding.

Understand It

Making sure students understand the question; the information given, the key words, and what the question is asking.

plan

Plan It

Students are taught how to plan for the solution.

Usually, the planning part is the most difficult for students. They sometimes just want to give an answer. Planning is an important skill that if it is learned at an early age, saves a lot of tutoring and a lot of struggles in the future.

Solve It

Students solve the question simply by executing the plan. They will be directed by the tutors on ways to execute with minimal mistakes.

Learn It

After each question, students reflect on the question solved and on what they have learned from it. This is very important as it directs some of the cognitive load in the brain towards the vital process of building schemas.

Schemas are mental structure that can be used in the future to solve similar problems. Our tutors are trained on how to facilitate this step.

Success Story: I Love Maths

Lexie’s Story From hating Maths to loving it!

When Lexie started with GEA she hated maths as she was struggling with it. She had lost her confidence and was disengaged in the class. Her mum sought our expertise to help her change direction. In the first two weeks of her maths tutoring Lexie started realising that there are methods to help her and making mistakes was okay. She was able to understand a few concepts and hence she could solve some questions. Within a few weeks, she overcame the hurdle- I hate maths, and started gaining some confidence and believed in herself. She now enjoys maths and sees maths problems as a fun challenge and not something scary.

Lexie’s mother, Trisha, told us: “Lexie said to me the other day before we went to tutoring that she was excited about going, which she never would have said prior to attending Global Education Academy. She also told me about a maths test that she completed with all the answers correct! This is a massive achievement for her, one that would never have happened before attending maths tutoring at Global Education Academy.”

Our maths tutoring caters for students who want to get a head of the game and be on the top of the class as well as the ones who seek to be comfortable in the class. Also for parents who are seeking a different type of tutoring. They want their child to learn how to think and how to problem solve. If a student has an untapped potential our expert tutors will identify that potential and we can put them on pathway to prepare for OC test, Selective test, scholarship test or gifted classes. Our maths tutoring unlocks your child’s full potential.
