In Who Cares about Maths, Anyway?, Dr Majeda Awawdeh, PhD addresses the top issues with Australia’s current education system in her honest, analytical overview. Over the course of the book, teachers, students and parents are given the opportunity to explore the deep-seated problems of their current school system, including a lack of teacher training and development, one-size-fits-all curricula and unfocused government funding.
Along with this insightful analysis, Dr Awawdeh introduces a long-term vision that can improve the system for all involved, resulting in the progression of student success and higher ranking worldwide. Individuals looking for in-depth research in the area of the Australian education system will find her book a valuable resource in their quest to solve the problems today’s students face.
Dr Majeda Awawdeh, PhD is a passionate mathematics teacher who believes the Australian education system can be one of the best in the world, but a significant change in mindset by all stakeholders is necessary to achieve this.
As a frustrated high school mathematics teacher, she exited the system, and based on her doctoral research in primary school mathematics education and Cognitive Load Theory, founded an elite, research-based learning centre that teaches mathematics and English.
While running her centre, she met with many unsatisfied parents who sought her professional services to support their children’s education. She decided to write this book to help parents, students and teachers voice their concerns about Australia’s education system.
Dear GEA staff and teachers, I can’t believe Ema’s Year 6 journey is over. The last 2 years were very difficult in many ways and obviously made Ema’s preparation for selective and scholarship exams quite challenging. I have to thank all of the GEA staff and teachers from the bottom of my heart as even though there was a lot of “unknown” in our kids’ lives they made Ema’s study journey so much easier. Clear communication, very approachable staff helping us to navigate with online learning and most of all dedicated teachers helping our kids with their preparation for the exams and overall progress in their studies…
I cannot Thank Global Education Academy enough, I thought by enrolling my son to a private school he is receiving the best education possible. I was so wrong. Since kindergarten, his report was not that great, and I was a super concern, and whenever I raised my concerns with his class teacher I was told not worry, every kid is different and that he was doing well.
After reaching out to Global Education Academy within the first two weeks I could see the difference. Homework is an easy task to do with no time at all, no calls or emails from the school, after school learning at Global is something he is looking forward to it. Even on Saturday he is happy to go.
I am not sure what magic spell Kate is using on my son, but it is working! Thank you, Kate, for making my son believe in his ability, I am super confident that he is in good hands. I cannot wait to see his school report.
If you are struggling to try to find answers on what to do to help your children to thrive in their learning, Global Education Academy is the solution
“Hello, I thought I’d share some positive feedback on my son, Zac, tutoring experience from GEA Kogarah. He thoroughly enjoys his lessons with Ms Caroline each week so much so he looks forward to them. He finds learning fun even being on zoom. I have to say that if it wasn’t for her tutoring “pro-ess” and ability to keep him engaged he would definitely be further behind with the impact of COVID / homeschooling. Please pass on thanks and kudos. Cheers”
“Just so you know yesterday I observed Aidan doing his online tutoring classes and I must say I was impressed. Your platform is much better than what his school is currently using and I actually think he enjoyed the work which is great! He seemed quite focused and engaged with what the class is doing which was good to see.”
