Year 6 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 whether they understand the concepts or not. The Year 6 maths tutoring course is offered at this crucial age, where a student’s love for maths is either nurtured or quenched. We have seen many students change – from struggling to get to terms with this subject – to loving and enjoying the challenges that Year 6 maths tutoring offers them.
GEA follows a strict Maths Tutoring methodology with our curriculum and strategy based on current research into cognition. The curriculum follows our Five-C-Methodology and Cognitive Load Theory, the lead theory into explicit learning.
In our Year 6 maths tutoring courses tutors explain each concept at a deeper level and make sure your child understands them thoroughly. Following this, strategies are explained and demonstrated and linked to the concept tutored so your child can solve the questions with understanding.
Making sure students understand the question; the information given, the key words, and what the question is asking.
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.
Students solve the question simply by executing the plan. They will be directed by the tutors on ways to execute with minimal mistakes.
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.
Our Maths Tutoring curriculum is developed based on cognitive load theory and aligned with the Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA) and beyond. Our Maths tutoring courses have been specifically written to incorporate the outcomes and indicators from the Australian Curriculum for each stage of students’ learning.
The Maths Tutoring course allows the student who is struggling to get to grips with the work, thus building their confidence and setting them up for a solid foundation which is crucial for the rest of their future Maths classes.

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.”
