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.

George from 19% in Year 8 to accelerated maths in Year 10.
He was assessed and found to have a potential to be high performing in maths, but his results showed otherwise.
He was recommended a plan of group classes combined with individual tutoring at GEA. He worked very hard during the term and also during the school holiday. George spent a year at GEA then was good to go on his own as he improved significantly and become confident and independent in his maths. Two years later, we received a phone call from George’s mum telling us that George was chosen by his school to do accelerated maths in Year 10. She was over the moon and was kind enough to call and share the great news with us.
