Private tutoring in maths can be a key form of support for students who are struggling in school. When students, especially children, are stuck in classes of 20 plus others, it becomes impossible for even the best teacher to give them the attention they need to really learn the concepts teachers are teaching. This is compounded by the fact that there's little space for repetition and practice in the state curriculum. Once students have grasped a concept, they're expected to memorise it and move on. If they don't, this can lead to serious problems, as maths is a subject that builds on itself. The foundational maths we study in primary school and the first years of secondary school are the basis for all higher forms, like the Mathematical Methods and Mathematical Specialist subjects offered by the South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE). If a child can't master the basics, as they continue throughout the year and their maths education in general, they become more lost and confused and end up losing all self-confidence in the subject.
Each teacher also faces the challenge of catering to many different learning styles at once. Some students in the class may be auditory learners, meaning they need sounds or music to support their learning, while others might be kinaesthetic learners, meaning the key is to touch and play to truly understand something. Teaching to all of these learning styles is near impossible, and often results in students with more unique learning styles getting left behind in their studies. But private maths tutoring can help!
Luckily, private mathematics tuition can support kids in getting over these hurdles. Our private tutors have years of experience helping anyone from primary kids to, high school and university students reach their math goals. The benefits of having a teacher solely focused on your learning are endless. The tutor can spend time getting to know their student and their specific learning style, providing materials that will be more stimulating for them. The pace of the class is set by the student, without distractions from others, so if there's a tricky formula or concept, the tutor can take the time to practice and repeat it, until the student has mastered it. Private tutors can even identify gaps in a student's education and figure out where they got left a little behind, and what they need to study to catch up and reach the appropriate level for them.
Not at all! Private tuition is also great for adults who feel they need a refresher in subjects they studied as a child. There are many situations in real life where not being able to do some quick maths can be... well... a little embarrassing. From working out discounts on products to counting points in a game of darts, maths is a constant part of everyday life, and learning (or relearning) as an adult can help to build confidence, or at the very least save a little face. There's also evidence that learning maths is one of the best ways to train your brain and keep it active. Solving problems in a logical, procedural way is a skill that's invaluable in math and transferable to almost any real-life situation. Finally, if you're an adult looking to get into a new career, each hour lesson can give you the good background in mathematics you may need to be able to complete further studies or go into work.
Apart from helping to build confidence and critical thinking skills, learning maths as kids, teenagers or adults can definitely lead to exciting and surprising career prospects. As the global economy develops, there is more and more work being created in one specific area: STEM. Science, Engineering, Technology and Mathematics (STEM) qualifications are becoming more valuable everyday as technological development is rendering many other jobs obsolete. According to Western Australia Department of Education, "Currently, 75 per cent of jobs in the fastest growing industries require workers with STEM skills." The University of Adelaide even offers a free outreach program, delivered in school and online, called the STEM Academy, which helps students from Year 8 to Year 12 level work towards a university degree and possible career in STEM subjects like chemistry and physics. So whether you're about to finish high school, or an adult looking to get into anything from biology, to physics to engineering, private tuition in mathematics can free you on your way to a great new career.
If your studies include Year 11 and 12 Maths, whether general, specialist or methods, lessons with a private tutor can help you to learn and feel confident about taking your exams. Many of our tutors have gone through secondary school in South Australia, and so understand the different assessments and the easy learning strategies that allowed them to get great results in their own exams. One on one mathematics tutoring can even be useful with other science subjects like biology and chemistry.
Whether you want to help your child have a great understanding of the maths they're learning in primary school, have an important exam or you need lessons to prepare for a new career, taking private mathematics lessons can help you in your studies and be a great experience as well!
