Usually the lessons are built based on the student's need. Before the first day, I will contact the parents to understand more about that student. At the beginning of the day, we will go through the principles of the topic (can be same topic at school or 1-2 weeks in advance, depending on student’s ability) and take some simple exercise as examples. Then we will go solve the homework to see whether the students have any problems. I classify the homework into different types of questions and will give instructions on the steps done in order to solve the questions.
In case the student find the homework is easy, I have some extra resources for him/her to challenge math ability.
I have been teaching in-home maths lessons to 5 high school students, ranging from year 7 to 10, for 2 years now. I am quite familiar with the curriculum as well as the type of questions that students tend to have in their exams. My students are different in their ability and learning style: some are doing really well (they are students from Sydney High School), while the others are quite low at catching up with the program. I build my lesson based on the student's need and always encourage the students to speak out their thinking so that I would know where they have difficulty.
The rate above is for 1.5-hour session. The rate for 1-hour lesson will be $40.
- I studied at Tran Dai Nghia High School for the gifted (Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam) and got 9.5 for the average (9.8 for Math). Then, in 2016, I completed Foundation Studies at The University of New South Wales (UNSW) in Commerce, and got a GPA of 9.8 (A+ for English, Accounting, Maths, and A for Economics). I started my first year at uni in July 2017 and so far my Weighted Average is 82.67
Given my results, it might be thought that I have been always good at math but it is not true. When I was in secondary school, math used to be my main concern until I met my beloved teacher in year 9, who showed me a diffenrent way to look at a mathematic problem. Since then, my confidence has developed and as a result, I achieved satisfactory results. I love working with numbers, that's why I have taken a lot of math- related electives at uni.
- Because I am working at tutoring centre so I also have Working With Children Check, which can be provided on requirements.
