*BEYOND MATH, IT'S ABOUT HELPING STUDENTS SEE HOW BRILLIANT, ACCOMPLISHED AND SELF CONFIDENT THEY CAN BE*

With great passion for Mathematics and Education, and coming from a family of Engineers and Teachers, I combine the best of both worlds to provide the best explanations, strategies and overall educational support in Adelaide. The objective with all my students is to help them progress rapidly and improve their results consistently; increases of 20-30% within 2 weeks of starting lessons are not uncommon among them. *Each of my students' outcomes is MY OWN TOP PRIORITY*. With over 9 years of experience and over 300 1-on-1 past students, I am very confident with different attitudes and learning styles, and not only explain the topics in a fully comprehensible, tried-and-tested step-by-step way, but make sure discipline, focus, self-assurance and work ethic improve as well.

My approach goes well beyond tutoring, I coach and mentor my students paying close, in-depth attention to all aspects of their education and personal growth (study material, motivation, habits) so they become consistently more driven and accomplishment-minded. Beyond subject content, thorough assessment and constructive feedback of study and personal habits are provided continuously, lesson by lesson, with strong emphasis on discipline, focus, hard work and self confidence, so they become better, more fulfilled and successful in Math *and their other subjects too*, a decisive factor particularly in years 11 and 12.

Furthermore, I do understand the economic and time investment involved, and offer a completely personalised study plan tailored to the student's needs. Regular 2 hs/week of lessons results in at least a consistent B plus, and in most instances A. Previous work experience in telecom and mining companies and postgraduate studies in the UK and USA allow me to offer a more well-rounded educational experience.

Year by year my students have successfully gained admission to / graduated from ANU, the University of Adelaide, UniSA, Flinders University, University of Melbourne, Monash University, University of Sydney, UNSW, University of Technology Sydney, University of Queensland, University of Western Australia, Australian Defence Force. A substantial number of them enter highly competitive and demanding programs in Medicine, Dentistry, Physiotherapy, Optometry, Medical Imaging, Biotechnology, Veterinary Science, Law, Architecture, Civil / Aeronautical / Electrical / Mechanical / Chemical / Biomedical Engineering, Information Technology, Computer Science, Accounting, Business/Commerce, Finance, Economics, among others.

Thanks to Andrew I managed to get As in math methods and specialist. I am now in my second year of engineering at the University of Adelaide and his teachings have been invaluable. Andrew clears up all concepts to you, helps you be more confident lesson by lesson, and always has your objectives and needs in mind. He is super reliable and knowledgeable, always punctual and able to solve and explain even the hardest problems, those that no one else could help me with. I was also very impressed by his attention to detail, he tells you everything you need to know to improve, not only about the subjects but also study and time management habits. I feel very fortunate for all his help and recommend him without any reservations.

Andrew was my Maths tutor for nearly 2 years. He helped me a lot in Stage 1 and 2 Maths. I found it became very easy after he taught me different problem solving skils, exam skills and different maths concepts. With Andrew's guidance and support I obtained an ATAR of 99.65 and the National Merit scholarship at the University of Melbourne. I was also invited to the SACE Merit Ceremony on February 5th 2019.
Andrew is a very reliable and patient tutor, he can solve every hard maths problem for me and takes time to explain them. My final SACE scores were ideal with Andrew's help because I got A plus and A for my two maths subjects. Andrew is an excellent Maths tutor and I cannot recommend him enough!
Heidi Wooller (26 Jun 2020)
Andrew turned around my son from hating Maths to being the student who helps the kid next to him. After his first lesson with Andrew Casey showed more positivity and after six or seven lessons started talking about "getting an A in maths". He was always keen to go to his lesson (unlike Kumon, which I'd tried the year prior) and he showed a concentration level I never dreamed of. Each lesson was an hour and a half and I could scarcely believe that Casey remained focused and attentive throughout the whole session. Every time.
I received updates on my son's progress and felt that Andrew is as personally invested in his education as we are. I recommend Andrew very highly.
Ahmed A (24 Jun 2020)
Andrew is simply the best tutor I have had, and by far. He provided me with a comprehensive service with a high degree of specialization. My experience with him yielded very rewarding results, vastly increasing my grades on short notice. Andrew provided me with very valuable advice to succeed in study, class and under exam circumstances, indeed a tutoring service that is most thorough. These lessons have been invaluable and have retained their relevance in my current university studies. I would wholeheartedly recommend him to any student, whether struggling with math, or simply looking to reach peak performance. Sincerely, Ahmed Azhar, University of Adelaide
Lilian Clarke (5 Jun 2020)
All what I can say is thank you Andrew for your exceptional work with my son. I have to admit I was a bit skeptical in the beginning, as he had never been happy doing Math, let alone get good grades in this subject in his first 8 school years. In a matter of a few lessons, Andrew helped Robbie be convinced that Math could be understood and enjoyed, and finally mastered. Andrew has helped him increase his marks from nearly failing to 80%s and 90%s in two terms, his confidence is also much, much better than before. I couldn't believe Robbie was doing Andrew's homework by himself from the first lesson!! We are all very happy at home with this outcome.
My most sincere recommendation of Andrew's tutoring services to all parents and students.
