About Me

For more than 23 years I've had the honour to work with and help hundreds of students catch up, love maths and EXCEL!

It doesn't matter how LOW your child's grades are. They will soon be a thing of the past.

Better habits, better self-esteem and better maths grades start TODAY!

With the right advice, guidance and direction, they WILL improve, become BETTER learners and enjoy the journey.

Everyone can reach their full potential and become great at maths.

I have taught students who attended government schools, independent and international schools.

I have taught gifted and talented students and helped others who were focussed on exam preparation and Selective School / University entrance.

I have yet to encounter anyone who was truly a lost cause. Regardless of whether they had given up, were failing maths or struggling...every one of my students has made progress and it has been a great joy to work with them.

I hope you're sensing my passion because teaching maths is not my job....it's my passion... and this passion is contagious.

There is nothing more exciting than reviving a smoldering wick, imparting hope and watching learners thrive as they discover "I CAN do anything!"

I'll help your child identify and acknowledge their weaknesses, embrace their strengths and to learn how to turn their stumbling stones into stepping stones. They'll learn how to learn and become independent learners. They'll learn to think deeply about simple things and to become enquirers and discoverers.

We'll plug the holes, fill the leaks and make sure your child stops falling behind. We'll work together to make maths easy, practical and FUN!

Even better, we'll not only catch up but get ahead!

This is not just sales talk. It is who I am and I invite you to a free 15 min chat to discuss your child's needs and to see how we can work together for their success in 2019 and beyond!

---------- BENEFITS OF ONLINE TUTORING ----------
I believe that online tuition can be more engaging, faster, easier and beneficial than traditional face to face tutoring.

Here are a few reasons why:

23 years of resources at my fingertips
I’ve accumulated lots of resources over the past 23 years and I have them all at my fingertips when teaching online. No more lost time searching through paperwork. It’s all digital and ready for access to help consolidate understanding just at the right time.

The BEST TUTORS at your door
Have you heard this before: "Sorry I don't travel to your area" or "Sorry, I only come to your area on such and such a day and time"? It doesn’t matter where you live, you can now access the best tutors. You can also schedule lessons at times that suit YOU because there are no traffic jams to consider and your tutor doesn’t need to teach multiple students in the same area to make it worth his while.

FUN and Engaging
The interactive, online whiteboard is FUN and incredibly ENGAGING. It’s an infinite whiteboard space. There is no need to erase and lose important information just because you've run out of room. With our infinite whiteboard we just start a new page and keep moving. We can copy and paste images, pdf’s, markup exam papers, difficult questions, draw diagrams and graphs, insert links and much more. At the end of each I can export a copy of all the whiteboard pages to .pdf to be used as revision notes and exam preparation.

LIVE video / audio chat
The video chat is live and simultaneous. It’s just like me sitting next to your child. The live video feed overlays the whiteboard so we can see each other as we write. For those who aren’t comfortable with video chat, audio only can be selected when booking the lesson.

More teaching gets done in less time
A lot of time gets lost with face to face tutoring. Passing books back and forth and waiting for a student to finish before work can be marked is annoying and frustrating. Students can feel the pressure of a teacher breathing down their neck as they wait for them to finish. It's uncomfortable and unnecessary. There is no more leaning over a student's shoulder or awkwardly trying to read upside down!

The interactive whiteboard has true two way functionality so that we can both write on the board simultaneously in real time. While my student is answering a question I can be commenting on their work. It's an incredible experience.

---------- LESSON FEES ----------
Year 10 or below : $88.00 per hour (inc. gst)
Year 11 : $99 per hour (inc. gst)
Year 12 : $110 per hour (inc. gst)

What's included in the lesson fee?
~ online teaching, lesson preparation, exam guidance + preparation, regular parent-teacher updates, assistance with school homework, online maths activities + more...

*A tax invoice will be provided for all lessons


---------- LIMITED PLACES ----------
I teach students of all abilities and backgrounds without prejudice. However, time is limited so I choose to give preference to students who are determined to improve, desperately need help, have solid family support and encouragement and who I believe will benefit the most from my intervention and support.


---------- WHY SHOULD I TUTOR YOUR CHILD? ----------
There are literally hundreds of tutors to choose from. Who should you choose? There are many factors to weigh up. Experience, qualifications, costs, location etc. Many parents choose on price alone. This is an important factor. However, I believe it is wiser to compare the overall cost of tuition. For example, if tutor A charges double the hourly rate but helps your child get to their destination three times faster, wouldn't you be ecstatic? Definitely! You're way in front. Or if tutor A helps your child build confidence, learn how to study and revise and develop good habits that promote lifelong learning and success in other subjects, won't you be over the moon? You'll be even further in front. You don't have the time or money to try each tutor.

That's why I invite you to try my services. I know that I can help your child progress faster in the shortest possible time and still have them smiling and laughing at the end of the day. I've done it hundreds and hundreds of times before and maths is about repeating tried and true processes that work.

For me, teaching is not just a job. It's my passion and my life. It's what I do. My passion is contagious and soon your child will be just as passionate about maths as I am!

As William Butler Yeats said: "Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire."

Let's put an end to bad school reports and start lighting those fires!

Best regards,
Steve

Subject

The lessons are ONLINE, highly engaging and in the convenience of your home (see below why ONLINE tutoring can be more effective than face to face).

We'll have a live video / audio chat and use an interactive whiteboard where we can both write simultaneously. All lesson notes are sent to you in .pdf format for later revision.

I put together personalised maths training programs for each individual student that is specific to their ability and class level.

Every student is different so whether the initial plan is to catch up or get ahead, we'll sit down and work out a strategy.

We'll start off with an assessment to find your child's strengths and weaknesses. I'll review their past school reports and exams and help identify areas to work on.

Each lesson is prepared in advance and I'll also help them with school homework problems and exam preparation. If you're keen and have home support I'll also prepare extra practice activities to complete during the week.

1-1 Tutoring fees for live, interactive online lessons (including gst)*:
Years 1 - 10 : $88 (inc. gst)
Year 11 : $99 (inc.gst)
Year 12 : $110 (inc. gst)

~ lesson fees include individualised lesson preparation, monitoring of school progress, exam preparation, monitoring of progress and strengths and weaknesses, homework preparation and more...

*You will be provided with a tax invoice for all lessons and include GST.

BENEFITS OF ONLINE TUTORING
I believe that online tuition is faster, easier, and more beneficial than traditional face to face tutoring.

Here are 5 reasons why:

1. 22 years of resources at my fingertips
I’ve accumulated lots of resources over the past 22 years. It would be impossible to bring them all to my student’s home but I do have them at my fingertips when teaching online. No more lost time searching through paperwork. It’s all digital and ready to access to help consolidate understanding just at the right time.

2. The BEST TUTORS at your door

3. FUN and Engaging
The interactive, online whiteboard is FUN and incredibly ENGAGING
It’s an infinite whiteboard space. No need to erase, just start a new page and continue. We can copy and paste images, pdf’s, markup exam papers, difficult questions, draw diagrams, insert links and much more. AND we can export to .pdf after the lesson for a permanent record that can be reviewed for consolidation.

4. LIVE video / audio chat
The video chat is live and simultaneous. It’s just like me being in the same room. The video overlays the whiteboard so we can see each other as we write. For those who aren’t comfortable with video chat, audio only can be selected when booking the lesson.

5. More teaching in less time
A lot of time gets lost with face to face tutoring. Passing books back and forth and waiting for a student to finish before work can be marked is a thing of the past with online learning.
