Maths Tutors

There’s no other subject at school quite like Maths. It can bring all sorts of emotions to the fore that you don’t find in other subjects. Children often need extra help with maths due to its abstract nature and varying learning styles.

“Children don’t hate math. What they hate is being confused, intimidated, and embarrassed by math.”

Larry Martinek

Concepts like fractions and algebra can be challenging to grasp without personalised guidance. Additionally, foundational skills like numeracy and problem-solving require consistent practice and reinforcement. Tailored support facilitates understanding, confidence, and long-term academic success.

Extra math lessons provide crucial support for students by offering personalised guidance, additional practice, and reinforcement of concepts. These sessions address individual learning needs, strengthen understanding, and build confidence in tackling mathematical challenges. With focused attention and supplementary instruction, students can overcome obstacles, excel academically, and develop a lifelong appreciation for mathematics.

Maths tutoring provides:

  • Individualised help where the relationship between child and tutor is key

  • A safe place to ask questions without feeling embarrassed

  • The opportunity to go back to basics and relearn concepts from the ground up to ensure good math’s foundations

  • Improved test scores which leads to increased confidence

  • Help with studying by practice past papers and learning test techniques

Why do children struggle with Maths at school?

  • Maths is not automatic
  • It can be considered boring

  • Students often miss key understanding of concepts

  • Parts of Math’s seem irrelevant to real life

Why do we need to learn Maths at school?

  • Maths helps with life skills

  • Maths develops problem solving skills

  • Maths develops critical thinking skills

  • Maths develops logical thinking

Tailored support facilitates understanding, confidence, and long-term academic success.

Testimonials

From our students and teachers

Kirsty has tutored my daughter for the last few years. She is kind and patient. Her knowledge of Math’s concepts is excellent. This combined with her gentle nature takes away any potential fear of Math’s. Kirsty is the perfect Math’s tutor!

Parent Grade 10 Student (Trinityhouse Randpark Ridge),

Math’s tutoring acts as a supplement to classroom learning. It provides an opportunity for my learners to review and reinforce the material covered during class and allows them to gain a more comprehensive understanding of the concepts they may find challenging.

Boitumelo Mapanyane, Teacher (Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Communication Sciences),
I enjoy tutoring Math because it is one of the subjects that is perceived as difficult, which is not true. It just needs a basic understanding of the concepts. I enjoy helping my students discover their ability to tackle the subject, the “aha” moments when they finally understand a concept and can answer questions on it. Above else, I enjoy tutoring Math’s because there’s more than one way to teach or explain a concept to different learners of different learning styles.
Martha Sesinyi, Teacher (Bachelor of Education Senior Phase and FET Student),

What makes Boity stand out from all the other tutors I’ve had is that she’s very attentive. She genuinely cares about whether you understood what she’s saying or not. You feel so important when you’re with her, because she treats you like you’re her number one priority. There’s never been a time where I feel like I’m frustrating her or annoying her when it takes me a while to understand the concept. She’s very patient and all she wants is to see you do your best, which I appreciate so much.
