NCEA, A level, and Uni Maths tuition

Why do students look for maths tutors?

You're going to study maths during your primary and secondary education. You may also have maths courses in university if you choose such careers as informatics, engineering or, say, accounting. Maths will then stay important for years all throughout your life. Having a good level in maths can be extremely important if you need this subject for your NCEA exams. And then, mathematics is simply present in our everyday life when we go shopping, receive our wages, apply for a loan from a bank or plan your end-of-year holidays. Whatever level in maths you may have it's worth hiring a qualified tutor to catch up or to move ahead. Private tutoring can help students in a variety of ways. Some subjects, such as English, arts or history may require analytical skills and good deal of imagination. Maths, on the other hand, is about logic. A private tutor can help you get comfortable with maths pretty quickly, while teaching at your home or even online. A huge advantage of private tutoring is that you get one-to-one support, as opposed to sitting in a classroom with two dozens of other students. Maybe you've fallen behind because you missed an important explanation or you're just looking to improve your result or maybe you need to prepare for your NCEA exams. Lots of people aren't confident in maths, hiring a private maths tutor can get you back on the horse. Formulas you were once afraid of may turn out to be pretty simple in the end. And then training your math skills will improve your performance in other scientific subjects like physics and chemistry.

Maths tutors can boost your level in maths

There is a great difference between learning maths in class and one-to-one tutoring. It's beneficial in a variety of ways. A private maths tutor will know your weak points and strengths and understand exactly what kind of support you need for efficient teaching. They can help you grow more confident and clear up formulas so that they will seem obvious to you. Maths tutors can have a lot of experience in a certain area of specialisation or work at certain educational levels, such as primary or secondary education, NCEA exams or university. Even Cambridge students may struggle with maths and need a tutor. If you know what your difficulties are, you can look for a math tutor that suits you best in Auckland, Wellington or another city. Maths tutors can train you on particular topics and show you new ways to tackle problems. Students often seek help in the following areas:

  • Algebra
  • Calculus
  • Mental arithmetics
  • Geometry
  • Trigonometry
  • Probability
  • Equations
  • Functions

A private maths tutor will help you improve your skills in these areas without spending years on useless explanations. A qualified teacher knows when a student can move forward and when a review of previous lessons is needed. Sometimes not knowing one small detail can stop all further progress in mathematics. This is one of the goals of private teaching. You can let your maths tutor have a look at your textbooks and the exercises you've done in class so they can get an idea of where exactly you're at. You can also ask them math-related questions on other subjects like physics or chemistry and they might help you.

Another reason why students sometimes have trouble with mathematics are psychological blocks. At school students may have to solve complex maths problems on the board in front of everyone. This situation can be really intimidating. As a result, shy students may simply not have the opportunity to fulfil their full potential and advance more slowly. A private maths tutor can be an immediate solution to this difficulty. They can develop a more friendly relationship with the student and give them more confidence. Studying in a pleasant home environment face-to-face with the teacher or online will further reassure the student.

Tips on improving your maths level between classes

If you want to progress really quickly you can complement your private maths lessons by studying on your own. Here are some tips on how you could do that efficiently.

First of all, you need to practise a lot to gain experience. As you solve problems and apply formulas, you'll gradually get used to the math logic and they'll seem completely natural to you in the end. Mathematics is an exact science based on logic so maths problems and equations have only one possible solution. This is good news for those who want to practise maths alone because you'll be able to check your answers and be sure they are right.

When studying to improve your level in maths, you shouldn't avoid your weak points. Working on confusing topics may seem hard at the beginning but if you persevere and stay focused you'll end up mastering them perfectly and they may even become your strengths by the end of the year.

Mathematics and other scientific subjects like physics or chemistry require a lot of concentration. It would be better to study it in a calm distraction-free environment. You may want to switch off your phone and TV set for a moment and direct all your attention to the subject. Listening to music can be of help, as it will help you relax without distracting you. Search for "music to study" on Youtube to find some awesome tracks that will make it pleasant to study maths.

If you have trouble with abstract equations, try to apply them to real life, imagine real things behind the numbers. It will help you link maths with pictures and solve the problems more easily.

Using these tips in addition to private classes with a tutor will help you boost your maths skills in no time and improve your performance in science in general.
