TUTORING

MATHS

Tutoring Waiheke covers all curriculum topics that students are expected to learn in the N.Z. school system. We cover Numeracy, Algebra, Geometry, Measure, Statistics, tables.

Primary students are coached in the NZ Numeracy program giving them skills to learn new concepts and become more engaged in class activities. Each week your child will do tables, a math concept, reinforcement of past learning and either geometry, measure, statistics, algebra, fractions, decimals, problem solving and a game.

For high school students we try to keep in time with school schedule enabling students to keep up with the current topics and concepts they are learning in class.

Tutoring Waiheke also caters for students who wish to excel in math, who want to be challenged or just love math. We can extend as far as they desire to go.

I consider times tables very important so we do times tables every week. But tables are tedious, so we use games as well.

Check out the sites below, support you child’s learning with a bit of fun. 5 minutes a day on a X tables game would be amazing!

OUR METHODS

At Tutoring Waiheke we follow the New Zealand Curriculum.  Tutoring is an intensive intervention, consisting of new learning, reinforcement of  learning from previous weeks and the school classroom. The weekly 1 hour 10 minutes sessions, consisting of one on one with teacher, activities on computer and worksheets, ensure  your child remains engaged and motivated. (We also eat cookies and have some fun!).

Learning is greatly improved in friendly safe places. The small group allows for individual learning preferences and styles to be catered for, shy students to be heard, distracted students to focus. It is also easier to learn the use of support tools such as speech to word. Students gain confidence and motivation as they progress through to success.
