Kenderdine Maths Tutoring has been providing maths and statistics tuition since 1995. Since then hundreds of secondary and tertiary students, mainly in the Southern Highlands of New South Wales, have received individual tuition for everything from one session to continuous assistance as the student proceeds through school.
Normally students attend for one hour per week and the content of each session is based on each student's needs. The aim is to revise previous work if required and to cover the material likely to be met in the following week at school/university.
A defining characteristic of Kenderdine Maths Tutoring is the use of multiple methods to explain concepts. At school, students are usually shown only one method and if the student doesn't understand then the same method is repeated. In contrast Kenderdine Maths Tutoring will try one of a possible number of alternative explanations. Interactive mathematical software is used to illustrate solutions.
Students need to be motivated in order to receive the most benefit from tuition. It has been found that students who lack motivation are wasting their time and money and the tutor's time.
Kenderdine Maths Tutoring has taught students from all local high schools and colleges, TAFE and a number of universities. Those students were mainly teenagers and young adults; however mature age students have also been assisted. University students have been undertaking studies in Mathematics, Computer Science, Engineering, Psychology, Commerce, Education and Nursing.
