It has been my experience that students in Years 7 and 8 can lack the maturity to appreciate the opportunity that tutoring provides. In such cases parents are not obtaining value for money. Therefore I am cautious when accepting students in those years.
However the students that do have the maturity usually benefit by strengthening their foundational mathematical ability for the remaining school years.
Students with a high level of ability may find that they are not sufficiently challenged by their schoolwork. In such cases I can develop a programme that both extends the coursework and also develops problem-solving skills using material on the borders of the curriculum.
