Home Tutoring

Having your Maths Tutor come to your own home (or other location that suits you) in Sydney not only makes life much more convenient for busy mums and dads, it creates a much more comfortable learning environment.

Having other students in the maths class creates distractions. Moreover, when students may be embarrassed about struggling to understand something, they may be more reluctant to ask for as much assistance as they really need if their peers are observing. In addition to preventing them from receiving adequate assistance, the pressure of a competitive classroom environment (such as tuition centres in Sydney) can increase stress hormones in the brain which affect memory, concentration and learning capacity. In a one-on-one environment in the home however where the child knows that they do not have to fear that any weaknesses will be on display to their peers, it eliminates the barrier of fear and creates a nurturing learning environment free of pressure and distractions.

Studies also show that stress hormones which impair cognitive function are lower in familiar environments where the student feels more comfortable. There is no environment more familiar than the home. (If the home environment can be stressful however, an alternative location can be negotiated with your Sydney Maths Tutor.)

Moreover, with your Maths Tutor in your own home, you are always within earshot and are better placed to know what is going on. This way you can also discuss your child’s tuition with your tutor after every lesson.

The benefits of your Maths Tutor coming to your home:

  • Most convenient. Save time and travel expense.
  • No distractions caused by other students in a class
  • No stress of a competitive peer pressure environment.
  • Familiar, comfortable environment enhances learning capacity.
