My child lacks confidence

Is Your Child Lacking Confidence?

I get a lot of kids who come to me that are obviously struggling in maths and they lack confidence. They’re quiet in class, they sit in front of the teacher in terms of their group work and they don’t take part that don’t give ideas. Students who are not confident in maths are not connecting with things they know in order to solve problems. In a group situation often the information or what they are actually looking at is not tailored directly to them.

What I look to do at EducateMaths is find where the student is working at and provide programs that are their next step learning. This way they can always connect with prior knowledge to build on the new learning that they’re expected to do.

When they start seeing that they are actually progressing that’s when the lights start to flicker a little bit and they get a little bit more confident in what they are doing because they are actually seeing the results.

They are getting success and thats what we look to build on at EducateMaths as we move through and show them over time what success looks like.

Hi. I’m Steve Cornelius

During my time as an educator with over 30+ years’ experience, I have been a classroom teacher, a Principal of three Schools and the Manager of Resource Teachers of Learning and Behaviour.

I work currently out of a Red Beach Primary School providing direct maths tutoring for students who need that extra learning to boost maths progress and confidence. I have been having a great deal of success in improving maths achievement levels for students. One of my independent on-line students (who does not see me directly), has progressed her maths achievement level nearly 3 years in 21 months and is now achieving above her Actual Age in Math. 

I am able to support students through ‘live video feed’ when they have a particular ‘struggle/frustration’ in math. Parents have found this very useful preventing many family math conflicts.

If I was to be asked what my biggest takeaway would be when teaching/tutoring students it would be:

“My biggest thrill is to see the smile on a student’s face when they have succeeded at something they thought was impossible.”
