Programme and Costs

The three service deliveries of EducateMaths, meet the needs of not only the students but also busy parents; Direct 1 hr sessions, Skype video 1 hr sessions and Online Independent.

The programs I use are the best I have found to grow student achievement levels and confidence in Math.

Maths Whizz is designed for students up to 13 years of age, however, it is also ideal for students older than 13 years who have gaps in their maths knowledge.

LiveWireLearning is for students who are achieving at their expected age level in Maths or above. The program is more formal than Maths Whizz. Students work their way through the curriculum areas informing them whether they are achieving the standard or above (displaying Achieved, Merit or Excellence).

Students can enrol in these two programs, independent of EducateMaths.
HOWEVER – Parents of my students, have found that with my teaching knowledge and experience, I am the best person to help their child when their child gets stuck on a maths concept, or the best person to advise their child – what they should study next to help them achieve at school. Some parents have told me that they are more than happy for me to take over their ‘parent maths help’ role at home and that they no longer have arguments about maths at home.

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.”
