With great passion for Mathematics and Education, and coming from a family of Engineers and Teachers, I combine the best of both worlds to provide the best explanations, strategies and overall educational support in Adelaide. The objective with all my students is to help them progress rapidly and improve their results consistently; increases of 20-30% within 2 weeks of starting lessons are not uncommon among them. *Each of my students' outcomes is MY OWN TOP PRIORITY*. With over 9 years of experience and over 300 1-on-1 past students, I am very confident with different attitudes and learning styles, and not only explain the topics in a fully comprehensible, tried-and-tested step-by-step way, but make sure discipline, focus, self-assurance and work ethic improve as well.
*ACHIEVING EXCELLENCE IS WITHIN THE REACH OF EVERY STUDENT*
My approach goes well beyond tutoring, I coach and mentor my students paying close attention to all aspects of their education and personal growth (study material, motivation, habits) so they become consistently more accomplishment-minded. Beyond subject content, thorough assessment and constructive feedback of study and personal habits are provided continuously, lesson by lesson, with strong emphasis on discipline, focus, hard work and self confidence, so they become better, more fulfilled and successful in Math *and their other subjects too*, a decisive factor particularly in years 11 and 12.
Furthermore, I do understand the economic and time investment involved, and offer a completely personalised study plan tailored to the student's needs. Regular 2 hs/week of lessons results in at least a consistent B plus, and in most instances A. Having lived, studied and worked in three continents (North and South America, Europe and Australia), work experience in telecom and mining companies and postgraduate studies in the UK and USA allow me to offer a more well-rounded educational experience.
*****Highlights of my work*****
Personal commitment to unlocking my students' potential. I greatly value your trust and make sure both students and parents are very happy with the outcomes.
Time & stress management; study, goal setting and test/exam taking skills are evaluated from the start. *This is key in promoting improvement in Math and all other subjects*
As I teach most topics in the curriculum across all years from 5 to 12 up to undergraduate level on a very frequent (weekly to nearly daily) basis, I know the most commonly tested questions and make sure to prioritise them.
All questions are always welcomed and all students are treated with great encouragement, high expectation, attention and respect.
Students are continuously encouraged to achieve higher proficiency levels, we move swiftly onto more advanced material as soon as they seem confident. A significant number of them are in the IB programme, their schools' top Math groups or ahead 1, 2 years with respect to their peers.
Together with understanding the principles and academic improvement, special emphasis on confidence, enjoying the discovery and learning process, and realising how simple yet very beautiful and rewarding Math can be!
*WE ARE ALL MUCH MORE CAPABLE AND STRONGER THAN WHAT WE MAY THINK WE ARE*

Victor Andrew's Feedback
|Total Amount Of Feedback:||3|
|Total Positive Feedback:|
He has helped my son achieved excellent results in just one term, his marks have increased over 30% and he has started getting the best results in his class.
Andrew takes his time when explaining concepts and methods.
He recognises where the knowledge deficit is and provides support appropriately.
I would recommend Andrew to any high school students requiring assistance in Maths or to any students wanting to extend their knowledge base especially in Mathematics.
Thank you Andrew for your patience in teaching my son. He has a much positive attitude to learning, reaping great outcomes of your time spent with him.
