Course Description

**April 2016 update** The course has been redesigned from scratch with 2 more hours of material. Hope you guys enjoy!

Over a 1000 students and counting with some great reviews already. See what some of my students have to say..

"Nice course structure. Additional diagrams drawn by the instructor make the material easier to understand. Option to type notes while watching the video is very convenient. Delivery of content is excellent and well paced which makes it easy to follow. Explanations are visually clear and the instructor does a good job of making his delivery engaging with a positive tone. He seems to know his stuff. Would highly recommend"

"I really enjoyed this course. Everything was well presented and explained at just the right pace. If you need to brush up on basic maths skills, this is a great course to boost your confidence. Thanks Adi!"

Welcome to Learn basic high school maths the easy way. After teaching maths to students for a better part of the decade, one thing that I've come to understand is how difficult a transition from primary school to high school can be for students.

Have you ever wondered how some students are so far ahead in their learning?

Are they all born Maths geniuses? Definitely not. It's because they have a really firm understanding of the fundamentals which allows them to progress a lot quicker when it comes to the more challenging topics, since every topic needs you to have a good base.

How will this course help you?

Every topic that I cover in this course will come up in some form in years to come. I go through every single topic in a step by step form so it's really easy for you to follow along. Not convinced? Then I suggest you check out the previews before you decide to enroll, to make sure my teaching style is easy to follow, I am very confident that it is. To go a step further, Udemy's 30-day money back guarantee should also make you feel at ease.

Are you having a tough time keeping up in Maths at school? Do you think Algebra is just the worst or maybe indices is your green kryptonite?

Then let me be your personal guide and teach you these topics in a way that will make you wonder why your teachers didn't just explain it to you like that. This course will not only help you catch up but also help you get ahead; if of course, you put in the required effort. I go through each chapter doing questions step by step using simple language.

Something missing in the course?

If you find I haven't covered a topic that you need at this level, let me know on the discussion board and I'll be happy to add it in :)

**BONUS** I've provided worksheets (with answers) at the end of every chapter to test your knowledge from the lectures.

I can guarantee that you'll be miles ahead of the competition if you take this course seriously and best part about knowing it all is - you can teach others as well. When you're willing to spend upwards of $50 an hour for a private tutor, it seems like a no brainer to at least give this a go, so that you have access to your very own private tutor any time you wish.

I'm good with messages and emails so if you have questions, make sure to get in touch with me. And furthermore, I want you guys to make full use of the discussion board because one of the best ways to learn is by sharing your knowledge with others. Thanks guys, really hope you enjoy.

What are the requirements?

  • Be proactive in your approach to learning

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Extensive knowledge of topics like algebra, indices, fractions etc.
  • Ability to tackle the much feared worded problems and other complex problems easily
  • Confidence to take on Maths in higher grades because your understanding is now at a superior level

What is the target audience?

  • Primary/Elementary school students transitioning to high school and looking to get ahead
  • High school students who're having trouble keeping up
  • Parents who need a refresher so you can better help your kids at home
  • NOT for students that already have a firm understanding of topics like Algebra, fractions etc. (check course curriculum) as this will be too basic for you

What you get with this course?

Not for you? No problem.

Instructor Biography

Chanda Academy, Education provider

Hi guys, my name is Adi Chanda. I've been teaching maths for almost 10 years now to students of all ages. My experience has given me some great insights on what works for students and what doesn't. After seeing a number of students struggle with basic high school maths, I decided to upload these step by step instructional videos that take you through some of the basic maths topics.

I decided to create the 'Chanda Academy', with the hopes of one day providing access to these videos to people all around the world, who don't have access to quality education today. I want to harness the power of the internet and bring these courses to anyone and everyone so that there can be more empowered adults in the world going forward.

As for the videos themselves, I only employ methods that have been tried and tested over the years so I'm confident that these will be an invaluable tool for anyone looking for that leg up in their maths knowledge. I have plans to grow the library of videos on Chanda Academy by collaborating with experts in other fields like Science, History etc. in the future. I want it to be a one-stop shop for students worldwide. 

Personally, I love teaching Maths to students of all ages so I couldn't think of a better way to make an impact on a global scale. I want to continuously create great resources for you guys, so please feel free to provide any suggestions you may have. I'm going to make up a ton of courses across a wide variety of topics at all levels. If there are specific topics you'd like me to cover definitely let me know.

What are my qualifications?

I have an Electrical Engineering degree and work as a technical product manager in a leading telco company here in Melbourne, Australia, making maths a vital part of my everyday life. I fell into teaching almost accidentally when I was 18; I loved it so much that I decided to start doing it more professionally and have been tutoring ever since. I've had some really great successes over the years but I was dissatisfied with only being able to reach students locally. Then I heard about Udemy...and well as they say the rest is history :)

I love hearing from you guys so please don't be shy and send me a message with whatever's on your mind...doesn't even have to be Maths related :)
