Description

This course will take you from understanding what a parabola really means to being able to draw one in basically any form!

It is so simple and so visual: Animations and visual effects that bring these concepts alive. Maths will never be the same again.


Why do students struggle in Maths?

Classes move so fast and cover so many topics that it's easy for them to miss a few key concepts.

Suddenly, Maths is no longer a logical subject but a painful experience where they try to remember how to answer questions rather than actually understanding the content.


How can we help?

We simplify Methods so that they understand the fundamentals of what they are studying and really understand what the question is asking rather than hoping that they remember how to answer it.

Practice is key but there is no point spending hundreds of hours on questions if they don't really know what they are doing: as they simply won't get the results they deserve.

The Solution

Our tutorials contain every major concept in the topic and are full of animations and visual effects and only contain simple, non-technical explanations. They are designed to give students an intuitive understanding of the subject which in turn increases concentration and makes VCE a lot less stressful for everyone.

Who is the target audience?
  • Suitable for anyone of all ages!
  • For year 8 students and above

Degrees in Mathematics/Astrophysics, Philosophy and Classics

A Monash University Graduate with degrees in Mathematics/Astrophysics, Philosophy and Classics who specialises in teaching Year 12 VCE Maths Methods.

I have trained and educated people all around the globe for many years and concluded that there must be a way to teach Maths other than just with equations and practise.

After spending thousands of hours researching the terminology, symbols and concepts of Mathematics, it became clear that it could be taught much more intuitively.

From that point, I started teaching Mathematics almost like it was a Humanities subject: defining all the symbols and terminology, providing simple explanations and using lots of pictures and animations. Students began to understand Maths using common sense instead of complex proofs because they could visualise the concepts rather than just accept them.

I often found that if students were taught the basics then they would figure out the more complex ideas all by themselves. They learnt things quicker, became less stressed and could concentrate on their school work more effectively.

With the aid of a visual designer, an IT professional and a couple of videography experts, I spent next six months researching and developing the most effective way to teach students online. The culmination of all this work: easy to understand, online tutorials full of animations and visual effects that will revolutionise the way students learn Maths.
