Mathematics Tuition From Afar   From time to time, many children struggle with aspects of mathematics. For their parents, finding a tutor for their child can provide a short- or long-term solution to the challenges of learning mathematics.  I offer individual or small group tuition for mathematics, in the comfort of your own home via online technologies.  You can arrange for your child to receive regular tuition, or one-off sessions to assist with those difficult patches in their mathematics education.
I am a university mathematics lecturer with 15 years’ secondary mathematics teaching experience in New Zealand. All enquiries will be answered. Please contact to discuss your options.
