Do I need a Mathematics Tutor?

This question often comes up in family discussions, for a range of reasons. If it does arise, the reasons behind the question would be the best guide to an appropriate response for individual circumstances.

Students who have experienced interruption to their learning due to illness, subject change or relocation may need some extra assistance to get their learning back on track. Perhaps a renewed sense of purpose and determination to improve is linked to a need for extra support. Whatever the background, a first consideration might be the range of resources that are available at St Peters to support success in the learning journey.

  • Classroom teacher – as the need arises;
  • Academic support – weekly tutorials; or
  • Private tutoring service.

The Mathematics department offer free voluntary tutorials across Years 7 - 12. Students can check tutorial schedules on FireFly for times and locations and attend as needed. View Mathematics Tutoring Timetable in Firefly

Please note: students are expected to bring specific questions or areas of concerns. These sessions are student orientated and will not operate as a teacher-lead class.
