  • Which Maths course should I choose?

    The best Year 11 Maths course for you will depend on the requirements of future university courses. However, the three most popular courses are Maths Standard, Advanced Maths and Extension 1 Maths. When in doubt, choose a more difficult course with the option to drop down rather than choose an easier course and try to go up.

  • If I have additional questions after class, do I have to wait for the next class?

    No. Our high school Maths tutors offer free homework help. Students can either drop into the centre and get one-to-one support on the questions they’ve got, or they can send them in and organise Maths help online with video call help available for up to 15 minutes.

  • Can I change the Maths course later on?

    This depends on your school – each school will have its own rules regarding Year 11 Maths courses. Assuming a school allows movement then, yes, you can change courses.

    As a general rule, choose a slightly harder course and drop down – don’t choose an easy course and try to step up, it can be a bit overwhelming.

  • Do you provide additional study materials?

    Yes. In holiday times we have specialist revision courses for our maths tuition, with Maths help online or on-campus. This includes notes tailored for revision and/or specialist HSC presenters with a proven track record who will provide tips and tricks around HSC.

  • Which Maths course would be more beneficial for my future career?

    This will depend on the specific requirements of your chosen university course. As a general rule, most students should start by thinking about Advanced Maths and Extension 1 Maths. When in doubt, do at least Advanced Maths.

  • Is it better to enrol in on-campus classes than one-on-one classes for Maths?

    The answer to this depends on the student. For some students, Maths tuition online is more accessible, and therefore a good option. For others, on-campus options are more convenient. Our tutoring for Math is designed for flexibility and accessibility for all students.
