FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS’s On Vedic Maths
What school years do you teach?
We have students from year 3 to year 12. Within this range, the full spectrum of capability is covered.
What abilities do you cater for?
Vedic Maths Forum Australia isn’t just for students who aren’t performing well in maths; we also work with high achievers. Whatever level your child is at, our individualised approach to learning needs will bring out their true potential.
How much it cost for different school year?
We recommend that students take at least 12 hrs of Maths Tutroing per month that they can arrange anytime during the calender month. Fees for school year 3 to 6 is AUD 100/- per month, for school year 7 to 9 is AUD 150/- per month and year 10 to 12 is AUD 200/- per month. If you would like to enrol for less than 12 hrs per month then contact us for pricing.
What are the lesson times?
We try to be flexible and accommodating, because your child might have other after-school activities that can’t be shifted. Our teacher are available from Monday to Saturday anytime convenient to your child to run a series of one-hour tutoring sessions. Let us know the days and times that work best for you and we will arrange the days and time that suits your needs.
What happens if my child is sick and can’t make it?
Let us know as soon as possible. We’ll cancel your child’s tutoring session for that day and reschedule a make-up session for that week/month.
Does tutoring work?
In our 15-years experience, yes it does. Our teaching systems have been carefully developed to produce results – both in skill and confidence levels.
Is it all done through computers?
Yes. We teach students around Australia using latest technology i.e. skype and virtual classroom. Student can freely interact with teacher in virtual classroom. You can take our free demo class to see how our system works and provide a better solution for maths tutoring for your child at comfort of your own home. Each tutoring session includes one-on-one live online teaching with the tutor. Any new concept is explained and taught and your child will cement learning with practice using different exercises.
Is there homework?
Yes there’s homework, although it’s not time consuming. Homework sheets match the topic your child is working on and help new facts and skills to move from short-term memory to long-term memory. For best results, we recommend you encourage your child to complete homework sheets.
What are the main 5 reasons that tutoring is required?
- A lack in confidence – often coupled with a pessemistic, defeatist and resigned attitude.
- Lack of orgnised study habits. (e.g. misreading questions, silly mistakes, no planning.)
- Lack of attention in class and not making the most of class time – e.g. not taking notes.
- No concept of learning strategy or not knowing how to study efficiently.
- Unmotivated – doesn’t care enough about the outcome.
Is your tutoring approach specifically tailored for each student?
Yes, this is the benefit of one-on-one private tutoring. The tutor’s we engage appreciate that students learn in a wide variety of ways and their approach is always adjusted to your child’s specific needs. Tutors adapt to their learning style and requirements. You can see this from the very first trial tutorial which is offered for free.
Is a free trial available?
Yes, it is. We offer a free trial class at no cost. This first tutorial is invaluable in understanding your needs and the specific challenges your child is experiencing. The tutor will consider gaps in knowledge, goals and learning strategies. Most importantly this is an opportunity to make sure that the tutor is a good match for your child. If they are not we can happily organise a trial with another tutor.
