Nivethan I

Hi! I'm Nivethan, a Primary School and Years 7-10 Maths, and VCE Maths Methods, Specialist Maths, and Accounting Tutor. The main component for success in maths is to create and understanding of the fundamental concepts of each topic, and once you have achieved this only then move on to practice questions to erase any doubts in the understanding.

ABOUT ME

I achieved a study score of 50 for Specialist Maths and a study score of 45 for Maths Methods (scaled). I am currently studying at the University of Melbourne studying a Bachelors of Science majoring in Maths and Statistics. I have achieved first class honours in my mathematics subjects at university and am maintaining a first class WAM as well.

Whilst many students find maths challenging or difficult, I believe it is because they are approaching the subject the wrong way. Many students and surprisingly many tutors believe that the key to a good grade in maths is to complete as many practice questions and exams as possible, and that this will best prepare you for the exam. Whilst there is some benefit in practice questions, this approach is not effective at all. The main component for success in maths is to create and understanding of the fundamental concepts of each topic, and once you have achieved this only then move on to practice questions to erase any doubts in the understanding.

During my sessions, I will explain the concepts of each topic to the student, ensuring that they understand the topic themselves to the point where they themselves are able to explain the concepts. Once they have reached a competent level of understanding we will go through practice questions from relevant exams and past papers. This is the most effective way to obtain the highest marks in these subjects.
