##### Understanding

- Step 1. Theory Developing a thorough understanding of concepts is the first step to mastering Maths. Learn from Matrix Theory Books that are carefully structured to help you understand even the most complex stuff!
- Step 2. Application Memorising formulas will only get you so far. Consolidate your understanding by learning how to apply concepts and techniques to solve problems.
- Step 3. Examples Work through examples that will actually be in your exam. You'll learn how to present your solution for maximum marks in exams.
##### Exam Skills (50% of Course Time)

- Step 4. Concept Checks Learn the most efficient problem solving techniques with different types of exam-style questions.
- Step 5. Workbook Practice sharpening your skills with hundreds of exam-style questions. It's important to keep practising as this is the only way to find the right balance between speed and accuracy.
- Step 6. Quiz and Feedback Weekly quizzes and feedback provide you with opportunities to identify your gaps and address them ASAP.
- Step 7. Topic Working under exam conditions will boost your confidence for the real thing. Learn from your mistakes and fill your gaps so you are continually improving.

## Teachers |
Vast classroom teaching experience, HSC and/or university teaching experience with an ability to explain concepts clearly |
Have little or no actual teaching experience, cannot explain difficult concepts in a manner that students can understand | |

## Program |
Teaching program that covers the NSW board of studies syllabus. Structured learning system that allows students to develop sound study habits every week |
Most private tutors and other tuition centres do not follow a set structure; rather they have an ad-hoc approach without considering timing and outcomes | |

## Resources |
A full set of resources written by academics and education researchers. Online access to Supplementary exam papers / texts with top responses. |
Only address content that students raise, use generic textbooks. | |

## Assessments |
Short quizzes and topic tests held under strict exam conditions to ensure students have a solid understanding of the subject |
No exam style quizzes and test that assess the student’s weaknesses, hence not being able to identifying their learning needs | |

## Reporting |
Weekly tracking of Grades, Quiz and Topic Test results so student and parents can monitor their progress. |
No measured tracking process so they cannot tell if the student is struggling or improving. | |

## Learning Management System |
Share information, academic resources and advice with classmates from over 220 schools. |
Do not have the library of resources or past exams that can help students excel | |

## One-to-One Workshops |
Free workshops to target individual learning needs |
No additional support outside the lesson. |
