Free maths tutoring for year 7, 8 and 9 students

Year 7, 8 and 9 students are invited to level up their maths skills with the help of a free online tutor, through the Learning+ program.

The program provides students with one-to-one online tutoring for 30 minutes, twice a week for 10 weeks.

Tutors are qualified teachers with experience teaching maths in the Australian Curriculum. They are committed to understanding each student’s individual needs and facilitating tailored sessions.

The sessions are via Microsoft Teams, so your child can participate at home. You can nominate times for tutoring which best suit your home routine.

This opportunity is available as our school nominated to participate in the Department for Education’s Learning+ program and is free of charge to participants.
