Dylan Bissell (Bachelor of Education: Early Childhood and Primary) is a highly devoted and passionate mathematical tutor that has spent
years continuing to develop the method in which he teaches. Dylan
can teach all age groups; primary school, high school, university and
lantite numeracy. Helping to reach your mathematical goals.
Dylans strong point and passion has always been Mathematics. This
has led him to pass the Lantite Numeracy test on his first attempt.
Dylan is confident he will be able to coach anyone who needs
tutoring prior to sitting their lantite test. His experience and
knowledge of the lantite test, will allow him to prepare his students
to achieve.
Dylan is currently an early childhood teacher and has been for three
years. As an early childhood teacher, one of the most important
responsibilities is developing and implementing a curriculum to assist
in meeting learning outcomes. Dylan has also been a tutor for over
three years where he has assisted students to achieve their learning
goals.


“We learn more by looking for the answer to a question and not
finding it than we do from learning the answer itself.” Lloyd


Dylan is a strong believer in the importance of working out problems
independently rather than having the answer given to you. This is
what his teaching strategy is based off. Ensuring students develop
the ability to work autonomously, and gain the skills to find
solutions.


Dylan is able to meet all your mathematical learning needs and build
confidence in the subject by offering a curriculum that is best suited
to the way that you learn. Dylan personalizes his education by using
the interests of his students as the backbone of how the learning is
created and delivering each session. Each session will teach to
develop the student’s strengths while minimising the students’ weaknesses. 

Dylan displays great interpersonal skills and will ensure
that the student/family is kept up to date with everything that occurs
with feedback from each session.


The curriculum that is delivered by Dylan is delivered with a
combination of gathering knowledge from a variety of different
reliable sources, collaborating while going through examples relating
to the chosen topic, working through a variety of different learning
opportunities to create further understanding, completing
homework in order to develop further and asking open ended
questions throughout to gather an understanding of how conclusions
are met.

Laura Denham is a passionate and experienced teacher who has been teaching Secondary School Mathematics for twelve years. She completed a Bachelor of Education (Secondary) / Bachelor of Arts at Deakin University with a minor in Mathematics, as well as a Masters of Numeracy at Melbourne University. Laura has taught from Year 7 all the way through to Year 12, including VCE General Mathematics 1&2, Mathematical Methods 1&2, and Further Mathematics 3&4. 

Whilst undertaking her Masters of Numeracy, Laura also taught Mathematics in an International School in Thailand, and in 2019 she was a VCAA assessor, assessing the Further Mathematics written exam.


As part of her teaching allotment in 2020, Laura undertook one-on-one and small group tutoring of mathematics as part of MYLNS, the Middle Years Literacy and Numeracy Support program. She is a patient and supportive teacher and tutor, who firmly believes in teaching for understanding rather than rote memorisation of formulae. This helps her students be able to work out problems independently, rather than have to rely on memorised facts.


Laura has detailed knowledge of current curricula, including the Victorian Curriculum and VCE Study Designs. She is able to tutor students in LANTITE Numeracy, as well as mathematics from Year 5 to 10, VCE Units 1&2 General Maths and Maths Methods, and VCE Units 3&4 Further Maths. She is able to cater for different learning styles and develop targeted teaching programs in order to get the best out of each student.

Anastasiia S. is a qualified secondary school Mathematics teacher. She completed a Bachelor of Science at University of Toronto, majoring in Mathematics and Masters of Teaching (Secondary Mathematics) at the University of New South Wales. Anastasiia has worked in high schools and several private learning centres, tutoring Mathematics from Year 1 all the way through to Year 12. She also has experience in tutoring mature-age students, TAFE students and pre-service teachers.

Anastasiia has passed the LANTITE test in 2019, on her first attempt. She is well aware of the test structure and effective test taking strategies that help to improve student performance. The Initial Teaching Program can be intense and the limited number of attempts given to pre-service teachers to pass the LANTITE test can be a very frustrating experience. However, with the appropriate amount of preparation and support, every pre-service teacher has an ability to overcome this challenge. Anastasiia can help pre-service teachers to identify the areas of improvement and create a personal learning plan that will help them to fill in knowledge gaps, gain more confidence and get ready for the test. By teaching students from different age groups and cultural backgrounds and with different learning difficulties, Anastasiia acknowledges that every learner needs an individual approach tailored to his/her unique learning needs. In her lessons, she incorporates scaffolding strategies and differentiates the tasks so that they are feasible for each student. Such a customised learning is proved to be more effective and beneficial.
