At ZED Tuition, we endeavour to provide consistency in our approach, whether in individual or group lessons. Our focus is always on developing students’ skills to interpret and understand content, so they can effectively apply their knowledge. ZED Tuition’s programs are designed around this focus, and are implemented in conjunction with regular, consistent and effective feedback – the cornerstone of ZED Tuition’s philosophy.


In Mathematics Advanced, we offer tuition in the following formats:

  • Group (2-10 students)
    • 2-hour lesson per week
    • 10 lessons per school term
    • See below for lesson program.

ZED Tuition’s Mathematics Advanced courses intend to guide their students towards achievement of the following success criteria as adapted from the New South Wales Education Standards Authority (NESA):
– Demonstration of mathematical skills and knowledge;
– Demonstration of multi-step reasoning, justification, modelling and problem-solving strategies to evaluate mathematical problems in familiar and unfamiliar contexts;
– Effective and sophisticated communication of mathematical language both numerically and diagrammatically in a range of contexts.

STUDENT FEEDBACK PORTFOLIO

In staying true to our philosophy on the importance of effective feedback for student academic progression, ZED Tuition provides each student with their own Feedback Portfolio, which can be accessed by parents and guardians throughout the term. The Student Feedback Portfolio is an important communication tool between ZED and parents/guardians to maintain transparency regarding their child’s performance. Contained in the student Feedback Portfolio is:


  • Copies of weekly assessment tasks and results
  • Copies of pre and post-term assessment tasks
  • Weekly Participation Report that monitors in-class and homework completion
  • End of Term Report.

This Feedback Portfolio is provided free of charge to all students enrolled in a term course.
