Maths Lessons in Johannesburg

If you are looking for a mathematics tutor in Johannesburg, you will have no problem finding one.

Not only is it the largest city in South Africa, it is also the economic capital of the country. Whether you are attending school or investing in your tertiary education in Johannesburg, it is a city full of go-getters, professionals and entrepreneurs.

The Benefits of a Mathematics Tutor

Not only is an understanding of maths a basic life skill that will always be used in our daily lives, but as a curriculum it is a complex subject. Whether you are at primary school or high school, a university student or graduate seeking a job, a mathematics tutor could quite simply, change your life.

Unfortunately, when we don’t have the basic foundations of maths in place during our early childhood development, it can create stumbling blocks throughout our school journey. Maths lessons can be agonising to the student who at some point in their progress simply didn’t grasp a key concept and got left behind. This often happens when children are being taught in large groups or don’t connect with the teacher with whom they have been allocated. This is where individual, one-on-one tuition with a mathematics tutor of your choice can make all the difference. Not only is academic progress almost guaranteed, but the emotional wellbeing of the student can be turned around as a result of a boost in self-confidence.

Knowing your strengths and weaknesses in the complex subject of maths, as well having a clear outline of what you want to achieve, will guide your mathematics tutor to hone in on the areas in which you are struggling. 

Maths is such an important subject, it is often critical to factor into the decision making that goes into choosing a future career path. In fact, many astute students choose to supplement their schooling with extra maths tuition throughout their high school and university careers.

For those who are passionate and gifted in mathematics, the right tutor who knows exactly how to develop a keen young mind, will also be able to provide valuable career guidance and mentorship. These are just some of the reasons why becoming a mathematics tutor is so much more than just a job, it is a calling.

Maths as a Career

Achieving good maths results, regardless of your career choice is never wasted. Employers and course selectors at tertiary institutions are well aware that proficiency in maths demonstrates logical, analytical thinking and is a valued attribute in the marketplace.

If speaking the complex language of maths is a passion, your mathematics tutor will certainly be able to guide you in terms of the kinds of degree courses available to you. 

Here are some of the careers that require a high level of mathematical acumen:

  • Actuarial analyst
  • Statistician
  • Chartered Accountant
  • Engineer
  • Meteorologist
  • Systems developer
  • Quantity Surveyor

Mathematics graduates are highly employable. Amongst the top jobs available are financial advisors, certified accountants, programmers, software developers and actuaries.

Find the Right Mathematics Tutor for You

If there is one thing in life truly worth investing in, it is education. Not everyone has the privilege of attending expensive schools, prestigious universities or extra maths lessons, but fortunately there really are options for every budget.

If you are a gifted maths student who really wants to go far in your academic career, find a mathematics tutor that is going to challenge you. There are many tertiary institutions in Gauteng who employ brilliant lecturers who offer private tuition part time. The University of Johannesburg, University of Pretoria, Wits University and Tshwane University of Technology are all teeming with academic talent skilled at developing the young analytical mind.

Many of these tutors are found on the Superprof platform where you can search by location and easily note whether their fees are within your budget. If face-to-face tuition is your preference you could search for a tutor near to your home or school which will save you on both time and travel.

If you do find the perfect tutor but they happen to be located far from you, don’t despair, if you feel comfortable with online tuition, all you need is an internet connection and webcam. Simply download Zoom, Skype or Google Meet and it could be very much like having your tutor in the room with you. In fact, using any of this technology today literally opens up the entire world. Perhaps you will find your ideal tutor in London or Glasgow!

Just remember to choose a mathematics tutor suited to the level of input you require. If you are in Grade 11, it is unlikely that you need a university professor. Perhaps you need a university student or even a peer your own age who is simply brilliant at maths. 

Understanding Maths is a Life Skill

Whatever your reason for extra maths lessons, remember that developing your maths capability is something you will never regret. Not only is maths a way of thinking, but it an important life skill that is continuously used in daily life.

Having a level of mathematics skill could contribute to your financial freedom as an adult. To have the tools to manage your family budget, plan for your future and stay out of debt is no mean feat.

Maths has the ability to open up the world in so many areas. It may seem crazy, but perhaps one day in the future you will be completing a sewing or carpentry project, or calculating the distance of a trip and you will look back and be grateful that you found that mathematics tutor in Johannesburg!

There’s no doubt, maths is one of those subjects where investing time, focus and energy will certainly pay off, regardless of what path you take in life.
