Why Get a Private Maths Tutor in Pietermaritzburg?

“I’m not a math tutor,” I said. I don’t feel the need to check your work.” - Lemony Snicket


The abovementioned quote from famous author Lemony Snicket sets the tone for what it is that a maths tutor does. A maths tutor always feels inclined to check your work. For a subject like maths which sometimes seems so easy and other times seems so complicated, not having a maths tutor to check your work can cause many blank stares and plain confusion when it comes to understanding why you found a certain problem so easy to solve when doing your homework but why your answer happens to be wrong in the exam.


While the author of, "A Series of Unfortunate Events" made the statement above, he did not realise that it is quite an unfortunate event to not have a maths tutor to check your work. Alas, not having a maths tutor could lead to a series of unfortunate events if you end up failing maths at a grade 9 level, and you have to drop out of pure mathematics and do maths literacy.


While there is nothing wrong with studying mathematics literacy, it may mean that the career path that you wanted to follow becomes out of your reach as the university demands that you do pure mathematics to get in. Then you eventually end up studying something that is quite frankly not your cup of tea. As unfortunate as the scenario may seem, it is unavoidable if you don't settle for a good maths tutor from the onset.


The chance that you will be able to master mental math, or tackle Euclidian geometry by yourself at a high school level if you just scraped by during primary school is very low. To be honest, in high school, mathematics holds an important place, even more so if you are working towards getting accepted into university and aiming for high grades, and eventually pursuing a BSc or BCom degree. When numbers become the focal point for your job as an accountant, being clued-up on at least the basics of maths, can suddenly become vital, isn't it?


So, you choose to get a maths tutor, what does this mean?


  • Your maths teacher may find out why you are struggling with certain concepts in mathematics-perhaps you were not taught your timetables so well in primary school. Your maths tutor may start with a simple exercise to get you to memorise your timetables and perhaps that will make the magic happens in terms of some other maths concepts too
  • A tutor can teach you the art of problem-solving so that you can begin to understand how to use the skill to problem solve.
  • Your tutor will help you with homework and while ensuring that your maths homework is done every day, your tutor will also make sure that you go to school daily fully understanding what was expected from you in the homework exercise.
  • You have someone to review revision exercises with as well as the end of the year examinations
  • There is someone to check on your progress in the subject and guide you on how to make further progress
  • A mathematics tutor understands that each student is different, and he or she can help to formulate an individualised study plan for you and work with you according to your learning technique.


These are but some reasons why the expertise of a mathematics tutor is needed. Having seen the sheer benefit of having a maths tutor, let’s look at a brief overview of the opportunities available to you in terms of finding a maths tutor in Pietermaritzburg.

Find a Maths Tutor Near Me

Do you live on Pearl Road or is your home situated on Peach Road? Irrespective of which street you live on in Pietermaritzburg, you can find a maths tutor near you.  You may find tutor adverts posted on advertisement boards outside your local supermarkets or see a tutor advert posted on Facebook or Instagram. To be honest, the aunty from down the road may even advertise a private tutor for you.


If all those alternatives do not work for you, try using the Superprof website to find a mathematics tutor who will travel to your home to tutor you. With so many options at your disposal, you won’t be stranded in terms of finding a maths tutor. Again, finding a maths tutor doesn't mean not working on the subject by yourself.


Perhaps burn the midnight oil by watching math-related YouTube videos. You could find it just as enjoyable to complete maths exercises at the KZN National Museum. The KZN National Museum is so beautiful, we cannot think of a better place for you to get engrossed with some problem-solving while you listen to the sweet chirping of the birds. We also don't want you to chirp complaints about the subject anymore, so we suggest that you do some self-preparation for the subject by visiting Exclusive Books or Bargain Books at Midlands Mall.


By purchasing some basic maths textbooks from these bookstores, you will surely get to practise all the skills you may have learned at school and get to check your answers using the memoranda at the back of the textbook. Since you have come to realise that the recipe for mathematical success lies in working on your own and working with a qualified maths tutor, there is no reason why you can't cook up a storm in your next maths paper.


Finding an Algebra Tutor Near Me on Superprof!

Also, establish what your monthly budget is from the beginning.
