At EducateNZ we care about our students and are committed to accelerating achievement and celebrating success
Hi. I’m Steve Cornelius
During my time as an educator with over 30+ years’ experience, I have been a classroom teacher, a Principal of three Schools and the Manager of Resource Teachers of Learning and Behaviour.
I work currently out of a Red Beach Primary School providing direct maths tutoring for students who need that extra learning to boost maths progress and confidence. I have been having a great deal of success in improving maths achievement levels for students. One of my independent on-line students (who does not see me directly), has progressed her maths achievement level nearly 3 years in 21 months and is now achieving above her Actual Age in Math.
I am able to support students through ‘live video feed’ when they have a particular ‘struggle/frustration’ in math. Parents have found this very useful preventing many family math conflicts.
If I was to be asked what my biggest takeaway would be when teaching/tutoring students it would be:
“My biggest thrill is to see the smile on a student’s face when they have succeeded at something they thought was impossible.”
