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.”

Dan has completed the last test for this term and I'm thrilled with the outcome - not only with the progress that's been made and his advancement and ability with numbers, but with his growing interest and self-motivation in numerical matters. EducateMaths has provided him with this springboard and fot this I thank you Paul.

We have tried different kinds of math tuition for our daughter but this is definitely the one that is working best for us. It's a very transparent program that shows you exactly where you are at and Steve is great with our daughter when she does the online tuition.

This is an awesome tutoring program as kids can set weekly goals to challenge themselves.

It's great for parents as easy to read reports are provided regularly to track progress.

We can't speak highly enough of Hettie who is so positive and can warmly connect and motivate the most unmotivaed learner. Nelson's loss of Hettie is Christchurch's gain.

We tried another well known tutoring company but Educate Maths is better by far. It is definately worth investing in.

Steve is a great tutor, and our son Pierce has advanced well and learned a lot! I think Steve's special gift is his ability to also make the lesson fun and turn a sometimes grumpy 6 year old boy into a happy one, no matter his attitude when he arrives, he always leaves happy and proud of himself.

Our daughter, who is currently in year 6, had many fundamental gaps in her maths knowledge and didn’t like maths.

We were very fortunate to find Steve Cornelius who helped her a lot with his online maths program, his patience and kindness.

She now is so much more confident, has caught up with many different maths topics and most importantly finds maths homework fun.

She’s ready for college now thanks to Steve.

We can highly recommend him!
