Tutor helping boy achieve results

Rhys Diffin, 11, has become far more confident with his maths since Daniel Ortiz has tutored him.
His mother, Lily Coster, said Rhys had been getting maths tutoring for about a year from Mr Ortiz after struggling at school.

"He's gone from not being confident before to being quite confident and he's achieving. His maths is at a higher level than where he was before.

"He is definitely achieving and finding it fun."

Mrs Coster said using multiple methods to solve a problem was confusing for children. She remembered learning many things by rote when she was at school, such as times tables.

Mr Ortiz was particularly good at teaching in a way that appealed to Rhys and reinforced the things he learned at school, she said.

"Whatever Rhys learns at school, Daniel does in his tutoring as well. I've been watching the way he teaches then when Rhys does his homework, I'm there to help him when he needs the help."

My tutoring services are available evenings and/or weekends within Te Puke, Papamoa, the Mount and Tauranga and my rate is $40/hour lesson, plus an additional for petrol and travel time depending on the area.

My son has been having tutoring for maths with Daniel for a year now. I truly believe that for a child to learn the concept, particularly of maths, they need to have confidence in their ability and Daniel is perfect for helping children to at first grow in confidence then he utilises their interests to help in understanding concepts of math. My son has shown good steady progress over the year and looks forward to his lessons with Daniel each week. Highly recommend Daniel.

Daniel has been tutoring our son since the beginning of the year. In that time our son has gained confidence with his maths. We have found Daniel to have a fun approach with his tutoring which has helped engage our teenage son. We would highly recommend Daniel to anyone who is thinking about getting their child a maths tutor.

Daniel provided my daughter with tutoring for her NCEA level 2 calculus preparation. He was extremely accommodating with fitting into our busy schedule , my daughter actually looked forward to her tutoring session as Daniel made them enjoyable. She went into her end of year exams feeling much better equipped to handle them, I would defiantly recommend his services to anyone.

Daniel provided Spanish tuition for my grandson. The lessons he provided were invaluable and helped him come to grips with the language. My grandson very quickly became confident and was quite happily speaking in Spanish. The best part of the service provided was that Daniel is Spanish and it is his first language. Definitely would recommend Daniel for anyone starting out, or even just needing someone to give you a "boost" with the subject.

My son gained interest in Math withMr. Oritz. They had fun during lessons. He helped me as a parent recognise the need to motivate my son. In 2 months there has been much improvement. Thanks so much!! Alexa

Dan is our son's maths tutor, for a year now. His approach is fun, friendly & relevant. He instills confidence & encourages our son to achieve with pleasing results. Homework reinforces learning & mini tests for revision have helped & shown improvement in our son considerably. Convenience of lessons at home helps. Teaching at school is also revised at home with Dan continuing teaching strategies that work. 1:1 lessons with breaks between if necessary. Our 11yr old son looks forward to lessons.

My son was failing at math miserably, he could not grasp ev en the basic equations, with Daniels help he passed his nzcea, Dan was patient and understanding and set my boy homework to do through the week to keep him focussed on the learning.Daniel is not a clock watcher he often ran over in the lessons because he wanted to make sure that the understanding was there before he left, i would recommend Daniel to anyone,

I have only good things to say about Mr Ortiz. My son had quite significant issue with his Maths ...going close to his NZCEA exams .. we had some serious concerns. Mr D. Ortiz experiences and also different approach on "maths tuition" has been more then this effect Maths came so more easy for my son and results have been more then better then we had anticipated with great results!. thanks to him.

Our son has had Dan as a Maths Tutor for several months. He is no longer getting "Achieves" hes passing with "Merit" so we are very thrilled with the improvement with our sons work and the confidence he is gaining in what was once a weak subject. Dan comes highly recommended from our family.
