Tutor Profile


Cansu graduated from Queensland University of Technology with a Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics.  She was chosen whilst studying to be a maths tutor in the QUT maths access centre. Cansu soon realised that she really enjoyed teaching and helping others. She then started a maths blog and quickly began receiving enquiries from other students who needed help.

There are many maths tutors that can be found online, but they are not all the same. It became clear that there was a big shortage of qualified maths tutors in Queensland. Cansu decided that she wanted to provide the best maths tutoring service in Queensland… Then she started A Star Maths.

Cansu’s expertise is in IB Maths, General Mathematics, Mathematical Methods, Specialist Mathematics, Statistics, Calculus and Advanced Calculus. She has tutored a range of mathematics and statistics to university students for the last 12 years. She has also helped hundreds of high school students achieve results well beyond their expectations.

Cansu believes that her success lies in making maths easy to understand. She focuses on developing students thinking and problem solving skills. Difficult concepts will be explained in simple, easy to understand terms and common student misunderstandings and errors are addressed. Cansu often receives feedback that her methods are easier to understand that what is taught at school!

Cansu is also preparing online courses. Her students will have an opportunity to test their knowledge with online quizzes and practice tests. We will publish them on udemy soon.

With Cansu’s help you will gain confidence with maths and move closer to achieving your goals. As Cansu says, ‘Developing a strong foundation is vital to succeed in maths. It’s never too early to start!’
