Our Tutors tutor age 5 to university level students. We also cater for adults with an ESL background or adults wanting to brush up on their english reading and writing skills and math skills

Yes. It is important the tables are learnt at an early age. Tables are the key for understanding all other mathematical concepts. Our Tutor ensure our maths students have tables practice scheduled into their lessons.
Our tutoring is just as effective for extension as it is for catching up.
Session times are organised around you and your child’s schedule and life style
We require 24 hours notice if your child cannot make the scheduled session as tutors need adequate notice. We’ll cancel your child’s tutoring session for that day and schedule a make-up session during the term.
Yes it does. Research has shown that on average students who had received tutoring improved by 0.79 standard deviations – enough to comfortably move a student one and a half grades. It could mean moving a student from a low D to a good C, or a low B to a good A grade.
Lest we forget, this level of improvement may be sufficient for the student to pass their exams or get the grades to go to their preferred school or university,
The length of time each student requires tutoring depends on the goals they set for themselves and the level of achievement they want to attain. Some students are tutored for a couple of terms, and others longer. It really depends on each student.
Yes tutors usually give homework, although it’s not time consuming. Homework matches the topic your child is working on and help new facts and skills to move from short-term memory to long-term memory. For best results, we recommend you encourage your child to complete homework before their next tutoring session
Yes. The tutor will discuss the homework task with your child and ensure that he/she is clear on what to do. Seniors sometimes do their homework with their tutor, especially if it’s related to an area that they’re struggling with. However please remember that tutoring is about empowering students to do homework independently.
Definitely no. Our tutors work on the schools current curriculum and will support what your child is learning at school
