Help your child reach their full potential

Your child receives

  • individual assessment to identify weaknesses and gaps in understanding 
  • the opportunity to discuss setting of goals based on the information from my assessment, school reports, NAPLAN results and what you and your child see as a priority
  • a customised learning program suited to his/her needs and which targets areas of concern as well as consolidating fundamental concepts and skills
  • learning experiences that are closely aligned with the Australian National  curriculum (Prep - Year 10) and Queensland curriculum (Years 11 - 12) and hence dovetail with his/her school  program
  • a variety of learning activities to maintain interest and cater for individual learning styles
  • my undivided focus (rather than only a part-share of the teacher's attention as is given in class or group tuition sessions)
  • encouragement to ask questions in order to clarify  understanding
  • time to reinforce skills and understanding of a concept before he/she is introduced to more difficult material
  • follow-up activities (to reinforce understanding and mastery of skills) which can be completed at home
  • accurate feedback and acknowledgement of progress


 You, as the parent,  receive

  • information from your child's assessment
  • the chance to take part in joint goal setting and to discuss your concerns and priorities
  • an invitation to stay, if you would like, to observe tuition sessions
  • regular feedback on his/her progress during drop-off or pick-up times
  • my assurance that I am working with you and the class/subject teachers at school to improve your child's confidence in their own ability in order to reach his/her full potential
  • peace of mind that there are no hidden costs. Tuition is charged at an hourly rate and there are no lock-in contracts, sign-up fees or minimum amount of sessions.
