We have all had the experience of a "bad teacher" and we know it's not pleasant. Often the teacher is simply a bad match for that particular student rather than being a "bad teacher" in general but in either case the student has a serious problem. This is why many parents contact us for a private tutor - their child just can't "get it" when their teacher is teaching. It's incredible how one explanation results in more confusion whereas another results in that...

It's incredible how one explanation results in more confusion whereas another results in that "aha" feeling we all love so much! It is really a matter of getting the "right" tutor and not the "best" one. We see this every day in our work. A tutor might have hundreds of hours of experience and might have received dozens of testimonials from students, however, even such a tutor doesn't click with all students. Every tutor gets bad feedback sometimes. It's all about getting the right fit and this is what we do!

The proof is always in the action, to get an idea of how tutoring works in practice check out some feedback from tutors. Typically tutors focus on strategies needed to make progress, what's going well and what needs improvement. Of course, every tutor has their own unique style that is tailored to your child's specific needs.
Mia is a confident student is able to vocalise her thoughts clearly to indicate what she can and can't understand. She is comfortable when presenting her working out on paper and should continue this habit throughout her schooling. Mia is encouraged to back check all the questions she attempts to ensure no small mistakes are made.
Good attitude towards learning, always wants to learn and even asks for more work. Puts a good effort into all his work and does all that he can even with other commitments Good work habits, tries his best
Jack demonstrating a lack in ability to consistently draw straight lines using a ruler. This was due to his gripping method of the ruler and pencil. Errors with reading measurements on a protractor, drawing straight lines with a ruler, drawing line graphs and their axis
Morgan (my son) reckons she is fantastic, and that she is really helping him out tremendously at the moment. He says he is understanding the work etc. I think the best part is that he is listening and communicating with her
Hello, I am sorry I have been so uncommunicative. Dev was lovely and I was sorry to see her go. She helped Thea very much with her maths and did herself out of a job. Thea and her teacher told me that she had caught up and was actually finishing before everyone else. I hope however, I can get Dev back if Thea's maths falls back again. She was really fantastic and can highly recommend her.
Daniel is absolutely thrilled with Sheetal. I am also impressed with Sheetal's approach and commitment. His tutoring dwells into understanding the concepts behind mathematical formulas, not just simple application, which is exactly what I had been hoping for. I am also pleased that Sheetal is open to extra lesson should Daniel need them. So in response to your question - very, very happy. I've been recommending you guys to my friends !!!
