Tutoring tailored to each student

We don’t have standard programs or lessons. Your child has a standard lesson plan at school. Instead, we create lessons based on your child’s unique needs. We monitor your child's progress and change our approach whenever necessary. This is why we are so effective and it's why we get results.
We get that when you're considering tutoring, you want to talk about it now! Call 0438 546 314 Monday-Friday to tell us about your child. If we can't answer, leave a message and we'll make sure to call you back as soon as we possibly can!

Tutoring in Stanmore, Inner West Sydney, and now in Parramatta.

Sometimes, when we talk to parents on the phone, we hear a lot about reports and grades. Parents explain that their child is doing 'poorly' or 'failing' or 'getting bad marks'. This might sound a little odd, particularly coming from a tutor, but we don't actually put grades first. Top be clear, grades are helpful. [...]

NAPLAN Tutoring - what do the results tell you? This week, Confidence Boost Tutoring was in the Australian about NAPLAN tutoring.
