THE TUTOR OF THE MONTH

 

All of our tutors are incredible, but every month we ask our parent community if any of our tutors have gone above and beyond to support their students. They end up here and get a gift card and a personal letter of recommendation to reward them for their hard work.

 

OCTOBER 2017

Braden

“Braden is a very polite and confident young man. He is extremely knowledgeable in Biology. Our daughter has gained confidence with this topic and has not been afraid to sit her exams. Her marks have improved and she is happier at school. Braden is reliable and flexible with tutoring days. He has also shown that he knows Biology and can assist our daughter with what she is currently studying at school. Braden is great with our daughter and they also have a good laugh during the lessons. She was more comfortable to sit her exams and enjoys Biology now. She has a clearer understanding of this topic. For our daughter to have confidence and improved marks in Biology is exactly what we hoped for with tutoring.”

Kellie, Toukley

On top of this, Braden is always a delight to work with, always keen to take on more students and an all round good guy. Braden provides consistent, informative, well structured feedback to all his students (Yes, we read all of them!). Thanks for your ongoing hard work Braden and good luck in your upcoming Psychology exams at Macquarie University!

Madeline

Madeline

SEPTEMBER 2017

“Maddie was a brilliant tutor for our son in weeks up to the HSC. She helped his confidence, his writing style and has made a major difference to how he went about answering questions in the two Advanced English exams. Maddie went to extra efforts to give our son excellent advice on how to use quotes and specific examples from texts. She did her own research and provided great materials for the Shakespeare play he was studying although it wasn’t one that she had been familiar with before.
We thought she developed a good relationship with our son is a very short space of time which made the sessions much more productive as he was keen to take her great advice and help. Thanks again Maddie.”

AUGUST 2017

“Evie is an incredible tutor. She always turned up on time with a positive attitude which is great from a parent’s point of view. However, she was not only a tutor for my daughter but also a very positive role model and mentor. She looked beyond just telling my daughter the knowledge, she also taught her how to study, how to take notes and what the marker is looking for. She took the time to get to know my daughter so she could find out how she retains knowledge and focused her sessions around this. She was a great fit for my daughter and she is extremely smart but still able to transfer the knowledge to my daughter so she would relate and understand it. Both my daughter and I were sad when my daughter finished Biology in the HSC as she will be sorely missed.”

Nathan

JULY 2017

“I cannot stop praising Nathan for his dedication and commitment to supporting my son. Nathan comes prepared to each session and is very patient and supportive of my son. Nathan even sets additional tasks and shares his great tips and tricks for exams and in preparation for exams. This was especially useful for my son in completing his HSC this year. Nathan is supportive and encourages my son. Nathan makes him feel comfortable and so the session is always very productive.
Nathan is very flexible and accommodating around changing tutorial times from week to week. Nathan is well mannered and always acts in a professional manner. I also appreciate Nathan being so flexible around the tutorial times. Thank you Nathan.”

Nicholas

JUNE 2017

“Nick is always encouraging and our son has gained great confidence in his school work. He has improved in confidence to do work by himself and has improved knowledge. Nick’s ability to adapt to what our son needs to work on that particular week is what I most liked as well as being always happy to adjust his time or day for our son’s other commitments. Recently, my son received the school’s “Mira Poljak Encouragement Award” for Improvement in Literacy.”

Caitlin

Caitlin

MAY 2017

“Our daughter is totally engaged with Caitlin. She looks forward to the session and is always so proud of what she has has achieved.
We wanted a tutor who would help her see she is more than capable and build confidence, which is now definitely beginning to show.
Our daughter will now say math is one of her favourite subjects and the challenge of going beyond what they are studying in class is making her very proud of her achievements. We most like that Caitlin is always on time, she understands what we are trying to achieve and communicates with our daughter in a way that makes the session feel like fun. I also love that our email after the session gives me a lot of feedback on what they have worked on and our daughter’s attitude and efforts. I intend to continue with the sessions because I would like to think this is the beginning of a long term love of Maths rather than a fearing it.”
