     Affordable, fun, yet EFFECTIVE tutoring

on the Central Coast

      Why parents choose me as their tutor.

*  I'm a qualified special education teacher (Masters Degree).

*  Qualified Dyslexia and MSL tutor (More information here)

*  My tutoring gets results!  100% of my clients have improved with my assistance (I'm not joking

about this, it's an impressive record and I plan to keep it!).

* Honesty, I will tell you exactly what your child's strengths and weaknesses are and how I can help 

them succeed, I won't tell you what I think you want to hear. 

* Each lesson is targetted to help your child succeed, every child works on their own program based

on their own strengths and weaknesses.

* I understand how children learn best and that each child is different.  My lessons are designed to

compliment your child's learning style and help them understand and remember their basic skills.

* I can tutor Primary English (reading, writing and spelling) and Maths.

* I can tutor all primary grades, K-6.

* I can tutor High School English (to help those children struggling with basic reading, writing and

spelling required at high school).

* I can advise lots of practical and simple ways you can practice basic skills with your child each day

that won't take hours to complete but will boost your child's skills.

* Minimal extra homework to take stress off busy families.  Homework will be given but it is quick,

lots of games based practice for maximum enjoyment.

* No lock in contracts, if my tutoring doesn't suit your child or family you can leave with 2 weeks


* My tutoring is affordable.  Call me on 0434 888 321 for rates.

* Either paired or one-on-one lessons to suit your child's needs. 

*Tutoring offered at varying times to suit busy parents, weekday mornings and afternoons.

* I always update my parents after every lesson and will even teach them a few new things

from time to time.

* You are only ever dealing with one tutor, and I'm the only one that tutors your child.

* I will work with other health care providers (speech therapists, O/T, pschologists) to help your child

achieve success. 

Why children don't want to leave my tutoring.

* I want to help students succeed and they know it. 

* I make the effort to get to know your child really well.  I know they're strengths and weaknesses,

their likes and dislikes and what they're aiming for.

* I make sure tutoring is fun and engaging.

* I use lots of small activities to maintain focus and allow adequate practice of new skills.

* I understand children don't want a lot of additional homework so I keep homework short, practical

and as fun as possible.

* I actually teach lessons and only skills your child doesn't all ready know.  We're not just

practicing homework or wasting time.

* My students can notice their own improvements quickly and they want to learn more.

* My students find their confidence improves quickly and they feel they can be more independent

with their studies. 

* My students can see progress in their tests, reports and NAPLAN results.

* My students realise that learning can be fun and like to come and spend an hour with me. 

Why schools and teachers appreciate my tutoring?

* Children who have been struggling at school benefit from my lessons and their results at

school improve quickly. 

* I liaise with teachers about my students, I can give tips and advice about activities and programs

that may help the child in school. 

* I can help extend children who are working above grade level which takes some of the pressure

off teachers.
