If you're searching for a maths or English tutor in Melbourne, come and check out our Glen Waverley tuition centre. We're a long established tuition centre Melbourne parents review highly.

Individual tuition programs

Our curriculum-linked programs are designed by experts to deliver the results your child needs (catch-up, extension or exam prep), while also building confidence and increasing love of learning. We teach children aged 5 to 15 and regular reports show how your child is improving. Every student has an individualised program and works towards agreed personal goals. Results are celebrated.

Maths tutoring

Effective and engaging maths tuition will ensure your child has the numeracy knowledge and thinking skills required for improved maths performance. We help children who struggle with maths, as well as those who are gifted.

English tutoring

Whether your child is a reluctant reader and writer or an aspiring novelist, we can prescribe a needs-based English tuition programme. Our tutoring complements schoolwork and follows the Australian curriculum.

I'm also a certified leadership coach, teacher and trainer with a passion for equipping young minds to have a positive self-image and be a positive influence.

We've been so impressed with the progress our daughter has made in her understanding of maths. NumberWorks’nWords teaches her strategies for critical thinking in a fun and engaging way. So fun in fact, she looks forward to going every week.

After just a few weeks with the program, I could see the amazing difference in Caitlin’s interest in maths, which was almost non-existent – she was just trying to survive in the classroom. Her confidence also increased almost immediately. She was suddenly a girl who wanted to learn about maths, not avoid it. During the first few terms Caitlin’s results in maths at school improved also, moving to new groups, working on more advanced maths processes and her reports showed the result of the extra effort and tuition.
