YOUR CHILD IS UNIQUE
By assessing your child’s learning styles, strengths and personal interests; we develop a personal tutoring Balwyn program to start building confidence and conquering weaknesses.
Our number one goal is to provide you with the support, resources and know-how you've always wanted, so that now you will be empowered to have positive influence over your child's academic future!
IN HOME TUTORING
If you suspected that one-on-one coaching is the most effective form of personal tuition; you were right! To minimize distractions and maximise convenience, your private tutoring Balwyn expert will come to your home for one-on-one "learning time" whenever suits your busy schedule.
One of the biggest frustrations a young learner faces is when their school work feels "too hard." Our expert home tutors Balwyn are trained to use communication strategies designed to help your child make sense of their school work so that it becomes easy to understand.
Some children learn best by using "hands-on" models and practical approaches. Others learn better through pictures, diagrams, numbers or words. What is your child's strongest learning style?
Imagine how much more autonomously your child will approach their school work once they gain confidence towards it. Your private will use confidence building strategies as a powerful motivational tool so that your child will not only perform better at school, they'll love doing it!
A young leaner's mind will function more effectively when it is engaged in learning. Engaged learning is our area of specialty, and is the key to improving attitudes towards school work. What stimulates your child's interest the most?
Your tutor will emphasise the importance of developing Higher Order Thinking Skills to deepen your child's understanding of everything they learn about.
Mathematics is about more than just numeracy; it is about using logic and sequential processes to solve problems. We offer Maths tuition Balwyn wide as well as surrounding suburbs.
English tuition Balwyn is about more than just literacy; it's about communication and using words to build, demonstrate and transfer understanding.
Primary school forms the foundation upon which our children's secondary and tertiary education will stand.

The Emotional Aspects of Learning
Private tutoring should be more than just 'teaching'. Good private tutors provide teaching, as well as personal coaching, mentoring, motivation and inspiration. A parent understands that the way their child feels towards something will govern how they think about it, and therefore what they do about it. We understand how crucial these factors are when it comes to school work and learning activities. This is why your private tutor will focus on the emotional aspects of your child's learning, described below:
Strengths: Your child's Balwyn private tutor will identify his or her personal strengths and learning styles to overcome barriers of fear whilst developing and capitalising on new strengths. Know More...
Passion: Your child's Balwyn personal tutor will identify his or her interests to make learning more personally relevant, more engaging and more fun. Know More...
Confidence: Your child's Balwyn home tutor will use strategic goal setting techniques to direct his or her focus on their progress whilst gradually building confidence towards areas they were previously struggling with. Know More...
Autonomy: Your child's Balwyn tutor will teach him or her how to use reflective practice skills to learn from mistakes more efficiently whilst conditioning an 'auto correction' pattern to learn more autonomously. Know More...

Which Are The Most Important Skills?
Learning is about much more than just remembering information. Our professional home tutor Balwyn experts focus on the most important skills your child will need for a strong academic future. Your child's private tutor will focus heavily on literacy skills and other competencies they'll need to achieve the highest possible assessment scores. These include exam taking strategies, essay writing techniques, report writing skills and especially Higher Order Thinking. Most importantly, they'll do so in a way that's personally tailored to your child’s level of schooling. Know More...
What Are Higher Order Thinking Skills?
Our expert private tutors are also trained to develop your child’s Higher Order Thinking Skills (HOTS) for a very good reason. Why are these skills so important? Because they are the specific cognitive abilities that Educational Psychologists have identified as the benchmarks of academic achievement and intellectual success. Higher Order Thinking Skills are examined by school assessors (especially at HSC level) to differentiate high achievers from the rest. Why? Because in the professional word; these thinking skills determine the difference between those who follow, and those who are followed. Know More...
Communication - The Key To Making Sense
Your child's personal tutor Balwyn will apply constructivist teaching techniques to ensure that information is communicated in a way that is easily understood. Constructivism allows new information to make sense easily by building gradually on the learners existing knowledge. When your child is able to make better sense of what they are learning, they will not only learn faster but feel more confident and more 'connected' with what they are learning about. Know More...
