We Are

THE ONLY  TUTORING COMPANY THAT PUTS MENTAL HEALTH FIRST

Student Anxiety is higher now than ever before. Unfortunately, it isn’t a problem that just goes away if left unchecked. The only way to help is to make a change. 

A QUICK LETTER TO CONCERNED PARENTS

DEAR PARENTS,

 

IT’S FRUSTRATING ISN’T IT? WANTING TO HELP YOUR KID, BUT NOT BEING SURE HOW TO.

 

WE’VE BEEN A PART OF SO MANY STORIES LIKE YOURS. WHETHER IT WAS HELPING A YOUNG YEAR 4 GIRL BELIEVE SHE COULD ACTUALLY DO WELL IF SHE WAS TAUGHT IN A DIFFERENT WAY. OR HELPING A YEAR 12 BOY OVERCOME THE STRESS THAT WAS EATING AWAY AT HIM AS THE PRESSURE TO GET INTO UNIVERSITY INCREASED

 

WE KNOW YOU WANT THE BEST FOR YOUR CHILDREN, AND THAT’S WHAT WE PROVIDE. SOMETHING A LITTLE DIFFERENT, TO HELP YOU SEE THE LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL.

WHAT DO WE BELIEVE?

WE BELIEVE THAT SUCCESS ISN’T JUST AN EQUATION OF HOW SMART YOU ARE, OR YOUR IQ

Longitudinal studies running from as far back as the 1920s have shown that IQ was a poor predictor of success. By comparison, the most important predictors were goal orientation, self-confidence, and perseverance

WE BELIEVE THE TRADITIONAL APPROACH OF FOCUSING ON GRADES NO LONGER WORKS

Degrees are no longer the golden ticket they used to be to getting work. However, the demand for personal development and interpersonal skills is growing rapidly. Since getting a good ATAR doesn’t guarantee success, so students need a new approach to succeed in life after school

THAT’S WHY WE PROVIDE A WORLD CLASS HOLISTIC TUTORING SERVICE

Our 360 approach to education lets us see any issues from all angles to guarantee the biggest chance of long-term success. By understanding what students will need in life, we can work backward to set them up for this in school.

HERE ARE SOME OF THE COMMON ISSUES WE HAVE HELPED STUDENT’S OVERCOME

DOESN'T BELIEVE THEY CAN LEARN THE CONTENT

This is an extremely common issue that usually develops during Primary School. The technical term for this issue is called ‘learned helplessness’ and can be solved in a variety of ways.

STRESSED AND OVERLOADED FROM SCHOOL

More rampant than ever with an ever-increasing emphasis on results as the end goal over learning as the end goal. While stress in small doses is a good thing to inspire action, too much can lead to mental and physical issues.

We place emphasis on the areas of learning that help build life long healthy association with learning, whilst showing how to use ‘good’ stress to your advantage

NO INCREASE IN RESULTS, DESPITE EFFORT

A common misconception is that when you want to improve, all you need is more hard work. This assumes the issues is about the quantity of study, rather than the quality. 

Don’t get us wrong, you still need hard work, but we can help students use their effort more efficiently.

FEELS THE TEACHER GOES TOO QUICKLY

The benefit of One on One tutoring is that this should never happen. The reality of a teacher’s life is that they need to cater to often 25+ students at once. We pride ourselves on delivering tutors who can slow down, and explain complex concepts in a way the student can understand.

WANTS TO IMPROVE, BUT DOESN'T KNOW HOW TO START

The greatest failing of education is the lack of emphasis on teaching students ‘how to study’. Arguably the most useful life long skill one could obtain. Suffice to say, we bring all the latest innovations and developments from the education world to help the student understand all the aspects that greatly increase the quality of their study.

MY KID DOESN'T LIKE SCHOOL

To be honest, this is a hard one to give a simple answer to. The reason for this is that this sort of thinking can come from so many different places. The only way to start helping to fix this is by listening to the student to hear why they don’t like school.

From here, if it is within our capability, we work backward to fix the issue.
