Tutoring is held at our location on the NSW Central Coast in the Berkeley Vale suburb (near Mingara). Our facilities include home teaching studios (guitar lessons also held on premises) as well as a large waiting lounge for family members to relax, read, play a game, or watch TV. We are also able to provide select services in the Newcastle Area at this time. Sorry, we do not travel to provide services on the Central Coast. If you live outside our area and are interested in tutoring via Skype, please contact us.

The program is offered at a discount rate through us, and is only $15 per school year.

School Holidays:

We continue to provide tutoring over most school holiday periods. School holidays provide a great opportunity for students who are behind in their class to catch up without the distraction of new topics and other classes. It is also an opportunity for students who are aiming to get into higher strands or explore advanced topics. It also offers more flexibility, as we are often available in the mornings and early afternoons in addition to normal after-school hours. We will let our students or their parents/guardians know a few weeks in advance in regards to availability over the holidays. If you’re interested in you or your child getting tutoring over school holidays, please feel free to contact us.

Group Study Sessions:

We offer group study sessions for students who are in the same class or studying the same coursework. These sessions should be supplementary to one-on-one tutoring and are generally useful leading up to exams or assignments. A discounted per-individual rate is typically offered. Please contact us if you are interested in setting up a group session with your classmates.
