For me, teaching is about learning, a two way street, as I genuinely enjoy the process of teaching and learning from those I mean to influence because in turn, I get to learn something new too. Inside teaching there is learning, and inside learning, there is also teaching.

What ever your background, we can help you with your current task.

My approach to tutoring is simple, make it fun, resourceful & practical.
My structure involves:
1. Get to know the student first.
2. Understand their reason for booking a Tutor.
3. Discuss the learning types: Auditory, Kinaesthetic, Visual & Tactile.
4. Help student relate to one or more of the learning types.
5. Try to use one of their chosen learning types to confirm if this approach to learning is more suited to their way of learning.

Every student usually has their own way of learning, however that also doesn’t mean that the student knows it yet, either. This is where good tutoring is so worthwhile.

This dynamic approach to tutoring can work for all levels of learning, including:
Secondary Tertiary Adult learners

Anything is possible when we choose to learn, not because it is expected, rather learning happens by itself, & it usually aims to turn a light on that was otherwise off, commonly known as an ‘Ah huh’ moment.

That’s the moment we know that the tutoring is working.

Another happy customer! Thank you Natalie.
Hi Mark, I just received my results for my Police Online Exams, and I passed!
Literacy, Numeracy, Online Writing, Abstract Reasoning and Digital Literacy.
Thank you so much for your help.

Another happy customer! Thank you Jennifer.
We were really impressed with how the session went and the way the boys responded. I think as much as maths and science help is needed, a solid foundation is absolutely a key and I could see growth occurring even in that short time.

Hiya Mark, I am looking forward to the next eight weeks smashing through these assessments. Also, I got a distinction for the last assessment that we worked on. See you on Wednesday.

Hi Mark
I got another High Distinction. I am shocked, and thank you for your help.

Hi Mark
I got another High Distinction. This is my third, so thank you again for your help.

Hi Mark, Thank you son much for helping Kane last night. I feel you got more out of him than I even expected. He is a great boy but needs to feel he is capable. He was walking taller last night after you left which is exactly what I wanted to see. Katrina

Having spent many years tutoring children, teenagers and adults the power of self expression through applied theatre practices, acting has proven a resourceful and engaging tool for addressing important issues within specific communities facing social challenges, inviting participants an opportunity to share their voice in a way that many may not have been able to do so otherwise without such a platform. Self expression, open communication and confidence building can certainly represent important keys for greater learning and development for all students, and their learning type/s.
