Why small-group tuition?

The last three years have been difficult for everyone - particularly students who have had their learning interrupted by COVID-19 and periods of learning from home. Teachers across the state ensured that quality learning continued despite periods of disruptions to face to face learning.

We know that the learning of some students was impacted by these disruptions.

Small group tuition, delivered by professional educators, is very effective in boosting students’ learning and helping them to quickly get back on track.
