Nepean Tutoring began as a solo venture by the Principal Tutor, Ros McHenery, in February 2012. Since then the business has gradually expanded due to the continued need for quality home-tutoring and now utilises the services of up to seventy tutors across all grades and across a large range of subject areas.
Ros McHenery has had twenty years of experience in the education field. Throughout this time she has worked as a classroom teacher for Infants and Primary grades in both Australia and the UK, as a Secondary School support teacher in Sydney and as a private tutor. She remains involved in the hands-on aspect of the business as well as fulfilling the primary role of Principal Tutor and Administrator.
Our team of tutors have diverse backgrounds and professional experiences and have been hand-picked to meet the individual differences and needs of our clients. Some tutors are students who have recently completed their HSC and are now studying in a subject-related field or working to gain a teaching qualification. Others are classroom teachers, experienced tutors or university lecturers; each with different levels of experience and teaching styles. All tutors have Working with Children Checks and are carefully chosen for their suitability to work within the Nepean Tutoring philosophy of teaching and learning. This fabulous team of tutors bring to the table their collective body of knowledge and define the Nepean Tutoring brand.
Our philosophy is centred on the belief that all children deserve the best opportunity to achieve their goals and dreams. We also strongly believe that learning needs to become an intrinsic act where students have a desire to learn rather than a forced activity that stifles their creativity and focus. Our first objective is always to understand a student’s strengths and learning styles so that we can then use these to overcome issues that are holding them back from reaching their potential. There may be gaps of knowledge in a student’s learning journey due to various circumstances and we aim to fill the pieces of the puzzle so that the content taught in school is more readily understood and managed by each student.
Central of our philosophy is the belief that tutoring is a heart-centred business. Taking time to know our students, listening to parent’s concerns and doing our best to work with compassion and respect are the most significant values we bring to our role as your child’s tutor.
“Nepean Tutoring was really a good choice for my children. I have twins and they needed a little extra support in year 11 & 12 across specific subjects (3 in total) and Nepean tutoring gave us that. The personal approach of the coaches was the key, they genuinely cared about my children and wanted the best for them.
Providing encouragement, and a ‘can do’ attitude was really great for my son as he struggled to express himself in his compulsory English essays etc. Well the success story is that he achieved a band 4 in English - what a great result…. the 2 years of weekly tutoring to support and help him develop the writing skills he needed WORKED!
My children went to St Mary Senior High School and I think the school is really really excellent with highly motivated and engaged teachers, however the teachers serve the whole class, getting individual tutoring was extra effort and expense and looking back now I can say it was a very worthwhile investment for my children. Thanks Nepean Tutoring”
To see my son get a B in English when he was struggling to get past a D a year was more than I could have hoped for a year ago. I decided to continue the tutor sessions into next year as my son looked forward to meeting with Hanli each week and I know her influence has made all the difference in his enthusiasm for school and learning.
When I heard my daughter reading in her room by herself I knew I had made the correct decision to get her a tutor. Her confidence was amazing and her interest to read without the tears was our goal when we called Nepean Tutoring for their help. We are so pleased with the results she is receiving at school and hope this encourages to give tutoring a go. Thank you Ash for your help.
Thank you to Ros and her tutors for helping my boys through their senior years of study. Ros' advice and counsel was always received gratefully. Our boys exceeded their expectations due to the commitment of their tutors and the work ethic they developed to not leave there work to the last minute but to remain focused and organised. I would highly recommend tutoring in the senior years. It does make a difference.
Thank you for the assistance with Jemima over the past 18 months. Her time with both Callum this year and Apsem last has been invaluable and I would highly recommend your services for efficiency and professionalism.
I would like to thank Nepean Tutoring for providing such a good quality tutor for my daughter. Antoni was always professional, on time and provided clear explanations to assist in her understanding.
Our son Jacob has been tutored by Robert Tribbia of Nepean Tutoring since the beginning of this year and we are so thrilled with his progress. He was very nervous about being in year 11 and concerned he would struggle with the workload. Meeting with Robert twice a week has helped him stay on track with assignments and be very well prepared for his exams. Robert's broad subject expertise, patience and ability to ascertain the right amount of assistance for Jacob has been integral to his success. We would thoroughly recommend Robert and Nepean Tutoring to anyone looking for specialised or general assistance for their child.
After and exhaustive search, I found Nepean Tutoring; Ros listened and understood our needs. The tutor my boys were allocated is experienced, well suited to their requirements, communicates very well with us and has had a very positive impact on their education. We could not be happier with the result.
We are very pleased with the services provided by Nepean Tutoring. Steven Birkett has tutored our son for the past six months. Our son's confidence and self belief in his Mathematical understanding has grown significantly. He has gained skills and knowledge to set relevant, achievable learning goals. Steven is reliable and punctual and always willing to listen to our concerns. We highly recommend Nepean Tutoring.
I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for your wonderful service at Nepean Tutoring. Both Tutors which have come out to help Olivia have been lovely and a great match to her personality. They have been both friendly and professional. The tutoring they have given has been extremely successful and I will not hesitate to recommend your service to anyone.
My son reluctantly commenced tutoring late 2014. He is 14 and thinks it’s more important to focus on football rather than school studies. From the moment we met Ashlea we knew she was a perfect match. She has the ability to communicate clearly and encourage our son to believe in himself. His grades are improving and now shows interest in his tutoring sessions. Ashlea has a beautiful personality and I am grateful she has come into our lives.
My daughter has been getting tutoring for 18 months now and we have found the tutors to be very professional, flexible and knowledgeable. My daughters concentration and results have improved since we begun at the beginning of 2015. I would highly recommend Nepean Tutoring and its brought the stress levels in our house down with struggling to get my daughter to do homework.
My daughters have both received tutoring in maths through Nepean Tutoring. The service that we received was exceptional – the tutors chosen specifically for the individual needs of our daughters. Ros was a huge part of our decision to go with Nepean Tutoring, she was attentive, a wealth of information, and I felt that she was genuinely interested in the needs we had. Ros was always available to us to discuss future needs or changes, and she worked with us to achieve the outcomes we desired. The tutors were always punctual, professional and kind – highly recommended!
My son Aiden has been tutored in HSC mathematics for the last year and a half, with Paul Geier. Paul has so much knowledge and patience . Paul has encouraged Aiden and helped Aiden gain his confidence back, at such a pivotal time in his life. His dedication to Aiden and helping him reach his goals was more than what we had hoped for. We are very happy with Aidens results. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Paul and Ros for their dedication to Aiden , We highly recommend Nepean Tutoring to anyone who needs a little extra help with their studies . You will find Ros and her team go the extra mile for your children.

My three children have worked with the team at Nepean Tutoring for over a year now and have really come a long way reaching many personal goals and school achievements. Thanks to all of you for you continued work.
I was referred to Nepean Tutoring by a friend who was really happy with the service they provided. Nepean Tutoring is operated in an organised and professional manner. Ros is friendly and supportive and keeps the lines of communication open with regular emails or texts. The online payment option is so handy. Shaun has been tutoring my son for some time and is an excellent role model for him. Shaun knows his maths, is friendly and reliable, providing clear and straightforward guidance in a relaxed and informal manner. Shaun is someone that can relate easily to teenagers and can also inspire teenagers. My son enjoys his tutoring, his knowledge and understanding of the subject has improved so much. He has even referred Shaun and Nepean Tutoring to school friends.
The best thing about Nepean Tutoring was the fact that they allowed me to choose the tutor that would best suit my child. I wanted the option to choose someone who I knew my child would respond and relate to the best. Ros from Nepean tutoring achieved that perfectly by placing us with the tutor that she did. I have the flexibility to choose which ever topic or area we feel the boys need most and the tutor’s provides exceptional tutoring in all areas. Carlo is never late, he is super polite and well worth the money spent to ensure the boys stay on top academically.
I was recommended Nepean Tutoring and I would definitely further recommend Nepean Tutoring.
Our daughter (year 5) is being tutored by Rowena this year in maths. Rowena has been great with Chloe, she takes the time to explain the work in a way she understands. As a result of Rowena’s encouragement and help,Chloe has become more confident with her studies and this is now being reflected at school. I am very happy to recommend Nepean Tutoring.
Paul Geier has tutored my daughter for the HSC this year. I am very happy with the progress she has made. Paul is a patient and understanding teacher who has given confidence back to my daughter at this important stage of her education.
My son Mitchell has been tutored in HSC English for the past year and we are extremely happy with Danuta his tutor. With her easy to understand, friendly approach to teaching, and in a one on one learning environment, Mitchell relates very well to her & feels very positive towards his learning, which is already a huge improvement in him. He’s actually enjoying & understanding poetry for the first time, which is very surprising to us. Danuta has also been very flexible with tutoring days & times, on the odd occasion that sickness or other issues have come up, which has been very helpful.We are also very satisfied with Ros’ prompt responses to any issues we’ve had, and her efforts to find the right Tutors & timetables to suit both of my children, are greatly appreciated. Nepean Tutoring is a very professional company & I would highly recommend them.
Ros has been tutoring my son for the past year so he could keep pace in the classroom. Ros has a great insight into what he needs to fill gaps in his learning. She has really creative ideas to keep him interested and he always looks forward to his tutoring sessions. One of the most positive aspects of her tutoring is that he enjoys his homework and is happy to try hard rather than give a mediocre effort. Highly recommended.
Thank you for your service this year, Sean has been fabulous in getting Peter up to date with his maths and has provided him with good advice with regards to study.
Thank you for arranging Justin to tutor Lachlan and Rhiannon. I am very happy with both their half yearly maths results, Lachlan achieved 95.3% and Rhiannon 98.8%. Many thanks to Justin for his professional manner and expertise. He was great with both the kids – highly recommended.
We have been with Nepean Tutoring for many years and as a busy working mum have loved the process of being matched with a tutor who can come to my house and offer one on one support. I have always entrusted Ros’s judgement for picking the right tutor and she has matched my son with two amazing tutors that have seen him excel in Maths. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Nepean Tutoring.
