My name is Danuta. I was born and educated in England, graduating from Cambridge University where I studied Modern and Medieval Languages. I have taught in Italy, Portugal and Poland, in England and in Australia.

I tutor students who wish to improve in English, particularly HSC, but I also enjoy tutoring Maths up to and including year 10. I believe that each student is unique; each has their own way of learning and level of development, but each and every student is capable of learning. Unfortunately in today’s large classrooms the individual student’s needs may be overlooked. However, with one on one tutoring the student’s needs are more likely to be met; gaps in learning can be identified and addressed and the student can be guided to make meaningful connections between what he or she already knows and new information.

For me there is no better satisfaction than when a student learns to make connections thus broadening their web of knowledge.

I have been tutoring with Nepean Tutoring since 2012 and have found it a very rewarding experience. I have recently started tutoring on-line via Skype and Google Drive. On-line tutoring allows for greater flexibility and availability and has proved very successful with both young students and high-school students.

After teaching primary school from grades K-6 for years I found I wanted to support students on a more one to one basis and am currently working towards my Masters of Speech Pathology. I have a Bachelor of Education which was a conversion of my Bachelor of Teaching.

I have experience with all the primary years and have keen interest in supporting pre-literacy in preschool children as part of the work I am doing in my current Masters course. My 4 children have shown me that all children have different strengths, abillities and learning preferences. I enjoy seeing children experience success and have their confidence develop as they learn and strengthen new skills. Getting to know what motivates children to learn is something that fascinates me as well as considering factors which impact on a child’s development and working within these to improve their learning outcomes.

I have worked in both Department of Education schools and private schools and seen a vast array of students abilties with varied backgrounds. Some students have needed greater support than others to achieve learning outcomes and others have needed enrichment and extension activities to keep them actively engaged in learning. I believe all children have a right to learn from exactly where they are at regardless of their age or stage. My goal is support progress and build confidence in students in the areas of Literacy (including oral) and Numeracy.

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.

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.

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.

Anne and Troy   

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.

Kylie Newton   

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.

Melissa Cox   

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.

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.

Ronelle Kidd   

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.

Branka   

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.

Fiona Collins   

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.

Liz   

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.

Louise   

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.

Kim   

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.

Terri   

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.
