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.

I grew up illustrating, playing teacher and dreaming big. After beginning an education degree at ACU while in my senior years of high school, I received a scholarship for a Bachelor of Design (Visual Communications), and thus entered a career in Graphic Design. Throughout my schooling and work, I maintained my love to educate by successfully tutoring privately across a large range of subject areas. My transition back to focus on creative teaching and to apply critical thinking skills toward learning has been a necessary overflow of my desire to develop confidence in the students I tutor .
I believe in the individuality of each being, and the need to nurture and support the unique qualities we each hold. We are not all made to be the same, and we all serve a purpose that is founded in our essence. I have a passion for building the confidence and self-worth of young people, and seeing them grow. I am driven to make a difference in the lives of others and to apply myself daily to that passion.

As an university qualified high school teacher, I have a strong understanding of the education system, teaching styles, student learning and school syllabus.

As a former classroom teacher I understand how to engage a student, make improvements, set-up study habits, explain difficult topics and concepts, answer questions and build a working rapport.

I am also an experienced tutor who has worked with a number of students with varying abilities, backgrounds, skills and knowledge. This means I can now quickly identify the priority areas and where improvement is most needed. I then work to develop the skills and knowledge of that student in those topics while still reinforcing their current classroom topics.

I immensely enjoy working with students to give them greater confidence in the classroom and when doing an exam. It is extremely rewarding to see a student, who had previously struggled, achieve results they never thought they were capable of. Through one on one tutoring a student can receive individualised help and support. My own struggles as a child at school in my early years, and my determination to overcome them saw me eventually achieve high distinction results in the HSC which led to my passion to help children achieve their best and gain confidence in themselves.

When I completed my HSC in 2014, Carmen was my tutor for Modern History and Society and Culture. Through an incredibly stressful year of schooling, Carmen helped me with anything I needed. She was always willing to help, and we would regularly text to make sure I was up to date, and if anything in particular needed to be focused on for the weekly tutoring session.

For Society and Culture, the Personal Interest Project (PIP) is a compulsory research task which can be up to 5,000 words, and is worth 40% of my overall mark. I can say I would not have been able to present such a thoroughly researched project without her! It was a relief being able to have a helping hand throughout the process.

Carmen also tutored me for Modern History, and had previously studied one of my topics at university, and was incredibly helpful for a subject which had such a high content level. It was an overwhelming subject, however by the end of the year I had improved my marks by over 20%.

My other topic in Modern History she had not previously studied, however each week she would come to tutoring having researched and learned the entire syllabus dot point for that week, and would supply her own topic tests for me to do as a review. I was very grateful to have a tutor willing to put in so much effort for my benefit.

I received high band five’s in both subjects and the tutoring was essential to those marks. I would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone who is struggling in these subjects!

Erin O'Toole   

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.

Belinda Jennings   

I contacted Ros through Nepean Tutoring because I felt that both of my children needed some assistance with learning. We were put in touch with Rowena who spent the first 6 months of this year helping my 15 year old daughter with maths. By mid year reports, our daughter had improved greatly & was offered an opportunity to go up to the next maths level at school.

Rowena has spent the latter 6 months of this year helping my 12 year old son. For a boy who was very popular with peers and talented in sports, he struggled with concentration and confidence in the classroom. He has really benefited and enjoyed this ‘one on one’ learning opportunity. His whole attitude towards maths and learning in general has improved greatly, to the point where he has been asking his school teacher to send him up to the next maths level. Recently he was very excited to come home and share with us that he had gone up to that next level.

I plan on staying with Nepean Tutoring throughout my son’s high school years because he has benefited so greatly from not only having a tutor to help him with his learning but particularly Rowena’s patience and determination throughout their sessions has made such a difference in his attitude and ability with schooling in general. He has gone from being a child who experienced anxiety and frustration throughout his schooling years to become someone who really does believe he can do it!

Jo Power   

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!

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   

We have had Deborah help our son, who is struggling with his reading and writing. His reading and writing has improved. Deborah makes the lesson's fun.

Catherine July 2018   

“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”

Steven is reliable and punctual and always willing to listen to our concerns. We highly recommend Nepean Tutoring.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

“When Connor initially commenced tutoring earlier this year, Ros quickly identified the areas that Connor was struggling with. We have seen a huge improvement in Connor’s writing, particularly sounding out words as he writes them and Ros has provided tools to assist in Connor’s handwriting. Being left handed made it difficult for us to effectively assist with his handwriting.

Connor’s reading was at a level 3 when we engaged Ros and it is now at a level 6, however we have seen a big difference in the types of books he now reads compared to the beginning of the year. Ros has helped Connor to develop with blended sounds and we have seen an increase in Connor’s confidence when he is reading. Ros re-visits areas that Connor has not completely understood. Ros applies different techniques to get the best from Connor including visual clues, getting him to listen to how she pronounces words for him to spell and many other assorted activities to ensure that Connor remains interested. Ros is extremely patient and responsive to Connor’s needs. This is very re-assuring for us – we recently approached the school and they explained that his reading isn’t great but not bad enough to be included in the reading programs they have at the school. Ros is doing for us what the school can’t.

More importantly, Ros provides us with techniques to assist in Connor’s development and also explains what she is trying to achieve when she is completing a task with him. She always answers our questions and clarifies with us to ensure we are happy with the progress that Connor is making.

Overall, we are extremely happy with Ros and her approach to teaching and Connor looks forward to her coming each week.”

Mrs. Giles has been a fantastic tutor throughout my HSC biology year, providing not only her extensive wisdom and experts within the tutoring session, but practical knowledge that has helped me to prepare for the exams and life after the HSC within biology.

Mrs Giles always found time within her busy schedule to answer my questions, no matter the time of day, and helped by providing her extensive knowledge from years within the field that swiftly answered all my questions (no matter how terrible they were). Furthermore, Mrs. Giles provided me with many resources, past papers and anything else that I needed to help me prepare for my exams which have helped me significantly over the past year. These resources, as well as her ability to convey complex biological points in a way that I could understand have resulted in my improved understanding of biology, and highness marks within each examination.

Thank you for the amazing work you have done this year, and I wish you the best for your future.

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.
