I have known Ros for many years. She taught my eldest daughter in Primary school, and I was always extremely happy with her teaching methods.
When our youngest daughter was having issues with maths we knew that turning to Ros would be the best way forward.
We were introduced to Caitlin an exceptional young lady, she listened to us as parents and to Layla and the results have been amazing. Layla has gone from a student just passing to getting high to full marks.
Thank you Ros for your time and efforts and to Caitlin for giving Layla the confidence and assistance she needed.”
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.”
I was recommended Nepean Tutoring and I would definitely further recommend Nepean Tutoring.
Olivia’s progress has been remarkable since having Maree tutor her and we can’t thank her enough.
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”
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.
Often, there is too much emphasis on getting those few extra marks for students, rather than an approach that builds their foundations. Confidence, curiosity and critical thinking are those foundations – and if they are built within a student, the grades will come.
Nepean Tutoring understands this, and supports me to support my students. They offer me plenty of ideas and resources for different ways of teaching, and make the administrative back end efficient and easy-to-use, so that I can focus on teaching my students. Overall, Nepean Tutoring is a great business because they understand these priorities, and work hard to ensure that my needs – and therefore my students’ needs – are met.
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!
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!
grateful she has come into our lives.
