“Ruth taught me during years 10 and 11. She helped me a lot with my learning and with life; a lot was going on at home and school, and things were tough. Every day at school, Ruth made me feel welcome; more than I felt at home during that time. Having my Maths and English has helped me a lot. I’m really lucky that I have a great job now. I am here at Auto Windowscreens, making a good life for myself!”

Billy, Tuition Extra Pupil

“I couldn't rate this company enough. My son absolutely loves Mark, Brittany, Maura and Amin and, in the short time he has been seeing them, has progressed 2 levels in both Maths and Science. Ruth has been incredibly helpful in accommodating our busy schedule. I would recommend this company to anyone looking for tuition for their children."
