A bit of history
How we came to be
Online Tutoring and Online Video services in general have come a long way. With the Covid-19 outbreak in 2020 we as a population discovered that children are a lot more open and receptive to online learning that we ever thought possible. As a company we have offered face to face on site and at home tutoring for many years.
We have worked with 100’s of children, worked with countless families, liased with teachers and worked with schools directly to ensure that the tutoring we are offering is second to none. We have seen incredible results accross the board. In Primary school chidlren we have seen self confidence increase and amazing improvements in literacy and numeracy.
Our High School students have built amazing foundations which will help them as they navigate their way through school and achieve the results they want. Our HSC students have for lack of another word, absolutely smashed their HSC’s and far exceeded even their own expectations (state ranks, distinguished achievers, band 6’s etc.)
It wasn’t planned, but we will admit to being pleasantly suprised with the results.
So why online tutoring? The NSW lockdown and subsequent school closures showed us something very important, students want to learn! If you have incredible tutors, engaged students, involved parents and open lines of commuincation, the delivery method doesn’t matter as much as we thought it did. In person, face to face, at home tutoring and online tutoring all achieve the same result. The tools are there to replicate the classroom environment our belief is that for 90% of students the experience (outside of travel) has not changed and their results reflect this.
Online tutoring is not for everyone, we do have difficulty with some K-2 children, we put this down to devices not having yet being introduced at school (this is in no way a bad thing!) but once a child enters year 3 any reservations or technological barriers seem to disappear.
So here we are, we have 30+ tutors available across most K-12 Subjects in the NSW & Australian Curriculum, if you do not see a subject listed just ask, we offer too many to list them all but we do have tutors available for roughly 90% of all subjects across NSW & Australia.
We also have students from Many states throughout Australia and as the service is provided online, we have access to a vast array of tutors with varying skill sets and expertise from all over the world.

Technical Setup & Requirements
Zoom is our preferred option for Online Tutoring as it provides us the ability to manage rooms and classes. It also allows our tutors to use whiteboards, access resources and work collaboratively across many document and video formats. If you prefer to use alternate video conferencing software please let us know, we can acoomodate.
What you need
Zoom works well on windows computers, it works even better if the computer has a touch screen & stylys (e.g. microsoft surface)
Zoom works incredibly well on Mac OSX, iOS (Ipad & Iphone) etc. just ensure your device has a workng camera and microphone. Also, you are able to use an Apple laptop and also plugin in an ipad or iphone for the whiteboard / Stylus function)
Whilst a phone isn’t ideal a tablet work wonderfully, touchscreens and stylus really make online tutoring engaging. With a tutor and student both working on whiteboards or collaborating on homework or worksheets it makes a big difference.
