Tutoring in Wanaka
We work with students from Year 2 to Year 13 to help them achieve their literacy, reading, writing, english, maths, science, physics, chemistry, history, german, business studies and economics academic goals. We also offer courses for adults in literacy, english as a Second Language, maths and the sciences as well as a business communication course aimed at helping small businesses.
Our positive learning environment uses a variety of learning methods. Computer-based learning gives rote repetition and drills that build long-term memories of skills and learning strategies. The students enjoy using the programmes, which are easy to use and are designed to use their existing skills. Paper-based learning is ideal for introducing new concepts as it encourages teacher interaction and building steps and understanding as they go. This use of both learning strategies is part of our best practice and one of the reasons why our tutoring is so successful.
All our staff are trained teachers who understand not only teaching, but also the education system. This gives our students the head-start they need to achieve their goals. The increase in skills and achieving their academic goals has a flow-on effect, improving the students’ attitude, confidence, and self-esteem.
Whether the student needs extension or catch-up work, they will be given an assessment during their first session with us. This allows us to identify and target their individual learning needs. Then they attend 80-minute lessons once or twice a week and follow their individualised learning programmes. Our teaching ratio is 1:4, which means we provide a relaxed yet motivating learning environment. Our students feel comfortable and happy to learn at their own rate. Progress is monitored and students are regularly reassessed to ensure they are receiving the best possible help and guidance.
