Our student-matching process:
Does my child need tutoring?
People enter our programme for all sorts of reasons, and we help students at every level.
In short, if you’re seeking personalised support to help your teenager excel in school – and build a lifelong enthusiasm for learning – you’ve come to the right place.
Why the library?
In 2010, we did an experiment using the three most common tutoring locations – at home, at an office, or at the library. On average, students who were tutored at the library went on to get the highest grades.
Libraries offer a quiet and comfortable space for focus; thousands of resources on hand; and a solid WiFi connection. Our students have often reported feeling more focused, inspired and studious at the library. Also, public libraries are a convenient central meeting point for tutors and students.
How often should my child get lessons?
We recommend at least one lesson per week if you want to see great results. Any less, and students might lose interest or forget their material by the next lesson. You can customise your package to include up to five lessons per week.
How long are the lessons?
To maximise concentration, sessions are approximately 55 minutes long. We’re happy to arrange longer lessons (with a break in between) upon request.

Where do you offer tutoring?
Which subjects do you tutor in?
Are your tutors qualified?
Absolutely. Our team are mostly students or young professionals who’ve studied in the field they’re tutoring in.
As well as impressive subject knowledge – we recruit our tutors because they show excellent empathy levels, charisma and mentoring skills.
What’s more, our tutors receive more than 25 hours of professional development annually – making ours the most rigorous tutor development programme in New Zealand.
Prices + Packages
How much do lessons cost?
Lessons are priced based on your chosen package – the amount of lessons you receive per week. We can tailor our packages to meet the needs of the student.
What is your cancellation and refund policy?
If your child or your tutor gets sick, it’s up to the cancelling party to organise another lesson within 14 days of the original lesson. If there’s less than 24 hours notice given, the lesson will be deducted from your lesson total.
If you’re planning a holiday away for an extended time, lessons can be rescheduled until the next suitable time (but you must give at least two weeks notice to head office). Alternatively, you can save these lessons as “make up lessons,” which can be used up at any time before the end of the year.
How do I pay?
Once you begin lessons, you will receive an invoice sent to you via email. We accept payment through internet banking, cheque, and credit cards.
Why weekly lessons?
Just like a sport – regular practice is key – and tutoring works the same way.
All of our research shows that students who commit to weekly lessons experience the most remarkable results.
With consistent lessons, your tutor will also be able to provide you with more detailed feedback every week – so that you can see exactly how your investment is paying off.
It’s not too late to lift those grades.
82% of our students get a Merit or Excellence endorsement. Subject spots are running out fast – book now to secure yours.
