This course is most suited to fluent English speakers who need to improve reading, spelling, grammar, and writing.

One to One Tuition

This course is available for One to One Tuition.

In certain cases the choice of a One to One Tutor is most suitable as students may be enrolled in a vocational course (for example) Aged care, at a Tafe College and need some assistance with their course.

Others may feel that they are not ready to participate in a class situation yet.

Then there are those who may have a specific goal, perhaps to get their driving licence or join the police force who may need extra help with spelling to pass the entrance exam. We can also prepare you to complete the IELTS test.

Whatever the reason we try to accommodate. One to one’s meet once per week for one to two hours.  Location and time are by arrangement. This is flexible and is most suitable for working people who have non-flexible work schedules.
