How our tutors tackle English:


Writing skills

In lessons, our tutors will give your child opportunities to write about topics they’re interested in. This takes away the added pressure of “getting it right”, and allows them to practice getting their ideas onto the page in a clear, concise format.



Our tutors are experts at bringing out the natural curiosity in students, through gentle inquiry and open questioning. This will help your child to delve into the “deeper meaning”, giving them the space and confidence to develop their own critical voice.


Our careful matching process means your tutor will know what  “clicks” for your child on a personal level. They’ll make sure every lesson is geared to ignite curiosity, excitement and passion towards the English subject. 

The big picture

Whether it’s writing a good cover letter to get into University, or developing the next script for their short-film – we’ll make sure your child understands the many places English can take them in the world. 

Our English tutors will help your child:

Break complex problems down into manageable chunks

Fill gaps in their knowledge from previous years

Know how to confidently answer NCEA English questions

Develop a strong intuition for English subjects

Complete assignments and practice tests with supervised support on hand

Understand the subject’s relevance to the world around them
