Our Tutors

Our tutors are fun, friendly, and knowledgeable. They’re also our dedicated employees, not contractors, and work with us to continually develop their tutoring skills. This close partnership allows us to confidently match each student with their ideal tutor.

Our tutors are coaches, facilitators, and mentors.

Like top sports coaches who can improve a range of performance issues, our tutors are trained to analyse the way that a child learns and create a big-picture game plan for his or her success. The Inspiration Education Holistic Model of Learning helps our tutors identify and expand their students’ abilities and their outlook on learning.

“Previously Ben has found it difficult to focus and had not done particularly well in his mock exams which was of concern to his parents! Ben seemed more confident and motivated to do well. We found the service very professional, with knowledgeable tutors who related really well with my son and taught him skills to assist in studying and exam preparation. The tutoring instilled confidence which has been invaluable. My son has sat his exams with motivation and belief in himself.“

“Stef is a great tutor and with her assistance my daughter learnt heaps and felt confident about doing the assignments and exams. She also guided my daughter with a paper that they didn’t offer at her school which she needed for future study and university. I can’t express how grateful we are to have help for the last two years with tutoring and I highly recommend your services to anybody. Many thanks. Worth every cent!“

Parent, Palmerston North

A great tutor isn’t someone who just helps students with maths homework, but someone who can help them grow as people.

All of our tutors:


Have a passion for learning and helping others succeed

We’ve found that the best way to get students enthusiastic about their studies is to employ people who really love learning, themselves. We look not only for smart tutors, but for people who are inspiring, motivating, and come from a wide range of diverse life paths.


Are educated in the subjects that they tutor

All of our tutors have higher education degrees, or are currently pursuing their University degrees. We match students with tutors who can understand the breadth of their specific curriculum, and support them in their academic pursuits.


Undergo extensive training and mentorships

Our tutors are employees rather than contractors, and we invest a vast amount of time and resources into their professional development — In fact, the yearly 25 hours of required in-house training is the most rigorous development programme of any tutoring company in New Zealand.

Profile Preview

We email you the professional profile of the tutor/s who we think will be the best fit for your child.

Tutor Introduction

After you register, the tutor will get in touch with you to organise the first lesson.


First Lesson

We won’t charge you for the package of your choice unless you are happy after the first initial lesson.
