WHO ARE WE?
We are a group of experienced and dedicated individuals offering private and group tutoring in a variety of areas including mathematics, statistics, data analytics, physics, chemistry, biology, English, literature, Mandarin, and others.
All tutors have Working With Children Checks. We offer in-person and online services.
This company was founded on the philosophy that a tutor must teach a student how to learn and be independent. A good tutor will work themselves out of a job.
What sets us apart? We look after our students needs both within sessions and between them. That is why parents and students will always have access to on call help (general and academic) outside of sessions, as well as access to our library of resources. Unlike other tutoring agencies, we have an elaborate feedback and communication system that ensures that the student, tutor, parents, and Sutton Education are all on the same page about the progress and needs of the student.
Disclaimer: All tutors are contractors with their own Australian Business Numbers.
