Our Happy Students

Ted, you are an exceptional educator, an incredible motivator and a kind-hearted gentleman. Any child lucky enough to work with you is truly blessed. When it comes to children who don’t fit the box, you have insight and understanding in abundance.

‘Miss E’ was so excited to tell me that in her Maths class this week, they were working on something her tutor had also been working on with her and she knew how to do it AND she could also try to help her classmates who were struggling with it. It was so lovely to see her confident about Maths. She has made such great progress and you are so wonderful with her. I absolutely made the right decision using your services, Ted. I can’t thank you both enough. 

Thank you for your amazing support for ‘Miss A’  over the past few months.  Although she mentioned to me that she is not interested in Maths, I could see her excitement when she passed Maths this semester.

I would like to say thank you to Ted and to our tutor for helping ‘Master L’ with his grades. He was getting two or three words per week out of 20 for spelling, but with the tutor he has been getting around 16 out of 20.

I need to let you know that ‘Miss G’ and our tutor are a great team. ‘Miss G’ is so confident heading into her exams.

I want to thank you and your team for your amazing work and care. ‘Miss S’ received B’s and C’s across her report card. An incredible and fantastic leap in results and it would not have happened without you and your team’s expertise and our tutors amazing patience. Thank you, from us!

Good news! ‘Miss C’ got her Maths results yesterday. She got an A- for her assignment and a B for her exam. She is very happy with her results. Thanks for all your help this term she said it’s what helped her the most.

‘Miss E’ has definitely made progress and caught up when it comes to her Maths. Thanks to you and to our tutor!!! ‘Miss E’  is enjoying her new found confidence in Maths!!

Thank you for Miss ‘I’s’ extra Maths tute. This made a huge difference to her preparation and confidence leading into the exam. Thank you!

My 11 year old ASD girl just had a fantastic Zoom tutor session with Mr Carter.

Ted Carter is AMAZING! He gave up so much time to coach my ASD/ADHD son and tailored the game (chess) to suit him. We moved schools but Ted still keeps in touch with us and checks in on my son.

Ted is next level! We HIGHLY recommend him for his ability to work across so many different learning styles and needs!!

Amazing how far a bit of ‘encouragement’ can go! Thank you for everything this term, the confidence has definitely carried over to all areas for ‘Miss E’.

Thank you for your amazing support and guidance for ‘Mr Y’ this past term! We love having you by our side! ‘Mr Y’ asked me to let you know that he received an A+ for his English poetry portfolio! He worked extremely hard and only did so because you inspire him!! Thank you!!

Just letting you know ‘Miss C’ came home very proud after getting a B on her maths exam.

‘Mr J’ got a B- for his maths. From a D to that! Thought I’d share the excitement the family is having at the moment!

Hi Ted, just wanted to send a message to say how perfect Maarten is for ‘Mr J’. ‘Mr J’ never gets excited about anything to do with school and when Maarten left he raced back to the kitchen and said, “Mum he helped so much and really knows how school works.”

I finally feel like we might have a real chance for him to pass some subjects he usually wouldn’t. Brilliant! Feeling so positive about it. Thank you so much.

‘Miss H’ is completing Year 8 with an Academic Bronze Award and Principal’s Award for Academic Endeavour.
