Prep - Grade 6 tutoring

Our tutors are experts in tutoring primary school students in Reading, Writing and Maths. If your child has a hard time in any of these areas, we’re here to help.

We come to you

Our tutors come to your house. No more running around to learning centres or a tutor’s place – just relax and book your tutor to come whenever suits you.

Amazing team of tutors

Our team of tutors is absolutely amazing and nurturing. We only hire tutors we believe can connect strongly with your child and help them through their struggles at school.

You're in safe hands

A Working With Children Check is a MUST for every one of our team members. Each tutor goes through a strict interview process to make sure they are perfect for your child.

No lock-in contracts

We don’t like lock-in contracts, and we’re sure you don’t either! When working with one of our tutors, you won’t be locked in for a certain number of sessions; just book them in weekly as needed.

Payments made easy

Our scheduling system allows you to pay automatically via credit or debit card after each session through our secure merchant processor. No more invoices, no more getting cash out, just easy automated payments.


“Estelle is fantastic. She is so patient and encouraging, and she really knows how to connect with her students. Her passion certainly shows in the work she puts in every week! I have seen such improvements with my son not only in his work but confidence too – best thing we did! Highly recommend.”

– Shireen

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How much do you charge for private tutoring? A: We charge $50/hour for in-home, private tutoring. The tutor will come to your house at a time that's convenient to you.

Q: How often do the tutoring sessions happen and how long do they go for? A: One hour per week is what 95% of our students do, and this is what we recommend. Concentration levels tend to plummet after this and we want to make sure your child is enjoying the session and getting the most out of it!

Q: Who are your tutors? A: In short, our tutors are awesome people! We only hire tutors who have a fantastic ability to connect emotionally with their students. We hire university students and current teachers. Every student learns differently, so we have a range of team members available to help your child.

Q: What happens in a session? A: Whatever needs to happen in order to help your child through their struggles, whether that is math games, reading practice or writing exercises. In our initial phone call, we'll establish exactly what you're looking for and in the first session we can expand on that to create a customised program for your child.

Q: Which areas do you service? A: We're based in Melbourne. We service all suburbs in Melbourne - please contact us if you're not sure if we have tutors in your area!
