Customer Reviews

We’re so proud to have worked with many different parents and students. Here’s what a few of them have said about us!


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.

Estelle is such a lovely girl, very patient with kids, professional and very good at what she teaches. My grade 3 kids love her and we are happy with her Maths tutoring.

We have found that Smart Start Learning is a very professional and well organised company that understands that families with children who require extra assistance can benefit from a quality tutor.  I have found the communication with the company is excellent and responsive.

Prerna has been tutoring my son for a few months now and we have seen such an improvement in the speed in which he can solve math problems and most importantly his confidence.  He actually looks forward to her arrival and is completely engaged for the whole hour. Prerna always goes the extra mile and will bring resources and games to help enhance my son’s learning experience.  My son was very fortunate to be honoured with a Principal’s award for the improvement he has shown in mathematics in this short time. Prerna is a consummate professional who always arrives on time with a smile on her face.

Cannot speak highly enough of Helen!
Shelby had a ‘no care’ factor when it came to math as she was so far behind she had given up and her sentencing structure wasn’t far behind . Helen recognized Shelby learnt in a different way and managed her study session around that. Now Shelby ‘gets it’ and is moving forward at a rapid rate. The growing confidence Shelby now has with math and english is amazing and her smile says it all. All this because Helen took the time to get to know Shelby and adapt her sessions to allow her to confidently move forward with a greater understanding. Helen is now part of our family haha THANK YOU  will never be enough!!

Estelle came recommended to me via another tutoring company as they do not tutor primary age students, and my daughter and I are extremely happy with her progress in maths, Estelle is very professional, easy going, patient and most of all as my daughter says ‘explains things so I understand ‘. So very happy indeed!!

Estelle is an amazing tutor. We are so happy with what my son has been taught so far. She is engaging and makes the tutorials fun. We really needed Estelle and she has been just what my son needed. We cannot thank her enough.

– Louise


My 7 year old son had been having trouble with his literacy. I knew that he needed to work with someone one on one. I had heard great things about Estelle, so she started working with him a couple of months ago. In that time, I have seen such a dramatic change in his reading. It is so wonderful to see. I can’t thank Estelle enough for her dedication and patience. I would recommend her to anyone who has a little one who needs help.

Thank You so much for the great tutoring sessions Helen! They have been an excellent help to Andre which he really has enjoyed. He is getting better at developing his letters and is developing great interpersonal skills. Thanks also for your professionalism and always arriving on time.
