  • Mahesh has been a terrific tutor for our son where we have seen amazing improvements in his approach to learning. My whole family enjoyed Mahesh's calm and kind presence in our home and we will miss seeing him weekly. Thank you for organising such a smooth partnership to help his learning. The admin staff should also be congratulated for their prompt and friendly service. I will recommend Tutoring for excellence if anyone asks for tutoring suggestions.

    Client L. Faulkner, Sydney, NSW
  • I also wanted to say thank you all so much for the opportunity to work for Tutoring For Excellence. I have worked for a tutoring organisaion previously and was amazed by the service and support I was getting in comparison. Everyone at the office is so kind and professional and even when I was finding that motivating some of my students difficult, I called the office and was given some great advice. I'm sorry to leave so soon but I wouldn't want to pass up a possible graduate opportunity. Thanks for everything!

    Client P. Distapan, Sydney, NSW
  • I would really like to say how wonderful Jason has been for our daughter, and if he is available for tutoring next year, I would really really really love to have him back for her again. He has a wonderful way with her and her results and confidence have improved. As she will be going into college, she will definitely need to continue with maths tutoring. Thank you for such a wonderful service.
    Client D. Thompson-Kennedy, Canberra, ACT
  • It has been a joy to work for TFE, and the experience has been wonderful. I am planning to do a Grad. Dipl. in Education after I graduate from my current course. I enjoy tutoring a lot, and this experience reinforced my love for tutoring
    Tutor J. Luo, Narwee, Sydney, NSW
  • I just wanted to let you know that my daughter's tutor is fantastic. She is really enjoying maths again and Pratiksha was a perfect choice to assist her. Thanks again.
    Client M. Moy, Banks, Canberra, ACT

    Tutor S. Browning, Bruce, ACT
  • I just felt I should give some feedback as people are usually so quick to complain and so slow with compliments. My son Josh got 53% in a test when we decided to get a tutor. We got Rachel and she was absolutely amazing. So focused, and covered so much. Josh really started to understand the things he had not understood before. Yesterday he told me that he really liked maths, and he was thinking about doing Accelerated maths at school next year. He got 93% in his last test. Thank you.
    Client D. Joffe, Lane Cove, Sydney, NSW
  • So far I have found Tutoring For Excellence to be very organised and supportive. My questions have been answered promptly and thoughtfully which has made starting out as a tutor very easy and enjoyable for me. Thank you Tutoring For Excellence.
    Tutor R. Paxton, Hill End, Brisbane, QLD
  • I would like to say how happy we are with the maths tutor Ben that you provided for us. He has been extremely patient and helpful, always on time and explains the solutions to Maths problem in a variey of ways so that my daughter feels like she can do the maths activities. I especially like the way Ben encourages Stephanie to use her intuition to solve maths problems and explains and writes down all the maths rules so that my daughter can revise them after the lesson. Thank you again for recommending this excellent tutor. .
    Client A. Ritherdon, Jerrabomberra, NSW
  • It is with sadness that I leave a role where I have worked with such a fantastic and supportive team. I have really enjoyed the variety of tasks and challenges in this job and have learned much about the industry. I'd like to extend a huge thanks to you and the rest of the management team for all you have done for me over the last few months.
    Tutor D. Lee, Jamboree Heights, QLD
  • Emma was very happy with the tutor as he was fresh out of high school last year he knew the curriculum. We have cancelled as she is has finished her trials and hopefully is on the right track for a good HSC result. Thank you.
    Client D. Jones, Wollongong, NSW
  • Good Morning ladies, Madison will no longer require tuition for English as she has just completed her grade 12 term three English exam and as next term is only 5 weeks for grade 12 she doesn't feel she requires 'tutoring for excellence' that term. Thank you for all your support over the years with my girls, the tutors have all been excellent. Thanking you.

    Client B. Jenkins, Concord, Sydney, NSW
  • Dear Tutoring For Excellence, Just a quick line to say how happy my daughter, Tess, and I were with Natalie who came to our house on Thursday to tutor Tess in maths. She was punctual, polite and a thoroughly lovely young lady. Tess feels that even in one session she has picked up in maths. Thank you for recommending her.
    Client M. Gugliotti, Miranda, Sydney, NSW
  • It has been a pleasure working with TFE, and I hope that there are no issues with reassigning my clients to other tutors.
    Tutor J. Baker, Brisbane, QLD
  • Hi David, just thought I'd let you know I passed with flying colours (credit colours anyway). I would like to thank you again for you help and tuition throughout the semester. I know that is your role, but I can safely say I would not have achieved my mark without your assistance. I will be sure to recommend you very highly if I get the opportunity with fellow students.
    Client M. Jones, Sydney, NSW
  • Jamie's tutor has helped Jamie significantly, as shown by an improvement in Jamie's understanding of the Maths topics covered in class. Stephen is very patient and is a great tutor.
    Client S. Simpson, Melbourne, VIC
  • I would just like to say thanks for finding me the perfect tutor. I went through numerous tutors and I couldn't find the perfect one! However, when I sought a tutor through TFE, you guys found the perfect tutor the first time. John, my tutor, is a great tutor - he is great at explaining things, easy to understand and most of all, knows how I like to be taught.
    Client T.Issar, Sydney, NSW
  • Just a courtesy note to let you know that we have finished up with Edward for the year. Without doubt we believe Edward helped our son Lachlan achieve improved results over the period he was being tutored. We shall definitely keep you in mind should we wish to tutor again.
    Client J Brunner, Summer Hill, NSW
  • I have enjoyed working for Tutoring For Excellence so much over the last two years, and feel that this position has improved my communication skills immensely (and kept my maths up to date!). It has also been fantastic to see students improve over time, both in terms of their marks on exams and in terms of confidence. Please let me know if there is anything I need to do to finalise this, but above all, thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to gain this experience. It's been great!
    Tutor C.Hamilton, Neutral Bay, NSW
  • Thank you for referring Alexander to us. Always reliable and punctual, Alexander worked patiently with my son on his Maths. Not only was his knowledge of the subject matter excellent, he was able to explain concepts in a way that my son could easily grasp. I would enthusiastically recommend Alexander to any potential employer.
    Client Mrs. Michel, Turramurra, NSW
  • I would like to say how impressed we were with Tammy who tutored our daughter with Advanced English. Although Tammy only worked with Alison for 10 weeks, her marks improved a lot and we feel that she genuinely cared about Alison reaching her goals. Thank you.
    Client Mrs. Sotheran, North Ryde, NSW
  • Thank you very much for your help and assistance over the past year. It has been a very rewarding experience and I've been most impressed with your organisations level of professionalism.
    Tutor T. Scott, Melbourne, VIC

    Client Ms. Leacock, Paddington, NSW
  • Peter is an excellent tutor, very knowledgeable and had a great rapport with Tom. I wouldn't have any hesitation in recommending Peter. Everyone I have dealt with has been extremely helpful.
    Client Mrs. Jacobs, Clovelly, NSW
  • I would like to thank 'Tutoring for Excellence' for their good employment conditions, and diligence in helping find new students for tutoring.
    Tutor D. Marcuson, Sydney, NSW
  • Thank you for the past few years, I've really enjoyed working for you. I feel it has been a valuable experience for me and I will certainly miss the job satisfaction, as I find tutoring completely different (and in some ways more rewarding) to classroom teaching.
    Tutor B.Murnane, Brisbane, QLD
  • It has been great working with the company and my leave is due to my taking up of a full-time job at Prince of Wales Hospital beginning in February as I have recently graduated from my physiotherapy degree. All the best in the future.

    Client Mr. Stankevicius, Quakers Hill, NSW
  • Staff have treated me excellently and have been very understanding of all situations including when I was sick and couldn't tutor for a couple of weeks. Sorry I won't be tutoring with TFE next year, I have thoroughly enjoyed the experience but want to pursue other things with my time next year.
    Tutor J.Vrachas, Sydney, NSW
  • David was a wonderful tutor and we would definitely use him again, should the situation arise. We would also not hesitate to recommend him to anyone who needed assistance with Maths tutorial and would also highly recommend your organisation, Tutoring for Excellence, who dealt with our difficult request promptly and with a positive outcome. Can you please pass on to David our thanks again for all his assistance, it was much appreciated.
