Our Teachers

We hand-pick each of our teachers ensuring that they not only have the necessary qualifications, skills, experience and passion; but that distinctive flare that only great teachers possess.

Our teachers will prepare and provide course material and notes for students that are designed to support past exam papers. We don’t hand out stacks of a top mark sample answers for students to study and regurgitate. Instead, we aim to enhance a students understanding so that they are best equipped to answer the questions.

We cater to students of all abilities, from those struggling to pass to those pushing for top results, and keep our student to teacher ratio low to ensure a level of attention that is unmatched in this space.
