What’s your approach?
Our approach is highly personalised and customised based on your specific needs. We believe in the value of 1-on-1 tutor-student interaction, prioritising quality over quantity. Our philosophy is simple: fewer students, more quality time, more meaningful learning that results in real-world impact. In short, it’s all about you and your personal learning needs.
How do we work together?
We understand that you’re probably very time-poor while undertaking your postgraduate degree, likely juggling full-time employment with study, family and life. For this reason, we offer very flexible working arrangements at times that suit you, whether this means first thing in the morning, over lunch, or late at night. We typically use Skype (with screen sharing and session recording), but can also offer in-person tutoring depending on your location.
How much does it cost?
Our pricing is hour-based and completely flexible. You decide how much you want to engage with us and when – there are no minimums and no long-term commitments. You can view the full details here.
