Private Tutition

: | : |   :

We also provide both private (1:1) and group (1:2 or 1:3) tuition. If you’re after a need-based individual type experience, such as assistance with laboratory write-ups, then we recommend 1:1.

However, if you’re able to gather a group of school friends or colleagues with a common study goal, then we can tailor a group tuition session to help everyone achieve.

For more information and prices, please see our private tuition page.

"It was very fun to learn HSC Physics in group from John’s Academy with my other Grammar friends. John is the best physics teacher I have ever met. I have always told him to become our school’s physics teacher. His teaching is very interesting and each to understand"

"John made maths so easy for me. During my course, I had been struggling to understand some courses involving calculations and unit conversions. Then I tried John’s tutoring and it all became so easy and clear. I was able to pass my course with very high marks."

- Maile
University of Canberra Nursing

"John would have to be the best maths tutor I’ve ever had. In preparation for my postgraduate degree entry exam (also known as the GRE), I approached John for help with my maths. Initially I was very nervous because I hadn’t studied maths in ten years’, however within three months’ of John’s tuition, I was able to reach my target score. John is clear and concise in imparting his understanding of mathematics and I would highly recommend him as a tutor."
