Sometimes, all it takes is just a little extra support to get the breakthrough you need.
Atea College is offering focussed after school tuition. Our current sessions focus on ‘face-to-face’ tutoring of the core competencies, Mathematics, English and Science. All our tutors are registered teachers with experience and expertise in making complex ideas simple.
Our current sessions are for Year 6-10 students. Tutorials for Year 11-13 students and in other subjects may be available on request, so please enquire.
Public buses and trains stop relatively close to our school in Panmure.
Tuition is offered in one of two sessions: 3:30-4:30pm and 4.30-5.30pm, Monday to Friday. The scheduling of any tuition session depends on a minimum of students attending. Lessons must be booked in blocks of at least five.
You can expect to pay $25 for additional resources again after ten weeks' of tutoring.
Parents are welcome to sit in on the sessions and can be briefed after each lesson.
Each student will be given a tutoring homework book for any take-home work.
1. Can my child bring homework from school?
We encourage you to bring school work that your child is struggling with, or if your child’s teacher wants to give information on what they would appreciate us to work on, we are open to that as well.
2. Can I choose which tutor my child will work with?
No. We will keep an eye on the overall direction and strategy for enhancing your child’s tuition, and will ensure all tutors are working towards common goals for your child. If you wish to book a particular tutor, you may need to speak to us about the cost of booking a specific tutor in a one to one session.
3. What if my child misses a lesson. Can I get a refund?
Unfortunately, we cannot refund missed lessons. If you know you are going to be away on a certain week, please inform us when you book your set of five lessons.
