 We approached Kate Wilson from Back to Basics Tuition when it became apparent to us that our son Kyle, then aged 10, was lagging well behind the school year “average” in his core subjects of Mathematics and English.

We asked Kate to appraise his understanding in these subjects and whether she would be able to help him improve his understanding of the curriculum.

Within the first session Kyle had with Kate, she was able to identify several key areas that Kyle needed improvement on and had devised a learning strategy, based on estimated hours, to achieve agreed learning targets.

Like most parents that contemplate tuition of some description, I had my concerns over the merits of “what was I getting for my money”.

Kyle was taught in a professional manner, personally attended to and provided with a positive learning experience from Kate.

She was firm but understanding with him, and Kyle developed a good rapport with her.

As a result of the tuition at Back to Basic Tuition, Kyle’s homework assignments became less of a concern for him to complete independent of our help and encouragement as his understanding grew of the subject matter. His overall confidence improved, and his willingness to approach new subject matter increased along with his new found self esteem. Kyle’s end of term results reflected the additional work he had put in with Kate and we were very satisfied as the results achieved exceeded the agreed learning targets.

As a testament to my belief in Kate’s efforts, we still have Kyle at Back to Basics from time to time. We have Kate do what we call an “educational check-up” of Kyle and book him in to “top-up” his understanding in subjects that he needs further improvement on.

Without hesitation we offer this as our testimonial, regards

Carole and Steve
