“Hi Melanie,

Just thought I would let you know Ryan’s results for NCEA. Ryan was endorsed overall in Merit. He got individual subject endorsements as well. He passed every external which was amazing considering he was so sick! So proud of him.

With the subjects Hayden helped Ryan in I couldn’t believe he got a Merit in Mechanics because he failed his practice exam and he had found the subject difficult.

Maths Excellence in Chance and Data and the rest Merits.

Thank you to Hayden for all his hard work. Would highly recommend him as a tutor. Thank you to you also, you are amazing.

Thanking you and Hayden,
Kerrie and Ryan.”

“Good Evening Melanie,

Thank you for your best wishes to Claudia which I will pass on. Claudia has really benefited and enjoyed her tuition with Anna and will continue to use Anna with further studies in the future.

Claudia has already passed Level 2 with Merit so it's just a matter of subject endorsements now. Good to get this fantastic news prior to sitting the actual exams! I'm very proud of Claudia. 

Thanks again, been well worth it!

Kind regards, Victoria”

“Hi Melanie

We really want to say thank you for your professional and friendly service. The tuition has certainly helped Benjamin to achieve better in Physics and Maths. He really does struggle with his learning and we were encouraging him to tackle these tricky subjects to allow him to achieve in these UE subjects.

Please pass onto James that he has been amazing and Benjamin really enjoyed receiving tuition from him. He was very good at encouraging and teaching Ben at Ben's level of understanding.

Many thanks, Sarah”

“Please thank the tutors very much from both Josh and myself. Josh has said they have been incredibly helpful over this past year, the difference between Merit and Excellence.

Thank you for your assistance over the past years with both Josh and Matt, it has been invaluable.

Kind Regards, Cate”

“Hi Melanie

Having Aria as Mackenzie's tutor for Maths has been the best decision - it has made a huge difference to her understanding of the topic. This has shown up in her confidence and been reflected in her grades at school. One to one lessons has been the great benefit compared to the classroom where she struggled to get the teachers attention for most of the year. Mackenzie did well in her internal geometric reasoning exam and felt confident going into the end of year exam - however she said it was a strange exam compared to what they had been learning so end results will tell.

So please give Aria a huge thank you and we would love to have her time again next year. Overall I am pleased with your service and the reports provide Mackenzie with great support.

So best wishes for the end of the year and I will re-enrol for next year.

Many thanks, Bronwyn”
