Guaranteed Personalised programs
Every child is different and needs a different focus or approach to help them learn. Every one of our students has an individualised approach, based on what they are studying, their challenges and where they would like to have help. This extends to selecting a tutor that will best fit your child’s individual needs.
What to expect
Your goal is to improve the academic performance of your child. Our goal is the same, but we also seek to give students the skills and tools they need to continue to do well. With English, a degree of enquiry and ability to think critically is essential and we focus on building these strengths and the child’s confidence.
We also cover the fundamentals of understanding of a variety of essay formats and to be clear in their spelling, punctuation, and grammar.
You will also have the comfort of a dedicated client manager, so you will have regular contact with us to discuss progress and make the absolute best of your investment with one of our tutors.

VCE English Tutoring
English tutoring for Year 10 and VCE students can be a significant determining factor in achieving high VCE scores.
VCE English involves Literature Studies, in which students must write essays demonstrating their understanding of the text and be critical in their response. This also involves aspects of language analysis, as well as standard literacy skills such as spelling and grammar. Many students can have trouble with essay construction, gathering and formulating their ideas and analysing the language of the text. These are all areas that can be greatly improved with additional tuition.
The Tutoring Company understands the importance of specialised tutoring for VCE students, which is why we only employ specialist VCE English tutors. Tutors are qualified teachers or undergraduates with specific experience in tutoring VCE students. They are highly skilled in their pursuits and therefore focus solely on tutoring English to their students.
All tutors have a very clear understanding of The Australian Curriculum and know what assessors are looking for. All tutors have a current Working with Children Check or VIT registration.
