What Our Students Are Saying About Us



"I got my score and I’m really happy with it! In French I got a raw 41 which scaled to a 49.56 and my ATAR was 97.85, which is higher than what I need for my course. We are all very relieved 🙂 thank you so much for your teaching over the past few years- it has been amazingly helpful!!"


"Thank you so much for supporting my daughter on her path to VCE! We really appreciate your hard work and your friendly support! She will keep up with her French for sure. She loves it! She already said that she will arrange some lessons with you next year. She really enjoyed her weekly meetings with you."


"I am quite content with my ATAR. My French score, I am happy with as well. It was only just short of my goal of 35 and it still scales to above 40, one of the many benefits of doing VCE French. I can’t thank you enough for your help and having you as my tutor definitely saved me this year."


"I am very happy. I ended up getting a 6 in French which is so much higher than I thought I would have. Thank you so much for all of your help this year!! I couldn’t have done it without you."
