Caring, dedicated tutors that help make my kids shine! 

My children have a lovely rapport with their wonderful tutor Tess and have made great progress in maths. With one-on-one lessons, Tess was able to understand their individual weaknesses and how to best help them.

Whether you have a child that is struggling or if they simply want to do better, give Sandy and her team a call at Hands Up Tuition!

Sandy and her team, at Hands Up for One to One Tuition, have played a significant role in nurturing Emmanuel’s school journey. The lessons began when he was in primary school, where he needed assistance in the areas of reading, writing and comprehension. The relationship continued right through to Year 12. Over the years, Sandy worked with Emmanuel and his schools in tailoring the lessons, in order to meet the various learning milestones. She provided regular updates to us parents and made recommendations where needed. She was patient with Emmanuel and knew what type of help he needed at the various stages of school life. She ensured that Emmanuel received the most qualified teacher to assist him. This was particularly so, in his high school years, where Tess and Emily worked with him in preparation for the English syllabus for the Higher School Certification. Despite the disruption to the school life which the pandemic presented, through zoom sessions, Emmanuel diligently continued his lessons with Emily. Come HSC time, Emmanuel’s confidence grew and he felt well prepared for the English exams. All the hard work paid off. His results for the HSC, exceeded all our expectations.

We are so grateful to Sandy for developing his confidence and instil belief in his abilities. I strongly recommend Sandy and her team, at Hands Up for One to One Tuition.

Kind regards
