We Get Your Challenges
Constant Communication, Constant Support
One of the fundamental principles of our approach to tutoring is the “child’s support network”. Your child needs the support and influence of the school, teachers, peers, parents, and tutors to thrive. This means additional support from tutors to support:
- Empowering your child with academic strategies
- Building metacognitive skills
- Overseeing homework and study
- Acting as a cheerleader
- Providing positive influence
- Providing mentoring
Our Transformer Program at Good News
A Team Tuition provides Good News Lutheran College with highly engaging and effective tutoring assistance before and after school. The tutoring provides academic and metacognitive support to selected students from Grade 4 - Year 11. The program is in place to improve your child’s confidence, motivation, and grades by developing their mindset, strategy, and even more support.
The Academic Personal Trainers deliver the A Team Advantage program with the students in Years 7-9. This focuses on empowering students with the metacognitive and academic skills to succeed.
Students in Years 4-11 receive homework and subject specific support from the Academic Personal Trainers. The A Team Tuition tutoring approach supports the curriculum students are covering in classes while also building on other skills your child needs to succeed.

... What Our Clients Have To Say ...
My daughter Maddie was really impressed with her first session with her tutor, Derek. She said Derek was excellent and there was just no comparison with her last tutor. He is a lovely young man and completely put Maddie at ease. Her mood totally changed between the time before the tutorial to after. Thank you so much, and I can’t wait to see what they accomplish.
“Archie’s tutor, Amber, was well organised, communicated clearly and took the time to get to know Archie through the session. Arch is looking forward to his next session with Amber.”
“I am very impressed with our tutor, Elaine, and her approach, and we are grateful for her detailed feedback. I actually mentioned to my husband that this is more concrete and helpful feedback than we have ever received from his teachers. I definitely recognise my son in her comments and think that her observations were spot on. In particular, that he struggles with inferences and that his problem-solving approach could be simplified.
My son worked really well with her and I think that he can learn a lot from Elaine! We are looking forward to the next session”
In our experience, what we have found is the A-Team are prepared to be flexible (they really do look to provide the right tutor to the student) and are genuinely committed. A-Team are able to mentor and develop other key forms of aptitude, including emotional and social forms of intelligence.
Alongside greatly encouraging improvement in his academic results, the most outstanding and important outcome has been enhancement of his self-motivation and drive, and even more importantly, development of his self-confidence.
