The Wilderness School
Our Commitment to Parents
We’re here to support your child, not only academically but to stay focused, motivated and excited by learning. We’re here to provide study support, when you can’t be there.
We work with child psychologists, education experts, and The Wilderness School to deliver tutoring strategies that develop "A-grade" learning skills. We then carefully select, train and support all our Adelaide primary and high school tutors to create the optimum study strategy for your child.
Help your child meet their full potential!
We Get Your Challenges
Whether the child is “embracing parent-free freedom” at the cost of their grades, or missing home too much to focus, our team is carefully trained to identify psychological barriers and overcome them.
We then roll out a study strategy for your child that includes time spent on attitude, mindset and emotional wellbeing.
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. In a boarding house, this means additional support from tutors to support the parent’s key roles:
- Overseeing homework and study at home
- Acting as a cheerleader
- Providing positive influence
- Providing mentoring
- Assisting in navigating social and emotional situations
We liaise with your child’s support network to ensure there are no gaps and provide feedback and communication with the whole network – so your child’s educational needs are seamlessly met.
Our Transformer Prep Program at Wilderness
We provide The Wilderness School students with highly engaging and effective tutoring assistance during the students’ Boarding Prep time. The Transformer Prep Program is provided to year 7, 8, & 9 students along with providing homework assistance. The Transformer Prep program is a carefully tailored program designed to improve your child’s confidence, motivation, and grades by developing their mindset, strategy and support during their most crucial years. We provide weekly challenges to capture the classroom, as well as end-of-term activities that will become a highlight of boarding life and deliver content based on school curriculum and “A” grade study strategies.

... What Our Clients Have To Say ...
Lydia has been a wonderful tutor for Felix. She has a great manner and is excellent at teaching content across a number of subjects. She has also been a supportive coach and mentor to Felix, helping with exam techniques and building confidence. She always brings positivity, encouragement and good humour. We feel really lucky to have had her support and know she has made an enormous difference to how years 11 and 12 have felt and the results that he has achieved.
“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 share my deep gratitude to your team. Our son Hudson is flourishing! His step is lighter, he laughs, and his confidence within himself is growing. This is all because of Mitch! Mitch has built a safe learning relationship and Hudson is thriving! Thank you!
Hudson thinks Mitch is a Legend! We are so grateful to Mitch, your team and so happy for Hudson.
“I am very happy with how the sessions are going. Avalon was sitting on a D to C and just received a B- in Math! Her teacher marked improvement with both maths and confidence. Our tutor, Andrew, takes the time to discuss and draw out of Avalon what she understands and also struggles with. He is very patient and takes time to repeat things. She loves how he gets her to repeat back what he is teaching her to ensure she understands, as she normally is too shy to say. He has great communication skills and he somehow gets through to her as she is difficult to read. All round a lovely young man.”
