FAQs

  • What age of students do you tutor?

    Students between the ages of 6 and 18 years are referred by teachers, doctors, psychologists, other agencies and organisations. Students are informally assessed at our clinic before commencing tuition to ensure the best possible tutor fit.
  • What are your hours of operation?

    ACES [Inc.] hours of operation are 7 am to 8pm, Monday to Thursday, 7 am to 6 pm on Friday and Saturday 8am to 4pm during school terms. Specialist holiday programs are conducted in January and other holiday tuition is subject to negotiation.
  • How often do students attend?

    Once accepted, students are given between one and three, one-hour sessions per week. Students with more severe learning disorders often require specialist tuition for a number of years. As students develop and progress, their contact hours are lowered until they can eventually cope without specialist tuition. Some students may continue with irregular sessions to ease their transition to independent study.
  • What are the fees?

    Fees are charged on a per term basis, based on a rate of $80 per hour. In the case of financial hardship, an application for special consideration can be lodged with the ACES [Inc.] committee.
  • How do you monitor progress?

    A student’s progress is meticulously monitored and recorded every session. Individual programs are regularly reviewed and modified as required. Continual feedback between the school performance and each student’s clinic work is achieved through debriefing the parents at the end of each session and liaising with schools and other professionals wherever possible. End of semester reports are provided for all students. Formal progress reports can be requested for an additional fee.
  • Where are the tuition sessions conducted?

    We operate from a convenient location adjacent to Claremont Quarter on Gugeri Street. Students unable to attend the clinic can receive tuition by personal video-conferencing via a privately hosted live streaming application. This can easily be accessed from a home or school PC (no specialist software is required). To ensure quality control of tuition, ACES (Inc.) does not provide lessons at private homes.

Testimonials

  • I can see the massive improvements my daughter is making and the change quality tutoring has made to her confidence levels. She walks out of both tutoring sessions, English and Science, filled with deeper understanding of the topic taught and belief in herself. She is working hard to put all that she has learnt into her school work. We can’t believe the difference it has made and are truly thankful for the help and support she receives form her fantastic tutors.

  • I just wanted to share some good news. We sought tutoring for our daughter as she attained 36% in the standardised maths test at the end of last year. They completed a similar test in the first week of school this year and she earned 71%. Thanks for all your help it has obviously worked miracles.

    - Parent of Year 5 student, 2019

  • We have seen the benefits over the last few years and have witnessed great improvement in our son's English and Maths. I would hate to think where he would be, if we had never had him at ACES. It is hard to believe that he has been coming to ACES for almost 4 years now. His tutor has the patience of a saint, and the great rapport between her and our son has, I am sure, been a major factor helping in his engagement. All the tutors have worked really well with him and we would just like to take this moment to thank you for your outstanding service.
