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

  • My daughter has gained so much from her time with ACES. I saw her confidence grow throughout the past four years, and along with it her knowledge and understanding of mathematics concepts and their application. Her tutor built a strong relationship based on trust which enabled her to ask questions and explore the unknown. Thank you for being so supportive and understanding and for creating such a fantastic resource for the many students who you all inspire.

  • Thank you never seems enough when we receive such wonderful updates. His confidence just seems to be going from strength to strength. His results are testament to the hard work he has been doing and credit so much of this to the help he has received from and at ACES. I find his math results amazing given how he struggled three years ago.
