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.

    - Parent of graduating student, 2018

  • 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.

    - Parent of Yr 12 boy, May 2018

  • My daughter's maths teacher said she was very pleased with her mental strategies, I told her it was her wonderful maths tutor who has been working very hard on this area. It is clearly paying off so thank you!
