THE ACES POEM: I’ve been going to ACES for five long years, Maths and English have been whispered in my ears. I’ve been learning so much I’m turning into a book, If you’re having trouble too come in and take a look. The teachers are great, and the food is good, I would be a tutor if I could. Even though they’re making me very clever, I hope I can stay forever.

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 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.

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.

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!

I just wanted to show you these results (OLNA) and thank you for all the hard work you put into helping my son achieve this. As you know small victories like this are massive milestones for students like him and it is just fantastic to know there are people out there supporting them!

We are so delighted with our child’s school results this year as he is working hard and we believe the tuition is certainly helping. We are very grateful to you all for your assistance.
I would like to take this opportunity of thanking you all for the help you have given my son this term. The improvement in his English and Maths is significant and is solely thanks to your hard work in helping him.
My daughter’s marks in Applications have improved immensely. She reports that tuition has played a significant part in her improved performances.
My son is really enjoying the lessons and apparently, The tutors at ACES just get me.
My daughter has settled in well and is really enjoying her tutoring and even seems to like the homework!
His teacher had noticed a huge improvement in his literacy and said that, whatever you are doing, keep doing it as it is working!
Shenton College sent out a letter to of commendation to the parents of one of our students, congratulating him on his efforts in English. Mum forwarded the letter to ACES along with this comment: Our tutor is doing a wonderful job with her continual efforts to encourage my son.
Since we started with you a couple of years ago my daughter’s results have approximately doubled, and for this we're really appreciative.
We are very impressed with your professionalism and dedication to students shown by yourself and all your staff. We were so lucky to have found you.
Our ACES tutor has been the most amazing support for my daughter and has a lovely calm way of explaining things. She is the most brilliant role model to my daughter and has played a major part in the increase we have seen in her self-esteem this year.
We have a fridge full of very interesting project pieces that she produced with you at ACES. Your focus on the foundations, scaffolding of her work and tapping into her interests was very intuitive. You also seem to have a real feel for how far to push her, whilst keeping her engaged. You have made her time at ACES productive and meaningful.
Thank you for the last 4 years with all the time and effort put into building my skills and confidence. The last 4 years you have made tutoring interesting and enjoyable.

A big thank you for all your help, understanding, patience and caring. Our daughter really couldn’t have achieved it (Year 12 graduation) without you. Her change in attitude was evident and I want you to take credit where it is due.
