WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING


     "My son received a FULL scholarship to Sydney Grammar School in 2018 worth $240 000!

We are blessed and so thankful to Amber!"

Parent - Year 6 student


I can clearly see the impact Amber has had on our kids these past 6 months.

I highly recommend Amber's incredibly detailed and technical writing course, the school holiday workshops or private tuition.

The way Amber teaches is not like your typical teacher.

She is passionate, detailed, and extremely knowledgeable and will inspire and engage your child like no other. 

Our kids always leave her buzzing with ideas and inspiration. 

Thank you so much Amber for bringing out the very best in our children.

I’m thrilled we have found such a high level of teaching support for our kids now in primary and well into high school.  

Ray - Parent of Year 4 and 5 students



I just received mid-year reports and both children (Y5 and Y4) earned the best results in English they have ever had. 
One child topped out English with an almost perfect score across all areas. The other, not far behind.  
Each child earned a personal best since starting school.  
I was so impressed to see how much they had improved over the space of 6 months. 
Thank you Amber.
