From Bernice Mene, (2016) NZ Silver Ferns (10 years) Mem. NZ Order of Merit

“I recommend KTL Tuition and Kidz Therapy often to friends and others as you really changed our lives.  The one-on-one tuition at KTL Tuition was integral to building up our son’s self-confidence, his belief in his ability to learn in a classroom as well as the skills to learn academically.  He told me he learnt everything from Ann last year in the one hour they had together each week.  What i loved is that he bounced out of their sessions with a smile on his face”.

“Our youngest son won’t need tutoring anymore as he is due to start at Aviation School.  Please pass on our thanks to all the tutors our four  kids have had over the past six years; they have all been fantastic” 2017.

“We are pleased to inform you that our daughter Sara successfully completed Year 13 of her studies with an overall NCEA Excellent endorsement.  May I say that it was most satisfying as Sara had returned after a year off from school and combined Year 12 and 13.  She is now off to study Pharmacy at the Uni of Sydney.  We wish to THANK all at KTL and especially Georgia for her tutoring skills” (David, 2017).

“I thought I would drop you a note to say Henry was endorsed with merit for both Maths and English (both subjects he has attended tutoring in)  He also managed overall Merit Endorsement so we are all very happy.  Many thanks to both Caitlin and Gabbi.  I love how Henry as a dyslexic pulled out all the stops and surprised everyone, he was congratulated personally at registration by a couple of teachers so I’m guessing a merit endorsement wasn’t actually expected.  Tim, his older brother has just completed his year at AUT with ‘As’ and ‘Bs’ so another one of your graduates doing well”  Mother of two son who have both attended KTL since 2011, 2017 

“I love the fact that KTL Tuition works alongside Kidz Therapy. Our sons both have dyslexia/dyspraxia and would not have achieved the academic and social success they have without KTL Tuition and Kidz Therapy support and guidance. It is the perfect ‘one-stop-shop’ for families”. (2014)

“Thank you so much for our boy’s successful year, he is a changed kid and we have seen our wee guy beam as he comes out of tutoring, thanks!” (2014)

“My son loves tutoring, it has a friendly atmosphere and very non-threatening environment, and while he will probably always struggle at schoole he is a much happier boy and always enthusiastic about attending his one-on-one teaching time.” (2015)

“I don’t know how we would have got our  daughter through NCEA Level 1, let along getting a Merit!  We nearly threw a party, we are just so happy with her results and she is so happy going back to school this year. I always tell people about KTL, thanks!” (2015)
“My tutor, is very smart but not only that he is a great guy.  He can break down the stuff i need to learn and i don’t feel stressed about asking him the same stuff over and over like i might at school.  He has taught me  me step-by-step, answered all my questions, and this makes me feel more confident”.  (2015)
“I feel so more confident at school, my marks have improved, even my teacher said “What have you been doing?” (2015)

Thank you so much so much, My son came back so enthusiastic-he didn’t stop talking about the course all the way back to the Shore. It sounds like the tutor was fantastic and really got the group inspired. Thank you (Lynn S, March 2013)
“I just didn’t know what how to study and I have found out that reading my notes is not the most effective way for me to study, I feel a lot happier that I now know how to study the way I should” (Joel, October 2012).
“It was just SO good, I am glad mum made me come on the course, I wasn’t keen but I have just learned so much today and am going to change the way I do things now” (Grace, October, 2012)
“ Marie thank you so much for organising your tutor to fly to New Plymouth to help our university son improve his essay writing skills. After meeting with you in December 2011, we knew this was just what he needed, I just wanted to let you know he received a Merit in his first essay at university, something we are so proud of, thank you again”
“I really liked the way we used the computers to research and find out information, I didn’t really know how to find the right stuff and used to spend hours wasting time – Now I know how to find the right information, I can do my assignments in much less time”, Olivia, July 2012.

“I didn’t expect to like it and learn so much!  The tutor taking the workshop knew what she was talking about.  It was good being in a group of kids in the same year group”. (2015)
“My son chatted all the way home after the study skills course – he’s not like this when I pick him after school!” (2015)
“I was able to bring along my essay to the workshop and Charlotte spent time with each of us during the day course to show us how to improve our essays using the skills and tips we had just learnt”. (2015)
“I have been to both courses and have been able to refer back to the booklet which was provided on the courses from time-to-time to provide help with my schoolwork”. (2015)
“My mum made me go to the study skills workshop – I did not want to go but ended up enjoying it and learning a few skills to make studying more effective”. (2015)
