Testimonials

We love to hear the positive effects we’re having on students and families, and we’re proud to share this praise. Student names have been changed.

Thank you so much for your work with Jamie.   He really enjoys himself and we are so relieved to have him come home energised and, most importantly, engaged. His comments to us, "that's how education should be".

Many thanks for your continued support and encouragement to Jane as she enters her final term for Year 12. It has taken several years for Jess to be able to accept/ask for help with her studies. A very big thank you both, you are valued and appreciated.

I would like to say thank you for everything you have shown Brayden over the last 6 months. He seems more confident and I’m pleased to say that he received a B for maths this term – a remarkable improvement. Thanks again.

Thank you for an amazing schooling life at ELC. Words cannot describe how much it has enhanced both my schoolwork and personal development into a young adult. We always had great fun together too, and for that I wanted to say a massive thank-you.

We are enjoying coming to your centre, and Jason will miss you guys over the holidays. His teacher said his maths is improving due to attending ELC, so it's a credit to you guys in all that you do there. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

George is so looking forward to next week rather than being stressed, so that is so good. We so appreciate your take on things and the manner in which we have prepared for these examinations. It has been a real adventure and a delight in the process, and all due to your wonderful guidance with everything. I am so, so grateful to you and Leo. Words just do not cut it, but know from the heart.

Thanks again. Last week he came out of the lesson really happy and said that he had learnt a lot. He was so pleased that he had a young lady helping him throughout the lesson who explained everything to him really well. He was so chuffed with himself last week. He wanted to tell me everything he had learnt. He also told me, that was the best day he has had there since joining.

Thank you, Leo. I am happy at how organised Anna has become and she really is trying hard. PS I met with ACE maths teacher – she is impressed with Zain’s eagerness and knowledge. Thank you all.

I have never forgotten your extraordinary kindness to our family, and wisdom and insight. It is amazing to realise that the school we had put so much faith in was also holding our gal back in so many ways, but luckily for us we had the opportunity to give life another go and it has really paid off. I saw another one of your students the other day, Darcy. She is going really well at Uni and is such a great kid – it was her mum that told me to find you – she is now an amazing young woman and I know you also played a part in that change as well. Thank you for being such an amazing human being, I hope you are still teaching kids and having a great life. Would love to hear from you sometime.

I loved how eager he was to go last week and the beaming smile. He was so happy when I picked him up. He tells everyone that he loves coming to see Dan and Leo. He is loving his sight words.  He is starting to take pride in his work. I appreciate what you guys have done for David. At the start of last year David was less engaged than Eliza is. He wouldn't hold a pencil or write or even look at a page.

Just a quick thank you from Kim and me as Lachlan just scored an A- on his latest Maths assessment. He is chuffed, as are we. Thank you. He has not once said that he doesn't want to go to ELC on a Thursday and it is a credit to your guys and what you provide as inspiration for him.

Thanks very much for allowing Travis to have double lessons near his exam time and for accommodating day changes to suit these exams. I think it has made a big difference to his results. He has just received his Maths B result which was an A+. He improved his English last term from a C to an A and his Graphics was also an A+. The troubling subject is Chemistry, which has to do with "Why should I be doing this subject?" He told me that his school Chemistry teacher said he "overthinks" his work. But he said he had good support at ELC from one of your staff who explained the Chemistry in an easy to understand way.

Your contribution to that is not forgotten and appreciated so much. I can not thank you both enough for your support and sharing of your time and wisdom with the lad. It will take him far, and I know he holds the experience he had there with you both very dear. As do I.

We wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for the effort that you and your team have displayed towards Louis this year. He really does enjoy the environment at ELC and has a newfound confidence at school. Once again a big Thank You and we look forward to seeing you next year.

Peta had a very enjoyable time last Wednesday. Apparently she was involved in a debate about how much to write in her English assignment. She came home very elated and obviously enjoyed the discussion. She wants to continue next term.

Thank you! Jemima said she loves to be able to understand her maths homework.  She comes home very happy, usually singing on the way home, so all is good.

I wanted to thank you and your team for your continued great work with Sarah! She just brought home an ‘A’ for a result in Literature, which I read and asked her comprehension questions about prior to handing it in. I am completely across the work and the teaching of understanding to Sarah that you and the team put in. Which is so important. She understood her work completely. Thank you. She has come a long way in just over 12 months and was completely prepared for High School. Her results are continuing to improve. Thank You, Leo, for all you give to Sarah and my family.

Thanks for making such an impression on the girls today. They all left on a high and really enjoyed their time with you. It is a real novelty for them to receive homework and they have completed their tasks already. Hopefully this enthusiasm continues! Looking forward to next week.

The boys are doing very well! They both now love their maths and are both in the top level extension maths classes in their grades. Thank you for helping to foster their confidence. With Evan about to start Year 7, we are looking forward to watching what the next few years will bring.

Words cannot say how wholeheartedly grateful I am to you generosity and support with teaching Jemma and Pia. I realise how much they enjoy learning at ELC, the attitude they come home with and the level of comfort, support and well-being I and they feel. I continue to learn from you and grow, just like my children.

Your feedback has been really valuable. Adam is finding ELC really valuable. He assures me that he has "nailed" his maths exam :-). I am really happy to hear that he is talking to you about these things. I fully understand that kids his age, don't always want to talk about everything with their parents. It is reassuring that he is more than happy to talk to you, knowing that you are so experienced in dealing with kids his age, facing similar dilemmas. It's a shame there is not an ELC-style facility for parents of teenagers. I'd be signing up in a heartbeat!

I want to thank you for the effort and energy you are putting into Tim. I am really happy that he is able to talk to you about his future, and coming to see you has kept him on track. It is really difficult for me to know where he is at (I guess most mothers of teenage boys would say the same), so having your support has certainly reduced my stress. Thank you again for your input with my son. I appreciate it more than you could know.

Your work with Anna has been outstanding and came at a difficult time of school transition for Anna. I believe you have played a CRITICAL role in Anna’s perception of herself as a capable and clever learner.
