Term 3 2023:
- With few placements available, we recommend enquiring now to put your name down for placements as they open.
- Our program can provide:
- maths extension/acceleration,
- coaching/mentoring, and
- school content support in Maths, English, Science, etc
Preventing students from falling behind is so much better
(easier, cheaper, effective, fun, positive, engaging, encouraging)
than needing students catch up to everyone else.
Yes, we tutor. But more than tutoring or tuition, we can accelerate learning, manage schoolwork and coach students towards their potential!
We have NO year-level barriers to learning. Year-level boundaries are artificial!
Primary students especially have capacity to learn ahead of their curriculum, even into high school content, to reduce their future workload, keep them in higher maths streams, and keep more future pathways open to them! Learning ahead gives more ‘bank for you buck’ than remediation.
We teach better than an excellent school,
balancing 1-to-1 instruction with building independent learners.
Extended Learning Centres
We teach students individually-paced Australian core curriculum in a fun, nurturing environment that promotes confidence and self-reliance.
Our students are going places! We’re working towards their future career, lifestyle, choices, success and satisfaction.
Catch up! >> Keep up! >> Get ahead!
Why learn ahead of school?
Exposure to curriculum content ahead of school tremendously improves the effectiveness of learning in the classroom, student confidence and engagement in their own learning.
ELC students are enthusiastic to learn to the maximum of their ability. There are no year-level boundaries to limit learning, and no waiting for the rest of the class. Extended learning in their formative years smooths their path through high school and beyond.
Self-reliant and Confident Students
ELC coaches students to take learning into their own hands and take charge of their own future direction. More than simply content, we give students purpose, skills, guidance and support to reduce dependence on teachers.
Get more from your School
ELC helps school results by accelerating the core subjects ahead of school while supporting other subjects as needed. Then when they encounter a concept at school they can do it with confidence. We work on ‘playing the school game’ to make it work for students not against them.
More effective than tutoring
ELC’s method is more than tuition or tutoring because we teach ahead of school, rather than playing catch-up. We know the curriculum and the most important concepts that students will need to do well at school. We teach these before students encounter them at school.
Why is extended learning important for my child?
- To enable future choice of professions and enhance confidence and self-esteem, we accelerate learning to each student’s own potential in all areas, and particularly in mathematics.
- To get more from the school system, our tailored processes follow the same curriculum as taught in schools, but streamlined and personalised.
- Extended learning in their formative years smooths their path through high school, puberty and beyond.
- So that students dream their dreams and associate school and academics with greater future choice, we can engage the psychology of positive learning and modify student behaviour.
- To support students’ point-of-need learning from school when needed, our systems and processes allow us to incorporate school tasks while also learning for the future.
- To make family life simpler and less stressful, we holistically manage student learning in active partnership with families.
From Parents & Students
Thank you both for your support during these challenging times.
Due to ELC, Sigrid's schoolwork has significantly improved - she is a lot less anxious and is starting to enjoy school again.
We are so appreciative of your generosity and teaching skills.
Posey is really enjoying her time at ELC and has already benefited greatly.
John has also really blossomed in the time he has attended, and Leo really provided us with invaluable insight into John's learning style and potential. I am so thankful for this.
From the bottom of my heart I am fully appreciative of what you have accomplished with Liam... he often speaks of you and he has such a high respect for what you teach him.
Education excites him, and this is gives me peace of mind for his future. Just wish that all educators where half as good as you and your team.
I need to say a big thank you to everyone at ELC, Taliah has grown in leaps and bounds since starting with you, and with math, let's just say I had a comment from her teacher that she was skipping too far ahead in a math one lesson - Teigan's response was "Its just algebra, Mum". She is a lot more confident than I expected about high school next year. I have had many comments from her teachers about how she has changed over the year. That would not be possible without a team of people in her corner, and the crew at ELC who we call "Her secret weapon" have been a key component for us.
We shall look forward to seeing her grow as she starts high school with ELC definitely a key part of the team.
Lately l have noticed Otto has developed a more mature and responsible aspect to his character and is asking many questions. This l have noticed since he has become a student of yours , so l believe your influence has had allot to do with the improvement.
Thank you so much for spending time with Annabelle and helping her with her English. It has been so good for her and she has really enjoyed her tutoring with you and Dan.
Secondly, I wanted to say to you how much I appreciate your effort and the time you spend with her weekly to increase her understanding. It is making a difference. My one regret is that I didn’t start tutoring her with you earlier when some of these gaps became evident to me. But I would without hesitation recommend you guys to anyone who asks me.
I thank you both for taking such good care of Callan and for all the knowledge and skills that he has already learned. And for all the good advice and the chocolates ??
At ELC we believe in:
students the curriculum, resources, skills and guidance to take ownership of their learning.
confidence and positive habits early.
learning independently of school restrictions, such as year-level boundaries.
by connecting students’ efforts today with their dreams, wants and ideas for their future.
the innate human instinct to enjoy learning.
students how to make their education work to their current and future advantage.
them to achieve at the school system by “playing the game”.

Preparing Students For Puberty
“I used to get this stuff…” At puberty, the teenage brain temporarily looses some of its capacity for academics. We want our students to have learnt ahead in the core curriculum with us, BEFORE they hit puberty. That’s the plan – if we get them early enough. And we want you to know whatRead More
