Term 4 starts Monday, 4 October. A few places remain. Talk to us this week.
August 2021 Covid restrictions update:
We have emailed information to all ELC families. We will email updates to ELC families as needed.
If you can’t find our email, just let us know.
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.
We teach better than an excellent school!
Our students are going places! We’re working towards their future career, lifestyle, choices, success and satisfaction.
Catch up! >> Keep up! >> Get ahead!
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.
- 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.
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.
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.

Radical change to university incentives has been needed for some time. And here it is! (Announced 19 June 2020) But what a year for school-leavers! The first to graduate with an ATAR in Queensland. Learning and assessments disrupted by Covid. And now, with QTAC preference selection well underway, a university course price shake-up due to start next year has thrownRead More
Education, school and tutoring in the face of Covid-19 Last updated: 22 March 2021 Many students found it tough during the learning disruptions associated with Covid-19. And consequently, we saw an increase in Sunshine Coast families looking for English and maths tuition and learning support, which has continued into 2021. As the coronavirus social restrictionsRead More
During the Covid-19 social restrictions ELC has moved temporarily to remote learning to keep our students’ safe while keeping their hard-earned progress from being compromised. From Term 2 2020 we are once again running in-centre tuition with increased hygiene measures and limited students numbers. But if you’re looking for more to keep students occupied whileRead More
Which maths? Short answer: Methods We say students should have Mathematical Methods as their default expectation, and aspire to it from early on. (Formerly equivalent to Maths B.) In Year 10, students choose which maths subjects to study in Years 11 and 12 for their QCE. But the road to Maths Methods starts years beforeRead More
Guilty pleasure I guarantee you’ve more than once suppressed that slippery guilt that comes with putting off today what could be done tomorrow. And you have no idea how long this topic has been on my own to-do list! (This is a long one, but we cover a LOT of good stuff.) So it’s notRead More
