Tuition Time Success Stories

LUKE MARSHALL

Finding Howard Boughton was sheer good luck! My son Luke was getting mediocre results in Chemistry and needed to do far better for a UAI required for his chosen engineering course. I found Tuition Time in the Yellow Pages and after meeting with Howard was struck by his enthusiasm.

Luke went from a Band 2 in Chemistry to a high Band 5 at the end of the year, far exceeding what was required. Luke was always enthusiastic about attending tuition, as he enjoyed Howard's' style of teaching and felt that he was beginning to really understand his work.

Luke also had tuition in English and Howard's insight into structuring essays and approaching abstract English Literature questions was invaluable.

Tuition Time also ran holiday programs in the lead up to the HSC exams. They reviewed old exam papers and provided a wonderful opportunity to polish up on exam technique and tackle any problems.

I discovered that many top Port Macquarie students from both Public and Private Schools were being tutored by Howard. It is however not only the top students wanting to achieve UAIs in the 90s that benefit from his tuition, but equally students who are battling to keep their heads above water. Luke had excellent teachers at Port Macquarie High School, but a good tutor can provide individual attention and a different perspective. In addition, Howard tends to play a much broader mentoring role with his students, providing someone apart from parents and teachers to turn to for advice and help. He acts as someone on their side.

I am a teacher myself and believe that Howard has a real gift for teaching. It strikes me that there are a number of facets to Howard's success, the most important being that he genuinely cares for and enjoys the company of his students. This is reciprocated by the students, who in turn have the utmost regard and respect for him. He has the ability to make every student feel special and thus build their confidence. The enthusiasm that he shows seems to rub off on even the most unmotivated kids. These aspects of his tuition benefit the under-achieving students even more than the top students.

It is one thing to be coached by someone who has a good knowledge of the subject matter, but a thorough, up to date knowledge of the curriculum, what the examiners want and how to approach exam questions is rare, yet essential for the HSC. Howard is extremely well qualified and experienced, being a retired Head Master.
Tuition Time is very professionally run, with regular reports posted home to keep parents in the loop and students well informed about how they are progressing.

In regard to his broader mentoring role, Howard makes a point of attending all of the major assemblies at the various schools when his students may be getting awards..... quite an achievement when the final assemblies fall so close together! Students were also promised a reward at the end of the year for showing significant improvement and 25 students were treated to breakfast at Rydges!

Howard and the other teachers at Tuition Time offer a superb and unique approach to tutoring that gave Luke and many others the edge they needed to gain an excellent result.

As I am currently preparing to sit the Graduate Australian Medical School Admissions Test, I feel extremely fortunate to have found Tuition Time. I am thoroughly enjoying my Chemistry Tutorials with Howard and have been impressed with the supportive nature of Tuition Time and with their focus upon helping me to achieve my goals that my daughter, in Year 9, is now also attending.
