"Our attitude is our best friend or our worst enemy. It is the speaker of our present. It is the prophet of our future. It is more honest and more consistent than our words"

People young and old are happiest when they are achieving to their potential. However many children as well as adults do not know their own capabilities or how to improve. Master Learning can help. Effective tutoring and training can develop greater confidence and motivation. Once self image and self expectations improve, students' performance in all areas improves dramatically and this will assist them to get the best value from their time at school or adult studies. The question often asked is why tuition will benefit students if they come to our centre. Here are some reasons:
 

1. We Have A Vision!

Our Aim is to improve each students' self confidence, self-esteem and school results
Our Vision is to make a positive difference in the life of each student.
Our Mission is to provide inspirational teaching and support.
 

2. All students at Master Learning can expect:

  • To enjoy the sessions
  • To have access to many more high quality resources in our rooms than if we brought a bag to their home
  • To develop attitudes and strategies that will enhance their learning now and throughout their lives.
  • To meet other students who have similar hopes and dreams and also have things to learn and/or improve

There are many advantages for students who are willing to do extra work. There are good reasons also why paying for assistance by trained professionals in a small group will "make the difference". Even the Department of Education and many schools are recognising that extra lessons after school can assist students to be successful above and beyond what they would achieve in normal school lessons in much larger groups. In a recent newspaper article, the NSW Education Minister outlined the need and provision for extra coaching for Year 12 students from 77 schools to achieve higher marks. Homework centres are developing in many schools.
 
We believe the Master Learning method of tuition is your best choice for a number of reasons:
  • Experienced qualified teachers on staff who want the best for each student. They set individual programs to assist the pupils achieve skills, gain proficiency and make definitive improvement
  • Flexible programs that nurture each student in what needs strengthening, practising, reviewing or establishing in their different subjects
  • Develop the self-confidence and belief that is required by all students if they are to be successful and happy. Often students are unaware of what they can achieve and they perform to a level far below their capacity and potential
  • A strong organisation that believes that education is not just about marks and results but developing children, young people and adults to seek and achieve their goals and dreams. It is developing a positive attitude towards learning and life, developing the ability to focus on what is important and finally putting plans and goals into real action. One important outcome of this approach is the attainment of better marks and results. This motivates students to aim higher than they often would without the encouragement and incentive building of tuition.

We look forward to continuing to assist families in the Macarthur region to enjoy their journey of life, particularly in education.
