Tutors at Education Rules

My name is Celia Watson. My husband, Richard Watson, and I purchased Education Rules!!! from Sharon Coyne at the end of 2018.

My teaching career of 25 years spans high school teaching, working with adults who had attended Special School, Special Needs Support Group in high school and finally, Teacher, Curriculum Coordinator, and Acting Deputy Principal at Maryborough Special School.

We came to Maryborough in 1999, as Richard was appointed to work at the TAFE College. He has a strong background in business, working with adults with disabilities, and Adult Education.

We are enjoying working with parents and children in the Maryborough community. We continue to operate on the strong basis that Sharon Coyne established. We work with students to build their learning capacity by coaching them in the use of strategies that they can take with them into the future, and apply every day.

Our school students range from Years Prep to 12 and they access tutoring for a wide variety of reasons. Some of our students are already high achievers, who just want a little extra help to ensure they maintain or improve their school results. Other students may have recently moved cities, may have missed a great deal of school due to illness, or for other reasons, may have simply fallen behind their classmates.

These students attend to receive the extra assistance they need to catch up. In other situations, parents recognise that their work or other commitments prevent them from spending time at home focusing on their children's homework. Education Rules!!! alleviates this stress, allowing parents to spend their time having fun with their children.

Adult students may be studying online and require tutorial assistance. Tuition for adults are available at different times from school students.

No – we believe that, in an action-packed life, students need 'time out' as much as anyone. Our tuition services operate during Queensland state school terms only.

For students to achieve their best possible results, it's preferable that they don't miss a session. If students have to miss a session for any reason, payment is still due, however we offer the option of a catch-up session so that they do not miss out on receiving the tuition.

No – each student is an individual with individual needs. The aim of tuition is to focus on individual improvement and not to make comparisons with other students of a similar age. For this reason we do not specifically group students according to their grade. Even if a number of students from the same grade are in the centre at the same time, each student will still work on an individually designed programme.

The maximum ratio of tutors to students is one tutor for three students. In our years of experience, we have found that this ratio works extremely well as it allows the students to gain the individual attention they need, but also allows them the time to process the information independently without a tutor prompting them.

Prior to beginning any tuition programme, the students will receive a complimentary academic appraisal which tests reading age, spelling age and maths level. The results of this appraisal, combined with feedback from parents and teachers, provide the basis for developing the individual tuition programme. Naturally, if after commencing tutoring, additional areas of need are identified, these are also incorporated in the tuition programme.

When a student begins a new programme it's always difficult to tell how long he or she will take to achieve their goals. Each person is an individual, and progresses at his or her own individual rate. Attitude and confidence play a large part in the success of a programme. Students can achieve success more rapidly by working well during the sessions. Similarly, parents can assist their students by remaining positive and encouraging.
