What parents and students say about the Better Essays program:"I'd like to say thank you so much for all the help you've given me this year in preparation for the GAMSAT. I definitely would not have been confident going into the exam without your feedback!"
Henry, GAMSAT candidate "The ATAR results were released and I topped my class scoring 88% in Literature...thank you so much for the time you spent with me - honestly, even from just talking I felt like I was learning, and gaining confidence in being creative."
Jack, student of Guildford Grammar School "Fantastic program! My son really got a lot out of this program and it has helped him organize his thinking and writing for all of his subjects. Very well done and I look forward to my younger son taking advantage of it soon as well!"
Amy (parent), student of St Stephen’s School Duncraig "It really helped me to learn new skills for writing essays and analysing texts. My grades in English improved and I am now more confident in writing essays. Thank you!"
Sara, student of St Mary’s Anglican Girls’ School "Thank you very much for helping Gillian with her English over the past two weeks. She admitted to me on the first session that she wasn’t looking forward to it but, when I picked her up, she said it was “Much better than she expected!” Very good reinforcement of what she had learned at school and a lot of very useful information that she found helpful. I think this is a wonderful compliment (coming from a teenager!) and we very much appreciate all your efforts. Thanks again Andrea!"
Melissa (parent), student of St Stephen’s School Duncraig "This course was very helpful. The explanations, and the way the course goes in depth about the elements of writing, is very helpful. I would highly recommend the course."

Debbie (parent), student of Peter Moyes Anglican Community School "Hello Andrea. Ben and I would like to thank you for the tuition over the past three weeks. He found the course informative and useful. In his own words, “The time went by quickly considering it was one-to-one”. All he has to do now is put what he has learnt into practice! He went to his first uni open day yesterday and is very enthusiastic about the whole thing, which made our hearts sing. Best wishes to you for your ongoing success with the program."
