Provided a much-needed boost to our child's education

“Cluey Learning provided a much-needed boost to our child's education. Suddenly faced with the demands of year 11 English, our child went from near top of the class to near bottom in the space of a term. Her Cluey Learning tutor helped give her the confidence and concepts she was missing. If your child is struggling, even slightly, I recommend Cluey Learning. Their one-on-one classes and friendly, intelligent tutors will be of great assistance to giving your child the boost they need.”
