We take out the testing and bring back the teaching


We don’t believe in further assessing a child formally through white paper and more testing as soon as the student meets us. Through years teaching in the classroom and experience talking with children and their parents, hearing those words, test or assessment is enough to have the anxiety and cortisol levels to rise for anyone! We all know when we feel uncomfortable, anxious and stressed our pathways to learn are shut down. We panic, we can’t think.


Lizard Learning Tutoring is all about creating trust at the start, forming a solid foundation of connection between tutor and student. We get to know the student’s likes, dislikes, hobbies and interests and we integrate and build this knowledge into their lessons and activities. We are always assessing and monitoring, as we are engaging and forming that learning relationship.

This method fosters a deeper connection between the tutor and student therefore creating better results much faster.


Nobody knows their child more than a parent. We always talk with the parents/guardians beforehand to discuss the learning needs of their child. Our experience in teaching and tutoring allows us to see where the student is and we take the learning from there.

We listen to our families and our students and work together to achieve results in the areas they know they need our help to keep moving forwards in their learning.

We are happy to talk to the class teacher too. Many of our tutors are school teachers so we completely understand teacher talk, which will greatly benefit the whole tutoring experience to gain results quickly.

Consistency is the key to success!

Regular and consistent learning support such as 1:1 tutoring quickly reduces learning gaps before they become an issue.  This is why we offer a range of tutoring packages to suit any family budget.

No contracts to sign or long term commitment.

Pay upfront and receive big discounts or pay as you go for flexible learning.
