NUMBER ONE!

Thank you Prime for helping me with all my maths problems! The teachers have been very supportive towards my learning and also my peers. They showed me step by step and face to face. The atmosphere is always positive and I highly recommend this place for all students. Compared to other places, it is number one in my opinion!

SUPPORTIVE!

Prime Education has really helped me and my confidence in General Mathematics. The tutors are very supportive and have no judgements or prejudice if you are struggling with anything. The work that is provided is very useful and relevant to excel in all subjects, especially during senior school.

MOTIVATION!

Prime Education has allowed me to gain insight to a whole new way of learning. It has assisted me throughout the past 2 years and helped me achieve the best I can in Extension Mathematics. Not only has Prime given me great education but it has allowed me to gain motivation and interest in Mathematics. Furthermore, I have also met great new people who gave me guidance throughout the time.

EXCELLENT TUTORS!

At Prime, I am doing both English and Maths. Maths is very helpful as I am able to learn topics in advanced on the classes. On Saturday Individual Tuition Lessons I am able to sit down with one of Prime tutors who can give me some practice questions for any up coming exams. I have recently started English and I have enjoyed it so far. There is a lot of different information that the English tutor has taught me about the Shakespeare Era. She is also very good at helping me to prepare for my up coming assessments. Prime Education is very friendly and is always willing to help me!

VERY HELPFUL!

I think Prime Education is a wonderful educational place. The staff and teachers are all very helpful and their attitude to everyone is very personal. I feel like my confidence in maths has gone up ever since I have come here as my marks at school have increased and I have a deeper understanding of most topics.

AWESOME!

Prime Education has helped me greatly in improving my maths for the HSC. The lessons are always planned out so that there is no time wasting and so that they can target specific skills needed. They are very good!

HIGH QUALITY!

I have found Prime Education a wonderful way to learn and develop new maths skills that keep me ahead of class. By learning these topics in advance I feel more confident in school as it becomes revision. Since I started at Prime, I have moved up 4 classes and ranking 3rd in my year. Thanks to Prime, maths has been much more enjoyable and easier to learn at school. By gaining the understanding and foundations during the week classes, the Saturday lessons are a chance for me to test what I have learnt and see where I go wrong. The homework also is a good way to revise the new topics to familiarise myself with them.
