“...I was able to use the skills taught in English in all my other written subjects and topped the year in each.”

“ I’ve attended this tutoring place for more than two years. This is a brilliant tutoring place especially for self-motivated students. It provides excellent resources, and with Joe’s teaching techniques and formulas, improvement for both assessment tasks and exams are inevitable. I’ve been to various tutoring colleges but I personally prefer this place as Joe focuses more on individual skills, and would try to foster our individual strength, whereas other colleges have more than 15 students in the same classroom, which makes it really hard for the teacher to focus on each student. Motivation and consistency is important here and only by committing yourself, you will gain tremendous improvement for all your humanity subjects, not just English. I’ve improved significantly from the moment I came to this place, and this is shown through my results for all my humanity subjects. I came second in Legal Studies, first in Modern History, second in Ext History and fourth in English Advanced, simply because I adapted the techniques & formulas that Joe provided me. I strongly recommend this tutoring place over any other tutoring college. ”

“ Croydon Park Tutoring is an excellent place to learn as it is a fun and interactive class. It is brilliant as we are not only strengthening our comprehension skills, but also strengthening our essay writing skills which is crucial in our years in school. It helps us in every subject such as history, geography, business studies, legal studies and science. Furthermore, Joe assists us in our school modules, which is a big advantage as it improves our school examination results.

I have definitely seen improvement in my English results from being the average or the bottom half of the class to getting top marks in both class and the year. I’ve been to many different English tutors ever since I was in year 5 but I have not found any other tutoring more effective than Croydon Park Tutoring. Joe teaches formulas on essay writing and how and what to write specifically in each module studied at school, which I have never come across. The studying environment is very friendly and comforting with small groups which doesn’t make it too crowded unlike places. ”

Samira Khan & Lucia Jung  –  Year 9 & 10 English


“ Mr. Kolega focuses on all current modules studied in English, especially on assessment tasks and examination results! His proven formulas are brilliant but regular attendance is a must! I topped my Form in Year 12. ”

Chris  –  Year 12 Advanced English


“ I have been coming to Croydon Park Tutoring for 2 years and have found it a resounding success. I initially came here with the intention of improving only in English, however, I was able to use the skills taught in English in all my other written subjects and topped the year in each.

Mr. Kolega taught me how to apply these written skills to History, Legal Studies, Business, Art and Economics. The written skills, formulas, analysis and concepts learn't here are transferrable across ALL other written subjects. Great value for money and I recommend it to everyone! ”

“ The teacher has a vast array of his own resources and materials and these have made me understand my modules studied at school, all the more thorough, maximizing my results. ”
