We thank these former students and their families for taking the time to share their experiences.

“I have never met a person more passionate about her job than Aunty Lena. Her lessons were always planned and thought out well, and she went out of her way to make sure everyone fully understood what she was teaching, even if it meant spending more time with them.”



“I worked with Aunty Lena in year 11 and 12 because I was getting B’s and C’s for my essays. Lena taught me how to read and respond to essay questions effectively. She told me I had potential and always encouraged me. Soon, I was getting A’s!”



“I was failing 2A/2B English very badly in year 12. I failed TEE English and even English and a second language. Lena offered to give me free tuition to help me prepare for the STAT exam. I spent a lot of time writing and rewriting essays with her to prepare, Lena helped me build my confidence and improve my English. In the end, I passed the STAT exam! Now I study at Curtin University. I can’t thank Aunty Lena enough.”



“It was because of Lena that I finally received an English Literature TEE grade I could be proud of, and also a great TER!”



“Once I commenced tuition with Aunty Lena, my approach towards English changed.”



“Aunty Lena’s active interest in the journey and mentality of each of her students was refreshing, always coaxing the best out of an individual.”
