Online, Face to Face Tutoring, the Education Hub and Foundation Modules
Impact Tutoring offers different learning options to give you flexibility, with both in-person and online options.
The Education Hub is a safe place where students can have face to face lessons with expert tutors matched with students they can best teach so students can make the most of their time. There are kitchen facilities and comfortable seating, but most importantly, well-lit tutorial rooms where students can focus on lessons.
Online tutoring is also available over Zoom which is perfect for students in more rural areas, for those busy students whose schedules struggle to find the right timetable, or if it’s just easier for students’ individual needs.
The Foundation Modules are another online option. These are learning units that can be done in the student’s own time and at their own pace. Each lesson is written by authors who are experts in their fields.

"It’s a real ‘aha’ moment when they turn it around and can be proud of themselves."
Education is the key to success, so at Impact Tutoring students’ learning goes beyond individual subjects with ripple effects that include learners who were once uncertain becoming an inspiration to others. It’s a real ‘aha’ moment when they turn it around and can be proud of themselves. This is why, at Impact Tutoring, Written Language tuition is aligned with the New Zealand curriculum. Personal Recount, Information Reports and Narrative are all included in youth tutorials.

Our texts are interesting to engage students’ interests.

The Benefits of Tutoring
Tutoring provides many benefits, the most obvious being an improvement in academic performance.
Results for exams and tests increase with tutorials teaching preparation and by targeting knowledge gaps. When work and study habits are improved students start experiencing success, as their frustrations are addressed they become more confident, their attitude towards education transforms, and they become excited to learn.
The ability to ask questions and overcome challenges encourages students to be independent and take on new responsibilities.
