Unlike the many coaching colleges around, at Elite Tutoring College we hate the idea of a "one size fits all" approach to tutoring. And we're not interested in putting as many students through our college as possible.

Large study groups seem to be very popular with many Asian students nowadays, and no doubt they're very profitable for the coaching colleges. But for the students, it's hardly an effective approach to preparing for an IELTS test.

We're about quality - by providing highly-personalised online tuition.

That's why we only teach students one-on-one or in small groups - usually 2 to 3 students per class. That way, we're able to tailor our lessons specifically to each student's needs, rather than restricting them to a strict, inflexible programme.

Depending on your time-frame, we can also tailor the frequency of your lessons to your own specific needs. If you have plenty of preparation time and just need some regular, weekly learning and guidance, we can arrange that. On the other hand, if you're short on time and need to cram your preparation, that's no problem either.

We won't pressure you either way - our goal is to provide whatever works best for you.

Versions of IELTS Test

Two main versions plus one additional version of IELTS test:

IELTS Academic Test

For people applying for higher, or tertiary, level education or professional registration in an English speaking environment.

IELTS Life Skills Test

Another available test, intended for those who need to prove their English speaking and listening skills at Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) levels A1, A2 and B2.

Learning Online

Face-to-face lessons may feel familiar to many, but thanks to currently available technology online lessons are now just as effective, if not more so. Our online tutoring platform incorporates all the cutting-edge features to make lessons as interactive and effective as possible for students.

About Us

We pride ourselves on our friendly, relaxed and enjoyable tutoring sessions that consistently see our students realise their academic goals, in much less time.

With our friendly, highly qualified and experienced tutors, at Elite Tutoring College we guarantee that all students will be delighted with their tutoring experience and results. Our past results speak for themselves, all our students experience dramatic and rapid improvements and go on to achieve excellent results.

Our History

After working briefly as a high school Japanese language teacher, and later as a freelance Japanese language tutor for 5 years, Gloria Kaneko set up Elite Tutoring College in Epping in 2005. Although focusing on Japanese tutoring, we also offered tuition in English and Mathematics.

The following year, Elite Tutoring College moved to a larger location in Burwood, where we began to offer tuition in more subjects for high school students. Several years later we expanded to a second location, in Chatswood, offering a full range of both high school and primary school subjects.

In the years since Elite Tutoring College has continued to grow, and even found its way into the online tutoring space. While maintaining our specialty in providing top-quality private tuition to HSC students, we now have tutoring available in almost all secondary school, IB, and primary school subjects as well as IELTS preparation.

Our IELTS preparation lessons are conducted one-on-one or in small, personalised and highly-focused
groups of 2 to 4 students to achieve maximum learning effectiveness.

Our Tutors

What makes our IELTS tutors great . . .

At Elite Tutoring College we place a very high level of importance on the personal qualities of our selected tutors. To ensure that our tutors are valued representatives of our college and provide a learning environment for students that is in line with our intended college culture, we insist on the following key attributes:

  • Appropriate qualifications and experience in tutoring and/or teaching their particular subject or subjects.
  • A strong commitment to their individual students. Students rely entirely on their respective tutors as individuals to provide tuition in an effective, consistent and uninterrupted manner throughout their school year. We consider it essential that our tutors possess an attitude of dependability and obligation toward their students.
  • A keen focus on their individual students' needs and development. Despite the additional effort and preparation involved, we require our tutors to tailor lessons to their individual students' needs and situations, and take an active interest in recognising and maximising their development and academic achievements.
  • The ability to relate to their students in a warm, friendly and personable manner. One of the most important unique features of Elite Tutoring College is our enjoyable and friendly learning environment. In our experience this is directly responsible for significantly accelerating the development our students', by allowing them to look forward to their classes and enjoy their learning experience. We therefore require all our tutors to relate well to their students and provide lessons that are lively and interesting.
  • A responsible and professional attitude to their tutoring position. At Elite Tutoring College we take the responsibility for our students' development and care very seriously, and ensure that our tutors maintain a similar philosophy. This encompasses all areas of their influence, including their preparation, their conduct in the lessons, and their willingness and flexibility in providing benefit to their students.
  • Thorough preparation in their subject knowledge and lesson material. Our tutors are required to research and maintain a constant familiarity with the IELTS, including all the associated requirements, and to prepare and report upon all their lessons.

So many other private tutors merely provide general help to students in a particular subject. Here at Elite Tutoring College however, you can expect top quality tuition by professional tutors who will also guide you and teach you exactly how to approach the IELTS test to maximise your grades.

Our focus is on providing the best possible tutor for each student's individual level, budget and needs. We have tutors available ranging from recent graduates, to past high-school teachers, to adult ESL teachers, to tutors with over 20 years of experience.

About Our Tutors

All our tutors are personally hand-selected by our manager, Gloria Kaneko, and they are chosen very carefully. They are all friendly, fully qualified and experienced tutors who meet our high standards for quality of tutoring, passion for teaching and caring about students.

Anyone can have knowledge, but not everyone can have a great attitude, or a true passion for teaching and nurturing students. We place a lot of importance on these inner qualities in our tutors.

We're proud to say that our tutors are not just qualified and experienced, but are passionate, love to teach, and represent our school's philosophy and culture.
