Cairns South Aldon Tutoring Centre is located in a quiet and pleasant complex and is situated close to government and private schools, and on major bus routes servicing suburbs from Whitfield through to the south of Cairns, such as Gordonvale and Aloomba. The Centre provides tuition from preschool to tertiary students from suburbs in Cairns and south of Cairns.

The Centre is owned and operated by Ray Godwin. Ray has 30 years in education in different roles and contexts. He has taught grades from Prep to Year 10, held advisory teacher roles such as Coordinator of Special Education Services, Hearing / Education Officer for the Aboriginal Hearing  Programme and assisting Tertiary students through the Remote Teacher Education Programme, as a Teacher Education Coordinator (JCU and TNQIT Tafe).  His formal Qualifications are: M.Ed, B.Ed., Dip. eLearning, Dip. Teaching and a Teacher Excellence Award in 2005 (Education Queensland).

After all these years, Ray is still passionate about helping students to be the best that they can be. Ray says, “Seeing the confidence develop in students is wonderful. It is great to see them realise that they can learn effectively and become independent learners at their own pace. It is about recognising and acknowledging each student’s strengths to support and develop their skills. Here at Cairns South Aldon Tutoring Centre, the unltimate goal is to empower students’ confidence and knowledge to become active learners who strive to maximize their potential.”

An assessment is conducted in the first session of tutoring to ensure that the tutoring program targets the individual needs of the child. A separate, formal assessment and written report can be organised and conducted to provide parents with details of their child's achievements in Maths or English. Ray and his staff design specific programs for each child.  Ray says, “Generic programs are hit and miss. I like to design the programmes to suit the child rather than forcing the child to suit the program. Here at Cairns South Aldon Tutoring, we use a combination of computer based activities and paper based tasks with face to face tuition. After all, children still need to be able to write and set work out neatly. Book work and setting out is still very important as poor setting plays a part in the difficulties in class.”

Tuition can be private or whilst others are in attendance. However, each student has his/her own, individually prepared education programme. There is NO group work. “Time given to students in smaller numbers yields better results as strategies can be adjusted to ensure better engagement of tasks,” Ray explains.

Trading hours: Monday – Friday 2:30 pm – 7.15pm. Saturday 8.30am-12:00 Noon. Intensive sessions, such as study skills and back to school programmes, will be offered during school holiday periods.

We are happy to report that XXXXXX got an overall report of Sound (C) for her half yearly report card in the area of Maths which included a high (B) in the area of measurement and geometry which we are very proud of.

XXXXX was really excited to tell me how well she did in her assessment on Monday, I’m really proud of her.  I appreciate how much you are helping XXXX, I have seen big improvements in her confidence with Maths in general when we talk about it at home, so thank you.

XXXX achieved the best report card in his schooling  history. Including an A for maths. Especially considering the very short timeframe, I am extremely pleased (even a little shocked) at the result.  I would recommend your services to anyone.
