Progress In Learning believes in empowering children, parents and educators to make a difference.
My main clients are from primary school and attract those who find learning a challenge. However, as my products and services are based on sound teaching principles and cover a wide age range, they are suitable for ALL learners for all time! My youngest student has been 5 years and the oldest is 62 years.

Any other information
I support, encourage, educate and entertain parents through my social media links which can be accessed from my website www.progressinlearning.co.nz
It is also of great concern to me that many parents cannot afford assessment and tuition. I believe in providing some structure, support and resources that will be of assistance. I encourage parents who want to do a home course with their children, to attend presentations.
I would be happy to discuss working with you!
