We believe that any child can succeed at school. The secret is to help students see –and believe in– their own capabilities.

Confidence plays a huge role in helping students make the most of their education. If they lack self-belief, they think that they are bad at school and are reluctant to even ask for help.

Learning Works is a team of caring teachers who are dedicated to helping children progress and succeed. Learning Works is owned by Sandy Blair, a qualified and experienced primary and secondary teacher. Husband and wife team, Sandy Blair and Kieran Thomson founded the centre under the Kip McGrath banner in Geelong in 1990, later opening centres in Belmont and Ocean Grove and have been helping students ever since. The team at Learning Works have vast experience in primary school maths and English tutoring and high school maths and English tutoring in Geelong and surrounding areas for more than two decades. We pride ourselves on the rapport we have built within the Geelong community and the clientele we have helped.

We believe tutoring is a significant part of the education jigsaw. Learning Works can assist by filling in the gaps and helping students to become better at their school work by providing a professional, supportive environment. Our team of professional Geelong tutors also specialises in providing tutoring for children with learning difficulties, particularly dyslexia.

We are passionate about helping students to improve, and helping parents by supporting their children. We strive to improve confidence by improving skills. We are experts at helping students. We don’t just tutor, we teach. Our experience is vast, and we only employ very well qualified, very experienced and dedicated teachers. Our flexible approach allows for specifically tailored responses to the needs of students’ week by week responding to the demands of tests, assignments, essays, SACs, and exams at secondary level. We do not slot kids onto a rigid “program”, but tailor our assistance to every individual’s needs at the time.

Since 1990, we have helped thousands of students succeed in school with our tailored programs. We understand the psychology and speech pathology reports which highlight the problem areas for children. Our role is to address those concerns and help improve the skills of the children we tutor.

We can make a difference by improving skills and confidence.
