‘It has been a blessing to teach students over the years and witness their tremendous growth. I have witnessed the growth of Tutors SA and have enjoyed being a part of such a dynamic team. Most importantly, the tutoring experience enables tutors to form close mentoring relationships with the students which often gets lost in a larger classroom. To encapsulate my life work as a teacher and counsellor, I am developing a workbook for students to improve their habits of the mind. My role at Tutors SA is to boost the average age! ‘ – Kathy
