Tutors who make it easier for young to excel in class

WITH school resuming soon, your child may display some educational gaps and even anxiety at the prospect of returning after the holidays.
That’s where MBH Coaching can make all the difference, helping to identify weaknesses, building on strengths, filling in the gaps and igniting a passion for learning among pre-schoolers up to those in Year 12.
Established 28 years ago by Sharelle Hurley, a previous learning support teacher who specialises in English, History, Writing and Special Education, MBH Coaching was bolstered five years ago when husband Malcolm joined after retiring.
The former high school principal excels in teaching all the STEM subjects including Chemistry, Physics, Technology, Biology, Design & Technology and Maths.
Helping hundreds of students reach their full potential over more than two and half decades, Sharelle and the MBH team tutor children with the full gambit of abilities – from those with special learning needs and battlers to the gifted.
“We work with them, their teachers and their parents but the focus is not on what level they can achieve but rather on the changes you can see in them,” she said.
With their home and shop in Panania, the parents of three adult sons say they are happy to take on top students as well.
“But when you are close to the top, it’s hard to measure the success rather than a child who is at the bottom and then achieves an average result – that is truly an outstanding achievement,” Malcolm said.
The Hurleys’ real strength is their ability to engage with the student and in turn, get the student to engage with the learning content.
“We take the time to get to know our students and just because their one-hour lesson might be up, we’ll give them as much as they need to get the confidence in what they’re doing,” Sharelle said.
