Galaxy Education provides the highest quality professional tuition in core subjects in order to help students create successful and fulfilling lives.
At Galaxy, we believe that the home is the most important and influential educational environment. Therefore, while we follow the school curriculum, we aim to support parents and other caregivers who seek to help their younger family members become powerful individuals and take charge of their own lives. This entails assisting parents and caregivers to become an integral part of their child or young person's education.
We provide individualised, professional, after school tuition in the core subjects of English (including literacy) and Mathematics (including numeracy) to students of all ages and abilities.
To older exam level students, we also offer General Science, Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Accounting. These are also in the form of individualised programmes.
Galaxy also affirms the primacy of face-to face lessons, in the belief that learning is most effective and worthwhile when it is founded on strong, positive relationships among key participants - the student, teacher and parent. Our methods reflect this, as they are a healthy mix of the traditional and modern, utilising pencil and paper, multi-media and online resources and lesson delivery, complemented by parent participation at home.

Our teachers are all fully qualified, experienced, hand-picked and well versed in the student - centred philosophy of Galaxy Education. As befits their professional status, our teachers bring to bear a high level of expertise, commitment and care to their Galaxy students. As one commented, "It is really rewarding to see the students purposefully and happily engaged. While here, I feel I am able to really help my students to learn, think, question and, in general, become better students of life. What is more, it is great to be appreciated for our efforts".
We cater to a wide spectrum of student abilities, which is best understood by taking a closer look at who attends Galaxy Education:
- Students who experience difficulty with mathematics, reading, spelling, writing, or English usually find their confidence and self esteem suffer. These students attend to have their performance raised to an age-appropriate level and beyond.
- Those who are achieving moderately well, but wish to raise their level of achievement even further, attend for extension work.
- Many students wish to attain, and then maintain, the highest level of achievement of which they are capable. Such motivated 'high flyers' attend to obtain on-going support during their studies.
