Glenda believes that “everyone has a need to make connections, to make sense of the world, to communicate, and to participate fully in life.” She loves to share in those ‘aha’ moments when connections are made, and she can see the happiness that shows in the smiling faces. “When the flow of learning is disrupted through unfortunate life events such as absence, illness or trauma, gaps in knowledge can occur quickly and may have serious consequences”.
After a long and rewarding career in education Glenda says “I know that learning is a two-way process. A passion for social justice, regard for individual differences in learning, and the power of self-belief are my drivers to help our young people to learn……success in learning fosters growth in self-belief, and the confidence to recognise and follow learning opportunities.”

Having started at our centre in March 2020 and thoroughly enjoying his time here, Nick believes that having access to a quality education and tutoring can positively influence a child’s decision making and motivation.
Nick’s aim as a tutor he says, having learnt personally how important the role of a supportive tutor can be, is to help students achieve their goals by providing mentoring alongside guidance in development of learning skills.
Nick brings to our students, the experience of his studies along with his gentle and encouraging approach, enabling each child to move closer towards developing their full potential.
Tobias believes that all children have the right to access good-quality education, and that the benefits of receiving specialist tuition cannot be denied. With a passion for inclusive education, and having graduated as Dux of his senior schooling, his results are testimony to the effect that early intervention can have on a student’s successful future learning experience.
Tobias has been assisting our students with their studies across the whole curriculum, from early Literacy and Numeracy to senior students studying for QCE. Tobias brings the optimal range of qualities required to fully support Al Roberts Education Centre students in realising their potential particularly in their English studies, as well as in the Humanities, Mathematics and the Sciences.
Committed to facilitating a nurturing learning environment, Tobias’s goal is to motivate students to be driven by their own successes and accomplishments.

Helen came from a background that included being Head of Mathematics & Coordinator of Gifted and Talented Education, to work at our Centre in 2007 as a tutor in basic literacy & numeracy and Secondary Mathematics & Science, becoming Administrator of the business in 2012 and owner and Director in 2016.
Helen believes that students learn best when they feel good about themselves at whatever level of achievement they have attained.
Having long believed in the concept of multiple intelligences and that each child has their own unique learning style, she knows that given enough time and access to support, students can develop their confidence to the point where they can say they did it themselves.
