"Thank you for the feedback. We appreciate the communication as this is such a critical part of getting our daughter to the level she needs to be at and having clear pathways of communication helps both sides reach the goals. Our daughter told us she loved it (which was super surprising to me as she wasn't so keen initially) so we are thrilled. Always so much more rewarding when they are enjoying the work and learning at the same time. So thank you for getting in touch and helping my little girl."
"I've never heard my daughter use "Maths" and "That was really good!" in the same sentence, so I'm really pleased she enjoyed it and got something out of her first session. She found it really useful someone explaining things to her one-on-one, and she re-did her trig test the following day with little effort, and only got one wrong. A big jump from only getting a third of the test completed, and only half of those correct!”
Eve, Hibiscus Coast
“Our daughter is thoroughly enjoying her Maths sessions. We are amazed at her quick understanding and overall improvement and excitement with Maths It's such a relief to be making progress. We thank you.”
Kate, Hibiscus Coast
“I would like to thank you for the great job you and your tutors are doing. We were very pleased with our son’s progress last year with Thinking Caps and the school extension work. He passed his maths with merits and excellences which was fabulous! Over the course of 2015 he has developed a real passion for maths and enjoyed working with his tutor.”
"Hi Nic, awesome news ....... my daughter achieved 5B in her latest e-asttle test!! She (and I) are so happy, she is soooo proud of herself, thank you so much for all your efforts with her, it has really paid off! I want to thank you for working so well with my girl. She has NEVER achieved a higher result than her sisters, she cried at the end of last year saying that she never did as well as them.....this year she has now done better. She deserves to be proud of herself, and now she is thanks to your efforts.
Cheers Nic, from a very happy parent!"
"Hi Julie, just writing to say thank you so much for all you have done in such a short space of time. My daughter's confidence is now shooting through the roof. Numbers aren't a blurry mess any more that don't make sense. Maths is now exciting, she is even asking her teacher to do harder things with her that push her even more. When she got in the car this afternoon the funny thing was that Maths was all she talked about. My little sport star forgot to even tell me about touch trials that morning. A seriously HUGE change in such a short period of time. Love it! Booked and paid for all of next year already!"
Lisa, Murrays Bay
“A big thank you for the excellent Thinking Caps classes you provide - my daughter’s attitude to Maths has changed completely. A big difference, THANK YOU!”
Rebecca, Murrays Bay
“Just want to say thank you for your service! My two kids love Thinking Caps. They think I'm giving them a treat! My third daughter says “it's not fair I don't do Thinking Caps!” Anyone would think I'd sent them to Disney land!!!"
"Many thanks for the great feedback. I was going to email you this evening to let you know how much our son enjoyed the class, how he had lots of fun, and how happy he was to come home and show us his maths book and flashcards. We are also pleased to see the progress he has made after just one class! Thank you for making learning fun and helping our boy to improve his maths!"
Anna, Murrays Bay
"Thank you so much for your great feedback on our son. It is great to see he has made such wonderful progress and I think the confidence he has gained from Thinking Caps has influenced his attitude to his overall schooling.
We really appreciate how you have managed to "tune-in" to him and make such great progress. We will continue to recommend your programme to other parents!"
Holly, Browns Bay
“Thanks Thinking Caps! My daughter was telling me she's understanding things she never could of before! To see her light up when explaining things to me because she actually 'gets it' is so beautiful! In fact I think it is giving her confidence in her other school work too. She spent so long last night on science – really trying to prepare for a test today.
So thank YOU! What you are giving her is not only skill but self-esteem, and that makes a mothers soul sing!”
Fleur, North Shore
“I must say I have been very pleased with our son’s progress and I have seen a great improvement in his Maths. I thank you so very much for the help we have been given with our son. I will highly recommend your lessons and would not hesitate in passing on my recommendations to anyone.”
“We have had a good chat with our daughter over the holidays and she would like to try this first term without Thinking Caps to see how she copes with her Maths. She has really enjoyed her time with you guys and her Maths has improved significantly under your tutoring. If she starts to struggle during the term, we will be in contact.”
Simon and Sarah, Murrays Bay
“We were very impressed and pleased with the results we have had from using Thinking Caps over the past few years and are thankful for all the time and effort that has been put in to assist our son with his education. So once again thank you for your service.
