It’s helping her gain confidence back in the classroom

“Most importantly my daughter loves Cluey and feels she learning. Her tutor connects with her and she’s confident in communicating her own needs. As a Year 10 student it’s great that she’s motivated to study and it’s helping her gain confidence back in the classroom. Thank you Cluey and Joel.”
