Ko te manu e kai ana i te miro nōnā the ngahere. Ko te manu e kai ana i te mātauranga nōnā te ao. 

The bird that consumes the miro berry owns the forest. The bird that consumes knowledge owns the world.

We are no ordinary tuition service. 

Building our ākonga’s confidence in creating and connecting knowledge is at the core of what we do at Boost Your Learning. We are so fortunate and grateful to partner with the Ngāi Tahu iwi who generously provide the Tahua Taunaki Ākonga Learner Support Fund. This fund allows ākonga to access tuition services and educational support in all educational settings.


Our partnership with Ngāi Tahu accredits us to provide tuition to Ngāi Tahu ākonga (from years 1-13) based anywhere in Aotearoa New Zealand. We deliver our one-on-one tuition services online and expertly match ākonga with our experienced and qualified teachers from around the motu.

We just wanted to say that my son has loved his math tuition. Anna has been so engaging and he has come home every week so excited to do his homework - straight away! He is heaps more confident and says he really likes maths now. He thought Anna was really nice and fun to work with. We are so grateful for the Ngāi Tahu funding that helped us access this opportunity. Hopefully we can be back for more next term!
