Our Tuition Team

Started and led by experienced teachers Warren and Pauline Sutton, Clever Kids Tuition New Plymouth sets high standards for their tutors and students. All tutors are New Zealand qualified and experienced in the classroom. Not only are they qualified in specialist areas, but tutors are also trained to build confidence in their students and overcome any difficulties. Students of any age, are capable of putting themselves down and doubting their own abilities, which often leads to withdrawal, frustration and self doubt. Clever Kids tutors are trained to spot problems, turn them around and re-build confidence – a key factor in classroom success.

All tuition directly links back to children’s classroom learning and the New Zealand curriculum.
