Highly qualified tutor

I am a passionate primary and secondary teacher, bringing years of professional experience to each tutoring session. You will not find another tutor in the Canberra or Queanbeyan area, who is more dedicated to improving student outcomes. 

How to ensure your child's success

Utilise the FREE assessment

The assessment is vital in helping me to better understand your child's needs. This will allow us to come up with a plan which will ensure the best outcome for your child.  

Allow enough time to see real improvement

If your child is struggling with literacy and/or numeracy, it will take time for them to reach the appropriate age/stage level. Allow for at least one term of weekly sessions.  

Utilise the FREE resources

If I am doing my job effectively, your child will no longer require my assistance.  Using a gradual release of responsibility approach, your child will learn effective study skills that will allow them to become independent learners. Take advantage of the FREE resources and reduce the cost of tuition.  

Utilise the FREE online catch up sessions.

Once your child has successfully reached their full potential, take advantage of FREE online catch up sessions.  

Utilise the FREE teacher communication service

As part of your child's weekly tuition, I will work with their teacher as a 'bridge' to effective communication.  

Ask questions

Communication with parents is vital in creating the ideal learning environment for your child. Once your child becomes my student, I am completely dedicated to their success. I am never too busy to answer your questions. You are free to call or email me at anytime. 

About Us


Hi, I am Paul Dorsett, founder and owner of Dorsett Education. I have had a long and diverse career as a Teacher, both in Primary and Secondary schools within Canberra, Queanbeyan and rural NSW.  I have also held leadership positions in areas such as teacher quality and student welfare.  Over the years, I have developed a passion for preparing Primary students for High School, as well as supporting struggling High School students.  The transition to High School is daunting, often causing anxiety and sometimes disengagement.  I have years of experience empowering children and young adults to thrive academically, socially and emotionally. I look forward to making this transition process a joyful experience for your child!  

Evidence based best practice.

A voice for your child

One of the issues children often face when commencing Secondary School is a lack of communication with their teachers.  High School teachers are busy people and assignments can be confusing and overwhelming at times. I will work with your child's teachers as a 'bridge' for effective communication.

Every student has unique needs for support. Tell me more about your child's needs and I will create an individual tuition plan that will help them to improve.
