Sumantha McMahon

Hello! I’m an experienced tutor and trainer with a strong track record of success.

My Approach

My teaching style is entirely student-focused, regardless of whether I teach one-to-one or groups.

In my experience, being solely results-focused rarely produces great results. That’s why I embed confidence, motivation and mastery in all of my lessons.

In addition to being a full-time tutor, I lean on my corporate training and teacher-training skills to deliver adult training.

My Story

Teaching is the most rewarding career I've had and it has given me lifelong skills - you don't just work as a teacher, you end up being one!


It will come as little surprise that as a school teacher, I had a poor work-life balance.


But the thing that frustrated me the most was just how much I had to do that was unrelated to supporting my students.


Now, I'm honoured and delighted to be able to sustain a full-time career as a private tutor - I get to see students flourish, grow in confidence and develop a love for the subject.


I also support homeschooled students.  It's amazing to be able to strip away all the things that don't matter and only focus on what will best support them.
