Coronavirus Update: Online Tutoring

The Turning Point has been successfully tutoring students online since 2017. We are well equipped to help parents manage the new reality presented by COVID-19.
The online lessons are individual lessons. They are prepared to assist each child with their unique challenges. And there is no risk involved!
All you need is a device and a stable internet connection.
Our tutors are available right throughout the day for online tutoring.

Educational and emotional support for learners

The Turning Point was started by Tanya McCarthy in 2013. Her mission and vision is to provide the best educational and emotional support and to make a difference in every child The Turning Point works with.

Home school facilitation

In January 2015, we started our Home School Facilitation Programme. We tutor home school students from Grade 1 - 12. Tutoring can be at our centre, or in the comfort of your own home.

Extra lessons & remedial therapy

We have a team of 50 extra lesson tutors and Remedial Therapists who are able to travel to the students home to help with extra lessons or Remedial Therapy. We are able to accommodate learners from Grade 1 – 12. Our extra lessons are now also available online.

Reading lessons

We have a team of tutors who are especially trained to teach reading, as we strongly believe that this is fundamental to all learning. These tutors are able to help young children who are starting to learn to read, as well as older children who are well entrenched in school, but who’s reading is not age/ grade appropriate.


We personally interview all our tutors and handpick onlynthe best for the job. They all have to have police clearance certificates in order to tutor for The Turning Point. We work closely with our tutors to train them, encourage them and supply them with resources for their lessons.

Educational psychology

We have a team of Educational Psychologists and Registered Counsellors who are able to do the full range of scholastic, cognitive and emotional assessments (Full Psycho-Ed, Career Guidance and Counselling, Subject Choice Assessments etc). They also offer Play Therapy and Counselling.

Best choice I've made for my two daughters (Grade 10 and 5). Their school performance has improved since started TTP. The tutors are very kind, professional and helpful.

Turning Point literally was a turning point for us.
The best choice we made, my daughter has been so happy and has excelled overall in her marks and confidence. Children are given the best attention and help at all times. A wonderful school and excellent teachers.
Thanks Turning Point.

Absolutely the best choice we ever made for our son. We love Turning Point and the amazing support and caring education they offer. They have been a huge part of changing our lives when it came to Troy loving school and showing his potential in an environment suited to him. Thank you Turning Point and Staff for being like family. We love you all. Nicky
