Through their hard-work and dedication to students struggling with VCE subjects (me being one of them), Dr. Study had truly helped me attain a higher ATAR than what I thought was possible. Their quality tutoring showcasing their knowledge of their specialised fields, and their ability to connect with their students in order to keep the learning interactive and enjoyable are among the reasons that I would recommend this place to any other students that struggle in school.

Thank you Dr Progress and Olga in particular for giving my son the confidence he was lacking. Your help and guidance as well as constant support ensured that he finally realised not only what he wanted to achieve but also started to believe that his dream is within his reach. He would not have done that without you. Your are truly remarkable with your knowledge and professionalism. Your dedication and scientific approach to studies is second to none.

I am writing this note to indicate how good the curriculum at Dr Progress was for children. The content of the course and the excellent interactive nature of the staff made it easy for children it master the content quiet easily. I found that Dr Abeysekera and her experienced team are really well tailored for teaching, coaching and tutoring students at primary, high school and University level. They also prepare graduates for medical school entry by teaching them different subjects for GAMSAT and prepare research manuscripts and UCAT. I suggest that parents of students and graduates to attend this course in order for students/graduates to be successful.

A very happy mother as my daughter has excelled in her writing triple-fold after attending Essay Excellence classes by Dr Progress last year. She has been challenged in her writing to take it to the next level.Here''s her testimony:As a Dr. Progress – Essay Excellence student, I have first-hand experience in how the tuition works. Classes here are great, and I love going to them every week. Classes here are organised, structured well and changed for each student’s needs. We have children of a range of ages in each class, from kinder kids to VCE students. Everyone participates in discussions and share’s their ideas with the others. Personally, Dr. Progress focuses on my preference for working by myself. Other students like to work with others and verbalise their ideas. I started 12 months ago, and I have seen a massive improvement in my writing skills. I’ve been introduced to new writing techniques, sentence structures and different kinds of essays (just to name a few). Overall, I am a much better writer than I was before and that’s all thanks to Dr. Progress.
