“Kylie was highly recommended as a tutor for our 6 yr old son, by his school, as he has some learning and social difficulties. Kylie is very respectful, warm, playful, calm, engaging and patient. Her educational activities were fun and our son looked forward to seeing her every time. She provided simple exercises, games and ideas for me to use as a parent to engage with our son at home. Her strong knowledge of the education system, children’s development, learning difficulties and diverse learning strategies helped me as a parent to understand our son’s needs better and how best to engage with him to help him reach his full potential. We are blessed to have a person of Kylie’s calibre provide guidance and support to our son and family.
We met Kylie for a consultation regarding our child who has ASD. She helped us understand the supports and assistance that can be accessed in the schooling system. This enabled us to more effectively advocate for our child and work with the school in collaboratively developing an individualised support plan. We would highly recommend Kylie’s consultancy service for parents of special needs children – it will help you navigate the education system and get the best for your child.
Trying to navigate through a learning disorder diagnosis is difficult. Like any adversity your child faces, you find yourself scrolling through Google trying to find ways that you can support them to be the best they can be, all the while maintaining their confidence, minimise their anxiety (and yours) and not letting them find an excuse not to try their very best. Kylie from Northside Tuition and her consultation service really helped me to understand the issue, the tools that were available to me and how to have the conversations with my daughter to reduce her anxiety. She helped me advocate for my child at her school, ensuring the right plans and support were in place for her. Above all else she helped me to have the confidence to face this adversity head on and help my daughter to find her way to excel.
Kylie’s help and guidance has been invaluable. Her strategies and one on one approach together with her knowledge of the school curriculum, has helped Harrison’s attitude and aptitude across a range of subjects. We can not thank and recommend Kylie from Northside Tuition enough.

“Our daughter has been tutored by Kylie for three years. After seeing several other tutors, we were referred to Kylie. With Kylie’s help, our daughter had gone from a below average student who struggled with all aspects of the curriculum and finding school very stressful to achieving consistently good marks across the board and is now a very dedicated student who enjoys her education. Kylie has not only tutored our daughter with Maths and English, she has helped change her mindset on schooling. Kylie has also guided us, as parents, through the schooling process offering support and advice when needed. Kylie’s love and passion for teaching is one-of-a-kind.”

“Kylie Fedrick is a qualified special education teacher and has been tutoring our son for quite some time now. Jake is 9 years old and has Verbal Dyspraxia and Auditory Processing Disorder. He enjoys the sessions with Kylie because she makes learning enjoyable. Everything is tailored to his learning requirements. This may include playing a game to encourage his learning and long-term recall. He has the wiggles and gets distracted so finds it hard to sit for long but Kylie knows exactly how to work with that.
He asks when he sees Kylie again. We think that speaks volumes!
We would not hesitate to recommend Kylie Fedrick as a highly over-qualified Tutor. Kylie has dedicated half her life to studying and helping children like ours. There is no child she cannot support! Carolyn N.
We are very grateful to Kylie for helping our daughter transition from primary school to high school. Kylie has helped build her confidence enormously from an unhappy student, who struggled so much at school to a confident high school student. My daughter looks forward to her weekly tutoring session with Kylie & we have seen big improvements in her school work as a result. Kylie is very professional, caring and makes learning a fun & positive experience for my daughter. I would highly recommend Kylie to anyone. Vickie O.
“We are so happy to have found Kylie at Northside tuition after a long time of searching to find a suitable tutor for our son Declan. Kylie’s resources and knowledge to help our son is outstanding along with her care and patience. We have recently started with Kylie and have already seen big progress in our son’s maths. I can’t thank Kylie enough and would recommend her as she caters to a variety of needs in learning. ” Kate
