Helpful to rural families
“My daughter needed tutoring in high school English and we live in a rural location. It was hard to find someone to tutor her locally and difficult to organise a location. Her Cluey tutor is fantastic and has helped her improve a lot. The sessions are regular and I get detailed feedback as a parent. Highly recommend.”
