‘After many years in education, it is my belief that good quality teachers, who already have a love of their subject, perform better when they are allowed more autonomy in the way they teach and present their subject. Macclesfield Tutorial College has an excellent staff who are supportive and creative, whose teaching priority is to maximise the performance of their students by inspiring them with their own love of a subject. We offer flexibility and quality as well as expediency to those in a hurry. The tutors’ experience and dedication to their students is evident in our students’ successes at Macclesfield Tutorial College.’ : Mr Furphy (Principal)
