To many of us, one tutoring college is pretty much the same as another. Think again! When Amber Fox set out to establish Clever Fox Education in 2015, she was determined to bring to it the high standards of integrity and professionalism she epitomised in her teaching career…a period of some twenty-five years, in a variety of schools both here and overseas. With her multiple qualifications and wide experience, Amber personally ensures that each student is treated sensitively, as an individual, with his /her own needs and aspirations.
Whether tuition is in regard to selective high school entrance, scholarship assistance, competitive placement in a particular school, NAPLAN, ICAS, writing, or general assistance with English at primary or high school levels, a positive, supportive and encouraging approach is the benchmark of Clever Fox Education. Materials are designed by highly experienced, senior educators, and monitored before implementation by Amber herself, and by her Assistant Principal, Helen Cassar.

In 2020 and 2021, some 90% of Clever Fox Education students were offered placement in such selective high schools as James Ruse, Sydney Boys, North Sydney Boys, Sydney Girls, North Sydney Girls, Baulkham Hills High, Normanhurst Boys, Sydney Secondary College, Girraween High, Fort St and others.
Clever Fox Education students have also gained significant scholarships to such prestigious private schools as Sydney Grammar School, The Scots College, Trinity Grammar, Newington College, Ascham, Kambala, Meriden, The King’s School and Santa Sabina. To date, the total value of such scholarships exceeds $3.5 million. Students and their parents have expressed their gratitude and appreciation. The gaining of such scholarships provides financial assistance which greatly facilitates educational opportunities, perhaps otherwise not accessible. Naturally, as CEO, Amber Fox is rightly proud of the quality of the programs her company provides, the achievements of her students, and the testimonials of support and appreciation so freely given by parents.
Wendy and Richard, parents of a Year 5 child, write: “We were so excited to learn that our daughter is the National Champion of the Storyathon writing competition in the upper primary category. I’m sincerely thankful to Amber for all the effort she has put into bringing our daughter’s writing skills to an extraordinary level. We highly recommend you send your kids to Amber!”
Over and above all this, however, stand her comments as a dedicated, committed teacher. “It is so reassuring to see the tangible results of our students at Clever Fox Education, and to know that their parents and carers appreciate our efforts on behalf of their children. The teacher in me, however, cannot help but be proud of the fact that our students are happy and fulfilled, seeing both the value and ‘fun’ in the work we carefully structure for them. After all, as the Roman educator, Marcus Fabius Quintilian said, ‘the job of the teacher is to give victories to students.’
If you’re looking for a trustworthy, professional and results-oriented tutoring company, look no further than Clever Fox Education.
