Thanks to all my past students for letting me share in your journeys

"My daughter has just graduated from year 12 and was tutored by Alan, mainly for Physics, but also for Math B and Chemistry, for her final year. She received an OP1 with a VHA10 for both physics and chemistry. Alan is an amazing teacher who not only knows the content of each subject but also the typical assignments which are required. He goes above and beyond to give his students the best results. I would strongly recommend Alan to any person wishing to get what you pay for. We will be keeping in contact if the need arises through my daughters university years." Julie Logan (Sheldon) - 2018


"We wanted to thank you so very much for your support of our son with his Chemistry and Maths in the final term of 2016.  He graduated with a very good OP which will allow him to undertake his first preference at Uni – which for him is a wonderful result.  We know your support with these two subjects made a significant difference and built his confidence to achieve these very solid results.

We are very fortunate to have people like yourself in the community, with high level teaching skills and such a passion for assisting our young people as they strive to achieve their goals, particularly through Yr 12, which is a challenge to many of them. Thank you again." Kathy & Garry (Carindale) - 2016


"Alan is an inspirational tutor - he helped my daughter to enjoy maths for the first time and she went on to achieving an A in maths B after really struggling through the first few years of high school." - Wendy (Rochedale) -  2012


"Prof" Alan is no stereotype academic - his warmth and friendly attitude made it easy for my son to connect with him and respond to his practical approach. Nathan's understanding of maths and chemistry has improved beyond belief". - Helen (Eight Mile Plains) - 2010


"Thanks so much "Prof" Alan! Brodie is so grateful for helping him to really understand what calculus is all about - and it's helped him in physics as well. Exams last term were a blessing. It's so nice to be made so welcome in your home too.  Great coffee!" -  Bek (Runcorn) - 2005


"At almost 30 years of age, going back and learning physics for the first time seemed like an impossibility.  Alan helped me to understand the basic principles and foundations of physics in Sonography. He made learning fun for a busy, tired mum!  Now I have successfully passed a very challenging physics course for my post graduate studies. I can't thank him enough for converting something that seemed awfully daunting into a great personal achievement."  -  Tiana (Bayside) - 2016


"I wanted to thank you again for all the help you've given me over the past two years. I have to admit, when mum first suggested driving an hour early every Saturday to be tutored, I wasn't exactly thrilled. However, as usual she was right. Even just the one session per week proved extremely valuable (in fact I usually learnt more in those two hours than I had over the entire week). It really has been extremely beneficial for me to have your help. I ended up with an OP 2, which I'm very satisfied with, given I was expecting something around a 4. Either way it was easily good enough to get me into Eng/Sci at UQ." - NC (Wooloowin) - 2017


“Prof Alan was a fantastic tutor – incredibly inspirational and gave me a vastly improved understanding of maths. I had a very successful outcome in my final exams. His wealth of experience using maths in research and real world applications makes all the difference.  I'm fortunate to have found a tutor who values learning for life.” Y.B. (Camp Hill) - 2008


“Dr Knight has been a remarkable tutor; he helped me immensely when I was studying high school chemistry and maths, structuring concepts and theories and bringing it to life in practical examples. Being able to grasp these basic principles has given me the confidence to further my studies in this field in university. His dedication to students is second to none and he has been nothing but encouraging and supportive of my studies. Maths and chemistry never have to be scary again!” – C.W. (Sunnybank) - 2007


"Prof Alan Knight is a world class tutor. I was a person who started an engineering degree and did not know the basic’s of algebra or calculus. Alan helped me throughout my engineering degree in mathematics and physics, showing me the inner details and applications of mathematics through his crystal-clear explanations. His ability to explain the fundamentals of differential calculus through to the application of Laplace transforms truly turns learning into discovery." - B. Dunne - Eight Mile Plains - 2013


"Thanks Alan for providing such a wonderful learning environment and for all the support and understanding in my quest to gain University entrance. Your patience and encouragement got me through what at first seemed like a totally insurmountable challenge." - Robin (Capalaba) - 2009
