In2learning Rotorua is a professional tutoring service which assists Years 1 to 13 students with improving their literacy and mathematics skills. At present, we are tutoring a small number of students from Kaharoa School at our Hinemoa Street centre. We realise that parents commit a lot of time and expense to bringing their children to us for tuition, so in 2021, we would like to make life a little easier by providing lessons at the school.
