Inforum Academy of Excellence

The gold Coast's Premium Tutoring and Coaching Academy

Inforum Academy of Excellence is the Gold Coast’s newest, premium tutoring college.

Established by qualified teacher and director, Simon Craft, Inforum is located in our own campus right here in Southport.

At Inforum Academy of Excellence we believe that:

  • Learning is a lifelong process best started young;
  • Developing problem-solving skills and excellent study habits early in life builds confidence and success;
  • The best learning takes place in small groups with a teacher (not in front of a computer screen.)

Our teaching staff have many years of experience working in Australia and overseas so we understand students from many cultural backgrounds.

Furthermore, at Inforum, we also offer many exciting programs for parents and siblings to join while you wait for your children to be tutored by our qualified teachers.

Inforum’s Essentials Program covers from Prep to Year 5 and gives students the confidence to master and then extend on what they’ve studied at school in a positive, supportive and academically focussed environment.

Our tutoring program, based on the Australian Curriculum, and has two important features:

  • Firstly, we focus on English and Maths, ensuring that every student is confident with the concepts and skills that they will encounter in their year level at school.
  • Secondly, we extend students further by incorporating aims from higher grades.  This is especially useful for those who aim to study an Excellence Program at school or win a scholarship to a private school.

Why Are We Different?

Since opening in 2007, we have welcomed over 10,000 students from more than 30 countries through our doors, with students ranging in age from 5 years to 80 years studying with us, with levels from complete Beginners in English to Advanced-level students wishing to enter University.

Inforum is a recognised preparation centre for Cambridge University English Qualifications.

Inforum Academy of Excellence has a wonderful college campus in the middle of Southport, adjacent to Australia Fair shopping centre, where you and your child have access to all of our great facilities.

We believe the best learning takes place in small groups with an expert teacher, who will guide and motivate students much better than a computer screen ever will!

From children 3 years of age to Year 5, and their parents, Inforum Academy is for everyone.

Step 1 covers Year 1 program plus some from Year 2. Challenge is available for students who wish to learn more outside Academy by Seesaw.

When your time or budget will not allow your child to join a whole term, why not have them come to get some assistance to do homework when they need it?

When holidays come, it’s time to look for soft skills apart from Maths and English. Money management, problem solving skills, sharing skills, cooking skills, STEM Program, etc. Find out more later on our Facebook.

Parents can drop their children at the college and one of our staff will be on hand to take them directly into the college – you don’t have to leave your car.
