Personalised Tutoring for Powerful Results
We Inspire Academic Success
GK Consultants is committed to providing the finest possible tutorial support in all aspects of its operations. We guarantee that we will uphold the highest standards of academic integrity and convey a clear message to all our students that honour and integrity are paramount ideals in all academic pursuits.
GK Consultants strives to instill in its students a life-long love of learning and the skills that will gradually increase personal confidence and academic independence. In this regard we will support students in such a way as to allow each student to realise his or her potential and produce his or her own original work to the highest standard attainable. We will not write papers for students nor do graded assignments or take-home tests or examinations. Our expert team of tutors will guide and inspire but never take the actual responsibility of learning and creating away from the student. We believe that all students must feel a complete sense of ownership with respect to any work that has been produced for presentation to a teacher at their mainstream school or college. In this way we are confident that our very positive and mutually supportive relationship with schools, colleges and universities will always continue.

A Message from the Founder
Dear Students, Parents and Educators,
Finding the right private tutor in Bangkok, or indeed any large city, can indeed be a daunting task. There is an immense range from which to choose and it’s hard to know which is the best choice for a particular student. Of course a word-of-mouth recommendation is always useful but not always feasible and a tutor who is good with one student might not be quite as effective with another. In some ways choosing a tutor is a bit like a “Lucky Dip”. My own experience of working with individual students is vast. I find individualised instruction to be immensely rewarding and this is a direct result of having watched so many students realise that they have become much more confident and are now reaping the rewards of academic success. While no-one can absolutely guarantee that a student will be successful after a few lessons, what I can guarantee is that the students with whom I work will begin to recognise that they understand and learn much more quickly and effectively through the personal attention tutoring provides. What have previously been baffling concepts become comfortably within the student’s intellectual grasp. The following points are particularly worthy of note:
To you, the Student:
As a student enrolled at GK Consultants – Thailand you will be given a very special opportunity: that is, you will be assigned to a tutor whose experience in teaching either primary or secondary age students in a one-on-one situation is extensive.
You will be able to forge a student-tutor partnership that will enable you to really enjoy increasing confidence and success.
You will have access to a very experienced and gifted tutor who actually knows how to teach even the most challenging concepts and those in other subjects and disciplines.
You will have fun learning Maths – hard to believe? Believe me, it’s true!
You will take pride and pleasure in learning whichever subject(s) you require tutoring in.
If you are preparing for IGCSE, SAT, ACT, A Level, IB DP, AP Calculus or one of the many other standardised tests, you will be able to reach new levels of achievement by systematically learning a comprehensive range of techniques for each type of question.
You will gain an appreciation for life-long learning – this transportable gift is absolutely priceless!
To you, the Parent:

You can rest assured that our tutors will give your child, and you, his or her best attention and the benefit of their considerable experience as educational specialists in their respective fields.
Enrolling your child at GK Consultants – Thailand involves your making a substantial investment in your child’s future – and this is something you are already doing! Many parents prefer to make an initial appointment to meet me, the Director, prior to enrolling their child. If I were in your position, I would want do the same, so please call us in order to set up a meeting. There is absolutely no obligation or charge for this initial consultation.
Your child’s tutor will be working regularly through a one-to-one, customised academic programme specifically geared towards enhancing your child’s strengths, addressing your child’s weaknesses and increasing your child’s confidence. The tutor will be available at any mutually convenient time [delete words] to provide you with meaningful feedback on your child’s progress.
Fundamentally, the GK Consultants – Thailand philosophy is that the tutor, your child and you, the parent, are a team engaged in a common pursuit – your child’s academic success achieved by the most efficient and comfortable means possible.
To all of you who have kindly taken the time to read these pages:
Just the very mention of the words “test” or “exam” often strikes fear into the hearts and minds of so many people, young and old alike. Why is this? Well, I don’t think there is one simple answer. It could be the result of a bad experience in a particular class, an unsympathetic teacher at some point in a child’s schooling or the absence of any the opportunity for a student to be taught by someone who not only loves their subject for its own sake [delete comma] but who also wants to impart that love to students.
What I am offering is a chance for every student to put any negative experience that they might have had with their education behind them and take this chance to learn an aspect of the subject with someone who really wants them to have the opportunity to enjoy success.
No matter what a student’s level in a particular subject is, let us show you how to think, understand, learn and present your ideas logically so that you too can begin to learn in the most efficient and effective way possible.
GK Consultants – Thailand is not just a Maths tutoring service. It is an educational organisation that offers tuition in critical reading, creative writing, a wide variety of academic subjects, college application preparation and college and university entrance essay planning and production.

What I promise you is a commitment to your learning, a commitment to your being able feel more confident about your academic progress and test preparation and also a commitment to helping you lose any anxiety you now have so that you can unlock and achieve your full potential in tests, examinations, college/university entrance and studies generally.
