About Our Director

Hi! My name is Alysha Griffiths and I am the owner of Breakaway Tuition.

I opened Breakaway Tuition in 2016 when I realised that there was a significant lack of educational assistance services in the Southern Highlands.

I am a passionate, enthusiastic and driven individual who truly believes in the power of education and what it allows our children to access throughout their lives.

  • Over 8 years of teaching experience.
  • 10 years experience teaching guitar, singing and piano.
  • Passion for learning.
  • Bachelor of Arts (English and History).
  • Master of Teaching in Secondary Education.
  • Qualified Tutor of the ATA.
  • Working with Children’s Check.

I believe teachers should be mentors, beyond just delivering the content of the curriculum and this is an important focus of Breakaway Tuition and that which our name was created upon.

From the outset of my business adventure, the only thing I have wanted to demonstrate to my students is that they CAN break away from EVERYTHING that they feel has always held them back. This means that if I think there is another avenue of assistance we need to look into, I will suggest this and guide the family through the process.

Learning is a bunch of puzzle pieces that all fit together. Each of these need to be addressed for learning to be optimised.

I want to show children that they are ALL special, talented, intelligent, unique and capable. I want my students and my tutors to work as a team TOGETHER. I want every child that enters our centre to feel COMFORTABLE and leave with CONFIDENCE and the knowledge that they can ACHIEVE everything that they dream about.
