The tutors listed below have all completed the MILA 1 course as a minimum of training. Many have additional qualifications and may also be trained teachers, teachers with special needs training, speech pathologists, educational psychologists and occupational therapists.

Spalding Australia is not endorsing or vouching for the quality of the tutor. We are simply providing a list of people who have completed Spalding Authorised Training and are therefore permitted to advertise themselves as being a Spalding Tutor. It is hoped that you will be able to find someone in your area from the list who will suit your child’s and your needs.

Spalding Australia suggests that tutors charge around the $100 per hour for tuition. This is purely a suggestion and many charge less or more according to their level of expertise and qualifications.
