Do you offer one to one tuition?
All of our classes are a group tuition which allows us to cover the topics of where we are in the HSC cycle, time management, how to study effectively and the very important motivation each week. Our service offers a collaborative learning environment where our teacher student ratio is 1 to 3 students. We have a maximum of 14 students in our learning space at any one time and our other services such as weekend tutorial support, 24/7 online tuition and access to HSC markers online makes ours a much more comprehensive approach than being visited once a week by a tutor.
What if my child misses their lesson?
Each week we run a catch up session on Friday at 4pm running through to 5:20pm. In this session students are completing the same exam style task that was completed in their missed session as well as continuing to prepare for any upcoming assessment tasks and exams.
Who will be teaching my child?
All of classes are run by our our team of highly experienced HSC teachers and tutors. We meet each day 2:30pm to prepare for the day’s classes and continually monitor student performance and engagement. All of our teaching staff complete comprehensive training on an ongoing basis to ensure that the delivery of service is of the highest quality. Our tutors are mentored from their commencement of employment as a Junior tutor through to tutor, then onto becoming a senior tutor and ultimately a Team Leader. Our experienced HSC teachers are always in the office and classroom to support students.
What happens at the weekend expert support and supervised study?
At our weekend expert tutor support and supervised study we have two of our tutors providing additional support to students as well as providing an informal mentoring programme. Our tutors are all high achieving past HSC students who are able to relay their own experiences and act as a positive influence to your child as they progress through their own HSC campaign. We also use the weekends to have students participate in practice assessment tasks, which are marked and returned to your student during their allotted class time.
What holiday programmes are offered?
Included in your tuition fees are holiday revision programmes in the July and October holidays for our Year 12 students to prepare students for the Trial Exams and the final HSC exams. This revision programme includes seminars and Mock Trial Exams and will slightly differ between the different subjects however a student would be expected to be at the office between 8 and 10 hours per subject in each set of holidays. Over the holiday period, Study Bootcamps are an optional extra and are not included in regular tuition fees. We do not offer any holiday programmes for Years 9, 10 and 11.
My child needs exam practice, can you help with this?
Exam performance in the final year of your child’s schooling is extremely important as up to 75% of students HSC results will come from their performance in the exam room. We prepare our students for exam situations by starting each weekly session with a short exam style task as well as running full Mock Trial Exams for each of our subjects in July and October to prepare students for the Trial Exams and the final HSC Exams.
