With access to our library of video lessons that show you how to construct an essay, overview the module and the board of studies expectations for the module as well as how to create an essay that you will be able to use in your assessment tasks, trial exams and final HSC exams regardless of what question you are presented with.

The FergHSC library of video lessons give you access to the same material that is accessed by our face to face tuition students who attend our Bondi Junction learning centre each week. Fergus is passionate about teaching students how to write great essays and in these video tutorials you will learn how to create essays that will open the doors of opportunity with a fantastic ATAR.



Essay Building Templates

Start the ball rolling using our deconstructed analysis

The Essay Building Template (EBT) is a unique system to FergHSC that allows students to construct their essays in small chunks rather than becoming overwhelmed with an essay and not knowing where to start. The EBT is based on the principle of eating an elephant, one bite at a time.

The EBT also provides a structure for the essay and as the boxes are filled students are building their essay making the process of writing their actual essay more efficient and more succinct.

Students are provided with a sample excellent EBT and the corresponding essay that was built using that same EBT as well as having the ability to build their own EBT and submit it for feedback before moving onto writing their essay.



Live webcasts

Ferg hosts live stream events for members only.

In 2012 we launched our Live Webcasts. Fergus presents on a new text to an audience of online viewers who were able to access the webcast live from home on their laptop or iPad. Students may freely participate by asking questions throughout the webcast, or just listen in and learn! Webcasts will resume in Term 1, 2013.





Colour Coded Essays

Learn the skills to write your own band 6 essay from examples.

View a number of sample excellent essays for each of your modules/texts so you can see what an excellent essay looks like with all of the quotes and techniques highlighted so that students get a visual representation of how many quotes and techniques are needed for an A-Range essay.



Tutor Moderated Forum

Ask a question and get answers from our team of tutors.

After you purchase a module of work you will have access to the forum that corresponds to that particular text which will allow you to discuss any problems you might be having with it as well as view other students questions relating to it. Our team of expert tutors will be responding to queries that have been posted in the forum.


Hi Ferg, Just thought I’d let you know that my ATAR overall was AMAZING! Thank you so much for all your help throughout the past year. I really appreciate the effort you and the rest of the tutors put in. :) I couldn’t have done it without you! Kind regards, LG(HSC 2011)
