Academic Development & Scholarships Preparation's tutorials are in accordance with the Australian Curriculum, and focus on academic writing, problem-solving,
examination techniques and interview skills.
Maths and Science
Maths and Science are taught in relation to each other up to Year 9, developing problem solving skills, as required by scholarship/entrance exams and the Australian Curriculum. We also support our senior students in excelling in Maths and Science VCE subjects.
English tutorials are interactive combining essay writing styles and techniques, grammar and mechanics of language, literature analysis together with examination and time management competencies.
We aim to give our students the edge in these highly competitive exams. For over 10 years we have prepared candidates for the independent schools of Victoria and for Melbourne Boys’ High, MacRobertson Girls’ High, Nossal, Cory, and John Monash Science School, so they stand out from the rest.
An integral part of our programmes is to empower our students to speak confidently and articulately in interviews, in their oral presentations and in all professional engagements they find themselves in.
Business & Workplace English
Business and Workplace English Programmes include language used in meeting procedures and presentations in the English-speaking world; strategic planning; mission and vision statements; and other related executive processes.
UMAT and IELTS
UMAT tests and interview preparation for Medical and Health Science courses, and IELTS written and oral examinations can be demanding. Proficiency in all areas of the tests is our focus, and tutors (who were also past examiners) will deliver tailor-made tutorials for the specific needs of each candidate to ensure optimum success.
Academic Development & Scholarships Preparation recognises that a collaborative learning environment, which builds on social engagement and the exchange of ideas, helps to develop confident and competent students who can think outside the box. Our specialised tutorials conducted in small groups of five students or less, as well as our one-on-one tuition, are in accordance with the Australian Curriculum, and guarantee that each tutorial is engaging and interactive, focusing on academic writing, promblem-solving, examination techniques and interview skills.
All tutorials are led by a qualified and experienced tutor for 1.5 hours per subject of choice (maths, english, science). If students require tutoring for multiple subjects, the duration is negotiable.
Students are expected to complete set homework requirements weekly, and are supported via emails between tutorials, as well as extensive study notes and other resources.
