The best private tutors Sydney has to offer - Experienced, Effective and Affordable tutoring to help students achieve their academic goals

How it works

Our formula for your success is:

  • Experienced tutors that are experts in their subjects, experts at the HSC, and excellent communicators
  • Structured courses with regular exam-style homework that gives students practice for their assessments
  • Accountability of our students’ progress and development. We actively track student progress, and we go to extra lengths to support our students’ continual improvement. For example: we provide regular exams that ensure students are actually improving, our tutors follow up on areas of weakness shown by students’ homework, and our tutors provide after-hours homework support.

Why Private Tutoring

The argument for the need for tutoring is simple:

Now you may wonder “how exactly does tutoring help increase my results?” Well for several reasons. An internal survey of our students revealed the following as top reasons why they find our services so helpful:

  • Teachers at their school (for a particular subject, or in general) are unmotivated / disinterested / lack the ability to communicate with students effectively. To be fair, we can’t just blame teachers for this – this issue is a symptom of deeper structural problems of Australia’s education system which we won’t go into here.
  • Most students (particularly from schools in disadvantaged areas) simply don’t care about their education, leaving the few students that do care in an environment where they have no real standard to compare themselves to (how do you know how well you’re doing relative to the rest of NSW if everyone around you does not care about their HSC?)

The unfortunate truth is if you currently don’t go to a top selective or private school, you’re probably missing out on the resources and environment that produces highly successful HSC graduates.

Students in top schools have the benefit of being in a healthy competitive environment where they get exposure to other high-achieving students, and therefore a good sense of their own standing relative to the goals they want to achieve.

For example, students in James Ruse form study groups each year after the trials to help each other boost the collective pool of marks for their external HSC exams – it’s this sort of cooperative behaviour that contributes the extremely successful results of top-ranked selective schools, year after year.

If you do go to a top selective or private school, tutoring can also help you improve your internal ranks at school (rank is what matters to your end result, not simply what marks you’re getting) or maintain your top ranks.

If you’re struggling in a difficult subject, tutoring can help you stay afloat and eventually get ahead of the curve rather than face the alternative of dropping the subject (generally, difficult subjects like extension maths, are much more rewarding to your ATAR than ‘easier’ subjects due to the effect of HSC scaling.

We understand all these issues all too well, and our services are designed to give motivated students the results they deserve.
