There is a growing body of evidence that indicates the strong correlation between sound English skills and a good HSC mark. Accordingly, for most students, tuition in this subject can be essential if they are to realise their personal goals.
Our Individual Tuition Program covers reading comprehension and written expression of a wide range of text types, such as:
- Information reports
- Media texts
We also have a strong focus on developing strong and embedding skills in grammar, spelling, punctuation and sentence structure. Competence and fluency in all these areas are critical for success in high school.
Students learn to analyse and write texts, including essays, in a very sophisticated way. Study skills covered include:
- Note-taking and summarising
- Memory techniques
- Time management
- Goal setting
Competence in all these areas is critical for success in high school.
A strong performance in English is the foundation of a good HSC result, as it is the only compulsory subject, with at least two units counted in the ATAR. This makes it very important for you to be developing your English skills before starting Year 11.
