Expert tutoring rated 4.7 out of 5 by parents and students
There are two main reasons why selective schools are a good option for your child: academic and non-academic. Academically students in selective schools learn at a higher level. More importantly, their HSC results are usually scaled up for the ATAR score used to enter university. Why scaled up?
Because the ranking is affected by the individual student performance and the school performance. Not surprisingly, the top performing schools in the HSC are selective schools.
The non-academic reason is even more important. In a selective school your child will be surrounded by like-minded students. These students are highly motivated, focused and academically oriented. These are the connections that your child will have in the future.
In our course students learn not only Maths, English, Writing and Thinking skills. They learn much more. They learn the foundations of problem solving and systematic thinking. They also learn critical thinking which includes inductive and deductive reasoning. Our course teaches students how to think and how to apply their thinking skills under exam conditions.
Teaching a child how to think and how to learn is a game changer. The result is an independent thinker who is capable to apply their knowledge in various scenarios and different contexts, far beyond school and academic settings.
The course exposes students to all genres of texts. It includes all levels of Reading Comprehension and all types of questions that are required for the selective test (Cloze, fill in the gaps, comparing texts and extracts questions). In addition, students expand their vocabulary and learn grammar and punctuation in a structured format.
