We set ourselves apart from the fact that our highest priority is improving our students’ results. We never forget that our goal is to maximise our students' ATAR, and we are dedicated to achieving this end.
Our best aspects set us apart from the rest:

Our teachers are dedicated to the success of our students.
We only hire teachers who know their stuff inside out! All members of our teaching staff are of a university level or beyond. This ensures that our teachers will never come across something they do not fully understand on the HSC level.
Our teachers are not only experts in their field, but they are also excellent teachers. They can explain complex concepts in a way that is easy to understand, without sacrificing technical accuracy. This is highly important, because students need to genuinely understand (not memorise) in order to score Band 6 / E4.
Even the most shy students gain the confidence to ask questions in class, because our teachers make our classes fun and engaging.
Our teachers will ensure our students are continually improving, by providing regular feedback to students about how they can improve. Unlike some other tutoring colleges, our teachers always fully mark each week's homework, with full comments every time a question is not perfectly answered.
Our teachers even help our students while at home! Students are able to ask any question from school or our homework on our student forums, and receive instant help from their class teacher, without needing to wait until next class.
Our students understand, not memorise.
To score a Band 6 / E4 (the highest bands), students actually need to understand every concept required by the syllabus. They simply can’t rely on memorisation.
We hold this attitude very firmly in the way we teach our students. Our teachers will teach our students until they understand the underlying principles behind any concept, and we simply do not settle for any less.
Understanding the theory is most of the work, but exam execution is an important skill in itself. Our course programs also cater for this aspect of the HSC. Our teachers are experts at HSC exams, how they are marked, and how to best answer all types of questions.
Our students will receive plenty of practice in doing HSC style questions. Each week’s homework is structured like actual HSC questions, and our teachers will mark them as if they were HSC questions. So after a few terms with us, our students would have done hundreds of HSC style questions!
During review classes, we also provide practice HSC exams for homework (written by our teachers), preparing students for the real thing long before it comes.
Our learning materials comprehensively address every possible requirement of the syllabus. They are also structured in an easy to read format.
Our English notes are geared towards preparing students for the paramount goal of being able to craft a Band 6 essay in their exams. We provide comprehensive analysis on specific prescribed texts, showing students explicitly what is significant in each part of their texts and how to apply them to exam questions.
Students are also given plenty of model answers to demonstrate the standard required of them in different types of exam questions. Students are shown how to respond in order to most efficiently fulfil the requirements of the marking criteria.
We know learning maths is very different to other subjects. Maths techniques are learnt through example and demonstration more often than pure theory alone.
Our maths notes are structured by providing a theoretical explanation, followed by many examples with solutions, covering all concepts required in the syllabus.
Examples are carefully designed to illustrate all possible ways a type of question can be asked, minimising the chance our students are caught off-guard by an unfamiliar type of question. Homework questions are always written in the same style as the type students encounter in exams.
Our HSC sciences (e.g. Chemistry and Physics) materials are structured according to syllabus dot-points. This ensures the entire syllabus is covered comprehensively, leaving nothing unseen before the exam.
Simple concepts are covered briefly, and harder concepts are explored into greater detail. Sections of the syllabus that are likely to come up in an essay-style question will be covered in depth, exploring different aspects of discussion and perspectives. This highly targeted approach ensures our students undergo the most efficient and effective way to study.
We strongly believe that a successful business can only be sustainable if it treats its customers fairly and with honesty. We take our feedback very seriously, and are always trying our best to do the best for our students.
