The program consists of a tutoring and mentoring component.
Academic tutoring sessions are carefully designed to supplement in class learning.
With the help of a high-achieving recent HSC graduate, we focus on revising key topics, encouraging individual thought, developing students' exam techniques, and improving study skills.
Mentoring sessions are focused on students' aspirations, goals and interests.
We develop a year-long timetable and goal-oriented plan that encourages perseverance and maps out to each student how best they can achieve their own objectives.
We also focus on post-school opportunities, including TAFE and university, as well as scholarships and potential career paths.
Every mentoring and tutoring session is run by a recent high-achieving HSC graduate. All of our mentors have achieved a minimum ATAR of 99 to ensure that students get the best possible assistance. Our mentors are highly knowledgeable of the HSC curriculum and are extremely experienced when it comes to study advice and exam preparation. On top of this, they are able to share with students their experiences of undergraduate life at university, suggest how best to prepare for that, and offer assistance with University course choices and applications.
Mentors connect to students in rural and remote locations on Skype and online content sharing platforms (Google Docs; Drop Box). Sessions are held on a weekly basis to ensure that students stay on track to achieve their goals and regularly gain access to extra resources and assistance.
