    Best Tutoring Centre (Year 11 and 12)

    So I've heard that a lot of Selective school kids go to Dr Du, Zhang's, etc. for their Math coaching. Whilst people I know mainly go to either Matrix or Talent 100, I'd like to know the difference between Dr Du/Zhang and Matrix/Talent 100.

    What are the pros and cons for each?
    Which centre teaches thoroughly and helps students achieve the best marks?

    I did Year 10 Matrix Science and that helped me a lot in school but I'm wondering what's the best option for MX1 tutoring in Year 11 & 12.
    Also, does anyone know any good English tutors for Year 11 and 12? I've heard Matrix isn't too good, but never tried it myself. Recommendations are welcome. Same question applies for Phys, Chem and Bio - any good tutors (Matrix is good imo, but open to other suggestions)?

    Any suggestions welcome.

    Thanks.

    It's all personal preference and costs, so if you like Matrix and it helped you then go there.

    But I don't know much about their Math nor English courses, so open to other recommendations.

    i've been to both matrix and dr du for maths

    personally,


    matrix > dr du

    matrix:
    slower pace but still ahead of most schools
    goes into more detail
    good notes
    solid examples
    one-to-one workshops if you need help
    also depends on who your teacher is
    $$$$$$$$$$


    dr du:
    lol
    quite ahead of school
    easy to fall behind
    idk i'm bad at maths so i forgot everything i learnt like a year ago by the time I learnt it at school
    more $$$$ but if you come first you get $$$$$$$
    quality/homework depends on which class you're in (A/B)
    YOU HAVE TO WRITE YOUR OWN NOTES???? like you write down what the tutor writes on the board
    i feel like it's a much more supportive environment (e.g. students are more willing to help each other with hw)

    I don't like matrix or dr du for english though, I feel as if they're both toooooo restricting

    also
    whatever tutor you choose
    in the end it depends on the effort you choose to put in

    ye lol dr du is such that u either love it or u hate it
    has a make you/ break you ambience; for me it was the latter bc i simply couldnt keep up w/ their pace and rigour
    i think i was more concerned abt copying the notes off the board onto my book rather than understanding the content bc it was just so fast and jampacked... tho, i must admit im a slow learner, so naturally it wasnt ideal for me LOL
    but lotsa peeps manage to thrive off of that style and do rlly rlly well bc it sorta enhances their critical thinking n stuff i guess
    !!!!??&,,!&???&!???,,'""&@@&$!?!!!

    Would definitely recommend Evolutionary Tutors for English. They've helped me improve heaps since I started with them earlier this year. Ask for Steph, she's gun They also provide tutoring in Physics, Chem and Bio - so definitely worth looking into if I was you!

    I go to both Matrix and Talent for certain subjects with Matrix being for Physics and 4U Maths and Talent for Chemistry and 3U Math.

    The main difference between the two is their pace and structure of their notes/content.

    Matrix:
    - Much slower than Talent but much more in depth. (Takes around 8 weeks to finish a module for the science subjects)
    - Has weekly quizzes so you can check your progress
    - Notes often go beyond the syllabus
    - Good for Maths (in my opinion) but English wasn't really good (hence why I left English at Matrix)

    Talent:
    - Much much quicker (Takes around 4 weeks to finish a module in the science subjects)
    - Has weekly exam style homework that normally gets marked
    - Notes are sometimes very brief and skim over some syllabus dot points.
    - Has a whole term of just doing exams once all the content has been covered.
    - Good for Chemistry (in my opinion)

    I didn't go to Dr. Du (lol I'm too dumb and I don't go to a selective school) but apparently I've heard that it's a love/hate thing. If you're really good at maths then probably look into it. Also, if you go Talent or Matrix, make sure you get a good teacher.

    If you're doing your HSC in 2019 just make sure you know whether the centre you're going to will cater well for the new syllabus. I think Talent and Matrix are rewriting their notes for the new syllabus right now.

    Good luck!
