    private - more attention to yourself and more opportunity to work on your weaknesses

    I think it's better to take a private tutor

    Go private for english, and small group for maths (max 3). Go to a centre for phys/chem/bio.

    Private is more expensive, and you don't get any information on who you're getting. They're also pretty immoral: I was once asked to tutor a subject that I had no knowledge of... They rely on the fact that it is hard to find students and peoples' prejudices towards agencies.

    Private for English, small groups for everything else. Centres work for maths.

    Has anyone received results (in terms of improvement) as a result from English tutoring? If so, private or attending a coaching college? I'm considering getting an English tutor after a disappointing advanced mark.

    Look, honestly for private tutoring, you get what you pay for in most subject areas. For english, I highly recommend private tutoring. I had the most amazing english tutor; not only was she the best teacher, but she was so so dedicated to helping me succeed - took the time to mark as many essays etc in a very short period of time. I really doubt you get that kind of dedication + quality with centre based tutoring because they have to cater for the whole group. My tutor helped me to improve exponentially. Because of her, I ended up coming 4th in the year (which I never thought I could do) and getting 95 in the HSC. In year 11, I think I came around 10th.

    As for maths, I think centre based coaching would be best. I had a private tutor for maths as well and it wasn't worth the money because for maths there is theory involved, but the key to succeeding is practice, which needs to be done alone. So if I could do things again, I'd do centre based because it would be cheaper and you could still get the necessary help + resources.

    Re: Private coaching vs Centre based coaching?

    Private coaching really can't be beaten, since the focus is only on you & your opportunities to improve - and it can be done at your own pace. But different subjects work differently with coaching. For English or Law, you might only need a particular number of lessons to get you at the right level & then refine your written responses for the exams. For maths & science, repeated practice is absolutely needed to demonstrate your competency in solving quantitative problems.

    Saying that, it's a little late in the game for private coaching. You might be better off going to a HSC program in the first week of the holidays. It won't beat private coaching done over a year, but HSC programs will help you make a huge jump in a really short time.

    Private is best for me, I socialise too much at group tutoring centres

    Re: Private coaching vs Centre based coaching?

    One to one tutoring would be the most beneficial. I used www.justmathstutoring.com.au to find a tutor. Not much more than a group tutor.
    Good luck !

    Re: Private coaching vs Centre based coaching?

    I personally found group coaching to be useful at younger years as it also allows you to socialise, make a study group/share notes, etc... but towards HSC when you need that one on one tutoring to help ensure you are getting stuff done right, and don't feel any pressure to impress peers/etc, it's that much easier to learn.

    Both have there pros and cons, though it depends on what you are comfortable in. According to that you can opt for anyone...

    Re: Private coaching vs Centre based coaching?

    i think small classrooms are the best since you get to bounce ideas off the other students. So sometimes I think that I understand the concept but then the other students will ask questions that I never thought of and it helps me learn even more.

    I personally went to Infinite Knowledge which is a tutoring centre with small classes of around 4 students. So it's small enough to be considered "private" but it also has the benefit of really great discussions where we all get involved and all learn, not to mention that we all become good friends
