    North Shore may use teachers, but most of them are NOT GOOD, and the material is shithouse (maths is ok i suppose). good uni students who have experience of the hsc are in many cases better.

    MM College:
    Belmore ( head branch where I did Physics )
    Liverpool ( the one I went to mainly )
    Parramatta

    the year 12 teachers bring their own material for you to work on. i highly reccomend the Chemistry teacher but he's in such high demand the class is full. the Physics teacher was... my year 12 Physics teacher and he was really good.

    Estel, I have to disagree

    I have an English tutor and he does not spoon feed me. All he does is offer me advice on various topics, notes & handouts, discussions etc. I do most of the work myself but he keeps me on track....and I have a very good rank for Eng Avd, Ext1 and Ext 2 (1, 1 and 1).

    I heard tomatec is really good, though the people i know that went there didnt do well in the end.

    Prior is way to expensive, if you can get a hand on their notes, that would be enough already!

    Has anyone heard of TIPS at Yagoona? Half of my friends went there. They all did super well-apart from the fact that they had to do a test to get into to the coaching college and they were mostly selctive school students....

    For maths, I went to Terry Lee (Author of Advanced mathematics, 4unit) I thought he was a terrific tutor and he improved me by 10 marks in the HSC for ME1. I was very happy with that.

    That's exactly what an english tutor has to do.. too many ppl reckon their eng tutor will just spoonfeed them with a nice essay to copy for the essay. and they try this and get wasted by the hsc examiners for the main reason that they won't be asnwering this year's question, but last year's (the one they prepared beforehand). In fact, your tutor should help you consider different persepctives and of cousre to fine tune your essays.

    Btw zahid, you're a guy who likes SRK? how does that work :S

    I do 4... and I can't really defend my theory yet until I put it into action.
    I've heard of too many success stories with memorising essays and hate English too much to bother.
    No real point in me arguing before I get my English marks...

    I've managed to get by without memorising essays so far. It's a bullshit subject, though.

    it's only a bullshit subject if you dont understand it properly (and yes, for too long i too thought it was a bullshit subejct). and memorising essays is really not advisable, they'll know in the hsc exam if youre just repeating previous exemplars.

    Terry

    For maths, I went to Terry Lee (Author of Advanced mathematics, 4unit) I thought he was a terrific tutor and he improved me by 10 marks in the HSC for ME1. I was very happy with that.
    is this the terry lee that drives a white toyota camry and is vietnamese. does he visit your home? if so, then i've had him before. he is pretty good. a bit strict though
