    High Hopes Tutoring is a really good tutoring college. All their tutors have finished the HSC recently and scored Band 6 in the subject they coach so they can really relate to how HSC candidates learn. They have mostly honour roll students coaching so they really understand how to succeed in the HSC. Most of their tutors are also completing tertiary studies in the subjects they are coaching, so they obviously have an interest in the subject.

    Anyway their number is 0406166865 if any one is interested...

    Only if you attend the "weekly" classes and from what I heard it's like twice a week. I'm only enrolled in the holiday course, hence why and plus it takes an hour by train to get there from where I live. That is why I am not prepared to spend 4 hours on public transport plus like 3 hours on tutoring per week. I do a separate one during school terms which is much closer.

    I went to prior for both math ext 1 and chem- yes i admit to being excessively lazy; (I guess it forces people to work?) because of the ever present threat of being kicked out with no refund, but the notes they give you really are great.
    The tutors, I found, (uni students), were a lot easier to relate to than actual teachers? (of course.. that's just my pov), because they'd been through the same thing not too long ago... it all helps.
    You didn't -have- to go twice a week btw. It just depended on how your lesson times and workshop times were booked. The workshop system is good though- makes you work through everything you got wrong. Something I don't think I would've done on my own accord.
    Prior was also the most time consuming out of all the tutoring places I'd been to >.< which included north shore, pre uni and kumon over the years.

    well the english course kinda helped me coz we're not really given guidance at school on how write better responses and stuff. however some weeks it gets too basic, like learning metaphors or similies.... if a yr 12 dont know that, then they should be concerned..

    prior is okay after a while... i got used to it

    yeah i go there only for english. it's really good if you want to be VERY familiar with techniques (eg. juxtaposition), but it's not that good for refine essay techniques. generally, they just provide you with 'Tipps' on how to assessments, exams, speeches etc and also good additional material for journeys (atm, but theyll dig into the modules soon)

    i guess i can't complain, 15bux an hr

I have english with mr grumley all my friends have mr bruce but that's because i've gone stupid the past few years and i'm not in the top class well not even in the 2nd top anymore (i'm trying real hard now) heard mr bruce is really good.

    hey,

    is tipps that great is it? I've heard a lot about them but havent actually been. Maybe I will give it a try. Is it in house or a school? Do they have real teachers or just uni students. I think real teachers will know the syllabus better.

    also, so you know whether they do primary school for my brother?

    Its called proffesional tutoring centre and its at Hurstville. They tutor maths and English.
    never heard of them. Where's that near to/what street?

    I teach at James An too, I tutor English. It does help, I teach the kiddies (the ones I teach there are mostly primary school) how to write essays and how to think. There's a lot that can be taught when tutoring English. It's a lot harder to tutor than maths, you need to use your imagination sometimes!

    w00t! i've "graduated" from tipps =)

    But to be honest the english tutor was crap simply because he had too many students to deal with esp. when his teaching most texts from the modules. He knows what his talking about tho..

    Maths @ tipps is the best (and i've been to many tutors). the guy who teaches is not a qualified teacher, but his teaching for longer than most at my school. the classes are quite crowded (i fink about 30) but he teaches with great flair so maths is bearable.

    tipps maths and english is taught in a house (possibly in a large building in the future)

    Terry Lee is the tops for 4u =)
    Highly recommended. He's also avaliable at Pre-Uni Strathfield, but unless you have a scholarship there, you should go to his bankstown classes

    I'm sure there are many here who would be able to tutor better and cheaper (?) than new college. Hell I'd put myself foward if there wasn't the sea of 99.95 and 100 people offering tutoring here.

    english essay

    Heys
    Im working on an English essay .. and I want some suggestions for the introduction. And how should I set out the essay and im still unsure about the linking.
    Question: Journeys transform the individual and his or her knowledge of the world.
    Assess this statement in the light of your understanding of journeys from the texts you have studied.

    In your answer make close reference to your set text, one text from the Board of Studies Booklet, Journeys and a text of your own choosing.

    For the set text: Peter Skrzynecki's poetry
    BOS booklet Journeys: wind in the williows
    Text of own choosing: movie Ice Age
