    Truongs Maths Tutoring, any comments?

    I have read many of your contributions, not just to this thread. You make negative comments about other coaching centres as well and you write as if you are an expert. Do you know what it means by "jack of all trades?" My advice, stick to one and be an expert, maybe just IT? If you prefer not to...

    Mr 100% coaching college

    Before it starts I want to say that I am sick and tired of JR-bashing, why don't you just type it into the search function and join one of those threads? When I was at ruse I found the teachers were extremely dedicated to our education. The only exceptions were new teachers, recently hired...

    Truongs Maths Tutoring, any comments?

    Yes, he is very nice. And you are obviously not too good at judging people. For that, I will disregard your petty assault. And my next suggestion is actually a very strong piece of advice for you to make sure next time, you're properly informed about the topic before deciding to attack it...

    Truongs Maths Tutoring, any comments?

    Re: Fairfield Troung's recommendation - English That's exactly sir!!!!! Fun, effective teaching! But the key thing most people miss about his tutoring is his emphasis on the traditional ways. I understand what you mean about being uncomfortable with bowing, especially since it is such an old...

    Truongs Maths Tutoring, any comments?

    Re: Fairfield Troung's recommendation - English It's not just Ms Diab that's really good - he tries to get the best teachers he can to work there - Mayers is also soooo nice and funny, although I think she teaches the junior classes? So while Diab is fantastic for HSC (teaching by rubric suits...

    Tutoring is forced homework?

    You should look at the HSC now. The only subjects I completed that involved creative learning (I felt) were history and extension history. The others (math, chem, eng) were rote, and also happen to be some of the better scaling subjects. In recent years students have commented after each HSC how...

    Truongs Maths Tutoring, any comments?

    Re: Truong's tutoring, any comments? Oasfree you seem to have some sort of personal vendetta against him? (Or tutors overall?) I strongly disagree with almost everything you have said about him - this is a man that has helped so many people so much it's unbelievable - you're missing out on...

    Structure of essay

    they can't realli penalise you for having paragraphs that are too long, although all paragraphs seem lengthy in hsc because of the booklets. sub paragraphs mite disrupt your argument, because typically a new paragraph means a totally new idea or text. there wouldnt be a problem if it was a text...

    What you NEED to use for the AOS essay.

    however you don't want to just know the second one too briefly what if your first text doesnt match the question, then you mite want to rely on the second. i don't think there's ever been a case when they specified a poem for the poetry ppl, has there? then they'll have to specify a chapter...
