English Tutoring

The old adage “practice makes perfect” can really hold true for your child and his or her education.

The more practice and exposure your child has with concepts being taught in school, the more success he or she is likely to experience. For many parents, knowing how to help their children may be frustrating because the resources may not be readily available.

As a parent it is also difficult to know where to focus your efforts so that the extra practice your child receives at home supports what he or she is learning in school.

Our english books have been written to give practice with reading and answering questions to help students fully comprehend what is read. Our books are intended to help students develop successful strategies for reading comprehension. The students accomplish this by reading passages and articles and then answering a variety of questions using a specific strategy which are taught in the class by our expert teacher’s in the class.

At pre uni college, we help your child to master essential primary school writing skills.

There will be focus on two text types in a term. We cover various text types (narratives, persuasive, explanation, discussion, procedure, report, recount,and description ) in a year. Your child will learn the five steps of the writing process including prewriting, drafting, revising, editing and publishing.

Our Local Australian trained teacher talks aloud the thought processes as a writer. They have complete control over the writing and make explicit the structure, language features, spelling and punctuation of the text types. Students contribute their ideas and thoughts for the teacher to select the most appropriate. Each student’s writing will be marked carefully, adhering to strict guidelines in accordance with the NSW curriculum.

Book Assessment

We aim to:

  • Give each child the skills to write for a variety of audiences, with confident and accuracy within a range of contexts.
  • Ensure there is a clear progression in the teaching of writing which includes familiarisation of text types, structural and language features and by independent supported compositions.
  • Provide meaningful contexts for writing activities across the curriculum.

Thinking Skills

Thinking Skills develops a set of transferable skills, including.

  • Critical thinking
  • Reasoning
  • Problem-Solving

That students can apply across a wide range of subjects and complex real-world issues.

The syllabus enables students to develop their ability to analyse unfamiliar problems, devise problem solving strategies, and evaluate the diverse ways a problem may be solved. During a Thinking Skills course, students learn to put their personal views aside in favour of examining and evaluating the evidence. Students learn how to make informed and reasoned decisions and construct evidence-based arguments.

These independent thinking skills build confidence and equip students with a toolkit for tackling complex and unfamiliar subjects, essential for successful progression to higher education or into professional employment.
