Summer School

Get Ahead, Reduce Stress & Improve VCE Marks

Dates: Tuesday 11 January – Friday 21 January 2022
Venue: Interactive, live-streamed online lectures and professionally edited AV recordings that are available on demand

The VCE is a great source of stress for most students, but it doesn’t have to be this way. With the right advice, a smart study plan and advance coverage of course materials, you can:

• greatly reduce stress levels
• cut down on the time spent studying
• achieve higher SAC marks
• improve subject ranks
• gain a significant advantage in the VCE

Working through course materials on your own, however, can be boring, tedious and time-consuming, particularly during the school holidays when motivation levels are low.

That’s why we’ve handpicked some of the best and most dynamic VCE teachers in the state and developed a comprehensive head start program that will enable you to get ahead with minimum effort, and secure the best possible advantage in your VCE.

  • You’ll clarify misconceptions that result in the loss of valuable marks in SACs and exams.
  • You’ll cover the more difficult concepts (and not just the basic principles).
  • You’ll work through a wide variety of SAC and exam-style questions and learn to recognise potential sources of error as well as the tricks and traps that could appear in assessments.
  • You’ll work through the applications that typically appear in the “open book” mathematics exams.
  • You’ll learn the problem-solving skills that are needed to secure the higher SAC and examination marks.
  • You’ll receive valuable advice from leading VCE teachers and VCE exam assessors, giving you an edge in your VCE.
  • The highest quality instruction from experienced VCE teachers and VCE exam markers (not unqualified university students).
  • Between 6 and 14.5 hours of tuition in each enrolled subject.
  • Engaging and interactive teaching that caters for different learning styles.
  • Unlimited access to a recording of the audio-visual presentation for each enrolled lecture until 30 June 2022.
  • Detailed, comprehensive A+ notes that include clear and concise explanations, fully worked examples with step-by-step instructions and
    exam watch-outs – saving you countless hours in study time.
  • A large collection of exam-style questions to further consolidate and extend on taught skills at home.
  • The skills and information you’ll need to perform to a high standard in your SACs.
  • Friendly, engaging, passionate and committed teachers.
  • A level playing field (students taught by VCE exam assessors DO have an advantage over other students).

Students who work through course materials ahead of school will quickly see the benefits when the same topics are covered in class. While other students struggle to understand the new concepts being presented, you’ll be hearing this information for the second time. As a result:

  • Your understanding of examinable materials will greatly improve.
  • You’ll get more from your classes at school, reducing the need for private tutors.
  • Your teachers will be able to address the difficult and/or insightful questions you wouldn’t usually think of until you’re revising for a SAC or exam.
  • You won’t get stuck on questions as frequently, reducing the time you need to spend on homework.
  • You’ll engrain examinable materials into long-term memory, decreasing the time and effort you’ll need to prepare for your SACs and exams.
  • You’ll get higher SAC and examination marks.
  • You’ll improve your subject ranks, improving your moderated SAC marks.
  • You’ll develop greater confidence.
  • You’ll be less likely to procrastinate your studies, reducing stress levels and study loads across the year.
  • You’ll maximise your ATAR result.

So invest some time over summer to get ahead in your studies and start your final school year/s with the tools, skills and information you’ll need to reach your full potential in the VCE.

To help contain the spread of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) and keep Victorians safe, the Chief Health Officer has implemented measures to limit interactions with others by restricting private and public gatherings. These restrictions make it impossible to secure appropriate lecture theatres and deliver Summer School  as a live, in-person event. Furthermore, our programs bring students together from a large number of schools and regions. Under normal circumstances, this presents a fantastic opportunity for students to interact with their state-wide peers, but isn’t a safe proposition at the current time.

So until we receive advice from the Department of Education and the Department of Health and Human Services that it’s safe to gather in large groups, we aren’t able to deliver our lectures in person at The University of Melbourne.

How is Summer School 2022 Being Delivered?

Our Summer School program is being delivered via interactive, live-streamed online lectures and as fully edited AV recordings that are available on demand. As we only use state of the art technology systems and software applications to produce and deliver our lectures, you can be confident that you’ll receive the best possible learning and viewing experience.

We’ll also run numerous activities to keep you stimulated, focused and energised, and very importantly, to regularly reset your concentration span! We’ve got challenges and competitions, polls and quizzes, chats and Q & A sessions, special guest speakers, KAHOOTZ and some very interesting (and top-secret) events, exercises and happenings! Of course, we’ll also include some pedagogically sound activities so you can consolidate what you’ve learned and test your application skills!

Analytical Thinking & Writing – The Key to Success in VCE English

Date: Friday 21 January 2022 (9am to 12:30pm)
Venue: Interactive, Live-Streamed Online Lecture

It’s been repeatedly shown that the students who can skillfully shape their ideas and arguments, use language appropriate to the chosen audience, context, form and purpose, and include sophistication and flair in their writing will receive the higher English marks. This requires mastery of high level analytical thinking and writing skills, skills that are essential in every aspect of VCE English.

Our ‘Analytical Thinking & Writing – The Key to Success in VCE English’  lecture will provide systematic, foolproof strategies that will enable you to develop and hone high level analytical skills so you can think beyond the obvious, and develop well-crafted, articulate analytical arguments. Detailed examples of paragraphs and essays that demonstrate the differences between A and B grade responses will be investigated, and you will leave this lecture with clear strategies that will greatly improve your English essay marks.

Valued at $150, this lecture is FREE and exclusive to any student attending our Unit 1 and/or Unit 3 Summer School – Head Start Lectures.

Vacancies are strictly limited. Don’t miss out!

You will be taught by and receive up to date advice from official exam assessors (the focus of the exams and the marking schemes change on a regular basis). Assessors have access to important information that many teachers aren’t aware of, and which can make a significant difference to your ATAR result.

Knowing how the exam marking system works also gives assessors the ability to guide you through the exam preparation process in the quickest and most effective way. You’ll spend your time revising what really matters, and you can’t get that kind of guidance from recent high school graduates who have no teaching experience, and who don’t have access to the detailed insights our teachers provide.

The world’s leading educational specialists agree that lectures are the fastest and most effective way to revise and consolidate large amounts of information in a short time frame. Not only is it much faster to have an experienced teacher take you through the revision process, using audio and visual delivery processes enables you to work through and remember 5 times more information than if you were to work through the same materials on your own.

TSFX is highly regarded for the quality of our program materials – our students receive the most comprehensive and detailed exam preparation notes available that include every key concept that could be examined, as well as hundreds of examination-style questions that are not commercially available. As an example, students who attended our recent ‘Unit 3 Exam Revision Lectures’ received the following materials, saving them countless hours in exam preparation time:

Chemistry: Over 400 pages of notes and 320 exam-style questions.
Maths Methods: Over 400 pages of notes and 300 exam-style questions.

We constantly invest in our courses and materials to ensure our students receive every possible advantage in their VCE.

Our notes are improved and extended upon each year so that they reflect the annual changes in examination marking and question trends. To help make your exam preparations even easier, we integrate the important concepts and applications from the main textbooks and study resources into our course materials.

Note:

No other program provider has been able to match the quality and depth of materials that are issued to students who attend TSFX programs.

You will gain thorough exposure to the questions and tricks that could appear in the exams. (Students regularly comment that many of the questions they cover during our programs appear in the actual exams!)

You will correct problem areas and to hear information from a different perspective – improving the quality of exam responses and how well information can be applied in unfamiliar applications.

You will dramatically reduce stress levels during the semester and find more time for leisure activities.

You will dramatically reduce stress levels during the semester and find more time for leisure activities.

You will learn how examination papers are marked, how answers must be presented if they are to be awarded full scores, why common responses do not earn marks and how to minimise mistakes in the exams. The majority of class time is spent working through examination-style questions, as well as those questions that will serve to differentiate between the A/A+ and B grade scores.

You will minimise procrastination opportunities and ensure you get the most from your study sessions.

You will greatly improve your confidence levels and maximise Year 11 and 12 marks!
