Learning from the Best

To ensure you receive every possible advantage in Year 12, our lectures and tuition programs are prepared and delivered by qualified, experienced Year 12 teachers – including authors of texts, writers and markers of the official examinations, as well as leading experts in their subject fields. However, there’s little merit in choosing highly experienced teachers if they lack the ability to relay the skills and information needed to secure every possible mark in the exams. Therefore, our teachers are not only selected on the basis of their academic merits, but also with careful consideration to their communication skills. The ultimate selection process, however, is student feedback – we only retain those teachers who have surpassed the expectations of students attending our programs.
