High school can be a tough time for students, with an increasing workload heading toward the HSC. Luckily, you don’t have to do it all on your own. A private English tutor can be extremely beneficial for your homework, assignments and HSC final exams. Working one-on-one with an experienced professional can maximise your potential and increase your ability to achieve a band 6.

How working with a private English tutor can help you

  • Extra attention – one-on-one

A little extra attention can go a long way. One-on-one teaching is tailored to meet a student’s needs and abilities, so they are able to learn their strengths and weaknesses through guided sessions with in-depth and on the spot feedback. Communication can be more effective as students feel more confident speaking up and asking questions to a trusted individual rather than a room full of peers. Most students need a little extra help outside of class, even the top students. There is always room for improvement and a private English tutor can help you along the way to achieve your academic goals and receive a band 6 in the HSC.

  • Strengthen the foundations

Working with a private English tutor can help you strengthen the important foundations needed for a successful essay and creative writing piece. So many things are crammed into each class, so students can learn everything before the exam time comes, that the majority of the time, the foundations are lost along the way. Things like grammar, punctuation, sentence structure and literary techniques may not have a strong focus in class but are the pinnacle of success for a band 6 worthy piece of writing.

  • Confidence / get ahead with practice

Working one-on-one with a private English tutor can significantly increase a student’s confidence, as they are given the opportunity to catch up on things they may have missed or did not understand and allows them to get ahead with practice. Achieving a band 6 is not as far out of reach as it may seem. With a reliable and experienced tutor, you can better your results and increase your ability to write top scoring essays, precise short answer questions and incredibly creative short stories.

  • Get used to exam style questions and formal test settings

Tutors provide a monitored study session, focusing on productivity and time management in each get-together, so students are given the opportunity to get used to exam style questions and formal test settings. Studying on your own or with a friend can have its distractions and it’s easy to get side tracked if someone isn’t watching over – i.e. a teacher or tutor. Tutors can conduct practice exams with students tailored to their syllabus.

  • Improved attitude toward learning

When a child is confident in their abilities, they are able to achieve anything. Doubt can have a severe impact on a student’s motivation to learn. But with a little help from a private English tutor, nothing is impossible, not even that band 6 for even the most struggling of students. Sometimes it just takes a little more time and further in-depth explaining in a comfortable setting and communication style to change a student’s attitude toward a subject.


Our qualified English tutors provide each student with an individually tailored program designed to complement the student’s particular syllabus or curriculum, with scope for extension or remedial work as required. They will work with classroom assignments and plan for upcoming tests, so that students are well prepared for English throughout the school year.
