Year 11 and 12 Chemistry can be intimidating. Students need to learn heaps of content, be able to recognize reactions and analyse chemical systems. The number of concepts students need to master is overwhelming, and the workload only adds up as they move up the curriculum. If your child doesn't hit the ground running, if they don't develop adequate study habits it's easy to get swept away by the sheer number of demands.

If your child doesn't hit the ground running, if they don't develop adequate study habits it's easy to get swept away by the sheer number of demands.
Tutors we work with know that. They've been there. Being approached by a mentor rather than a teacher makes it easier for students to develop an appreciation for chemistry. That's what it comes down to - someone making sure your child doesn't give up.
For some students it's just passing a test, for others it's getting through HSC with flying colours, maybe even preparing for a career in STEM. Whatever the goal, we are there to support your child through it all.
So what's the next step?
Give us a call and we will organise a chemistry tutor in Blair Athol to come to your home for one-on-one tutoring, at a time that works for you and your child.
We allocate local Blair Athol chemistry tutors so scheduling is never an issue. Changed your mind or need to postpone the lesson? No worries, there are no cancellation costs.
On top of that, the first lesson is a trial so if you don't like the tutor we'll find someone else who is better suited.
Have a question? We are happy to help.
Give us a call.

The proof is always in the action, to get an idea of how tutoring works in practice check out some feedback from tutors. Typically tutors focus on strategies needed to make progress, what's going well and what needs improvement. Of course, every tutor has their own unique style that is tailored to your child's specific needs.
During the past month, our sessions have seen us implementing back checking working in problems to double check what she has done. We have emphasis on having confidence in what your brain is telling you to do. Formatting how we solve problems is also another thing we have gone about where we want to ideally work through the problem step by step. We will continue working on this.
20/3/18- high standard of work habits, completes all class work and homework, 100% effort put into subject (class workbook & Revision Notes). Attitude is positive, puts in more hours towards this subject than other subjects. 27/3/18- up to date in classwork. Is putting the time in Maths. Will work on exam approach and techniques.
In Heidi's case I think her biggest weakness is her confidence. We are working on learning the fundamentals including her tables, fractions and other key concepts, however she learns these rapidly, so it is her confidence which needs be built in order continue to see significant improvement in her mathematics.
So far so good. Scott has been great. He is exceptionally patient and really flexible at fitting in with our timetable.
. Ruby enjoyed the session and is very happy with Vibha, so we're off to a good start.
Chloe has had 2 sessions and is starting to find Maths easier already. She has tests coming up and Rosario is focusing on this. We've found Rosario to be patient when explaining the different processes to Chloe. She is also warm and friendly with her and this is good for Chloe who also has anxiety issues.
