Students - get SMART and set some goals for the rest of 2013 and the new school yearAre you happy with your performance at school this year? Would you like to do better? Wishing will not make it happen – you need to set some goals.
Can you tell the difference between a wish and a goal? A goal is a result you desire, toward which you direct an effort. A wish is made by a person who also desires a result, but who really doesn’t believe that anything they do will help them achieve the result. Download the complete article.
Q. Why do you tutor students in small groups, and how can an hour or two of tuition each week possibly achieve the results we are seeking?A. Learning is maximised when students are motivated, confident, calm and concentrating on the task in front of them. Our small group setting allows for the development of these traits and the most effective learning. The skills and confidence students develop in the small class lead to independent learning and the willingness to ask questions and get full value from classes at school. By contrast, one-on-one tutoring can be a quite intense situation. Sometimes students become dependent on their tutor, and are not able to perform well in the school and exam setting. If a child only performs well in a one-on-one setting, they will fail at school. Download our Learning Boost Article.
Pre-Kinder Literacy ProgramThis twenty-week program starts in June each year and is for children starting school the following year. The skills of phonemic awareness (sounds) and visual discrimination (letters and words) are learnt in a fun and supportive atmosphere. Children learn to read two-letter and three-letter words. The program includes writing, drawing and counting. Parents are very involved in this enjoyable program and are invited to attend the sixty-minute session each week with their children. There are also take-home activities that make it easy for parents to help their children. Read more about the Pre-Kinder Literacy Program ...
Congratulations to our many students who sat the Test in March this year. We are very proud of your efforts to reach the highest level of which you are capable. Many students gained a place at Gosford High for 2014 and several gained scholarships to non-government schools. Over one thousand students apply for the 180 positions at Gosford High School each year. We prepare many students in our program that covers mathematics, reading comprehension, written expression, general ability and exam techniques. The 45-week program starts at the beginning of Year 5. Year 5 students are welcome to enrol at any time, however the program is not individualised for those starting later in the year. There is a lot of material to cover, so it is not realistic to expect success when starting preparations later in the year. For the same reason, we do not enrol Year 6 students into this program.

"We wish we had gone to you sooner. We had tutors coming to our house and tried other education centres, but we wasted time and money. You achieved more with our daughter than all the others combined because you helped her to believe in herself." Read more testimonials from parents and students...
