CURRICULUM

At Brainfood education we ensure that all our tutors are familiar with the objectives and outcomes for each course they teach, adhering to the standards set by the NSW Board of Education and infusing our lessons with activities designed to review and challenge these core standards. Many times, students come to us after simply missing a few days of school and consequently missing a whole topic or skill set.  With such a robust curriculum set for our schools there is often no time to go back and review those missing skills and that’s where tutoring can really make a difference for your child.

HOMEWORK

Our approach to homework is simple. Students already receive plenty of homework from school, therefore unless specifically requested we set revision activities only for home.  Teaching our students quality techniques for organising and revising key formulas, structures and skills will significantly assist with retaining information and translating that knowledge to assessment tasks and exams.

EXAM & ASSIGNMENT PREP

Within tutoring classes we offer assistance with assignments, regular topic testing and exam prep activities to really desensitise the process and allow students to feel comfortable when walking in to an exam.  Many students who seek tutoring have had a poor experience in exams, freezing up and forgetting key information. Our end goal is to build confidence in our students, taking the fear away from the “one bad result means I’m a bad student” mentality and allowing students to prove to themselves that they have the intelligence and ability to succeed in school and life.

Tutoring Methods

  • Deliver structured and tailored tutorials focussed on individual learning, either via small group or private lessons
  • Refine study skills and memorisation techniques
  • Ensure foundations are set by bridging the gaps in schoolwork
  • Focus on resilience, responsibility and being proactive to achieve academic results
  • Opt to work with a tutor of choice and develop a mentor relationship

Annette B

With over 30 years of experience in both play therapy and dyslexia support, Annette is uniquely qualified to get literacy fundamentals for our young students back on track.  Annette comes to us via the UK, where she completed her training through the British Dyslexia Foundation.

What our Tutors will cover

At Brainfood Education we are committed to a flexible learning approach. Through our own personal experiences and feedback from many students, we recognise that not every student learns the same way which can often lead to issues keeping up in regular school classes. We encourage all of our tutors to roll 4 key principles into every class to help our students maximise their learning experience and theirs results.

Cement the basics

Ensuring our students are comfortable with the basics of each subject is a first priority. Students are encouraged to regularly revise and use these basic skills through exercises in class and at home.

Organise & Prepare

We can help students build study plans, help organise exam notes, work through practice exams and many other activities to help get organised and prepared to excel at school. Our tutors are uniquely positioned to provide this advice as they use these methods to achieve excellence with their own results.

Build Confidence

The best thing we can do for our students is build their confidence that they can achieve the results they want. Initial we set short term goals for an exam or assessment and work with students to improve results, demonstrating that good results are attainable with the right motivation. As the tutor student relationship develops, confidence and motivation will continue to build.

Have Fun

Overall, our goal at Brainfood Education is to encourage our students to love learning. Finishing high school is merely a stepping stone in a lifetime journey of education. If we can help our students love the process as well as the results by using our tips, tricks and organisation, we consider our job well done.
