Our Focus

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.

For our primary students, with regular tutoring and revision activities we don’t expect a significant need for exam preparation.  Our tutors have a range of exam resources to access and can work with students on a regular basis to desensitise the exam process and identify areas of weakness.  For NAPLAN years, preparation and testing is included in regular tutoring classes.

For assignment preparation, if a student needs assistance they are encouraged to ask for help or bring in drafts for review, however given the nature of assignments in the primary school curriculum this is not overly necessary.

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 english and mathematics skills will significantly assist with retaining key information and transitioning to high school.

Tutoring to suit your child and budget

Does this sound familiar?

Sometimes it’s as simple as connecting the right tutor or teacher with a student and everything starts to make sense. Other times we understand the need for professional intervention. Every student is unique and we like to think we can come up with a unique solution to suit your needs.

Our Primary School Tutoring programs can help

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.

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.

The best thing we can do for our students is build their confidence that they can achieve the results they want. Initially 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.

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.

Success in life, Not just School

Whatever your motivation for exploring Primary School tutoring it can help your child keep up, catch up or get ahead in class. School is a lot more competitive nowadays and more often than not an extra bit of tutoring will help. If we don’t feel your child will benefit from tutoring or feel alternate avenues should be explored we will be upfront and tell you.

The lessons we learn at school have long term effects. Organisation, critical thinking, creative flair, time management and the discipline to finish what we start, are key to success in tertiary study and a future career.  By teaching these concepts at an early age, along with memory techniques and tools to manage stress and anxiety, we are setting our children up to achieve the best they can. School is not the end of learning, and if we get the foundations right for our students we can bring back the love of learning, and inspire our next generation of leaders.
