Our
Focus

High School Preparation

High School Preparation, what do we cover.

Transitioning to secondary school is an exciting time, and to make the process easier there are some key areas we recommend all students undertake some preparation in. These areas include but are not limited to:

  1. Writing a basic essay;
  2. Preparing and organising study notes for each subject;
  3. Refresh basic mathematics principles;
  4. The importance of daily reading.

This course is run for students currently in Term 4 of Year 6 or Term 1 of Year 7 and can be completed in place of regular tutoring or as a complementary course.

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.

Participate in one of our group tutorials for encouragement, academic guidance and positive peer interactions.

We’ve seen many excellent students freeze in front of an exam. Our classes include learning techniques to manage anxiety and take back control of exams.

Enquire about our casual tutoring packages and use us as you need us in the lead up to exams and assessment due dates.

Our High School Preparation 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 our high school preparation program 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.
