Private Home Tutored Student Levels
The first few years of a child’s education plays a vital role in their cognitive development. Solid knowledge of Numeracy and Literacy is needed so that further issues do not arise later in High School.
Tutors help with additional support, or set challenges that maintain motivation and interest in learning, which helps with confidence building and results.
Years 7 to 10
Moving from Primary to High School is a transition that can be frightening. Methods of teaching are different. Assignments, Essays, and Assessments are expected all through the year for each Subject.
Parents may be time poor and not up to date with the current syllabus and all families go through ‘Stress’ at these times.
Years 11 and 12
As from Year 11 students need to put in the hard work with their Assignments, regular Assessments throughout the year up to the Trials and then the exam itself.
The College years add pressure which is felt by students and families alike.
Adults undertaking various University Degrees may need additional assistance in their chosen subject.
- English as a Second Language (ESL).
- IELTS assistance with exam preparation.
NAPLAN is short for the ‘National Assessment Program Literacy and Numeracy’.
This Assessment happens in Year 3, 5, 7 and 9 at school, usually in the month of May. There is no reason to panic about Naplan testing.
The skills of NAPLAN examinations include:
- Language (spelling, grammar and punctuation)
These basic skills are considered the learning building blocks for all subjects. Without the foundation of comprehension skills it’s difficult for students and adults alike to understand any written text. Without the necessary numeracy skills it will pose problems in all areas of everyday life. Success in all areas of life depend on these basic skills. Naplan monitors how well kids are developing and can then give parents the additional knowledge to see if a child needs extra support to get it right!
