Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some questions and answers that might help you to understand the workings of Master Learning Tuition Centre in Campbelltown.
 
Q. Why do you tutor students in small groups?
A.
Learning is maximised when students are calm, confident and concentrating on the task in front of them. A small group setting allows for 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 often fail at school.
 
Q. Why don't you send tutors out to my home?
A.
When students come to our tuition centre they are ready to learn. We have created an environment that promotes maximum learning, free from the many distractions at home. We are also able to supervise our staff and provide them with resources. Our rooms a incredibly well resourced to facilitate the individual learning programs, many more resources than would fit in a teacher's car. This ensures quality control for the parent/guardian's peace of mind.
 
Q. Do you have a special way of helping students learn?
A.
Our methodology and approach to tuition aims to help students improve in the four key areas of motivation, confidence, calmness and concentration. We foster positive attitudes of persistence and patience that help students overcome obstacles and learn from the mistakes that are an inevitable part of learning. We help students to use simple memory techniques to learn quickly and remember easily.
 
Q. Are your tutoring staff qualified and trained?
A.
Our tutoring staff are qualified teachers who have been selected for their positive personalities and passion for helping students. They cover the most important parts of each subject in the most effective way. They have been cleared to work with children by the NSW Police and those not currently teaching in department schools have their clearance included on the government's new Working With Children Check register.
 
Q. What subjects do you offer for each age group?
A.
Preparatory skills required for pre-schoolers are covered in the School Readiness course. Mathematics and English for Years K to 12 (all HSC levels). Science for Years 9 to 10 and Physics, Chemistry and Biology for Years 11 to 12. Reading for primary and remedial secondary.

Q. What happens if my child misses a session?

Q. How do I find out about my child's progress?
