Our feedback is research-based
Feedback is the most powerful influencer of improvement in student outcomes.
We want to do it right so we've used research-based feedback models to guide our feedback.
Our feedback is timely, clear and focused on areas you can improve. Our feedback is detailed and uses your mistakes to correct any misunderstandings about the rubric, text and grammar. Our feedback is specific to the marking criteria and we help you to establish your next goals. Most importantly our feedback encourages self-reflection.

Our markers are highly experienced
Your work is marked by an experienced examination marker who has read hundreds of extended responses written by students from different schools. This means that the marker knows your text and can give you feedback on your content knowledge as well as your writing style. Our marking standards are also based on HSC marking standards.
What our students say
"Angela has been an amazing English tutor for my preparation for the HSC in Year 12. Although I started the tutoring service half-way into Year 12, I made a significant progress in English and all tutoring sessions were highly productive and beneficial. Alongside her friendly manner and professional approach, Angela had excellent communication skills and time management to effectually deliver information or feedback and make the most out of all lessons. Most of all, Angela was very efficient in targeting my specific needs, as she immediately took notice of my weaknesses and provided assistance in improving on areas that I found most difficult. In terms of the help and support I received, she examined all of my writings for both positive and constructive feedback, whilst providing extra materials to enhance the quality of my writing and expand my knowledge. Overall, Angela played a major role in significantly raising my English marks and rank, and my confidence in English also increased dramatically. As I reflect on Angela’s guidance and immense contribution to my improvement in English, I really wish that I had contacted her a lot earlier. I highly appreciate Angela’s hard work and dedication she put into each and every tutoring session, and I would love to recommend her tutoring service to anyone who wishes to receive an effective and personalised guidance to improve their English skills."
Olivia, Hornsby Girls High School
"I have been learning with Angela since the start of Year 11 and she has helped me really improve my English skills. She could accurately pinpoint my weaknesses and these were improved throughout the two years. She also helped with short answer responses and essay writing which are important skills for the HSC."
