  • What are the tuition fees?
    Fees for school level tutorial workshops are $75 / 1.5 hours. Fees for one-to-one tutorials are $75 / 45 min. The tutorial fees are payable at the end of 4 lessons.
  • When are the tutorials held?
    The tutorial workshops run weekdays 4 pm or 6 pm and Saturdays 1 pm or 3 pm. Individual tutorials are available between the hours 11 am - 3.30 pm weekdays.
  • Where are the tutorials conducted?
    Tutorials are held at the Accelerated Learning Tutoring Centre in Nedlands, opposite the Broadway Fair Shopping Centre.
  • How long are the tutoring sessions?
    The small group tutorials are 90 minutes and the one-to-one tutorials are 45 min.
  • What subjects do you offer tutoring in?
    Accelerated Learning offers personalised tuition in the following subjects: Primary School Mathematics, science and English. High School Lower secondary maths, science & English Mathematics Applications, Mathematics Methods & Mathematics Specialist Physics Chemistry University Maths Physics Chemistry GAMSAT (medical entry)
  • What is the student-tutor ratio in group tutorials?
    Our small group tutorials consist of 2-4 pupils, typically there are 2 to 3 students. The group tutorials are kept small so as to maximise the time the tutor can provide to each student while allowing students time to attempt questions themselves under the tutor's guidance.
  • How do I pay for tuition fees?
    After four tutorials an invoice is emailed to parents and includes details of fees and payment methods. These include paying by cash or card at the tuition centre, paying over the phone with a credit card, direct deposit or PayID.
  • Do you assign homework?
    Primary School Modern Australian primary schools often do not assign enough maths homework to give the necessary practice and problem solving that is vital for mastering mathematics. At the end of tutorials we will usually give younger students additional study material to take home with them to practice. Lower Secondary Depending on their schools, students in lower high school may not be assigned enough homework to help them learn their school mathematics and science lessons adequately. In these cases we're happy to provide additional homework. Students might also require additional practice questions for tests and exams which can be provided. Upper Secondary Typically, year 11 and 12 students will be given enough homework material with which to learn their subjects but we are happy to provide additional practice questions for tests and exams.
  • What teaching resources and methods do you use?
    Resource Centre The tutoring centre has a library of textbooks, notes, sample exam papers, worked solutions from textbooks, etc. that are utilised in tutorials. Teaching Methods Tutorial lessons are tailored to meet individual student's needs and consists of detailed explanations of key concepts, going through examples of typical questions on a line by line basis and having students attempt a wide variety of questions and problems from a variety of sources; in particular applying problem solving to more challenging questions. Views on Technology in Learning Use of technology in tutorials is deliberately kept to a minimum as to facilitate better kinetic learning. Research has shown that handwriting notes leads to better memory retention and understanding than taking notes via keyboard. For younger students in particular, use of a calculator is kept to a minimum to improve student's arithmetic abilities which improves their intuition for numbers and numerical processes. This provides firmer basis for arithmetic which will thus provide a solid foundation for the learning of higher mathematics.
  • How do I enrol my child in your tuition program?
    Please complete an online enrolment form on the enrolment page. If you need to discuss any details first please contact the tutor.
  • Do I need to sign a contract?
    Students do not need to sign up for a term or minimum number of tutorials, so there is no contract. Parents/students must agree, however, to paying for no-show appointments or paying late cancellation fees. Students cancelling lessons on the scheduled tutorial day will be charged a late cancellation fee of $15.
  • Do you offer online tuition?
    Online tuition is available during the following times: M - F 11 AM - 3:30 PM Online tuition is one-to-one only.
  • Is a student charged a lesson fee if they cannot attend an appointment?
    We understand that sometimes circumstances may require you to cancel a scheduled tutorial. If you inform us at least a day in advance of the lesson cancellation, we will apply a replacement tutorial credit to your student's account. This credit can be used for a makeup tutorial on a different day than the usual scheduled tutorial time or during the next school holidays. However, for tutorials cancelled on the day of the scheduled session, a $15 late cancellation fee will be applied. We value our students' commitments and the time of our tutor, so this fee helps us maintain a well-organised schedule. In case a student needs to cancel on the day due to reasons like illness or unforeseen circumstances, they can reschedule a replacement tutorial later in the week if they wish. We strive to be understanding and flexible when such situations arise. If you have any questions or need to reschedule a tutorial, please don't hesitate to contact us.
  • Do you go to student's homes?
    No, tuition is only available at the tutoring centre in Nedlands. The centre has a library of educational resources which are incorporated into lessons. The availability of these resources for the tutor and student improves the breadth and depth of the lesson in imparting knowledge while providing meaningful and challenging questions and problems to facilitate more in-depth learning and practice for tests and exams.
  • Is there a minimum number of tutorials that need to be booked?
    There is no minimum number of tutorials that need to be booked. However, learning is an ongoing process and is not typically an immediate process. For best results tuition should be over a period of time.
  • Is the tutor experienced?
    The tutor has more than 25 years experience in mathematics and science education and is fully familiar with the school curriculum including ATAR.
  • How do you assess a student's progress.
    We ask for parents and students to update us with results from school tests, exam and reports. More generally however, assessment of progress is an ongoing process with attention given to a student's ability to answer questions and problems in a clear, concise manner that shows understanding.
  • What is your cancellation policy?
    Students will be assumed to continue with weekly tutorials during term unless we here otherwise. As a courtesy and to avoid a missed appointment fee, we request students no longer requiring tuition to inform us promptly.
  • What is the tutor's qualification?
    Our tutor has degrees in mathematics & physics and has studied chemistry at a tertiary level. He has more than 25 years experience as a professional tutor, providing tuition at all levels of maths, physics, chemistry, science and English.
  • How can I communicate with the tutor regarding my child's progress?
    Our tutor welcomes email or phone enquiries to discuss their child's progress in their particular tutorial subject. Parents may also wish to discuss their child's progress at the office before or after lessons.
