THE PRIOR SEVEN STEP SYSTEM TO SUCCESS
The HSC can be a very stressful experience. But it doesn’t have to be that way! We’ll support you every step of the way, to make your journey more productive, enjoyable and successful.
STEP 1: STRUCTURED CLASSES
No knowledge assumed!
PRIOR classes are a lively blend of theory and discussion, worked examples and practice questions. Starting from the foundations of Mathematics, you’ll be taken through the entire course in the most logical order. All PRIOR materials are based upon the current NSW syllabuses.
Mathematics is best learned by a step-by-step approach. Every aspect of the work will be explained carefully to you, with the emphasis on understanding the mathematical concepts and not merely how to obtain the answer. You’ll find that things you thought were difficult become simple when broken down into small, easily digestible portions.
Your participation is valued
At all times, the emphasis in classes is on active involvement in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. After all, learning is a two-way communication process. So you’ll be involved in class discussions where your questions will be listened to and answered in a way that makes sense to you. It’s important that your problems are cleared up as you go along, because mathematics is like a jigsaw puzzle… the pieces fit together and are all important! In PRIOR classes, not only will you gain a strong understanding of the mathematical concepts, you’ll also have fun along the way!
STEP 2: EXCLUSIVE PRIOR HOMEWORK
To reinforce what you’ve learned in the class, you’ll receive exclusive PRIOR homework. Each homework starts with easy questions, to build your confidence. They then gradually progress to the more challenging types of questions you’re likely to see in your school assessments and major exams.
And to really get ahead…
Once you’ve mastered the basics, you can extend yourself by getting your teeth stuck into our challenging Distinction Questions. So those elusive top marks will be within your reach!
STEP 3: INSTANT MARKING
To give you constructive feedback on your progress, PRIOR tutors will mark and return your homework, with helpful hints and comments… on the day you submit it! So you’ll immediately know how you’re progressing.
STEP 4: WORKSHOPS
Learning from your mistakes
In Workshops, PRIOR tutors will help you correct the errors on your PRIOR homework, so you can learn from your mistakes. You are also welcome to get help with your school work and prepare for any upcoming assessments. Workshops are available to you seven days a week and are a great opportunity to get on top of your problems, before they get on top of you!
STEP 5: EXAMS UNDER EXAM CONDITIONS
Learning to perform under pressure
Throughout the year, you’ll do exclusive PRIOR exams, under exam conditions. These will help you learn to manage your time efficiently, improve your accuracy and remain calm under pressure!
In fact, by doing the full series of PRIOR practice exams, you will systematically revise your entire mathematics course. Then, after each exam, you’ll discover how to solve the questions that stumped you, at an Exam Review Class and your Workshops. By regularly doing PRIOR exams under exam conditions, you’ll be confidently prepared for you school maths assessments and the HSC. Confidence is a key factor for success!
STEP 6: ONE-ON-ONE TUTORIALS
Further individual tuition
When you’d like individual tuition on any topic, you can book into a One-On-One Tutorial with a PRIOR tutor. One-On-One Tutorials are optional and are charged at an hourly rate.
STEP 7: MENTORING
Building confidence in yourself
Sometimes the road to success can be a rocky one. If you are experiencing difficulties along the way, we will give you individual mentoring to help you get over the hurdles. Achieving in your studies is as much about believing in yourself as mastering the academic content. We’ll help you gain the inner experience of feeling successful, valuable and worthwhile.
Please let us know if you need guidance with time management, stress management, learning skills or exam skills. When we notice that a student needs additional support and mentoring, we contact their parents to discuss the best way to proceed. There’s no doubt that commitment, focus, self-belief and persistence are essential elements to success in the HSC… and beyond!
