A strong foundation of essential skills provides the basis for academic success.
We know that students invest significant time and effort in their studies, but all too often many struggle to obtain the results that reflect their commitment and potential. We believe that given the right teaching, guidance and support, EVERY student has the ability to excel in their studies.
Academic Task Force Skills Development Program has been specifically designed to equip students with the necessary skills for ongoing academic success. It includes a number of targeted courses that students can choose from, depending on which subject they need to improve in.
Our specialist teachers know how to engage students with targeted teaching and class interaction that promotes learning development.
This program teaches skills that are useful for every student, not only within a specific term or school year, but throughout their school life.
Our popular Learning Skills class will teach your child how to manage their time effectively for completing their work as well as teaching them strategies for improving reading, learning and memory to achieve success.
Our Essay Writing class will teach your child how to write great essays using a simple plan they can adapt to any subject.
Students will improve skills in key areas of their studies, and be able to face challenges with confidence so that realising their potential will become so much easier.
