Just as the proof of the pudding is in the tasting, so too are the results that my daughter gets from tests and assignments! So far however, the sessions have given her a sense of confidence now that she better understands the concepts and has a framework around which she can do the work. Well done tutors for that alone 🙂

I highly recommend Emma Horgan as an English tutor. My daughter has been working with her for 4months and we have seen a tremendous improvement in her writing skills. Emma is patient, kind, and always makes learning fun. She takes the time to understand my daughter's strengths and weaknesses and tailors her lessons accordingly. Additionally, she provides detailed feedback after each session which helps my daughter to identify areas where she needs to improve. Overall, we are very pleased with our experience and would recommend Emma to anyone looking for an excellent English tutor.

Amit is my son’s math tutor and he is doing magic!! My son is very happy with the way Amit explains things and makes math easy and fun! Amit not only assigns him homework on a regular basis, but is always there when he has any questions or conecpts that he's having difficulties with. Amit is a very caring tutor and we will be continuing classes with him as my son has seen great progress after being tutored by him. Highly recommend Excel Academics!

Nischal is great tutor and doesn’t just tell me what to do, rather gets me to think about the solutions to the problems and it has helped me a lot.

Great personalised tutoring. My 17 year old son's year 11 results were disappointing so we tried Excel for two subjects in year 12. He's now one term into his year 12 studies and he's enjoying the tutoring and his results have improved a lot.

Sreeya was an amazing tutor who helped me so much! She's very organised and every lesson was set up perfectly and made it very easy to communicate. She explained everything step by step ensuring I understood everything, and sent me screenshots of all the work we did so I could look over it again!

I'm not new to tutoring and I can say that Sue has been the best tutor I've had so far. She not only caught me up in areas I was struggling with, but gave me a lot of suppor tand advice outisde of lessons to make sure I was on top of school work. Due to this, my grades went from just passing to high A's, and I'm also currently learnign ahead of the class. She always went the extra mile to make sure I understood each topic, patiently walking me through everything step-by-step and helping me practice with her resources until I was confident. I'll definitely be sticking with Sue for the rest of highschool!

Sreeya was able to help me understand all topics with deep understanding making sure I was comfortable with the concept at all times. She was incredibly patient and had consistent communication and punctuality throughout our time together. Even though it was a large amount of concepts in a short period to prepare for an exam, she was completely understanding and worked perfectly with the schedule given. I was able to pass my exams with an amazing result and am pleased with the service provided.

How I ranked 1st in Year 11 Chemistry...

Written by:
What you will cover in school / tutoring:

“In Term 1 of Year 11, I ranked 1st in Chemistry in Canberra. How did I do this you may ask… it was all just – you guessed it – A LOT of practice. 

But how exactly did I practice and what did I use? 

Even if Chemistry isn’t your strongest subject, the strategies I’ll be covering are definitely worth trying out; after all, Chemistry is known to scale very well, meaning an improvement in the subject could boost your ATAR. 

In fact, by the end of Year 12, Chemistry was my highest scaling subject, pulling in a 223.25 course score, ranking 3rd overall in Canberra, and as a bonus: qualifying for the National Chemistry Olympiad Summer Camp 🙂

My Story:

This success story starts all the way back in mid-Year 10, where I was learning the fundamentals of Chemistry to prepare for the Australian Chemistry Olympiad exam. 

I actually had an awesome Chemistry tutor helping me out, who by, teaching from a Cambridge Chemistry textbook and several Australian Chemistry Olympiad past papers, helped me achieve a Distinction! 

It might sound a little dramatic, but this achievement was lifechanging towards my confidence in academics. More importantly though, it showed me how effort can surpass natural talent (FYI I used to be terrible at Science).

What to do during class time:

So effort, or should I say practice, became the foundation of any strategy I used for Chemistry exam preparation. 

More specifically, I would always complete the questions assigned by my teacher in college and pay close attention in class; after all, your teachers are the ones creating and marking your exams! They will go through the marking scheme in detail for your upcoming exams, so please do not take this for granted! 

For questions I got wrong, I would highlight them and come back to them two weeks before the exam to reattempt them.

How to practice for exams:

After finishing all class work, I relied heavily on Chemistry textbooks borrowed from the school library to do lots – and I mean LOTS – of extra practice for every single topic covered in class on a daily basis. 

I would once again apply the same method of highlighting, collating, and reattempting at a later date questions I would get wrong; but I would also highlight really tricky questions I managed to get correct, to ensure I am able to solve them again later on (partly to make myself believe the first time wasn’t a fluke!). 

Finally, I would create a summary sheet summarising my approach to each question type and any concepts I had gotten incorrect multiple times. The trick here is to be very selective in what you include in your summary sheet! Don’t include everything single thing you need to remember: only include the information, formulae or methods you keep forgetting or getting wrong.  

How to memorise content for assessments:

While practice is great for calculation-heavy topics such as Electrochemistry, topics like Organic Chemistry require a slightly different approach. To memorise concepts, I would use Notion; specifically, the toggle function to create digital flashcards and test myself every other day (increasing the frequency leading up to exams). 

Speaking of memorisation, as you can see above, several units build upon each other; for example, the first unit of Stoichiometry and Chemical Foundations will build the skills to be able to complete the Thermochemistry and Gas Laws unit. However, besides remembering the fundamentals, you won’t have to keep all content memorised as in Canberra, there are no end of year exams covering all the Year 11 and Year 12 content.”
