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.

The English Extension 1 Curriculum in Sydney

With us, your academic journey won’t be limited to our lessons. We’ll provide additional support outside of class and adjust lesson plans as you progress – giving you the best chance possible across the HSC Extension 1 English examinations when they come around! Our cutting-edge curriculum follows Sydney’s Extension 1 English curriculum standards so that nothing comes between you and a successful future.

HSC Extension 1 English is one of the best HSC subjects in Sydney, and it can be particularly rewarding if approached with dedication and enthusiasm. The subject covers a range of modules which allow students to explore various aspects of literature and language use. These modules include Comparative Study of Texts and Context, Writing on Demand, Close Study of Texts, and Representation & Text.

The Comparative Study of Texts & Context module requires students to compare two texts from different eras, from different contexts and with different authors. This module is designed to help students understand how prior texts influence contemporary ones and how contextual factors shape literature. The Writing on Demand module tasks students to write short essays based on the stimulus they are given. Students are expected to think critically about the topics they are presented with as well as demonstrate an understanding of their chosen texts. In Close Study of Texts, students must choose one text to focus their analysis on – this may be poetry, prose or drama. They are expected to explore the relationship between form and meaning in order to explain how the overall message is conveyed through its structure. Finally, Representation & Text asks students to consider representations in texts; these could be cultural values or stereotypes that may be present within the text through language choices or symbolism.

Studying for HSC Extension 1 English requires dedication and effort in order to achieve a high ATAR score. Firstly, regularly completing practice exams ahead of time can help build confidence for tackling exam questions under pressure on the day itself. Additionally, studying notes from class lectures alongside any relevant course material helps consolidate any knowledge gained from lessons from an academic perspective; reading annotations or doing creative writing projects can also help strengthen comprehension skills when it comes to tackling unseen passages come exam time. Most importantly however is taking breaks; make sure you take regular breaks throughout your study sessions so that your mind does not become overwhelmed by all information taken in at once!
