Are you looking for private tutoring in Melbourne?

The causes of problems or learning difficulties in school can be manifold, but are not a reason to despair. Each pupil has individual learning problems or needs, which we identify with you at the beginning in a detailed consultation on site and then create an optimal support plan, which is tailored exactly to your child. With this individual development plan, your child starts private lessons. The private lesson is always divided into six teaching phases in order to give your child the necessary confidence when learning. There is the welcome phase, the learning objective agreement, the development, the safeguarding of what has been learned, the reflection and the farewell.

Professional tutoring at LGT Tutors 

Here at LGT, we have a large network of private tutoring locations, for example in Melbourne and many other locations, so that we can also offer private tutoring in your area. In our age-appropriate classrooms, students find very good conditions for a relaxed learning atmosphere. This confirms the good quality of our tutoring institutes and provides parents with decision support in their search for qualified tutoring.

What benefits can private tutoring in Melbourne do?

  • Individual support: recognize the strengths and weaknesses of the student, eliminate lack of motivation
  • Developing, deepening, closing gaps
  • Teaching of learning techniques, learning tips
  • concentration exercises

A good tutor will know where a student’s problems are starting. He gives tips and hints for suitable learning techniques. Students dare to do more, divide their time better and dismantle examination fears. In addition, the relationship with the parents relaxes.

Which private tutoring Melbourne offers for tutoring are there? 

Before parents consider a particular form of tutoring, they should have a counseling interview with the class or subject teacher. He can judge whether it is a general overload or isolated knowledge gaps. Together, a suitable follow-up action can then be determined. Incidentally, parents are the worse tutor because they are too close to the child and do not muster the necessary patience.

  • Many schools organize tuition themselves, which you can use for a small fee. Lessons are given to older students in subjects in which they have fun and therefore also good grades. The adolescent “teachers” know what is required. They know the preferences and tricks of the educators. •Students or retired teachers can often give you a good tutoring.
  • If you do not find such a solution, there is an innovative and flexible tuition market, which has mainly established itself on the Internet. Here are the most varied tutoring offers.
  • You can also use a professional tutoring institute. Here, the students are usually taught in groups (about 3 to 5 students). The group composition is based on age, subject and type of school (high school or middle school). The courses have fixed lessons (usually two double lessons of 90 minutes per week) and the courses usually take six months.
  • For children who are easily distracted, private lessons are optimal – but also more costly.
  • Not to forget are PC and Internet. These also offer some options, such as learning software.
  • There are also holiday courses and special courses for specific exam preparation.

Individual or group lessons

“How is the group size? Many students appreciate small learning groups with diverse mutual support and the realization that you are not the only one with difficulties in a subject. However, it is important that the group is as homogeneous as possible in terms of subject and age and does not exceed five pupils.

Individual tuition does not always have to be the most effective form of tutoring. But there are also cases – for example with specific learning difficulties or exotic subjects – where individual tuition is the better choice.

Prices and current offers

The cost of tutoring depends on your child’s individual needs and on how many subjects your child needs support in, how often he or she receives tutoring per week and whether you want small groups (from three to five students), one-to-one lessons or tutoring online. This gives you the best possible support at a very good price-performance ratio. You can even test our lessons free of charge and convince yourself directly of the advantages in the study circle.

Looking for online private tutoring in Melbourne? 

If the nearest private tutoring school is too far or your child only has time for private tutoring on weekends? Then our offer of online tutoring is just right for you. Your child will be taught by a qualified tutor like in our local tutoring institutes – with the difference that the lessons are held via video chat.

Further advantages are: You have no travel time and costs, you can book the lessons flexibly and at short notice and determine your own learning location (at home, on holiday …).

#TutorsofLGT | Interview With Gillian Theodoris

Chemistry Tutor | An Interview with Gillian Theodoris, This Weeks Featured #tutorsofLGT

 

As part of our #tutorsofLGT campaign, this week we are featuring one of LGT‘s top Chemistry Tutors, Gillian Theodoris. As a Platinum Chemistry tutor, she has conducted well over 50 hours worth of private tutoring and has earned her spot as one of LGT’s most active Tutors of 2018.

Our aim behind the #tutorsofLGT campaign is to give light to to some of LGT Tutoring’s most dedicated and experienced tutors. In answering some of these questions and sharing their stories, we hope it will not only inspire our students, but also tutors who are just starting out.

We asked Gillian some questions and here is what she had to say!

1. Out of all the tutoring you have done, what moment stood out to you the most?

“The moments that stand out to me the most are when you can visibly see your student improving, it makes all the hard work that both of you put in seem worth it!”

2. If you go back and advise your younger self to do anything different while studying, what would it be and why?

“I would tell my younger self to just focus on the work that is in front of me and not to get too worked up or overwhelmed about the bigger picture (for example the ATAR) as it can take away time from doing your best in that moment.”

3. With over 50 hours of tutoring experience, what advice would you have for other tutors? 

“I would advise other tutors to tailor their methods to each different student they have; everyone learns differently and even though it may take a few sessions to understand how your student learns, it’ll help both of you in the long run!”


On behalf of LGT Tutoring, we want to thank Gillian for answering those questions and all her continuous hard work.

Maths Methods Tutor | An Interview with Dori Deng, This Weeks Featured #tutorsofLGT

 

As part of our #tutorsofLGT campaign, this week we are featuring one of LGT‘s top Maths Methods Tutors, Dori Deng. As a Platinum Maths Methods tutor, she has conducted well over 50 hours worth of private tutoring and has earned her spot as one of LGT’s most active Tutors of 2018.

Our aim behind the #tutorsofLGT campaign is to give light to to some of LGT Tutoring’s most dedicated and experienced tutors. In answering some of these questions and sharing their stories, we hope it will not only inspire our students, but also tutors who are just starting out.

We asked Dori some questions and here is what she had to say!

1. Out of all the tutoring you have done, what moment stood out to you the most?

“The moments that really stood out to me are the times when a student tells me that they understood a topic better after my explanations – the moments when I know that my knowledge is successfully delivered to the student. Tutoring is something I enjoy doing, and I will always want to improve my teaching skills.”

2. If you go back and advise your younger self to do anything different while studying, what would it be and why?

“If I could go back and advise my younger self, I would tell my 16-year-old self (I was in year 10 back then) to never panic. The good things will come, everything will work out, you just need to try your best. What matters the most is who you are, whether you are happy, whether you are living your life to its full potential, whether you are doing everything you can to be a better person than who you are today. If you want a different life than now, you have to change who you are, you have to be different, for you cannot trade your same old self for a brand new life. You need to be better, and you can be. Live the life that you want to live, and know this – it is never too late. If you find out that your life right now is not the way you want it too be, find the courage and start over again.”

3. With over 50 hours of tutoring experience, what advice would you have for other tutors? 

“To other tutors – being with LGT is like being a part of a big family. We improve together, and we grow together, through open-minded communication and the sharing of knowledge. Enjoy your journey with LGT and try your best, because that is how we learn and improve. There is always room for improvement, and we can always be better.”


On behalf of LGT Tutoring, we want to thank Dori for answering those questions and all her continuous hard work.

 

#TutorsofLGT | Interview With Daniel Hamilton

English Tutor | An Interview with Daniel Hamilton, This Weeks Featured #tutorsofLGT

 

As part of our #tutorsofLGT campaign, this week we are featuring one of LGT‘s top English Tutors, Daniel Hamilton. As a Platinum English tutor, she has conducted well over 50 hours worth of private tutoring and has earned her spot as one of LGT’s most active Tutors of 2018.

Our aim behind the #tutorsofLGT campaign is to give light to to some of LGT Tutoring’s most dedicated and experienced tutors. In answering some of these questions and sharing their stories, we hope it will not only inspire our students, but also tutors who are just starting out.

We asked Daniel some questions and here is what she had to say!

1. Out of all the tutoring you have done, what moment stood out to you the most?

“Being a VCE English tutor with LGT Tutoring for a couple years now, a lot has stood out to me. If I had to choose, I’d take it back to term 3 of Year 12, as I wrote an English essay piece when it hit me: why am I doing this? Why am I doing all this work for a ‘good’ VCE English study score? When that happened, I began to do school work I thought was meaningless. I’m sure every student has had this thought. But there is a solution, and it’s the most important thing I teach my students as a VCE English tutor: find your voice, use it, and never apologize for it. There’s no way I can adequately describe how awesome the relationship is between tutor and student. In 2017 I tutored Julie in VCE English as a Second Language (EAL) – she was an all-round awesome person and maths/science whizz. My tutoring highlight is watching her grow to have the audacity to voice (in her second language) what she thought. Rather than trying to emulate ‘high-scoring’ VCE English essays, Julie began to write her own contention and interpretation of texts. As a result of all the tutoring, she began to clearly express her own opinions and improved significantly as a result. One-by-one, through my tutoring classes, I try to teach young people that the best you can possibly do is to learn and voice what you think. No ATAR score is going to be as fulfilling as that, believe me. “

2. With over 50 hours of tutoring experience, what advice would you have for other tutors? 

“Tutors are typically known as high-scoring ATAR people who write your essays and hand out answers. If that’s all you do, you’re not an LGT Tutor. A real tutor enshrines the idea that you are an independent learner who has something valuable to say. I tutor VCE Further Maths, Humanities, Psychology, and all levels of English, and my approach is always the same: if you don’t have the confidence to think for yourself and act on it, then you’re never going to grow. I’d advise other tutors to take this approach especially with their VCE students. Have a clear focus in mind that you want to communicate to your students before the class begins. Try and go beyond the conventional private tutoring classes, fixated on subject-based learning. As a tutor you have the power to give your student something no ATAR or study score can – a voice. “


On behalf of LGT Tutoring, we want to thank Daniel for answering those questions and all her continuous hard work.

 

#TutorsofLGT | Interview With Christine He

Specialist Maths Tutor | An Interview with Christine He, This Weeks Featured #tutorsofLGT

 

As part of our #tutorsofLGT campaign, this week we are featuring one of LGT‘s topSpecialist Maths Tutors, Christine He. As a Platinum Specialist Maths tutor, she has conducted well over 50 hours worth of private tutoring and has earned her spot as one of LGT’s most active Tutors of 2018.

Our aim behind the #tutorsofLGT campaign is to give light to to some of LGT Tutoring’s most dedicated and experienced tutors. In answering some of these questions and sharing their stories, we hope it will not only inspire our students, but also tutors who are just starting out.

We asked Christine some questions and here is what she had to say!

1. Out of all the tutoring you have done, what moment stood out to you the most?

“As a Maths Methods and Specialist Maths tutor with LGT, out of all the private tutoring I have done, the moment that stood out to me the most was when one of my Maths Methods and Specialist Maths students Harry, understood a topic after we worked hard together on it for many weeks for his upcoming Maths SAC and received an outstanding result. Seeing him so happy and proud of himself after doing well on a Math subject he may not be naturally confident in, made me really happy. After that topic he started being more confident in himself in the rest of his modules.”

2. If you go back and advise your younger self to do anything different while studying, what would it be and why?

“If I could go back and advise my younger self to do anything differently while studying, it would be to not be so hung up in marks so much. Sometimes when I did badly on a test I studied really hard, be it Maths Methods or any other subject, I would be really disappointed with the mark. But when you start focusing less on your scores and more on the concepts you don’t understand, what you get back from the bad test result is a lot more constructive in guiding your academic improvement.”

3. With over 50 hours of tutoring experience, what advice would you have for other tutors? 

“As a Maths Methods and Specialist Maths tutor, I would advise other tutors to get to know their students learning styles before developing an individualised tutoring plan with them. All students learn differently, e.g. some like pictures and learning visually while other learn more by doing problem questions. Take the time before the first lesson to work out how they learn best. This way they will be tutored by you more effectively and makes your private tutoring lessons more enjoyable for the both of you.”


On behalf of LGT Tutoring, we want to thank Christine for answering those questions and all her continuous hard work.

#TutorsofLGT | Interview With Alana Tobgui

English Language Tutor | An Interview with Alana Tobui, This Weeks Featured #tutorsofLGT

 

As part of our #tutorsofLGT campaign, this week we are featuring one of LGT’s top English Language Tutors, Alana Tobgui. As a Platinum English Language tutor, she has conducted well over 50 hours worth of private tutoring and has earned her spot as one of LGT’s most active Tutors of 2018.

Our aim behind the #tutorsofLGT campaign is to give light to to some of LGT Tutoring’s most dedicated and experienced tutors. In answering some of these questions and sharing their stories, we hope it will not only inspire our students, but also tutors who are just starting out.

We asked Alana some questions and here is what she had to say!

1. Out of all the tutoring you have done, what moment stood out to you the most?

“As an English Language Tutor with LGT, I enjoyed many moments whilst tutoring. What stood out to me most is when my English Language students had those light-bulb moments and say, “It’s so simple!”. That’s always so great to see, especially after they have been given a very convoluted explanation in their English Language class. I also remember getting a message from one of my students, ecstatic after getting almost 90% on her SAC, whereas her previous SACs ranged from 60-70%. Seeing improvements in their scores, no matter how large the improvement, always makes my job feel fulfilling!

2. If you go back and advise your younger self to do anything different while studying, what would it be and why?

“When it comes to study advice, I’d say to focus on understanding the concepts behind what you’re learning, and why certain concepts are named the way they are, rather than just memorising what you’re reading. This is particularly helpful to remember for subjects such as Biology and English Language.”

3. With over 50 hours of tutoring experience, what advice would you have for other tutors? 

“As an English Language and Biology tutor, I’d say I have found that each student is different, so try and tailor lessons appropriately. You’ll definitely need some basic subject materials, but add whatever you need based on who you’re teaching. The other most important thing is to listen! Ask them what they were taught during their tutoring class, what they found difficult and if there was anything that they wanted to discuss before you get started. I did this with my English Language and Biology students and saw great results!”

ATARs Are Out | A Message From Our CEO – Leo Alhalabi

 

2017 – What a year it has been…

I can only imagine how nervous you all must have been, waiting for this day to come. Well, it is finally here and I’m hoping that you are all happy with what you received.

On behalf of everyone at LGT Tutoring – every tutor and employee who makes what we do possible, I’d like to extend a massive congratulations to all of our students who today received their ATAR scores.

You have spent the entire year working away, dedicating countless of hours worth of studying and making many sacrifices leading up to your exams. For this reason, you deserve to pat yourself on the back regardless of the score you see in front of you. We say this each year, but it is important to reiterate that for those students who did not receive the score they were hoping for – there will always be another opportunity to secure your path. A score lower than you were anticipating just means that you now have the chance to grow, to reassess your focus and study strategies in the upcoming year.

 

At the end of each year I always feel the same way – I feel grateful for taking action on the lightbulb I had in my head to start a tutoring company. The initial idea was just to have a team of 5 friends and simple Facebook page, yet two and half years later LGT has expanded nationally attracting more than 300 applications from potential tutors in under 2 weeks.

So, now as you enter the real world – if I could leave you with one final piece of advice I would say:

Take immediate action on that idea you have in your head regardless of how big or small your first step may be and who knows, you too could be thanking yourself 2.5 years from now.

To all our students, we in the LGT Team are honoured to have been part of your progress this year — thank-you for trusting us to be part of your VCE. If you would like to publicly thank your tutor, feel free to include their name and review them here on our Facebook page.

Let’s Grow Together,
Leo Alhalabi

 

Double How Much You Get Done With These 2 Quick Productivity Hacks!

Tutors For All Subjects

Procrastination Hack #1

A really efficient technique… (Our CEO Leo Alhalabi uses this!)

If you struggle with procrastination and find it hard to start working or studying, you need to start using the Pomodoro Technique?

It is a technique many of the top achieving students use and can help boost your productivity.

Many students who encounter mental resistance to start their work, find that the Pomodoro Technique is the most useful method for getting over it and actually getting started!

 

This video by Thomas Frank, will teach you exactly how to use it, why it works, and how to improve it. The video also shares a few apps and resources you can use alongside it ??

Click here to watch the video       ——–       Click here for more information on the Pomodoro Technique

 

Procrastination Hack #2

Be Strategic…

With exams only 1 month away from kicking off, things will start to get very hectic.

This is the point where strategy is going to play a big part on how well you do.

Going into your year 12 exams you may have four, five or six subjects that you must prepare for.

Make a decision on which subjects you feel will most likely end up in your top 4.

Out of these top 4 subjects, which two are you strongest and which two are your weakest?

“Improve on your weaknesses but focus on your strengths”.

Plan your day to focus a larger percentage of your time on those two top subjects, a smaller percentage on the weaker two and an even smaller percentage on the two subjects which are not going to make it in your top four.

We can’t exactly tell you what you should include on your list for every day – everyone is different. With that said, we would highly recommend that at this point you are at least doing a handful of practice exam questions for those main subjects everyday.

 

Side note: Education really amazing guys & girls.

We are so blessed to be studying in the best country in the world.

Let’s make the most out of the last 1 month.

Important Times Ahead – Holiday Practice Exam Season

The Time Is Here

As Term 3 draws to a close and we ask ourselves “how did we even get here?”, we all know what awaits us these next few weeks – a practise paper extravaganza.

The lead up to these 2-3 valuable holiday weeks in the schooling year has simultaneously built up a sense of pressure, as if we ought to spend every waking minute with our heads buried in the books. But is this truly the most effective way to spend these next 21 crucial days?

 

Important Weeks Ahead

Undoubtedly, the Term 3 break can be a deciding factor towards exam room performance, but what about taking a break, catching up with friends or going out to house parties? As a wise figure in twenty-first century contemporary society once proclaimed, “por que no los dos?”, which we all naively believe to translate to “why not have both?”; the young taco-ad girl may have just helped us solve another formidable issue. So as the Term 3 holidays are just around the corner, we write to you, to try and help you plan to have both and find the balance between work, play and tacos.

We suggest, after the last day of Term 3, reward yourself for getting this far. Everyone is tired, burnt out and just over it by now so give yourself the entire weekend to recharge. By letting yourself have this break, you won’t be craving one come Monday, when you return to a normal study routine again.

Take 1-2 hours out of your relaxing Sunday just to organise. Print out every single practise exam you plan to do (being realistic for the sake of trees and their sovereignty), make a pile of practise exams per subject in chronological order and write down your goals for the break.

It is a noticeable trend that all students who achieved the highest raw scores were the students who committed to practise papers in the term 3 holidays rather than writing notes. This makes complete sense because by now, you should be trying to figure out what you “don’t know” rather than what you “do know” and the best method to access this is by exposing yourself to as many practise papers as possible.

So, incomplete set of notes? No worries, it’s time to just move on.

Before the first Monday of the holidays, create yourself a vague timetable. Black out days you may be away, every weekend and every night you have other commitments. You should have at least 15 or so blank days to be productive. This is being generous because in reality, once you find your mojo, you’ll naturally want to sneak in some study over the weekend, which will make you feel as though you’re working ahead of your own timetable.

Now, further break up your productive days into 3 sessions; morning, noon and afternoon. This gives you scope to easily complete at least 3 practise papers a day with copious amounts of spare time in between and afterwards.

All well and good up to here, but come Monday morning, set the alarm for a 9am start and it’s time to begin the VCE grind again. It’s a crucial habit to begin your first practise paper at 9am because this is when the English exam will commence and you want to get your body into the habit of being alert at this time.

When it comes to sitting the papers, instead of giving yourself 15 minutes reading time, give yourself 5! It gets you into the stress induced habit of skimming through everything quickly, so under the pressure of exam conditions you’ll do the same but then look up at the clock and realize, “wow I’ve actually got heaps of time”.

Exam Conditions

Time every single exam you do, purely to build your confidence that you can easily finish the real exam in less than the time provided. If you are seriously stuck just skip the question and mark it red. After proof-reading your practice, mark your exam and read the examiners report thoroughly because this will tell you how others went and which areas others struggled on. In red, mark every question you answered incorrectly and literally cut them out and put it into a folder or book. Record the exam paper and question number of the incorrect questions.

You should be building on this book every time you sit an exam.

So after the first 2 weeks, you’ll have this massive pile of the most difficult questions in your book without denying yourself the opportunity to go to weekend parties and events. Midway through the third week, it’s time to stop doing more practise exams and use your ultimate VCE success weapon – your own book of errors.

During the final few days, it’s crucial to review and reattempt every single question in the errors book; if you get it wrong again, keep the question in the book so you can ask if it’s still relevant to the 2016 study design or if you’re forgetting an important concept.

These are the questions you should be pasting into your notes book for the exam (if you are allowed).

By the last day of revision you should be able to sit back and think, “that was actually insane!” but really, you’ll know it’s just the beginning.

 

Best of luck to you all!
