Ancient, Modern and Extension History Tutoring

Homework Help: The first 30 – 45 minutes of class time is devoted to helping students with their school History homework.  More than just coaching ahead of the syllabus, we also lay the foundation for understanding theories and concepts students are learning in school. Academy Homework: All homework given at Au Academy centers on HSC-style questions or targeting existing weaknesses.
Interactive Lecture: emphasis on HSC-style History concepts, theories and vocabulary; going over Ancient, Modern and Extension History syllabus by topic and dot points; all students will receive study guides and a class book. Problem-Solving: students learn History by solving problems and analysing them with the help of our Educators.

What We Provide

Proven Results

We have helped students gain admission to the Top Universities in the World (e.g., MIT, UCLA, USyd and Berkeley) and helped students rank nationally and globally.  We have helped students score in the 90th – 100th percentile on several standardised tests.  We can help you with your target goals, whether that is a 99.95 ATAR or admission to Harvard.

Students are exposed to various visual, textual and auditory resources.  Our interactive lectures help students understand and interpret their class materials.  All classes are taught by qualified, experienced Au Academy Educators.
