ACE SPECIALIST HSC TUITION
Live Online HSC Tutoring & UCAT Preparation
WEEKLY SUPPORT FOR HIGH ACHIEVERS
ACE HSC provides a uniquely agile top-quality tutoring system that keeps ambitious students on track for HSC and UCAT preparation. Our students are typically self-directed high achievers who want to master their work, and we continually create ways to support this. Wherever students are located, come rain or shine, they have a reliable place to learn, grow, and succeed at ACE HSE specialist tutoring.
THE ACE HSC EXPERIENCE
The core of our model of excellence is our evidence-based ‘Learn, Apply, Revise’ format.
Live online Theory class where the tutor teachers a new topic each week.
Live Problem-Based Class (PBC) where the tutor provides activities like quizzes.
Live Tutorial where students clarify their understanding of this week and last week's content with the tutor, and prepare for future assignments.
Lesson format. The format of our live online HSC tutoring classes is exactly the same as our sought-after traditional in-person onsite classes: Learn, Apply, Revise. Each program covers a whole school year, and is billed by the term. Each term is eight weeks long.
Lesson support. Live Online Classes are supplemented by a full set of resources including eight printed Student Workbooks (one per week), and links to pre-recorded Lesson Videos. Our online learning portal also provides a 24×7 student messaging board for students to post questions to tutors and get them answered, or engage fellow students in discussions.
Tutored subjects. Subjects offered are HSC Chemistry, Physics, Extension 1 Mathematics, and Economics, plus UCAT Preparation.
Streams offered. Our HSC and Year 11 classes come in two streams (Standard and Accelerated; Accelerated programs in Year 11 and Year 12 start a term earlier than the regular school term). We offer a single stream each for UCAT and Year 10 Mathematics tutoring.
Where to attend. Once registered, students can choose from our Parramatta, Epping, or Online campuses where they attend weekly lessons. (see our timetable).
BENEFITS TO STUDENTS
The key benefits of receiving live ACE HSC tutoring with an optional online campus:
High student engagement – Small classroom sizes (typically 4 to 6 students per class online and 12 to 20 students per class onsite) means students get more opportunities to chat directly with their subject tutor, ask questions, check their learning retention, enjoy learning alongside peers, and more.
Flexible and self-paced learning – Our comprehensive offering of in-person and live online tuition, audio-visual resources, live and 24×7 messaging, printed workbooks, high tutor and student interaction, and timetable options means students receive the best support for excellent learning outcomes.
High parent satisfaction – Parents get peace of mind that their children receive reliably scheduled and structured tutoring sessions with minimal interruption.
Access to quality specialists – Location is no longer an obstacle to learning from the best, for HSC students in remote or country regions and UCAT aspirants outside NSW.
Evidence-based content structure – Same proven ‘Learn, Apply, Revise’ model used in both our onsite and online tutoring classes.
WHAT MAKES ACE HSC TUTORING UNIQUE
The top quality yet flexible tutoring we provide comes from the synergy of great tutors and great technology.
We offer at least 1 online class per week for all subjects at ACE, usually these are mid-week evening classes from 6pm. For details, please go to our timetables page, and tick ‘Online’ under ‘Campus’ to generate a list of available online cohorts, subjects, days, and tutors. Scroll down to see Class Times.
Students can start the enrolment process by filling in our online form, and then get parents or guardians to complete it by providing payment.
Just like our on-campus classes, you are invited to trial ACE for two weeks with no obligation. Once you have decided to continue with ACE, you will be invoiced for the current term.
During your two week trial, you will have acces to a digital copy of the ACE workbooks so that you can examine the content. A full set of printed workbooks will be posted to you when commit to the term and your invoice is issued.
When a student enrols, they get access to both online and onsite tutoring at no extra cost. So, yes, the student may choose to attend only online tutoring, especially when it is difficult for them to travel to an ACE HSC tutoring centre.
Absolutely not. If you would like to attend online classes, please just let our friendly Admin team know and they will book you in to attend these classes as an alternative, or suppliment, to your on-campus lessons.
A typical student laptop or desktop computer with reliable Internet connection of 5mbs or more will suffice for the student to have a smooth and successful live online tutoring session. Often times we find students WiFi signal is a bigger issue than their internet connection. If your Internet connection seems unreliable, you may try moving your computer closer to your home Wi-Fi router, use an Ethernet cable instead of Wi-Fi, restart your router or, if all else fails, get technical support from your Internet Service Provider (ISP).
