We specialise in breaking complex topics down to simple ideas
Who are we?
Welcome to Keep it Simple Academics!
Keep it Simple Academics (or KIS for short) is an educational organisation that revolutionises the way high school students learn and study outside of the classroom. In a day and age where technology has never been more convenient, the current methods of getting extra help seem hopelessly outdated.
Meeting up with a private tutor once a week may seem like a great solution, but how often have you been at home doing your homework and just don't understand a particular concept? You read the textbook, message your tutor or friends, but you'd be lucky to get a response within the next 15 minutes. By the time you get a reply, you've either already moved on or just plainly don't care anymore.

We understand this situation all too well.
Being recent high school graduates ourselves, we know how frustrating it is to not have any burning questions answered right away. This is where we come in. KIS Academics is an online platform where the entire course content of each VCE subject is broken down into short, concept-based videos. We provide a repository of crash courses for you, the students, to access anytime, anywhere.
If you're doing your homework or studying for a test and just have no idea how a particular concept works, all you have to do is go online and watch a video explaining that concept.
Hell, you can even watch the videos on the bus while you're on your way to the SAC you are nowhere near prepared for (we've all done it)
"I literally didn't even study for that SAC"

We know time is valuable.
And we know you'd much rather be playing sport, hanging out with friends or actually making progress on that maths assignment. A successful school year is a balanced school year, and we can help you spend more time off that desk and doing the things you love, while still making academic progress and seeing those grades soar.
How? Our videos are short and concise and cover everything you need to know for a given topic. In addition, we utilise our own past experiences in that subject and give tips and tricks we know will make the examiners happy.
We have put our hearts into making the content easy to understand and cutting out all the unnecessary fluff that schools and textbooks teach. From one student to another, I sincerely hope this course provides you with the tools and support to help you achieve your dream goals

Here's what makes us the best in the business:
The crème de la crème
Here at KIS, we believe that to truly know a subject, and to teach it well, you have to be the best. So we hired the best.
Our tutors are all top scorers, achieving perfect 50s in their respective subjects. But as if being a genius wasn’t enough, we’ve rigorously vetted them to make sure they are both experienced tutors and passionate about the subject they teach. Most of them are studying related courses at uni!
More bang for your buck
A high scoring graduate tutor will likely charge you $50 per hour, with Aussie parents sometimes paying “from a minimum of $2,000 to $3,000 per year upwards of $20,000” (ABC News, 2017).We charge a fraction of that price, with our courses starting at just $200 per year,
By allowing students to learn via video lessons, we can place the focus back on individual feedback, and supporting students by answering the questions they ask
Let’s cut the bulls**t
We teach what you need to know to score well. It’s as simple as that.
Our videos are curated for students, delivering only content that is relevant for exam and SAC preparation.The videos are concise yet thorough – understanding is our priority.
Have a question you need to ask, or an example question you want us to take a look at?
