All I remember was shouting at the top of my lungs “MUM, DAD.” I scared the sh*t out of them I yelled so loud. They didn’t even know why I was so ecstatic.It took so long to sink in and to just say the words: “I did it. I don’t know how but I got a 99.95 ATAR”

Essay writing is an important skill for English...

Writing essays can definitely be a challenge but essay-writing is a very important skill to master for your high school and tertiary studies. While essays can take many forms (depending on the subject, content and audience), we are here to offer a solid framework that will help you get one step closer to writing that perfect essay.


Your essay must follow a clear and logical structure that supports your argument. Even if your evidence might be lacking, structure will get you a long way in ensuring your argument is easy to follow. Some subjects and topics will require slightly different structures. We recommend that you discuss those nuances with one of our private tutors here at KIS. In the mean time, the following structure should provide a solid start:

  1. Introduction
    Your introduction is the first thing that your audience reads so you really want to be making a good first impression on your reader. Use the introduction as an opportunity to bring your initial thoughts together in a succinct way and then provide a roadmap of where you are headed with the rest of your essay.
  2. Body
    The body of your essay consists of paragraphs, each a building block in the construction of your argument. You want to use the body of your essay to answer the question through added detail and sophisticated reasoning of related evidence. Take it as an opportunity to show your knowledge of the prescribed materials (as well as wider reading if relevant).

    The content and amount of body paragraphs is in your hands but generally 3-4 paragraphs (each dedicated to a new idea/ point) will allow you to develop your argument with sufficient detail.
  3. Conclusion
    Your conclusion should not just be a repeat of the introduction. While your introduction moves from broad to specific, your conclusion should move from specific to more broad. Never introduce new content or ideas for the conclusion although, you might want to make your essay more thought-provoking by offering some food for thought for the reader (of course, related to what you have already said).

Mastering english and essay-writing can be quite complex, and understanding what's going on can be very daunting for new students and parents. If you ever need some assistance with english and essay-writing, KIS Academics tutors have a thorough understanding of the subjects and can assist in understanding curriculum requirements too. Our tutors are able to provide materials and teaching on how to prepare for english assessments.

As a year 11 student doing ATAR, I was looking for a tutor that could help me with French. KIS Academics was incredibly helpful and fast at finding me someone who could assist me with my studies. My tutor Eliza Carey over the past few months has helped me so much not only in French but in biology and maths as well. I’m incredibly grateful for the effort and commitment she has put into helping me be more comfortable and less stressed about the subjects I was having difficulty with. It’s been nothing but an honour to be tutored by Eliza and I strongly recommend her as a tutor

Huey Truong




Hi! I'm Huey and I graduated as the 2020 dux of St Kevin's College with a 99.90 ATAR and perfect 50s in English and Chemistry. I'm pleased to be offering tutoring for English and Maths. Currently, I'm studying Medicine at Monash University.

Why you can trust me:

  • 400+ hrs experience
  • Accepted into 3 medical schools across Australia
  • Currently tutoring students from some of Melbourne's top-performing high schools (MHS, Scotch College, Xavier College, Caulfield Grammar, PLC, etc.)

As a tutor, I provide:

  • Structured lesson plans that will make your learning as streamlined as possible
  • Detailed notes
  • Exam-style questions
  • Practice SACs/exams (a lot)
  • 24/7 assistance
  • Med entry guidance (UCAT/MMI)

The two things I emphasise most are understanding the content and conveying your understanding through well-structured answers. I really enjoy tutoring you guys and I hope it shows in my teaching. Looking forward to working with you :))

Mia Sheridan




Hi, I’m Mia! Having graduated recently, I’m studying a Bachelor of Commerce/Bachelor of Advanced Studies (Dalyell Scholars) at the University of Sydney to further my passion for economics and more!

Throughout my high school experience, I’ve had my fair share of tutors. And so, I know how it feels to still be confused despite having a private tutor! Annoying right? However, I hope I can solve this issue for you, or even prevent you from having to experience this.

Through my sessions, I will ensure our tutorials will be tailored specifically to your needs, instilling the necessary confidence and knowledge within you to achieve your goals!

I’ve also participated in many sports throughout high school, having to achieve a healthy balance of studying with sports to maximise efficiency. As a result, I’ve learnt many tips and tricks along the way which hopefully I can impart onto my students!

Michaela Spiteri




Hey!! I’m Michaela and I’m here to make study a little easier for you.

Throughout school I was obsessed with getting good marks and doing well. It wasn’t until my later years that I realised this obsession was becoming unsustainable and, at times, very stressful. So I revised my study patterns to make school and studying something that I actually enjoyed… and even looked forward to!

This new study routine was all about being as productive as possible… maximising grind time so I could also enjoy doing the things I loved (guilt free): going to the beach, seeing friends, online shopping, watching netflix!

As a tutor, I’ll be here to guide you through this approach, whilst supporting you with course content and answering any specific questions that you may have along the way. We will focus on setting lots of little goals so you can realise your final big goal! This mindset made school a lot less daunting for me and I’m sure it will for you too.

I have continued to practice this mindset at uni, where I study Commerce/ Law at the ANU. Making sure I am productive with my time means that study never ‘takes over’ and I can always enjoy a night out (or more likely a night in, binging my current fave series).
