Regardless of whether you’re studying to get into medicine, engineering, theatre production or just to graduate, it’s important to remember that this time in your life is very short and only comes around once. Despite what you may tell yourself, there are only a couple years left until you’re an adult and out into the world. Your senior years are a crucial point to set yourself up for your future.
It's definitely important to go and study as hard as you can and find out all the best tricks to ace your exams and that's definitely something our High School tutors can help with. But there's more to high school than just study, and you need to remember that!
What I’m going to discuss is how to make the most of your time outside of class and transform your senior years into a truly invaluable experience.
So, without further ado, here are the top things to keep in mind throughout your senior years:
This is a piece of advice that I’ve really learned the value of during uni: get involved and engage. It’s a piece of advice that you can take beyond just your high school years. One of the best things to ensure that you do is to make the most of the opportunities that you are presented with.
You may be wondering WHY this is so useful. Well, there are countless benefits. Straight off the bat, connections – you never know who you might meet when you engage with the chances presented to you. Whether it be your new best friend or a link to your dream career, the people that you meet are so important in shaping both who you are and what you do in life, so why not take the steps now to optimise that? While you’re at it, maybe set yourself up with LinkedIn to keep up to date with these new connections. Another reason, inspiration – until you really have the chance to engage with different fields, you can’t be sure that the path you’ve chosen is the best one for you. It may well be that you haven’t even heard of your dream career, so get involved and broaden your horizons. The last reason that I’ll mention, your resume – the more you do and the more responsibilities that you take on, the more that people will have proof of your dedication and commitment to what you’re involved in.
You might not be all that comfortable throwing yourself into extra responsibilities while you’re dedicated to your studies and that’s okay too. If you decide against external engagements, you can always try new things on your own in moderation when you know that you have the time. There are many ways to better yourself and discover your true passions without having to go to a lot of extra effort. You can try to learn a second language, mess around with video production or dabble with a programming language. There are many things that you can do to discover your interests without having to take a whole lot of time away from your schooling.
Something you may not have expected to find in the list, is to simply spend time with your loved ones. High school may be the last time you see some of your friends, so don’t forget to take the time now to enjoy their company. You’re still young, so cherish it. Go out and get a bit crazy once in a while, make the memories that you can look back on down the line.
High school has so much to offer and is full of important life experiences. That's why we at KIS Academics really focus on study skills and efficiency in our tutoring - so you can be really effective and save time with your study, and then go and get involved to make the most of school. If you want some help becoming a more efficient student to cut down your study time, learn faster and stress less, then request a High School tutor now!
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
Hello! I am Yangda and I graduated from Cranbrook School with an ATAR of 99.55. I'm currently studying for an undergraduate research degree at the ANU in physics with minors in mathematics and computer science.
My approach to tutoring is to inspire students and cultivate the same passion that I have for teaching the subjects. As long as you love what you are learning, the marks will follow! With quite an interdisciplinary background, I will aim to put everything you are learning out of the context of an exam environment and into a broader perspective. Of course, I also have a lot of tips and tricks to maximise your marks as well! It's all about finding that sweet spot which is why each lesson will be tailored to your wants and needs.
I hope to not just be a tutor for your subjects but to be a mentor and help you achieve your goals in all aspects of life. Having been involved in a lot of extracurricular activities during my senior years in high school has taught me a lot about time management and maintaining healthy mental wellbeing. I strongly advocate for these things and will take a holistic mentoring approach to your studies which had made my high school experience very enjoyable.
Outside of my STEM studies, you'll find me jamming on the trombone and piano or cooking up a curry. Super keen to meet you all!
Hi, I'm Katrina! I have graduated from a Biomedical Science degree at Monash University and am currently pursuing post-graduate studies in dentistry at the University of Sydney.
I have actually been tutoring since about year 9! I really enjoyed guiding student's learning and understanding through my own experiences. For me, high school was definitely an interesting ride. I have had to learn so many skills in order to balance my studies and also manage difficult subjects and teachers. These skills saw me through VCE where I eventually learnt how to play the game and prioritise my time between units of study to ultimately get into my dream degree.
Throughout tutoring sessions, I would love to help you learn in a way that suits you. All the subjects that I offer, I am truly passionate about and I want to share that passion with you. In this way, I hope to make learning and studying a more fun and rewarding experience for you.
I would love to be a part of your learning journey! Feel free to reach out if you have any questions.
Hi! My name is Amy and I am currently studying at the University of Sydney. Because I found science (especially chemistry) to be very intriguing, I decided to study the Bachelor of Diagnostic Radiography.
Having completed the new QCE system, I gathered a ton of tips that I know will help you with your journey throughout school. I know for a fact that you can't always rely on pure memorisation to ace your exams. So here, I would love to deliver each lesson so that you can understand every syllabus dotpoint or learning goal in the best way possible. A few examples could be doing step by step breakdowns of complex problems, in depth explanations of science concepts or going through some chemistry problems together - you name it.
Of course, I don't always study 24/7. My day off could look something like hanging out with friends or getting myself lost in some thriller/suspense novels. I would love to help and guide you not only academically but also in all aspects of school life so that you can perform your best.
Getting a tutor for your high school subjects can be an invaluable resource and a way for you to extend your abilities and knowledge. Tutors can be a means through which you develop your understanding of different subjects you would be learning in a personalised environment which can be more beneficial to you than the group setting that you would find at school.
This depends on what you would like to work on. For some students, it may be to focus on what they are learning at school and reinforce that content, whilst for others, it may be staying ahead of their school and extending themselves. Your tutor can help you with either of these approaches (or maybe a bit of both as well), and help you be in a position where you are content with how you are tracking at school. But that’s not all. Your tutor can also guide you on how you can study more effectively and show you some study tips that they might have learnt throughout their academic journey. On top of this, your tutor can also give you advice on how to balance your life better and how to study and enjoy your time at high school as well.
The right tutor for you should be someone who you can connect with well and makes learning engaging. This could be someone who has similar interests to you that you can chat about, or it may be someone who has a very charismatic personality that makes it impossible for you to stop smiling. Ultimately, the tutor you stick with should be someone who keeps you engaged during the lesson.
