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”

Maths, the word that send chills down the spines of all students - but it doesn’t need to be that way. Don’t get me wrong, Maths is a very intense subject across but there are strategies to make maths more manageable and set yourself up for success. It's important to stay calm and use your time to set yourself up well from the start of your maths journey, all the way to super difficult maths in year 12.
In maths you can never do too many practice questions, you do not know what a test or an exam will hit you with so practising over and over means you will be prepared for whatever is thrown at you. The best way to make sure you have understood a concept is to do practice questions and then check your answers with solutions - ideally worked solutions as these give you an insight of what steps you need to include for full marks!
And of course, it is good to do as many practice exams as possible to get a feel for what it will be like under exam conditions. Doing practice exams under exam conditions allows you to both get used to the time constraints and pressure of the exam as well as get familiar with the types of questions you will be asked. The more practice exams you do, the more you will be familiar and comfortable with the questions you are asked.
Reading time in maths exams is super useful, so make sure you read every single question and get a feel for what they are asking. Know which questions will take you a lot of time or are harder and plan your time accordingly. Smashing out the quicker and easier questions is a good way to guarantee some marks on the exam. There is no point staring at a question for the first 20 minutes of your exam when another question might be something you are comfortable answering, take a deep breath, stay calm and move on to a question you are confident with (you can always come back later).
The pressure of a maths test can lead to silly mistakes in basic arithmetic and not understanding the question. It is important to read the questions carefully and make sure in your answer that you are responding to the actual question and not what you think the question might be. Maths exams will try to trick you, reading the questions carefully and using a highlighter to highlight all the key information can give you a boost!
Your maths curriculum 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 your studies or subject specific help, KIS Academics tutors have a thorough understanding of their subjects and can assist in understanding curriculum requirements. Our tutors are able to provide materials and teaching on how to prepare for maths assessments. Learn about our maths tutoring and book a free study skills consultation with a KIS Academics tutor.
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
Hi! My name is Jack, and even though it's been quite a few years since I graduated high school, I know exactly how you must be feeling towards your own VCE journey. All the pressure you’re put under by your school, parents and yourself to do well will lead to a lot of one-nighters and stress throughout the year. I had my fair share of these moments when I was in Year 11 and 12 and my goal is to use my own experiences to ensure that you will be able to study in the best way possible and also have enough time to do the things you love.
While I was completing VCE, I juggled studying with playing in the firsts team for two sports, a lot of music rehearsals and school leadership duties. I was forced to organise my time extremely well and my busy lifestyle pushed me to find efficient and effective ways of studying. I learnt how to condense and breakdown concepts quickly and I believe I can maximise your academic potential and study efficiency.
Now that high school is over, I am studying a Doctor of Medicine at The University of Melbourne after completing a Biomed undergraduate degree on the Chancellor's Scholarship.
Although I’m terrible at it, I enjoy playing tennis with friends and I also love to go for runs and play badminton!
Hi! I'm Yaroslava but you can call me Yarra.
I graduated from Somerville House with an ATAR of 98.55 and am now studying Computer Science and Law (Honours) at the University of Queensland. I did Year 12 under the new QCE system during COVID, so I definitely learned a thing or two about studying smart, not hard.
The subjects I did were English, Maths Methods, Chemistry, Physics, Modern History, Chinese and Russian. I genuinely loved learning content for both STEM and humanities once I realized all the anxiety around long study hours was really unnecessary. I received 99/100 in English, 94/100 in Physics, the highest score in Queensland in Russian and academic commendation from the QCAA.
My teaching is enthusiastic, and my style is concept-centered. I make sure you understand the underlying ideas and relationships within the subject using clear notes and explanations before doing practice questions. While memorization is undeniably a part of some subjects, you'd be surprised how much can be logically explained away instead of cramming. My aim is to make sure you understand everything you need to know in the long term and tailor my teaching to you: the student.
I'm keen to help you achieve **your ** goals, whether it's learning content, assignment help, improving study techniques, or fostering a life-long love of learning!
Hi, I’m Luke and I graduated with an ATAR of 99.95 in the QCE system and achieved perfect scores of 100 in Methods and Physics and 99 in Specialist and Chemistry. I am also a future medical student.
Having a tutor can really make an impact on your academic performance at school. Tutors can help motivate you and give you the extra push that helps you achieve the best you can. I believe that learning comes down two aspects: understanding and practice. As a tutor, I will take my time to make sure that you have a solid understanding of complex topics and provide you with a variety of practice questions so that you can strengthen that understanding.
