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”

Online tutoring: Just a COVID thing or making education easier to access?

Online tutoring is when a tutor and a student connect via an online method such as a zoom call, rather than meeting in person. It was extremely popular throughout 2020 and 2021 across Australia, especially in the states hardest hit by COVID lockdowns, New South Wales and Victoria (We feel for you guys! 🙏)

But now, as the world returns to normal life, is it still worth getting online tutoring?

Based on what we've seen, it's a resounding yes! Online tutoring has so many benefits that make it better than face-to-face lessons by a mile:

No time-wasting with traffic jams 🚗🚌🚛

People are eagerly awaiting self-driving cars. Why? Because we all hate driving and being stuck in traffic-jams! So if you could get tutored from the comfort of your own home, save time and money on petrol and receive an identical (or even better) learning experience, why wouldn't you!

Online tutoring allows you to save travel time. Across a single lesson, it may only seem like 10 minutes each way. But let's stretch that out. You travel 10 minutes to and from your tutoring location, and that's 20 minutes in total. If you have 3 lessons, that's a whole hour of travel!

Getting an online tutor can save you countless hours throughout the year. If you're a student sitting year 11 or 12, those hours of precious study (or sleep!) time add up a lot and can really make a massive difference to your score at the end of the year.

Better tools to make learning efficient 🛠📲🔬

Technology makes everything better, smoother and faster. That's why technology is everywhere, even in our pockets! When it comes to learning, getting tutored online also follows this same trend. You can still see your tutor face-to-face and learn from them just like normal, but in addition there are lots of tools to make lessons more engaging and interesting. Tutors can share their screen to use digital whiteboards, annotate tests and english essays and highlight important information with ease, and work together to solve problems on a digital whiteboard with students.

On top of that, you can get even more creative! Sharing a screen for a youtube video of a chemistry experiment or a historical documentary allows you to get a much more immersive experience than with just pen and paper. Plus, you can screenshot, copy paste and even record lesson content for later!

100 times better than zoom school 👩🏫💻

A lot of parents and students had really bad experiences with Zoom School. It wasn't the teachers' fault, it's just extremely difficult to teach a class of 30 blank faces over zoom!

But here's where online tutoring shines. The reason Online school was so difficult for students is because a teacher had to focus on 20-30 different faces on their laptop. As a student, you can easily switch screens to Facebook or Video Games (or Tiktok) and the teacher would never know! They can't make sure all 30 people in a Zoom call are focused.

But with one-to-one lessons, ALL the tutor's attention is on you. They are engaging with you, talking directly to you, asking you questions and have 100% of their attention on you. You can't help but be switched on and learn! This makes online private tutoring much better than online school because for the entirety of the lesson, the tutor has only one person to focus on... YOU!

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.

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

Annabelle Ruiz




Hello! My name is Annabelle Ruiz and I graduated from Ivanhoe Girls Grammar with an ATAR of 99.25. I am currently studying a Bachelor of Biomedicine at Melbourne University and intend to pursue a Doctor of Medicine.

I have a passion for learning and have a variety of study tools and strategies I adjust based on the year level of my students and what works best for them. I understand that each of us learn in different ways and will work to understand what works best for my students and help strengthen any areas of study that are proving to be hard or challenging.

My goal as your tutor is to help you excel, improve your marks whilst enjoying the process of learning. I will encourage you to go beyond your limits, break through any reservations you may have about a subject and achieve your academic potential.

I know from my own experience that school can be both an exciting and stressful time for students. I will encourage all my students to learn how to effectively balance their studies with their leisure time to ensure they maintain a healthy lifestyle.

I spent my time split evenly between extensive study sessions, playing groovy bass guitar in school bands and cuddling my two cute dogs Prince and Lady (excuse the names, I was 7). My favourite thing to do on weekends is exercising, catching up with friends and watching Chicago Med on Netflix.

Regardless of what stage of school you are at, I would be delighted to tutor you, to help you achieve over and above your own academic expectations.

Feel free to contact me and I would be more than happy to tell you more about my tutoring style and approach.
