At A Team Tuition, we envision a holistic method when it comes to student transformations. For boarding school students, this holistic approach is pertinent in order to provide tailored support to suit the needs of newly independent students. When we were approached by The Southport School (TSS) in 2017 about ways in which we can adopt our personalised service to assist a group of boys in boarding, we came to the realisation that there is an evident gap between boarding youth and the traditional structure of boarding learning.Read More

After almost a decade in the industry, we’ve been exposed to the faults that currently exist in the education system. Australia was ranked 39 out of 41 countries for achieving quality education in 2017 by the United Nation’s Children’s Fund (UNICEF) which analysed the performance of students in reading, maths and science.Read More
You’d be surprised to hear that the learning of facts is not how education works. Rather, the composition of learning is the training of one’s mind to think, but to think about how their mind works. Never a truer word has been spoken by none other than one of the most influential physicists, Albert Einstein. Einstein believed in the principle of differentiated learning and is most famously quoted for drawing an analogy between judging a fish to climb a tree and expecting others to learn the same way.Read More
It is without a doubt that the most rewarding part about tutoring here at A Team Tuition is witnessing the seamless transformation of students unfold right in front of our eyes. With the recent launch of Project limitless Brisbane, we sat down with our winners Sarive Zena and Esther Abiya, whom, over the course of semester one, have truly embodied what it means to be limitless. Their resilience in overcoming adversity and taking control of their education is the epitome of the type of young adult that A Team Tuition strives to foster.Read More
There is one core belief that differentiates those who learn and succeed, and those who don’t, and that is the belief that every failure is an opportunity to grow, not a measurement of your limited ability. The colloquialism that claims, “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks,” is indeed a myth. The mind is characterised by lifelong plasticity; it has the capacity to continually grow and rewire itself. Even if you stumble and fall, time and time again, the power of a growth mindset will always prevail.Read More
When I talk to parents on the phone about how they manage their children, I can practically see their puzzled expression through the phone. It seems like such an odd concept to ‘manage’ a child and often the thought evokes images of bratty sequin covered children and petty squabbles akin to a scene from dance mums. Our parenting expert Janine McEvoy, however, explains that managing your child effectively is one of the most crucial components to their development.Read More
Understanding the fundamentals of a particular subject is crucial to be able to comprehend extended topics and to be able to transition smoothly into different year levels. Take Maths for example. All units are intrinsically interlinked. Without a basic understanding of algebra, how does one understand linear equations or be able to complete extended material taught in following year levels? For student Zachary Green, this was exactly his dilemma. He lacked the fundamental skills that would allow him to excel on problem solving questions which prevented him from being able to achieve a grade above a D.Read More
At A Team Tuition we’ve noticed the portion of our clientele who tend to succeed academically are the students who don’t stop working just because schools out. I know, I can hear the groans and see the eyerolls already, nobody wants to work during their holidays, but the kicker is: a little work makes a LOT of difference. We also noticed that there were quite a few misconceptions about what these students do during the holidays and what benefits you can achieve.Read More
The first and foremost section to tackle in your report is the hypothesis. A hypothesis is an educated guess about the outcome of your experiment based on the independent variables. Your hypothesis should be based off a gap in the research that you have found. It is importance, when writing an EEI to distinguish between your hypothesis and a research question.Read More
