What is NAPLAN?
NAPLAN is a set of four or five standardised tests depending on your child’s year level that are taken by students in years 3, 5, 7, and 9. NAPLAN tests cover writing, spelling, grammar, reading, and numeracy skills. NAPLAN is taken In the second week of March, your child will sit these tests across multiple days to make it as fair and accessible as possible.
Set your Child up for NAPLAN Success
It is a common NAPLAN myth that the test is designed to assess your child’s intelligence and it being a high-stakes test. This is not true. The tests are actually designed to provide parents and schools with a better understanding of how students are performing.
Despite this, there can be a lot of pressure on students to perform well on their NAPLAN, and standardised testing can be stressful for many students. Our NAPLAN tutoring focuses on giving your child the opportunity to achieve their best results and feel good after taking the tests!
Our tutors will help your child to overcome stress and give them the confidence that they can achieve their goals by ensuring that they're fully equipped with the knowledge and skills necessary for them to approach their NAPLAN tests.
In order for your child to best prepare for exams there are a variety of exam strategies that can be used. Our tutors will teach those strategies that focus on both effort and application and allow your child to feel prepared for their NAPLAN exams.
Leveraging Learning Languages
All of our Academic Personal Trainers are specifically trained to identify a student’s learning language and tailor sessions to set them them up for greater success and understanding when it comes to the areas that are assessed!

... What Our Clients Have To Say ...
Lydia has been a wonderful tutor for Felix. She has a great manner and is excellent at teaching content across a number of subjects. She has also been a supportive coach and mentor to Felix, helping with exam techniques and building confidence. She always brings positivity, encouragement and good humour. We feel really lucky to have had her support and know she has made an enormous difference to how years 11 and 12 have felt and the results that he has achieved.
Their unique approach to helping students feel confident in their preparation for exams, assessments and increasing their literacy and numeracy skills, sets them up for success, no matter their hesitations. It is so important, especially within this generation, to find ways to keep students engaged in the learning process.
“I think I was so successful because my study routine and how I approached maths completely changed. I used to have a bad mindset and hated the subject, now I really try my best!”
Jess went from an E to B in Maths in just 8 weeks!
The word “Proud” doesn’t even come close to expressing how we felt last night at our daughter’s Awards Ceremony. The studying structure and skills she has developed since starting with the program has been invaluable.
“I am very impressed with our tutor, Elaine, and her approach, and we are grateful for her detailed feedback. I actually mentioned to my husband that this is more concrete and helpful feedback than we have ever received from his teachers. I definitely recognise my son in her comments and think that her observations were spot on. In particular, that he struggles with inferences and that his problem-solving approach could be simplified.
My son worked really well with her and I think that he can learn a lot from Elaine! We are looking forward to the next session”
