GIVE YOUR CHILD THE ACADEMIC ADVANTAGE TO COMPETE IN TODAY’S WORLD
Subjects offered at K12 Academy
K12 offers the following subjects based on the NSW BOSTES curriculum:
- Science and Technology
- History and Geography
In addition to the above, we also arrange for specialist tutors to meet the needs of your child in other subjects should the need arise. We also offer English Language support for migrants, based on guidelines provided by the NSW Board of Studies BOSTES.
The early years of learning is when curiosity is very high and we kick start the learning journey. At this age, we strive to develop the child's interests in the world around them and nurture the spirit to explore as much as possible. Within this fun, discovery-based environment, we help young children learn reading, writing and numeracy skills.
We offer some group activities for kids at this age to give them the opportunity to develop their social skills by learning to co-operate with other children and learn collaboratively.
Children often require personal attention at various stage of their learning curve. Our teaching staff will make sure we identify any learning gaps through various diagnostic methods and address these before they become barriers to future learning.
At this stage the child's ability to learn has grown but due to different levels of early exposure kids need a spotlight to identify their interests and problem areas. We develop a trusting relationship with children to enhance their sense of wonder and to provide support for any particular learning needs
Some kids do not feel comfortable in group activities and think that they will be left behind if they are not able to cope with classroom activities. Our teachers are patient and approachable and will help build confidence with a focused and unbiased attitude.
Some children have difficulty focusing in a group environment or they may get bored or lose concentration or they may not have the confidence to ask questions and give responses when there are others around. In these situations individual personalised lessons are a much better choice in order to ensure maximum benefits for the child.
One on one classes
At this stage most kids are able to communicate their needs but because the level of skills required has increased a child may need personal attention to find out their learning gaps. With one to one tutoring it is easier to identify and tackle the issues. Periodic assessments will be part of the teaching methodology to gauge the students level of understanding of a concept or topic.
K12 believes in a productive environment for learning and to extend the child we promote group research activities. These classes help children discover their potential and are also cost-effective for parents. Such classes are also very useful because they preparation the child for collaborative learning. We arrange assessment and group activities to extend understanding and help children grow into confident and knowledgeable individuals.
If parents are struggling to provide a helping hand and a child needs help to complete their homework our teachers are there for you. We can offer occasional assistance as well as regular classes. Our approach is not to spoon-feed and provide answers but to help develop the ability to finish their own work with minimum assistance. Come and visit us or call to discuss how we can help your child and which arrangement will suit you?
One on one classes
Every child is a different individual, with their own needs, difficulties and talents. We like to talk to the parents and assess their children before creating a personalised lesson plan to ensure the best results.
At K12 we are also parents. We understand your concerns and your child’s needs. This is why we like to maintain regular communication and collaboration with you.
High school is exciting but now there are multiple subjects and higher difficulty levels which can be quite overwhelming. The change in school teaching arrangement from primary school to high school is very different. K12 Homework Assistance will definitely help your child keep up with the increased skill and time management requirements that high school demands.
Mathematics is challenging for most students and some may want to aim for their best results. We cover all the subjects defined in the NSW HSC syllabus. Students may choose particular topics from whichever subjects they are studying e.g. Algebra or Calculus or they may enrol in classes for the full subject i.e. General Mathematics, Mathematics, Extension 1 and Extension 2. Practice and collaborative study is essential at this stage.
English is challenging to many students and for those doing Extension English 1 and 2 it is helpful to have a tutor to guide your child through the assessment requirements. We follow the NSW HSC syllabus.Those who are doing English as a Second Language or Fundamental of English will also receive support in listening and speaking.
Science & Technology Classes
We offer Physics, Chemistry and Information Processes and Technology as well as Software Design and Development classes and also assistance with project assignments at the centre. Our technology lessons are enhanced by tutors with industry experiences.
