Course Goals

Improve Academic Performance

Every student has different needs, so we offer personalised tutoring for students to tackle their weaknesses and reach their academic goals. Our tutors provide students with guidance, examples and individual feedback to develop their ability to craft quality responses and achieve greater results.

Build Confidence and Resilience

The Year 8 English course is designed to give students all the practice and support they need to boost their confidence in their own ability. We wholeheartedly encourage them to experiment with new ideas, ask questions and seek feedback to not only achieve academic success, but also grow as a life-long learner.

Appreciate the Applications of English

Through engaging lessons which encourage students to participate and contribute, we debunk the idea that "English is boring" and lead them to enjoy what they are learning. Our mentors help students draw connections with ideas and texts to show them how English can be used in personal, social and learning contexts.

Reviews

I have tried other tutoring centers and YGA has been the only one that really understands me on a personal level. The tutors went above and beyond and took time off their own schedule outside of class to chat with me when I was worried about my marks and this really helped with my stress.
Dominic Nitsos
Penrith Christian College
I always look forward to coming here after a long day of school. I always feel welcomed and never feel judged for asking any questions or help with my assignments or assessments. Being able to have comfortable friendly chats and still learn with my peers and tutors is a great feeling so i recommend for everyone to try them out!
Dylan D'Costa

The communal environment has enhanced the way in which learning takes place and made it more enjoyable to learn from there. I highly recommend this place for everyone who’s not only looking to excel in their studies, but also be part of a community that makes learning a truly positive and fulfilling experience.
