Selective Entry Schools Course

The Centre’s Managing Director, Cecilia, has developed a 20-week intensive course for Year 8 and Year 9 students who wish to obtain a place in the following Selective Entry Schools:

  • MacRobertson Girls’ High
  • Melbourne High
  • Nossal High; and
  • Suzanne Cory High School

Cecilia has more than 15 years of experience coaching in this specialized area and has undertaken the exam herself, successfully obtaining entrance to the prestigious MacRobertson Girls’ High.

She is joined by a team of carefully selected tutors to provide high quality coaching covering all 6 components of the exam:

  • English Comprehension
  • Mathematics
  • Verbal Reasoning
  • Numerical Reasoning
  • Persuasive Essay Writing; and
  • Creative Essay Writing

The course has also been specifically designed to equip students with:

  • Skills to plan and write essays within the prescribed time of 15 minutes
  • Techniques to solve challenging problems using a step-by-step approach
  • Strategies to answer multiple-choice questions under time constraints

WHY OUR COURSE IS DIFFERENT

What sets The In-Tuition Centre’s course apart from other courses is that the course was developed through the personal experiences of a successful past student. Importantly, the course not only has comprehensive material accumulated over the years, but it incrementally and systematically builds on students’ knowledge.

We do not just provide test and exam papers for students to complete; we are committed to teaching content and laying a solid foundation for students’ long-term learning and development, thereby allowing students to retain, recall and apply principles and concepts beyond textbook questions.

As you will gather from the attached testimonials, feedback received from past students and parents is that The In-Tuition Centre’s course go beyond the Selective Entry Schools examination. Improvement will be witnessed immediately in student’s school performance and results as the course instil effective study habits, time management skills and exam techniques that students will carry with them throughout their education and beyond.

TESTIMONIALS – Year 8 into Year 9

Thanushri Shanmuganathan (Student)

“I enrolled into The Intuition Center Selective Entry Course with one clear goal in mind, which was to obtain entry into The Mac. Robertson Girls' High School. I was prepared to work hard to see myself achieving this goal. Cecilia's course was an extremely valuable resource that led me in the direction of my success. Each lesson was structured well and the work allowed every piece of knowledge to be learned effectively. I found myself retaining information that otherwise would have been easily forgotten. There were plenty of insightful tips that were helpful beyond measure, with regards to the exam itself. Cecilia's teaching was very clear and was delivered in a manner that was easy to understand. My weaknesses were perfected to the best of my ability and by the end of the course, I knew that I was prepared; so much so that when it came to the actual exam, I was relaxed and the whole experience was straightforward. This course went beyond academic learning, enriching my general knowledge greatly. The skills and knowledge that I have acquired will continue to be useful in the future.”

“I came across The In-Tuition Centre, when I was randomly searching on the internet for a place to send my daughter, Thanushri, for select entry preparation. The last centre that we had enrolled her in had not met her learning needs.
 
Cecilia was a huge catalyst in my daughter’s success in gaining entry into MacRobertson GHS. My daughter enrolled into The In-Tuition Centre’s coaching for selective school exam with a clear goal of gaining entry into MacRobertson GHS, her dream school. Cecilia was able to provide valuable resources, strategic coaching and insight into preparing for the selective school exam.
 
As a parent I felt Cecilia was very approachable and had genuine concern over her student’s progress. She was set in helping her students achieve their highest potential. The materials provided by The In-Tuition Centre combined with Cecilia’s knowledgeable coaching and commitment paved a clear path for my daughter to achieve her goals. I was amazed by how my daughter’s confidence and knowledge level grew over a short period of time.
 
I would highly recommend The Intuition Centre. It is a place where every student is given the opportunity to succeed.”

"We enrolled our son, Neel, at the start of year 8 for classes with The In-Tuition Centre towards the Melbourne High entrance exam. It was a very positive experience for him culminating in his success in gaining admission. We found the material was geared toward the expected exam format and also tailored to Neel’s needs. He received specific homework tasks each week and received individual feedback on his progress and performance. Having the weekly classes enabled Neel to remain motivated and focussed towards preparing in the best possible way for the competitive exam. It also benefited his school-work and improved his school exam results. While the coaching resulted in Neel‘s admission into his first choice of campus, he above all enjoyed the experience and learning with other students in a supportive environment. We would strongly recommend learning at The In-Tuition Centre."

"Our daughter joined The In-Tuition Centre in grade 7 (2014) with the aim of preparing and taking up the Selective Entry School Exams (SESE) in grade 8 (2015). She took an immediate liking to the teaching methods as well as the tutors proficiencies. As she progressed through the semesters, we began noticing a marked change in her academic growth. The In-Tuition Centre works towards imparting knowledge that first grounds the students in fundamental concepts and then builds on this foundation.

When Cecilia took over the specialised preparation for SESE exams, the intensity picked up and the course structure reinforced what the students might expect in the real exam. The repeat tests and feedback proved invaluable. Flexibility on part of The In-Tuition Centre to accommodate any lapsed classes by adjusting at one of their other centres is also deeply appreciated. Our daughter has achieved excellent results and has been admitted to Mac Robertsons’ High School. We thank Cecilia and her team for the effort they have put into moulding the students growth and success. If you are considering sending your child for tuition (just as we did in 2014), we would highly recommend The In-Tuition Centre."

"The course for me was a very challenging and engaging way for me to practice and become familiar with the format and types of questions in the Selective Schools Entry Exam. The course helped develop my creative piece writing even further allowing me to fit an engaging story into a 15 minute time frame. Before the course I wouldn't have dreamed of finishing a story within half an hour. The verbal reasoning and numerical reasoning part of the course was very relevant to the test. Many of the questions featured in the course were quite similar to the test and I was able to complete them from prior knowledge. I am very grateful that I could be a part of this course as it was the best way I could have been prepared for the test and allowed me to approach it in a cool, calm and collected manner."

"When we moved from the UK to Melbourne in January 2014, we were clueless about the education system and the selective schools in Victoria. We soon found out about the selective entry exams and about Mac.Rob from various sources. Despite our daughter being a consistent high achiever, she needed to be guided in a very short time about the different components of the exam as well as how to approach it. The personal guidance provided by Cecilia through The In-Tuition classes at that time was of immense help to grasp all aspects of the challenge and to prepare herself well. Cecilia helps her students with her methodical teaching with personalised feedback regarding areas of improvement. This approach enables the students to achieve their best. We would like to thank Cecilia and her team and highly recommend The In-Tuition Centre."

"Near the start of this year, my family moved to Melbourne from England. When I came to know about the selective entry test, I enrolled for the Selective Entry Examination Course run by Cecilia. Although I joined the course only half way through, Cecilia really helped me to excel by giving me regular individual advice on how to work on my skills. I felt that she created the ideal learning environment. Attending this course helped me not only to gain entry to MacRob but also raised the standard of my current school work."

TESTIMONIALS – Year 9 into Year 10

"We got to know Cecilia and The In-Tuition Centre through word of mouth and I'm writing this testimony to acknowledge the great benefit we've had in association with her company.

We enrolled our son for the Selective Entry Melbourne High Yr10 entry program where Cecilia herself took to deliver the course in small group one on one set up. I must admit her educational resources and course material was very impressive. So too was her ability to be a committed teacher, coach , mentor and a guide. Her persistence and sometimes hard but constructive criticism meant that the children were constantly pushed to better themselves.

Her more personalised sessions meant we got a clear picture of our child's strengths and weaknesses which proved invaluable in addressing the problem areas and planning a realistic approach to meeting our goals.

Just last week we received the fantastic news, an offer for Melbourne High. But regardless I would highly recommend Cecilia for not just her knowledge and experience in gaining entry for selective schools but more importantly her ability to instill the skills and habits for lifelong learning - Thank you Cecilia!"

"The first time we heard of The In-Tuition Centre was via a pamphlet in our letterbox. My son was the one who was initially interested and asked us to enrol him, as he was in the process of preparing for his Year 9 selective Entry exams. We were skeptical as the course was only for 6 months, however we decided to give it a go as my son was interested. We enrolled him in the Year 9 Selective Entry program. Straight away we were very impressed with the way Cecilia handled the class and the interaction she had with the students. The material provided was very comprehensive.

Consequently after 3 weeks we decided to also enrol our daughter into the Year 10 Selective Entry class.

Both the courses were intense but the material was thorough. Both of them had weekly English, Maths and Writing homework to do. I found that the work provided kept them busy and challenged. All of their writing tasks were corrected weekly and feedback was given back each week. I could see the improvement with their school tasks over the time they were undertaking their respective courses. If they missed a lesson due to school commitments we were able to catch up with Cecilia’s recorded lessons. At the end of the course the revision and trial exams were also very comprehensive and detailed.

My son got into Melbourne High School Year 9 Entry and daughter got into Mac.Rob Year 10 Entry. We are so thrilled and thankful that we found Cecilia and The In-Tuition Centre. We will definitely be using The In-Tuition Centre for both the kids during their VCE years."

"If you are looking for a tutoring centre to prepare your children for Selective Entry Schools Examination, I would definitely recommend The In-Tuition Centre as my son attended the course for Year 10 entry in 2016 and I am pleased to announce he has just been accepted into Suzanne Cory High School!

I can honestly say that sending my son to The In-Tuition Centre was the best decision I have ever made in respect to my son’s education. Under the guidance of Cecilia and the well-developed 20 weeks program, my son was not only well prepared for the Suzanne Cory School entrance exam this year but has achieved outstanding results in his current school semester subjects, as with the help of extensive 20 weeks program, his general knowledge has grown stronger as well as he has learned time management skills. He’s so thrilled to have been accepted!

We’d like to thank Cecilia for her assistance, excellent teaching methods and hard work in helping my son achieve this wonderful result! Cecilia and all the tutors that assisted my son were fabulous! I know that my son will take this experience and knowledge with him throughout his future opportunities."
