Scholarship Examinations

Scholarship examinations need proper preparation if students are to perform at their best and so we have personalised tutoring in Melbourne with specialised teachers.

To this end, there is great value in personal tutoring, whether it be done by parents themselves or by our professional tutors in Melbourne. The aim should be to ensure that the students perform at their best, ie that they do justice to their abilities. Too often lack of preparation for scholarship tests, not lack of intelligence or knowledge, can make the difference between success and failure.

Preparing for scholarship exams is a matter of fine-tuning the individual student, certainly not trying to cram many weeks of Maths or English tutoring or general knowledge into a 2 or 3 week period.

Some students quite simply are never going to win scholarships. The pressure that parents – and sometimes teachers – place on any student preparing for a scholarship exam can result in poor health and loss of sleep, thus giving the student no chance at all.

Remember that scholarship exams call for abilities and skills that cannot be developed by routine learning from text books. Students need to think about what they have learnt and use it to deal with new situations. Then arrive at a solution. This ability must be developed over a period of time.

Preparation for a scholarship exam should commence at least a month before exam day. There is too much to cover satisfactorily in a shorter period.

Tutoring typically covers such areas as:

  • exam technique including the very important skill of time management,
  • problem solving,
  • comprehension, and
  • essay planning and imaginative and descriptive writing.

It is not simply a matter though of developing these abilities. Just as importantly, tutoring must build the student’s confidence in his/her own abilities, and that is never wasted.

Private tutoring in Melbourne that excels in scholarship preparation is a rare and specialised talent. These tutors have the ability to encourage the already bright student to understand – and enjoy – the experience of succeeding in the exam situation.

Over many years, Consolidated has tutored many students in scholarship preparation, and has been delighted – as indeed were the parents and students – with the success rate of those students for whom we organised tutoring. Our specialist tutors have the right experience to help students prepare for scholarship tests.

So, contact Consolidated Coaching Colleges to talk over scholarship exam preparation. Our specialist tutors will be able to build your student’s abilities and confidence so that he or she does their best in the exam. Our tutors understand the techniques and the extremely high standards required. In Melbourne we have specialised maths tutors, teachers expert in English tutoring and also teachers who are experienced for all other subjects common for scholarship exams.

Finally, do not leave it to the last moment to arrange scholarship tutoring – the very best tutors are always those who most quickly become fully booked.

So, if the scholarship tutors we use in your Melbourne suburb are already fully booked, we would rather say we cannot help you than provide you with an inexperienced tutor.
