About the College Academy
The College Academy was established in 2004 to assist students to reach for their academic goals. Since this time it has grown in size and caters for Primary and Secondary students requiring individual assistance.
What we offer
We offer goal directed assistance that is based on students current learning needs and task requirements. Parents are provided with a choice in terms of the level of tutor that they request. Secondary teacher tutors focus on their area of expertise and provide subject specific support while student tutors, who are selected based on their high academic achievement in a subject or range of subjects, are able to offer more broad based support depending on the subjects they completed in their senior years. Additionally Qualified tutors, including EAL tutors, have completed tertiary education in a relevant field but are not trained teachers. Primary teachers generally specialise in upper or lower primary and are assigned students accordingly.
Support is offered in the following areas:
- Developing better understanding of subject content
- Assistance with assignment management and completion
- Study skills and time management
- Improving English Language skills
- Development of critical thinking and reasoning skills which are needed to attain higher achievement levels
- Assistance with reading development
- Development of foundational skills in literacy and numeracy
- Homework support
All our tutors undergo training and are able to access their students teachers, through the Academy, to offer more targeted support.

Diane Tucker is a Teacher Tutor at the Academy, when we asked Diane her thoughts on tutoring her reply was:
“I have been tutoring English at the Academy for many years and have found it a most rewarding and enriching experience.
I feel that the role of a tutor is to assist the students to fully understand the task at hand and to help facilitate the process of producing an assignment that meets the expected criteria. The outcomes that students achieve as a result of tutoring are largely dependent on their attitude to the tutoring sessions and on their willingness to put in the effort required.
It is extremely important to build a rapport with the students, as they will certainly work harder if they know that you care about them and are committed to helping them achieve their goals.
It has been my privilege over the years to work with so many dedicated and enthusiastic students and the only downside is that, when they reach the end of Year 12, it brings our tutoring sessions to a close.”
