English Unit 3 and 4 - The 'Advantage 10+' Classes - Intensive Weekly Tutorials

Students will be given a thorough revision of all Units 3 and 4 Areas of Study including: Reading and creating texts; and Analysing argument; Reading and comparing texts; and Presenting argument. TSSM will cover the entire year 12 English Text Lists. Students will be able to select two texts from Text List 1 and two texts from Text List 2 to study in detail during the course.

Each weekly tutorial class addresses the finer details of the VCAA Study Design. This ensures that students receive the most in depth examination preparation possible. Weekly sessions run for 3 hours and will thoroughly revise all examinable Areas of Study in Unit 3 and 4 English. 

Each week our expert teachers will encourage students to ask questions to clarify any area that require more attention.  Our teachers will systematically and comprehensively review the weekly content, examination style questions and any School-assessed Coursework that the students need to go over.
