May 13: COVID-19 Update 

We're cautiously optimistic

As the situation in relation to COVID-19 continues to slowly improve we are actively planning on taking steps to gradually reintroduce (in phases) face-to-face tuition.

As an initial step, we are tentatively planning to reintroduce face-to-face extra tutorials and sitting examinations. This would be on a completely voluntary basis and commence in early June.

While this is a sign of positive progress, there is no immediate change to our approach. All tuition continues online, as scheduled. Our decision to continue online are guided by the safety and well-being of all staff, parents and students.

Enhanced cleaning and social distancing measures have already been implemented among staff onsite. These safeguards will become the new norm for the foreseeable future for all individuals coming to Intuition. We’ll continue to keep you informed ahead of any changes.

Thank you for your ongoing support and understanding.

March 31: April Holidays and Term 2

With the ongoing need to manage the outbreak of COVID-19, we expect for Term 2 to continue completely online. 

School Holidays

Over the upcoming school holidays, we will close from the 6th - 26th of April. However, Ask a Tutor and the online marking of homework/exams will still run throughout. In addition, you have access to our expanding online video library, the weekly resources and extra materials. 

Term 2

In order to maintain the safety and well being of our staff we will be shifting away from live tutorials. Instead, we will be introducing live Q&A sessions for homeworks and topics. In the coming days, we will call you to organise your new permanent timetable consisting of one live class and one live Q&A session.

Complementary Revision Course

In addition to all the live components outlined below, current students who maintain their enrolment will be provided with a complimentary enrolment into both the July and October Comprehensive Revision Courses. With all the disruptions, we feel our students will need extra help, these revisions courses together represent 24 hours of extra tuition.

Online Learning

All Intuition students will have access to the following in the my-i online learning suite:

  • Live Classes: the aim is to replicate the face-to-face experience. With the aid of our online workbooks, the teacher and class tutor go through the lesson; students can ask questions through the class tutor on the live stream
  • Online marking of homework: We will mark homework & exams online. Students will be provided with information and comments on how they can improve; marks are recorded.
  • Live Q&A on Homeworks: The live Q&A’s run for 2 hours and go through the common homework issues, as well as a general Q&A’s on the respective topic. As part of this we will separate students into ‘breakout rooms’, to ensure students with similar questions can get the help they require.
  • Unlimited Access to Ask a Tutor: Students can ask both Intuition and school related questions at any time.
  • Videos on Topics: Short videos to help students consolidate knowledge; this library is expanding and more will be added throughout the coming weeks.
  • Access to Resources: We have enabled access to our resources through my-i. This will ensure students have access to everything they need to continue learning through videos.      

For more information on these visit our Online Learning page. As mentioned, we'll be in contact shortly in regards to timetables. Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.

March 25: Update to Online Learning

Our first online classes started this week and the feedback has been very positive! We will improve and make them even better over time.

We are excited to introduce two new features to our online learning suite in my-i Online Marking and Live tutorials. This is in addition to Ask a Tutor, Online Videos and our Live Classes (for more information click here).

  • Online Marking: Students will be able to upload homework and exams for marking. Students can either scan or take pictures (as one single file please) and upload them into my-i. We’ll then be able to mark them and re-upload the marked work. For exams, as always, you will also have access to the detailed marking guidelines.
  • Live Tutorials: Students will gain access to a 45-minute session with a tutor to go through their work. It’s essential to prepare for your tutorials and have a set of questions ready. Tutors will help with working, guide you to the answers and help consolidate theory. These spaces will be limited and students need to call to book these. In order to take part in these tutorials you will need to agree to share audio and/or video with Intuition (note all tutors will be at our offices in Epping).

Remember, the quickest way to get assistance is via Ask a Tutor. We're here to support you with school and Intuition work.

If the lockdown is expanded, we will be unable to run tutorials as described above. In this situation, we will implement another feature we have ready to ensure students are still able to correct their homeworks and exams.

With the news from NESA that the HSC will run this year, the need for continuity of learning is vital to ensuring the success of students in this challenging time. Intuition is committed to providing you with ongoing support for your learning during this time. Remember you can keep updated with information on what Intuition is doing at this site.

Finally, our office hours have changed during this time. They are 2pm-8pm on weekdays and 9am-6pm on weekends, again these are subject to change. Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.

March 23: Online Classes Commence

From today Intuition will be ONLINE only. Our first live classes start today, all students should be attending them as they would any normal class. Later this week, we’ll be launching our first live tutorials and enabling the submission of homework online.

As schools transition to online rest assured Intuition is ALREADY ONLINE and ready to provide support for all students.

We aim to provide continuity of education for all students, throughout the remainder of this term and will continue this as long as required. The NESA board will be meeting on Tuesday to provide more information about the HSC and the nature of the HSC this year. We will update you as soon as we find out.

We look forward to sending more information about our online tutorials and online marking in the coming days.

March 21: FAQs & Online Learning

As previously mentioned all face-to-face tutoring will be halted from Monday. Students have begun receiving their resource packs and have been booked into their online live classes. We will continue contacting all students over the weekend.

For more information on our online offerings please visit our Online Learning page. If you have more questions please visit our FAQs or contact us.

Finally we'd like to thank all our staff, students and parents during this time. We will continue to support all our students online through their assessments and as long as required. We're committed to ensuring students are still learning and improving during this difficult time.
