The Intuition weekly courses are based on a 3 step cycle. These 3 steps work together in conjunction to ensure students obtain the best outcomes.
The 3 Steps
1. Theory Class
An interactive class where we go through theory and questions.
Practise questions that are ALL marked to highest standards.
A more personalised learning approach where students learn from their mistakes and build on their knowledge.
At Intuition, we are huge advocates of classroom interaction and encourage all of our students to actively participate in topical discussions by asking and answering questions.
We keep our classes small – the average number of students per theory class is 12 and the maximum is 16 – so that no student goes unnoticed.
We steer clear from rote learning as much as possible, rather exposing our students to the background/derivation behind each concept and explaining them in a way which can easily be understood.
* Class lengths are three hours for Mathematics Extension 2 and two hours for Preliminary Mathematics and Year 10 Mathematics.
- 12 - 16 students per class
- 2.5 hours*
- Start basic fundamentals
- Work to complex principles
- Covers the respective NESA syllabus
- Lesson booklet written in accordance NESA syllabus
Our lesson booklets
Each student receives a lesson booklet written in accordance with the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) syllabus to ensure that every syllabus requirement is covered.
These booklets become the student’s personalised notes and provide a comprehensive basis for future revision.
Homework is a vital step in our learning cycle as it forces students to test their understanding of the material learnt during theory classes. It’s also a way for us to monitor all of our students and assess whether they need further assistance.
All Intuition homework questions are of a similar style and degree of difficulty to the questions students will encounter in their school assessments and HSC examinations. We even have a ‘challenge’ section so that our students can see what the really hard questions look like – and learn how to answer them.
- Strict zero mistakes policy
- Additional 'challenge questions'
- Marked by professional markers
- Consistent with school assessments and HSC examinations
Tutorials, the final part of the three-step weekly cycle, are an opportunity for students to correct their homework mistakes so that they can, as we like to say, ‘get them down to zero’.
It’s a discipline which, in addition to highlighting conceptual errors, forces students to:
- Identify and avoid common mistakes
- Understand how to answer challenging questions
Students are given two weeks from the time they receive their marked homework to correct all their mistakes. Like our theory classes, we deliberately keep our tutorials small. The average number of students per tutorial is 3 and the maximum is 4.
Tutorials are also a time when students can bring in any additional questions they may have, particularly if they are struggling with school homework. In fact, we encourage students to book extra tutorials during school assessment periods so that they can always stay on top of their work.
- 3 - 4 students per tutorial
- 1.5 hours
- Access to professional tutors
- Free additional tutorials
