Our Values

Tutoring At Arrendell Secondary Education Centre our focus is on helping the student as a whole person to develop the skills, insights and values which will promote their academic excellence as well as their best possible contribution to their community and family.

Our strategy is to develop children’s confidence, to build up their areas of strength and to help them identify and improve their areas of weakness. We also teach skills which underpin academic achievement such as study skills, essay writing and exam techniques.

We work closely with parents advising them how best to support their child’s individual learning requirements and their work at school.

Our aim is to support the student within the school and to develop their independent learning skills. In this context, it is important to point out that we encourage respect for teachers at school. We focus on developing healthy, independent attitudes and habits and also a cooperative approach to learning and achievement.

Our teaching community includes a variety of specialist teachers and this is reflected in the range of students who seek help at Arrendell.

During the July and October school holidays, we run workshops, many of which are specifically geared towards helping students prepare for their HSC exams and their school trial HSC. These are taught by experienced senior teachers who are mostly HSC markers.
