One-on-one tutoring is available face-to-face at our tutoring centre in Berkeley Vale, as well as online.
We offer private tuition in most academic subjects, including Mathematics, English, Science, HSIE, and PDHPE for primary school, high school, HSC, TAFE, university students, and adults, as well as other speciality subjects (see our subject list below). Private tutoring is a one-on-one appointment with an experienced tutor who specialises in the subject, and are tailored to suit the needs and abilities of the student.
Our tutors are highly experienced and university-educated. Their goal is to help you not only succeed in your course or studies, but also to be your academic mentor. Your tutor will endeavour to get to know you, your academic strengths and gaps, your needs and goals, and will help you to achieve them. As tutoring sessions are one-on-one, they are tailored to each student’s level and learning pace.
Academic Subjects Covered at Apex Tutoring
We cover all stages of K-10 Mathematics. We follow the New South Wales syllabus, but if a student is behind or ahead we can adjust to meet them at their level. Our approach to mathematics tutoring is to teach for understanding and build problem solving skills, however for some students with learning difficulties we can work to find approaches and strategies to help them compensate.
We cover all stages of K-10 English. We follow the New South Wales Syllabus, but we can adjust to meet the needs of students who are behind or ahead in their English studies.

Early Primary Literacy and Numeracy
Tutoring for students in early primary school (K-2) is performed by our most experienced tutors who are also either primary school teachers or are near completion of a primary teaching degree. This is because of the importance of early primary education in setting a foundation for future learning. These tutors can work on reading and writing skills, as well as early numeracy skills, as needed.

Opportunity Class, Selective School, and Scholarship Test Preparation
Tutoring in preparation for opportunity class, selective school, or scholarship testing is performed by our tutors who are experienced in working with advanced students and are familiar with the tests. Students will work through practice tests so that they are familiarised with the format, start learning problem solving strategies, and so that their strengths and weaknesses can be identified. The tutor will also focus on helping the student to improve in areas to be tested on.
NAPLAN, ICAS, RoSA, and Minimum Standards Test Preparation
Although high performance on the NAPLAN or ICAS is not crucial to a student’s success, performing to the best of their abilities can boost their confidence and give them a sense of pride. Having a tutor work with them to prepare can also be beneficial to students who experience anxiety in regards to tests. Some students may need help to prepare for their RoSA or Minimum Standards test in order to achieve their goals after Year 10, and our tutors can provide them with the revision, practice, and support that they need.
