I am trialling an online homework help service through the website, aiming at bridging the gap for students who may need assistance with their school work in between tutorial lessons. There are two services available: Homework Live Chat and Study Forum.
With Homework Live Chat, students can text chat to the tutor live when available. Students may ask any question or post problems on any topic from their school or university mathematics and science subjects. If the tutor is not available a student can post a question and the tutor will reply with an answer, usually within 12 hours.
The Homework Study Forum allows students to post mathematics and science questions and problems and the tutor will reply with solutions, hints, etc. within a 24 hour time frame. To access the study forum, students will need to register with a user-name or email and their own password.
To access the Homework Live Chat or Study Forum students go to www.sciencetuition.com.au/homework-help.html and enter a site password that they will receive upon registration of the service. From there students go to the Study Forum link or Homework Chat link.
Students may trial the homework help service for a month for no fee. If a student wishes to continue the service a monthly subscription fee will apply. The fee for the Homework Study Forum is $75 / month and $125 / month for Homework Chat.
For further details or to trial the service please email Scott.
Tuition will be available over most of the summer holiday period. The centre however, will be shut for the Christmas/New Years period from 24th December to 1st January. The office reopens on Monday, January 2nd.
Year 10 and 11 students who are currently doing 'rollover' into year 12 would find it beneficial to continue studying for their maths and science subjects to gain a head-start for the 2017 academic year. For other students who may have struggled in mathematics, physics or chemistry during the school year, the summer break is a good time to resolve difficulties.
For current year 10 students, transitioning into year 11 is quite a big jump and often students struggle with the increased level of homework and subject difficulty. Getting an early start on the more difficult technical subjects can be very beneficial for students to ease their way into upper high school.
If you wish to organise tutoring for the summer holidays please email Scott or phone the office. Various tutorial sessions are available during normal office hours in the summer break.
Students wishing to purchase publications produced or sold by Perth Academy of Science may do so at our new separate publications website at www.mpcbooks.com.au. Publications include school books and educational science aides such as Techniques in Differentiation, Periodic Table of the Elements Reference Card and Periodic Table Mouse Mat.
Formal schooling has begun for the year and the tutorial workshops are now available in the evenings during school term. New students requiring further information regarding our tuition service please email or call Scott. Details on contact page.
The tuition centre will be closed for the Christmas / New Years period from Monday 21st December until 3rd January. Lessons will resume on Monday 4th January.
Wishing all students and parents a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year.
