Our weekly courses are based on a 3 step cycle. These steps work in conjunction to ensure students receive a holistic service and obtain successful outcomes.

Starting in Term 4, 2020 and continuing on into 2021 we have introduced an online only alternative: Intuition Remote Learning (IRL). Follows the same schedule and 3 step cycle to our weekly courses but is delivered live online.

The 3 Steps

1. Theory Class

  • 2.5 hours every week*
  • Lesson booklets are provided in every class & are directly in line with NESA
  • An interactive class, teaching theory and carefully selected questions
  • Flexibility of multiple times to pick from or to temporarily reschedule

2. Homework

  • Every theory lesson comes with an accompanying homework.
  • Students are given 1 week to complete and submit for marking
  • Homework consists of Normal (compulsory) and Challenge (optional) questions 
  • Normal questions are also compulsory to correct to zero mistakes, as these are commonly assessed/examined  

3. Tutorial

  • 1.5 hours every week 
  • A more personalised learning approach where the tutor guides students to correcting their Homework mistakes.
  • Our strict Zero mistake policy applies to all Normal questions & ensures students correct the typically assessed questions by booking extra tutorials or submitting for re-marking
  • In addition to the permanent weekly tute, extra (complementary) tutes are booked for schoolwork  

Theory Classes

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.

  • 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.

Each class

  • 12 - 16 students per class
  • 2.5 hours*
  • Start from basic fundamentals
  • Work to complex principles
  • Covers the respective NESA syllabus
  • Lesson booklet written in accordance with NESA syllabus

Lesson booklets

Each week students receive 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.

Homeworks

Homework is a vital step in our learning cycle as it forces students to test their understanding of the material learnt during theory class. It’s also a way for us to monitor all of our students and assess whether they need further assistance.

All 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 believe that these typical questions CANNOT be left unresolved and all mistakes MUST be corrected down to zero mistakes. 

  • Each homework has an optional ‘challenge’ section so that our students can see what the really hard questions look like – and learn how to answer them.

Each homework:

  • Consists of typically assessed questions
  • Marked by professional markers weekly
  • Strict zero mistakes policy
  • Additional 'challenge questions'
  • Consistent with school assessments and HSC examinations

Tutorials

Tutorials, are the critical final part of our 3-step cycle. 

In order to get help with the and correct the mistakes made in the homeworks all students attend a weekly tutorial. 

In addition to highlighting conceptual errors, forces students to:

  • Identify and avoid common mistakes
  • Understand how to answer challenging questions

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 particularly during school assessment periods so that they can always stay on top of their work.

Each tutorial:

  • 3 - 4 students per tutorial
  • 1.5 hours
  • Access to professional tutors
  • "zero mistakes policy"
  • Outstanding mistakes - book extra tutorials
  • Extra tutes are complementary (Extra Tutes are limited for Intu Remote Learning)
  • Schoolwork assistance - book extra tutorials
