FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Answers to Frequently Asked Questions about James An College tutoring
At James An College we aim to provide all students with the necessary tools that they will need in order to succeed in all aspects of their academic lives. We achieve this goal by providing supportive learning environments, superb resources, personal attention and care as well as frequent encouragement.
James An College is one of the leading coaching colleges in Australia - renowned for the quality of our teachers, resources and commitment to new and creative approaches to education.
Our students consistently score well above average in their academic pursuits. As a result, more parents consistently make James An College their first preference when it comes to their child's education.
Teachers in school have limited time to provide each student the individual support they need. However, the competition in top private and selective schools and universities is intensifying. Students and parents need to evaluate what their expectations are and how it can be achieved. For those aiming for the top, additional help may make the difference between success and failure.
A student’s top priority should be their studies. Students are required to learn a sense of duty and responsibility to themselves to excel in their studies. Initially, James An College requires substantial time commitment, especially in primary school years when the foundations are being set for academic success. The aim is for the knowledge and skills gained at James An College to be used in gradually reducing the time a student spends overall on school homework as well as homework set by us.
In group tuition, students are motivated by competition with other committed students. They can compare their progress with students from other schools and learn not only from the teacher, but also from the questions, answers and comments made by other students in the class.
All students should find the work slightly difficult at first. As our program runs ahead of schools, students may come across concepts that have not been taught in school. This is a normal part of adjusting to the James An College system. As time progresses, students should find the work challenging rather than hard. Students should also find that school work will become easier as new concepts will be introduced before they have learnt it at school.
In order to allow teachers to spend more time on each individual student, class sizes are maintained at 10-15 students per class on average. However, students also need to ask questions so that teachers are aware of any problems.
The earlier good study habits are introduced the better. We have found that students who develop these habits early on go on to succeed in many aspects of their academic career. James An College has 5 terms throughout the year with each term running for 10 weeks. Students can enrol at any time during the year.
Enrolling at James An College is easy! Simply visit your chosen JAC Branch and ask for a free assessment test! The friendly staff will answer any further questions you have regarding our courses while your child is sitting the test.
