Now you have finished the HSC, what is your number 1 tip for students? 

My number one study tip is a combination of all the advice and wisdom that I was given throughout Year 12. It consists of 3D’s:

  • The first D is to Dream. I feel it is important to have something that you are working towards, because it will keep you motivated.
  • The second D is Discipline, as it requires a lot of self-accountability in order to keep working hard consistently throughout the year.
  • The third is Dedication, as the HSC is not only an academic journey, but also an emotional one, which requires a lot of commitment in order to achieve your goals.

What did you gain out of tutoring and how would you describe your experience at Talent?

By attending Talent, I was aiming to refine my exam skills, whether it’s learning how to approach answering short answer questions, or learning the most efficient method to solve maths questions, which the mentors were able to help with. The mentors were very good at providing these little tips and tricks, which end up making a big difference in maximising marks.

Talent-100 offers a great learning environment, which fosters productivity and a love for learning. What I feel differentiates Talent from other tutoring centres is the relationships that students build with the mentors, who are very helpful and supportive. 

The material provided by Talent was useful, as it was nice to have a book full of the term’s resources, and it was a good resource in the lead up to exams. I have taken a few tutorials at Talent, and I found they were helpful in providing individualised attention and learning suited to your personal needs, and the holiday programmes were useful as well, such as the acceleration and fast-forward programmes, as I found that learning the content in the holidays allowed me to focus on refining my understanding of the concepts during the term.

Who was your mentor and how did they help you?

I admire the whole mentoring culture at Talent, as I found that this was a very effective teaching style, as not only were they very helpful in providing academic support, but also being there as a support system throughout the whole HSC journey. 

I took English, Economics and Maths Ext so I had a range of mentors. I did have a few younger mentors, and I found they were very approachable and friendly. Since they have recently gone through the HSC themselves as well, they were able to help us overcome the hurdles that a student faces. I also found they were very inspiring in helping us understand and envision a life beyond the HSC as well, and providing guidance for the future.

My favourite class at Talent was Economics, as I enjoy the subject overall. I found that at Talent I was able to understand and consolidate the foundational skills needed to excel in Economics, and gain lots of exam practice and insight into the rationale behind how to approach multiple choice questions or how to scaffold essays. This helped me build confidence in the subject.

What are you planning to study in the future? 

​​In the future, I am very excited and passionate about entering into the business world, particularly Finance, as there are still very few women comparative to the male-dominated industry that Finance is. I would like to do my part in breaking the glass ceiling of women in Business.

How would you describe your Talent experience in a few words?

​​If I could describe Talent-100 in one word, it would be: Inspiring.
