Meet Your Talent 100 Mentor: Bill Kolios

Meet Your Talent 100 Mentor: Bill Kolios

Here at Talent we’ve amassed a variety of Mentors which have taught and encouraged our students throughout the years – guiding them through high school and the HSC.

We call our teachers and tutors ‘Mentors’ because they deliver more than simply theory. Talent 100 Mentors are all outstanding achievers, but it’s their passion for teaching and mentoring which matters most. Whilst an exceptional academic record is a must, our Mentors are also chosen for their ability to work with students of all levels and provide the pastoral guidance for future success.

Not only do we want to give thanks to these Mentors who have enriched the lives of many at Talent, but want to share their unique personalities and passions while also inspiring the next generation of high school students to strive for their best.

Bill’s Top 5 Study Tips:

Set up a study space. It is really important to have a tidy, comfortable and distraction-free space that is purely for studying.

Manage your time. Come up with to-do lists and set specific goals within specific time frames.

Discover your preferred way of learning. We are all different and learn in different ways. Find out the best way that works for you.

Don’t be afraid to ask for help. Talk to your teachers, friends and fellow students if you’re stuck on something.

Be organised! Have your notes, books and all other learning material organised and create your own notes and flash cards.
