Meet Your Talent 100 Mentor: Matthew Tran

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.

Matthew’s Top 5 Study Tips:

Stagger your revision, don’t start the night before!

Find what works for you and study like that! Whether it’s flash cards of past papers.

Find the time your body works best to study and do most of your study then!

Take breaks in your study. I like to use the pomodoro timer to study in hour blocks with a 10 minute break.

Study and life balance is important. Make sure to do the things you love even whilst cramming.

Fun fact: 

I love to cook!
