HSC Chemistry tutoring - Year 12

HSC Chemistry tutoring at Dux College covers all 4 core modules Equilibrium and Acid Reactions, Acid/base Reactions, Organic Chemistry and Applying Chemical Ideas. Our program also heavily focuses on assessment technique, teaching our students how to structure assessment responses for all types of questions, as well as covering first-hand investigations. Our HSC Chemistry tutoring helps students increase exam marks and ranks at school.

HSC Chemistry Course Overview

Our HSC Chemistry tutoring program starts with the beginning of the year 12 HSC Chemistry syllabus and over the course of four terms, will comprehensively cover all syllabus dot-points and outcomes of the year 12 HSC Chemistry syllabus.

First-hand Investigations

Did you know all HSC Chemistry students will eventually have at least one practical skills assessment that counts anywhere from 15% to 30% toward their total HSC internal assessment? Our year 12 Chemistry tutoring program not only covers the theoretical content of the HSC Chemistry Syllabus, but also covers all practical skills outcomes and first-hand investigation sections.

We fully prepare our Chemistry students for their year 12 practical exams, including Galvanic Cell construction, titration and back-titration, and anion / cation testing.

Depth Study – extra help

Our HSC Chemistry course will cover all syllabus content and outcomes, preparing students for all exams. While this is enough for most students, some students want extra help with their Depth Study, which is a once-a-year large assessment task that counts for up to 40% of the overall mark.

For enrolled students, we can arrange a one on one tutor to assist with a depth study, from planning, designing the first-hand investigation, and editing the assignment before submitting. Once you receive your assessment notification, please email us for a quote for depth study assistance.
