HSC English Advanced tutoring - Year 12

HSC English Advanced tutoring at Dux College covers the new HSC English syllabus, including Text and Human Experiences, Textual Conversations, Critical Study of Literature, and The Craft of Writing. Students receive practical and actionable advice on how to craft their essays suited to the module and rubric requirements in order to get a band 6 result. Our English tutoring program is tailored to your specific prescribed texts studied at school. We do not mix students doing different prescribed texts into the same class.

This course is a continuation of our Year 11 English Advanced tutoring program.

Year 12 English Tutoring Course Overview

Our HSC English tutoring program equips students with the analysis and writing skills needed to achieve a band 6 in HSC English Advanced. Focus areas include:

  • Text-specific analysis centered around the rubric (each text has important particular analyses that HSC markers look for in awarding marks)
  • Proper essay structure – specific to each module
  • Speech writing, creative writing and other formats commonly featured in HSC English exams

Each module is covered over an entire term, from the very beginning (no assumed knowledge) to the point where students are ready for the Paper 2 essay question (HSC ready). We run classes for multiple texts each term and many of our students choose to study more than one text in parallel per term.

This course is ideal for:

  • Students who are intending to or are doing HSC English Advanced
  • HSC English students wanting a strong foundation and improve understanding of their prescribed texts
  • Master their writing skills specific to each English Module

Topics Scheduled

Throughout each term, we will be running classes for multiple texts from multiple modules – check our timetable for classes running for the current term. If you have a specific text you need covered, it’s a good idea to complete the online contact form to express your interest before the end of the current term, so we may offer your text in the following term. If you need specific help in a module not listed in addition to following our year 12 English tutoring program, we may be able to organise some supplementary English 1 on 1 tutoring assistance for enrolled students.

Below is a representation of the modules we run in a particular term, but specifics each year depend on student preferences.

Substitution for 1 on 1: a small number of texts are not commonly chosen by NSW schools and as a result, we may not be able to run classes for these texts. Instead of leaving you in a lurch, we may provide 1 hour weekly one on one in these situations to replace the usual classes.
