Year 9 Science

Our Year 9 Science tutoring program starts in Term 1 and ends in Term 4 each year. The program covers all syllabus outcomes and requirements of the NESA Stage 5 syllabus, and leads into our Year 10 Science program.

Year 9 Science Course Overview

The Year 9 Science tutoring program will exceed the outcomes and standards required by the stage 5 syllabus, with the long term goal of preparing students for taking on high scaling science subjects like Chemistry, Physics and Biology in years 11 and 12. To this end, the program will go into greater depth in focus areas that are relevant to senior level science subjects.

This course is ideal for:

  • Students who are currently in Year 9 wanting to build a strong base in Science

2 hour weekly lessons + 1 hour weekly Workshop Tutorial


Tutoring course materials (concept explanations, summaries, study notes, example questions, worked solutions and exam-style homework) are provided each week in the form of a theory and homework booklet
