Realising dreams… 2017 and beyond! :)
Yes, we tutor. But more than tutoring or tuition, we can accelerate learning to each students own potential!
We have NO year level barriers to learning.
We teach better than an excellent school!
Our students are going places! We’re working towards their future career, lifestyle, choices, success and satisfaction.
Catch up! >> Keep up! >> Get ahead!
ELC students are enthusiastic to learn to the maximum of their ability. There are no year-level boundaries to limit learning, and no waiting for the rest of the class. Extended learning in their formative years smooths their path through high school and beyond.
Self-reliant and Confident Students
ELC students take learning into their own hands and take charge of their own future direction. More than simply content, we give students purpose, skills, guidance and support to reduce dependence on teachers.
Get more from your School
ELC helps school results by accelerating the core subjects ahead of school while supporting other subjects as needed. Then when they encounter a concept at school they can do it with confidence. We work on ‘playing the school game’ to make it work for students not against them.
More effective than tutoring
ELC’s method is more than tuition or tutoring because we teach ahead of school, rather than playing catch-up. We know the curriculum and the most important concepts that students will need to do well at school. We teach these before students encounter them at school.
- To enable future choice of professions and enhance confidence and self-esteem, we accelerate learning to each student’s own potential in all areas, and particularly in mathematics.
- To get more from the school system, our tailored processes follow the same curriculum as taught in schools, but streamlined and personalised.
- Extended learning in their formative years smooths their path through high school, puberty and beyond.
- So that students dream their dreams and associate school and academics with greater future choice, we can engage the psychology of positive learning and modify student behaviour.
- To support students’ point-of-need learning from school when needed, our systems and processes allow us to incorporate school tasks while also learning for the future.
- To make family life simpler and less stressful, we holistically manage student learning in active partnership with families.

“Lock in B, Eddie!” We say students should have Mathematics B as their default expectation, and aspire to it from early on. In Year 10, students choose which maths subjects to study in year 11 and 12 for their QCE. But the road to Maths B starts years before then. Keep options open. Predicating theRead More
Your child should be aiming to be towards the head of the pack in mathematics from early on. The later it’s left, the harder it is to catch up. Some schools start ‘streaming’ students into higher- and lower-level mathematics groups way before they start actively talking about career pathways. This presupposes that students in lowerRead More
What is a box and whisker plot? Box and Whisker Plots, or just Box Plots, are a graphical summary of data spread (dispersion) and central tendency. Here’s a quick explanation of why box and whisker plots are useful. All box plots show (from left to right): Minimum First/Lower Quartile/Q1 Median, aka Middle/Second Quartile/Q2 Third/Upper Quartile/Q3 Maximum TheseRead More
Most students who present to Extended Learning Centres are ready for concepts above their year level. In many cases, WAY beyond their year level. Maths expectations at school are too low, largely because Queensland’s year levels have been “elongated” rather than updated. At ELC, because we teach individuals, not classes, not year levels, we can: target students’ needs,Read More
Streamlined plans for schools to focus on what’s important, hopefully. Queensland has released condensed unit plans for Maths and English, updating the current bloated, impossible, ineffective syllabus. Thank goodness! Teachers have been reporting that there is not time to adequately cover the mass of content. The sheer number of topics means little time for revisionRead More
By Dan Blore, Educator The best way of effecting long-term student success is to expose students to curriculum ahead of school. When working towards a student’s future, we always take into account the bigger picture and the long-term. This goes to the core of what we do. Over-emphasising test scores Following the dominant school narrative, parentsRead More
