Lessons & Teaching

At MWNS, our team of over 80 teachers enables us to accommodate students of all levels and abilities. Some students join MWNS to address learning gaps, while others enrol to maintain their grades or strive for excellence.

Additionally, we provide resources and specialised teachers to support students with learning difficulties such as ADHD, Dyslexia, Dysgraphia, Dyscalculia, and ADD.

Our Year 1 English tutoring employs a variety of teaching methods tailored to enhance reading and writing skills. These include phonics instruction, guided reading sessions, interactive storytelling, writing workshops, and language games.

By incorporating multi-sensory activities and individualised instruction, we cater to diverse learning styles and foster a love for literacy.

English tutors tailor their lessons by assessing the student’s proficiency level, strengths and areas for improvement. They may conduct initial evaluations or discussions to understand specific learning goals and preferences.

 

Based on this information, tutors design customised lesson plans that address the student’s unique needs. They adapt their teaching methods to accommodate different learning styles, pacing and preferred modes of instruction.

Our Year 1 English tutoring sessions utilise a wide range of resources and materials designed to enhance learning outcomes. These may include age-appropriate books, interactive iPads, educational games, digital learning platforms, and tangible tools.

We carefully select resources that align with the Year 1 English curriculum and cater to diverse learning needs, ensuring a comprehensive and enriching learning experience for your child. We also incorporate students’ interests and preferences into lessons to make learning enjoyable and meaningful.

Assessments & Progress Monitoring

We do offer assessments at MWNS, however, we have found that a student’s reason for tutoring combined with school reports/exam results can be more helpful than a student’s performance on a single day.

We assess your child’s progress throughout our lessons as opposed as formally through weekly or termly exams. We find that by working with our students on a weekly basis in Individual or Micro Group lessons, our tutors develop a thorough understanding of their student’s abilities.

Our tutors document progress against the Australian Curriculum on a weekly basis to ensure their progress is accurate. All these progress reports, including weekly written evaluations and curriculum updates, are available on our Parent Portal.

Our Tutors

Our Year 1 English tutors are qualified teachers with degrees in education, universities students working towards a teaching degree, or experienced tutors. Additionally, all our tutors hold valid Working With Children Checks and participate in ongoing professional development reviews to stay abreast of best practices in teaching.

Learning Environment & Support

We create a positive and nurturing learning environment where Year 1 students feel valued, respected, and motivated to learn. Our tutors foster a sense of belonging and encourage active participation through praise, encouragement, and constructive feedback. Additionally, we incorporate interactive activities, games, and visual aids to make learning fun and engaging for young learners.

Absolutely. Our Year 1 English tutors are able to differentiate instruction and tailor learning experiences to meet the unique needs of each student. Whether your child requires additional support in phonics, comprehension, vocabulary development, or writing skills, our tutors adapt their teaching strategies and provide personalised interventions to ensure academic success.

Administration

Of course! Parents or students may reschedule lessons until the day prior to the scheduled session. We ask for a 24-hour notice or a doctor’s certificate for rescheduling. If a lesson isn’t rescheduled within the current term, it will be forfeited. Please note that no credits or refunds are provided for absences.

If your child no longer requires tuition and you wish to withdraw them, we will require 14 days’ notice. Your child is welcome to attend their scheduled lessons during the notice period. All withdrawals must be provided via email (admin@mwns.com.au).
If you have paid for the term in full, a credit for the balance of the term’s fees will be applied to your account and can be used by any of your children at any time.

Our Individual lessons are one-on-one with the tutor and cost $91/hr. Our Micro Group lessons have a maximum of 3 students in them and are $58/hr. 

We welcome payments in Cash, Credit Card, Bank Transfers, or through an Automatic Payment Schedule via Ezidebit.

 

For Ongoing Enrolments, it is necessary to establish an Automatic Payment Schedule, which can be processed either on a fortnightly basis or per term.

Our comprehensive English Assessments for Year 1, valued at $89, are designed to identify your child’s strengths and areas needing improvement.
