HOW DO THE CLASSES WORK?
At Rockdale Coaching College, we have group tutoring classes for Maths, English, Physics, Biology, Chemistry and History (both Modern & Ancient). From year 3 to year 11, the classes run once a week. Once the students hit their HSC year, the classes will switch to twice a week. Year 12 English students will attend a group class once a week and a private class to work on their individual pieces.
Our group classes are kept small to allow our tutors plenty of time to work with each student. Primary school classes are kept at a maximum of eight students per class and High School classes are capped at 12 students per class. As the classes are small, we do require that parents book in early before the term starts.
HOW DO WE TEACH?
The tutors at Rockdale Coaching College have created their own schedule for the year, using the Board of Studies rubric as a guideline. As each school follows their own teaching plan, students may find the RCC classes either ahead of school or revising the topic for the student. Either way, each syllabus requirement will be covered by year’s end.
We believe in reinforcement learning – what is taught that lesson will be practiced in class and will be practiced for homework also. If students have problems with school work, they are to bring them into class early and their tutor will help them.
Our teaching style is relaxed and personable. We aim to make connections with our students and encourage free-flowing communication. Students are welcomed to come in anytime the centre is open to study in our open learning space. Students are free to contact their tutors via SMS and email.
As our schedules are fairly tight with limited classroom space, there are few spots throughout the week for additional classes. Please do contact us though as we may be able to work out a time and space for you. Don’t hesitate to contact us and ask about subjects that are currently not on the schedule. We have many tutors with experience and skills teaching other school subjects.
The RCC team went above and beyond to ensure that I was always equipped with the right knowledge and skills to excel in my studies. Rob, Jenny and Anthony motivated me to achieve my personal goals and through their care and dedication, provided me with a strong sense of direction in the most stressful times of the HSC.

Whenever I had any mathematical problems, Rob was always the person to go to. He answered all my questions clearly and patiently at any time, and not on one occasion left me hanging. I couldn’t have asked for a funnier, more organised or more reliable Mathematics tutor. With English being a compulsory and the most important subject of all, Jenny saved the day. She marked every essay without any dilemma. With her honesty, support and effort in helping me to improve my writing skills, I was able to achieve an exceptional result in the end.

Joining the Rockdale Coaching College was the best choice I could possibly make in preparation of my HSC year. The tutors were clear and concise and I looked forward to every lesson. RCC definitely assisted me in gaining an amazing mark and helping me get into the course of my dreams.

Jenny’s dedication, caring, positive attitude and flexibility were just what Stephanie and Mark needed. Jenny encouraged both our children to take responsibility with purposeful lessons, which translated into improved test results. Stephanie scored an 83 for her English HSC results and is now studying Health Science at Uni. Mark is presently in year 10 and Jenny’s positive learning experience is leading to greater self-confidence and enthusiasm with English. Jenny simplifies hard work and has a gift for explaining things. Our money invested so far has been worth the reward and we could not ask for a better tutor.
