Avivo works with you to create a tailored tutoring experience with a subject specialist tutor you can relate to on a one on one basis. We tutor all ages in all subjects and we are VCE & IB specialists.
Your Wellbeing First
We use an integrated approach to tutoring by encouraging you to fully understand the importance of mental and physical well-being for learning. We enhance your learning by providing a combination of highly personalised one on one tutoring sessions and when necessary help you embrace mindfulness and the practice of relaxation to relieve stress and anxiety.
Managing Information Overload
Working Smarter Not Harder
Feel like you’re drowning in information from school and the internet? At times, it can be overwhelming and you can lose sight of what is necessary to learn. At Avivo, we simplify the information and process for consuming knowledge by showing you how to cut through the clutter and look at what’s relevant.
Tutoring is Not a Substitute for Study
Making the decision to be tutored in your academic studies requires the same commitment as learning an instrument. Daily practice is essential to mastering an instrument, to understanding new music and consolidating techniques.
Tutoring should be viewed in the same way. Curriculum is delivered at school by your teacher. A tutoring session is the opportunity to ask questions and master skills and techniques. Tutoring is a commitment to enhancing your learning not an alternative to daily study.
Busting the ATAR Myth
ATAR is a ranking not an indicator of your ability to succeed at university.
As experienced educators, we have first-hand experience of the university admission process within Australia and at many overseas institutions. In Australia, the ATAR provides tertiary institutions with a guide to academic ability but it is not a true indicator of your ability to succeed at University.
Tertiary Providers are also increasingly recognising the value of other personal attributes held by a student. Many courses now provide students with the opportunity to demonstrate their suitability using a multi-selection process which can include an audition, portfolio, interview and/or aptitude test, as well as awards and achievements to date.
Achieving your desired ATAR provides you with the path of least resistance to your first choice of course. However, your ATAR is only one way to gain entry to a tertiary course. There are now many other study pathways for a chosen career.
Balance Work and Play
We have a strong academic focus but also believe in down time. That’s why we don’t tutor on Fridays as everyone deserves a break and the opportunity to do something different. Our tutors are happy to help you work through strategies such as study planning and time management so you too can balance study and play. Avivo tutors have all been where you are and have great tips and strategies for managing a balanced lifestyle as a student.
It's OK To Ask For Help
Not coping with the stress of school or life in general? We work with different psychology groups that can assist you. Talk to your tutor as we have a confidential process in place to help you.
