Why Boldtutor?
A major concern for HSC students today surrounds their view that they are not receiving the insightful guidance required to develop new wisdom while studying specific topics or texts in English. Indeed interest breeds intelligence and the more engaged students are with their texts, the more likely they will develop the interest and skill required to master the English curriculum.
In order to cultivate interest and comprehension, Boldtutor makes sure that students understand the vital role certain texts can play in the development of real life skills. HSC texts such as Julius Caesar and The Prince for example offer fantastic lessons on themes such as justice, power, morality, authority and deception that can be used in real world contexts. Once students realise the didactic potential of these texts, they will begin to grasp valuable ideas that will facilitate their intellectual evolution.
After comprehension of text has been mastered, Boldtutor provides clients with exclusive resources on essay writing. These documents include original band 6 HSC responses coupled with sentence starter and essay construction documents catered to the specific module that students are studying. These blueprints will help students construct clear and analytical essay responses that will improve their ability to master the HSC syllabus.
Boldtutor also helps students studying English literature at University. Aristotle’s Poetics and various Shakespeare texts are just some of the works that Boldtutor has covered with students. With in-depth original analysis a priority, Boldtutor may be able to provide you with the notes and tutors required to improve your writing at University level.

My son started tutoring with Boldtutor in Year 11 and improved enormously. The grades improved immediately going from a C to B and early in 2015 my son managed to obtain an A in Year 12. Boldtutor pointed out my son's weaknesses (within the first few lessons) in essay writing and was able to guide him accordingly.
