THE HSC IS HARD – DON’T DO IT ALONE

 

I don’t think the HSC has ever been as competitive as it is now. The standard of high performers continues to improve every year, making it harder and harder to stand out from the other 80,000 students who will sit their exams in October.

I’ve been working with HSC students for 12 years and know how hard it can be. It takes constant discipline and focus, and it can be an isolating experience for students who often feel alone on the journey.

The last 12 years have shown me that having someone to lean upon through the HSC makes life immeasurably easier on both students and their parents. Having someone who is on your side, fighting for you in the tough times makes a world of difference.

History has shown us that every high achiever has had a mentor in life. Steve Jobs mentored Mark Zuckerberg when Facebook was just a tiny startup. Oprah was mentored by the poet Maya Angelou and Yves St. Laurent was mentored by Christian Dior when he first arrived in Paris. Socrates mentored Plato who in turn mentored Aristotle.

There is something beautiful about the mentor relationship. It is having someone with experience to guide you through the hurdles of life – or as we do here, the hurdles of the HSC.

I personally mentor every student who joins my mentorship program, and as a result have helped countless state-ranked graduates get in to the University course of their dreams.

Oprah Winfrey once said, “Mentors are important and I don’t think anybody makes it in the world without some form of mentorship.”

I would love to be your mentor.

ABOUT YOUR HSC TUTOR, NIC ROTHQUEL

 

family

 

Hi! It’s so nice to have you here.

I am a father of 2 beautiful girls and a lucky husband to an amazing wife. I am a full-time HSC tutor, and have been working with HSC students since 2005, spending more than 10,000 hours one-on-one with students in that time. I know the NSW syllabus like the back of my hand and have seen countless students go from failing a subject to topping the class in as little as a term. I have had dozens of year 12 students get 100% in HSC assessments and ATARs that no-one (except me) had expected.

I have worked one-on-one with well over 400 students and every one of them has seen a significant increase in their academic performance.

It is worth noting that this is my full-time job. I am not just a university student looking for a side job or a teacher making some extra cash on the side. This is what I do all day, every day.

I have delivered special focus seminars in schools and Universities all over Australia. I have been featured in the Sydney Morning Herald, The Daily Telegraph and other publications as an educational consultant, and have marked thousands of essays from students of all abilities.

But, more than just school results, I focus on developing authentic and nourishing relationships with my students – I want them to look forward to our sessions each week and become better individuals as a result. I thrive on motivating and inspiring my students; I want to see them succeed in every aspect of life, and provide them with the support to make this happen. I have worked with dozens of unmotivated students with no direction or drive and watched them do a full 360 as a result of our sessions together.

I am qualified (B.B.A w/B.A, Macquarie University) and accredited to tutor in Australia, have a working with children clearance and have an abundance of references that can be provided to assure you of this success.

I started Your HSC Tutor to keep up with the demand for tuition I was receiving and to allow me to reach students outside of my geographical reach. It is an ongoing mentorship program that gives students someone to depend on through the hardest year of their lives.

I know that without a doubt my experience and knowledge can bring you significant value. Sign up today and let’s do this together.

WHAT PEOPLE HAVE SAID:

 

I have literally hundreds of testimonials that I could share with you, but here are just a few of my favourites:

 

JONATHAN, THE FOREST HIGH SCHOOL

When I first met Jon he was disengaged from school and was struggling in both English and Maths. I began working with him half-way through year 12 where the best mark he had achieved so far that year was 32% in maths and 40% in English. In his trial exams (after 8 sessions together), he received 70% in Maths and 75% in English. This showed him what he was truly capable of and we continued together until the end of year 12. In his HSC exam he received a band 6 (+90%) in both subjects, and gained admission to the University course of his choice.

Here is an email I received from Jon’s mother, Tina, just before the end of the year:

“YOU ARE THE BEST TUTOR WE’VE EVER HAD, AND WE CAN BOTH SEE THIS IN JONATHON’S ATTITUDE. HE SEEMS VERY COMFORTABLE AROUND YOU. YOU HAVE BEEN A GREAT INSPIRATION FOR HIM AS HE HAS SHOWN A MORE POSITIVE ATTITUDE TOWARDS MATHS AND ENGLISH SINCE YOU CAME ON TO THE SCENE – ESPECIALLY IN HIS CLASS RESULTS AND ASSIGNMENTS.
JOHN AND I ARE SO IMPRESSED AND HAPPY WITH YOUR WORK AND WE HOPE WE CAN CALL UPON YOU IN OUR OTHER DAUGHTER’S HIGH SCHOOL YEARS. YOUR PROFESSIONALISM, PERSONALITY AND QUALITY WORKMANSHIP HAS HELPED IN ALL AREAS OF JONATHON’S TUTORING.”


TOBY, ST PAULS CATHOLIC COLLEGE

I first encountered Toby when he was just a shy year 8 boy. He was very insecure and his lack of confidence was impacting his studies. We began working together weekly and I instantly began to see something in him change. Because someone else believed in him, he began to believe in himself, and this became evident in both his relationships and his school work.

This is a letter I received from Toby’s mother, Gwen, about a year into our time together:

“I SOUGHT TUTORING A LITTLE OVER A YEAR AGO BECAUSE MY SON HAD LOST ALL MOTIVATION AND HIS GRADES WERE DROPPING FAST. A TEACHER FROM HIS SCHOOL RECOMMENDED SEEING NIC, WHERE WE SAW HIM ONCE A WEEK ON AVERAGE. NOT A GREAT ONE FOR STUDY, MY SON NOW LOOKS FORWARD TO HIS TUTORING SESSIONS AND HIS MOTIVATION AND GRADES HAVE BOTH IMPROVED RAPIDLY. HE IS NOW MANAGING OVER 80% IN HIS SUBJECTS AND HIS TEACHERS HAVE ONLY PRAISE FOR HIM. I AM REALLY PLEASED WITH THE OUTCOME AND I WOULD RECOMMEND NIC TO ANYONE CONSIDERING TUTORING!”


ISAAC, PITTWATER HIGH SCHOOL

I will never forget the first session with Isaac; he wouldn’t even look at me. I had just received a text from his Mum, saying that he refused to do tutoring and they had just had a huge fight about it. Isaac had been skipping classes, not doing assessments and was just one step away from getting kicked out of school. His parents didn’t know what to do with him, so they called me and decided to give it a try. We made it through the first session, and by the end of it he was asking when I was next coming. The transformation was incredible. Of his own accord he handed his xbox over to his Mum, because he knew it was distracting him from getting work done. He went and got a job. His social life improved. But most of all, his marks did a complete 360. Where he was getting zero’s due to non-attempt, he began getting 50%, then 70% and then 90%.

Here is an email I received from Isaac’s mum, Mary-Beth:

“ISAAC ABSOLUTELY LOVES HIS SESSIONS WITH YOU – HE KEEPS ASKING ME IF HE CAN DO TWO A WEEK!
I DON’T KNOW HOW YOU DID IT. HE HAS MATURED IN TO THIS CONFIDENT NEW PERSON, AND I KNOW IT WOULDN’T HAVE HAPPENED WITHOUT YOU. THANK YOU SO MUCH – I AM VERY HAPPY TO BE A REFERRAL FOR ANYONE CONSIDERING GETTING TUTORING WITH YOU!”


HANA, FRESHWATER HIGH SCHOOL

I first started working with Hana halfway through year 12 after she had been with another tutor but had failed to see any improvement. She needed help with maths and English, but also general support across the board. She didn’t really care about school and had no direction for life beyond the HSC. Her parents were very concerned that she was going to fail everything, and the constant fighting between them was a huge burden on everyone. After our first session we set some small attainable goals (like do 5 maths questions a night) which she was able to achieve. We then continued to double it until she was doing complete chapters each week. She went from failing to surpassing everyone’s expectations.

Here is an email I received from Craig, Hana’s Dad, shortly after HSC results were released:

“HI NIC.
JUST THOUGHT YOU’D LIKE TO KNOW THAT HANA PASSED ALL HER CLASSES, GETTING FAR HIGHER GRADES IN MATHS AND ENGLISH THAN I OR SHE THOUGHT WERE LIKELY.
I’D LIKE TO THANK YOU FOR THE EFFORT AND GUIDANCE YOU’VE GIVEN HANA PRECEDING THE EXAMS. YOUR TIME TOGETHER WAS INVALUABLE AND WE SAW HOW YOUR SUPPORT CHANGED HER ATTITUDE COMPLETELY.
SHE GAINED A LOT OF CONFIDENCE FROM THOSE MINI-WINS, AND ACTUALLY STUDIED WHICH WAS INCREDIBLE!
IT WAS A WIN FOR EVERYBODY AND CERTAINLY LESS STRESS ON ALL INVOLVED.
I WOULD BE MORE THAN HAPPY TO RECOMMEND YOUR SERVICES SHOULD ANY OF MY FRIENDS BE SEEKING TUTORING FOR THEIR CHILDREN.”

YOUR TRUST IS SO IMPORTANT TO ME

 

Dear parents,

As a father myself, I know just how precious our children are – you don’t want some stranger from the internet being a part of their world. You want someone reliable, authentic and trustworthy.

Whilst hundreds of other families can vouch for me, I completely understand that you may have hesitations about letting me mentor your child without meeting me first.

That is why I would love to have a conversation with you before you do anything else.

Let’s schedule a 15 minute phone call where I can introduce myself and you can ask any questions you might have. There is absolutely no pressure to register for my mentor program; this won’t be a sales call – but I am hoping that I can prove that I am the one for the job. I can also send you further testimonials, my working with children check and any other documents you may wish to see.

Your trust is my greatest priority, and I want you to rest easy knowing your child is in the safest of hands.
