Year 11 English Advanced Tutoring Course Details

English success is not simply about knowing the “right answer”.

Rather it is about being able to translate what you have learnt in class and then make meaningful connections in order to answer the question successfully.

This course will give students the ability to deepen their understanding of key ideas such as

  • Context
  • Audience
  • Purpose

By giving students modelled exercises that will develop the reading and analysing skills that transfer to assessments. Once students can analyse texts they will apply their new knowledge to communicate their ideas creatively and critically.

The skills of reading, understanding and responding form the basis for long-term success in English.

What our
Year 11 English students say

  • The Year 11 English course was highly effective in preparing me for the rigours of Year 12 English. It allowed me to further develop writing skills and work to develop a well-thought-out essay under time constraints.

  • The Matrix English courses have helped me better under the more abstract concepts within texts that we study at school, and have helped me understand different styles of writing, such as discursive, much better.
