How is Matrix different?

    Matrix Others


Vast classroom teaching experience, HSC and/or university teaching experience with an ability to explain concepts clearly


Have little or no actual teaching experience, cannot explain difficult concepts in a manner that students can understand



Teaching program that covers the NSW Education Standards Authority syllabus. Structured learning system that allows students to develop sound study habits every week


Most private tutors and other tuition centres do not follow a set structure; rather they have an ad-hoc approach without considering timing and outcomes



A full set of resources written by academics and education researchers. Online access to Supplementary exam papers / texts with top responses.


Only address content that students raise, use generic textbooks.



Short quizzes and topic tests held under strict exam conditions to ensure students have a solid understanding of the subject


No exam-style quizzes or tests that assess the student’s weaknesses. Hence, they are not able to identify their specific learning needs



Weekly tracking of Grades, Quiz and Topic Test results so student and parents can monitor their progress.


No measured tracking process, so they cannot tell if the student is struggling or improving.

Learning Management System


Share information, academic resources and advice with classmates from over 220 schools.


Do not have the library of resources or past exams that can help students excel

One-to-one Workshops


Free workshops to target individual learning needs


No additional support outside the lesson.
