## How is Matrix different?

MatrixOthers
##### Teachers

Matrix

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

Others

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

##### Program

Matrix

Teaching program that covers the NSW board of studies syllabus. Structured learning system that allows students to develop sound study habits every week

Others

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

##### Resources

Matrix

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

Others

Only address content that students raise, use generic textbooks.

##### Assessments

Matrix

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

Others

No exam style quizzes and test that assess the student’s weaknesses, hence not being able to identifying their learning needs

##### Reporting

Matrix

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

Others

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

##### Learning Management System

Matrix

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

Others

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

##### One-to-One Workshops

Matrix

Free workshops to target individual learning needs

Others

No additional support outside the lesson.
