Writing Club is held online. The platform we use for writing club 1-1 tutor practice sessions is similar to Skype, but better! It allows real-time interaction with tutors and students via microphone and chat - think about it as an online classroom. We use our own Expert Writing Insights to provide student's essay rankings and insights and break down their score in different criteria. Our in-house developed software also makes masterclass video recommendations based on your identified weaknesses in writing.Can this be only done for exams or can it be done for general improvement?
Writing Club can be done for general improvement aswell as exams. In fact, Writing Club can help you maintain and build up your writing skills over time. Remember writing is a creative skill and it takes time to build up this skill. Think about tennis, in order to improve, you keep practicing. It's the same with writing.When should I start writing club compared to the date of my exam?
This really depends on your writing level. If you're getting Cs, I'd start at least a year before and if you're getting As then probably 2-3 months prior would be good. Remember, that Writing club is ongoing and writing improves with time so the earlier the better - you can also do it as regular program and extend each time.How does access work?
Writing Club is accessed through a monthly payment. You pay for each month of access.Does my access to videos, practice sessions and writing feedback carry through if I don’t use them in that month?
No. Access is per month and by subscription. There are no carry overs.Are writing club sessions held through school holidays and public holidays?
Writing club tutor-led sessions are held throughout the year but not on official national public holidays.Are there refunds if you don’t use your access?
Your subscription pays for access, not usage. After the end of the month, your access stops and if you wish to renew, you just click on the extend access button and you can upgrade or downgrade your plan. Your subscription fees for the current month are generally non-refundable, subject to law.What if I don’t need writing club for a specific month because I’m going on holidays? Can I pause it?
Of course! At the moment, writing club is paused after the month of your subscription. If you're on holidays, just don't click extend access for that month.What happens to my access if I pause or cancel?
If your plan is inactive (not extended), you will not be able to access any videos, practice sessions or writing ranking and feedback during the pause period. If you close your account, your learning plan will no longer be available.Who tutors my child in the practice sessions? Are they qualified teachers?
Our tutors have a valid Working with Children Check or relevant state based teacher license. They are high achievers and some of their credentials are ATAR 99, PhD in English, winner of Ian MacGregor Rotary award for English studies and more.We don’t select qualified teachers if they do not pass our selection process and in the past, we have chosen high achieving individuals over qualified teachers. This is because we look at ability rather than just a qualification. ATAR scores that are accepted in some university courses to become a qualified teacher are below a pass rate (ATAR 30-50) - see this article from The Australian (2016). Your child deserves to learn from someone who has achieved at a high level themselves. Therefore, we select tutors based on real demonstrated ability to write and teach and each tutor goes through a rigorous selection process. Every tutor I personally select is someone I would want to tutor my own child. Who ranks and gives feedback to my child's essays and how regularly is it checked?
During your 1-1 tutor session, your tutor will rank and explain to your child, why they received their mark. They will also ask you to rewrite areas where you would lose marks. There are 1-1 tutor sessions available all days except Thursday and Fridays.How many masterclass videos are there to choose from and how long is each masterclass video?
There are 96 masterclass videos that you can choose from and each video is at least 30 minutes in duration. There will be 46 masterclass videos covering argumentative/persuasive writing, 46 masterclass videos cover creative writing and 1 masterclass video each on time strategy and major tips for each of NAPLAN Year 3 & 5, NAPLAN Year 7 & 9, Selective schools tests and scholarship test.How do I book in a 1-1 tutor writing practice session?
Through your dashboard, you’ll be able to book in sessions that suit your schedule. You are able to book in a 1-1 personal writing session more than 48 hours prior to it commencing.What happens in a 1-1 personal tutor writing practice session?
You'll read your piece and the tutor will rank it at that same time. They'll explain to you why you received your mark and what you need to do to improve it. During that time, you'll work on rewriting parts that need improvement and work towards getting a higher mark for your next piece. There is no theory taught (that’s done in the masterclass videos) but rather, the practice session is about practicing your writing and getting real time feedback, along with editing your own writing. 1-1 personal tutor writing practice sessions go for 20 minutes.Is there any homework from the practice sessions?
The practice sessions are stand-alone sessions where students work on their writing and editing skills. There is no homework set that is to be completed after the session and then corrected in future sessions as each session is independent of each other. The writing prompts that you are allocated for practice can be considered "homework".What happens with writing ranking and feedback? Is it anonymous?
Writing pieces, ranking and insights through Expert Writing Insights is publicly available, however, when you sign up, we allocate an anonymous username to your account so that you’re not publicly identified. You can change this name to anything you like that is appropriate.
