BTA - Better Tuition Academy
Tutoring For Everyone.

Better Tuition Academy or Belrose Tutoring Academy (as we were formerly known) (or BTA), was established in 2015 in the Northern Beaches of Sydney in a little-known suburb named Belrose.

Since then we've expanded our operations and now have established Academies situated in Belrose, Brookvale, Forestville, Gordon & Mona Vale.

BTA's Inception
Empowering Minds.

After privately tutoring for over 10 years each, Tom and Brennan brought Better Tuition Academy into fruition, with the vision of providing modern one-on-one quality tutoring to the community in optimised learning academies.

Since its establishment in 2015, BTA has grown significantly, with BTA now tutoring over 600 students each week and employing over 100 tutors.


BTA has grown since its original Academy in Belrose to now include Academies in Forestville, Mona Vale, Gordon & Brookvale, along with an excellent online tuition services division. We also offer in-home services for clients that fall within our travel radius.

What is the ideal length of lessons?

A crucial aspect of providing effective tutoring is determining the ideal lesson length to ensure maximum engagement and progress. This is why we offer personalised lesson lengths based on the student's age and subject of study.


Primary School Students
(Years 3 to 6): for younger learners, we recommend shorter sessions of 45 minutes to help with their attention-span and focus during the lesson.

 

High School Students
(Years 7 - 10): these students will greatly benefit from a 60-minute session, allowing for more in-depth exploration of the subject.

 

HSC Students

(Years 11 - 12): For more complex subjects and in anticipation of upcoming exams and assessments, longer sessions of 60-90 minutes is necessary to cover subject topics and materials comprehensively.

How often should my child have tutoring?

The frequency of lessons plays a crucial role in the student's academic success. Ensuring the right balance between regularity and flexibility can significantly impact their learning journey.

Consistency is key when it comes to effective tutoring. Regular lessons help students reinforce their understanding and comprehension of the subject as well as allowing them to build upon previous knowledge.

At BTA we recommend weekly tutoring sessions. As it allows for more in-depth exploration of subjects, homework assistance and keeping on top of their current school work.

For test preparation, upcoming assessments or higher level or advanced subjects (Years 11-12), more frequent and longer sessions are recommended.

While this is our recommendation, you can also choose to have fortnightly sessions.

How much should
Tutoring cost?

 

At Better Tuition Academy, we are proud to offer top-notch tuition services for students from Year 3 to Year 12 at affordable rates. Our experienced tutors are carefully selected and thoroughly trained to provide quality one-on-one tutoring tailored to meet the individual needs of our students.

 

All BTA tutors are required to undergo training in child safety, communication, proven tutoring strategies, accessing and using the best resources, teaching effectively online, use of AI in teaching and how to effectively teach neurodiverse students and more.
 

Compared to student tutors who charge around $30-40 an hour, and experienced tutors who can charge $180 an hour or more, our tutoring rates of $75 per hour for Years 3-10 and $90 per hour for Years 11 and 12 are highly competitive. Some tutors and tutoring companies can be charging these rates for group tutoring and they may limit their services to only teaching up to year 10.
