The Maxwell Method

Best English Teachers in Sydney

All our teachers are new syllabus State Rankers or Selective School Teachers and they’re absolutely itching to share their tried-and-tested strategies with you.

One-on-one Support

Secure immediate boosts in your results by getting one of our State Rankers or Selective School Teachers to help you prepare and polish your school assessment.

Convert Knowledge into Marks

Unlike other teachers who may focus on cramming content, we focus on providing you with the tools, skills and shortcuts to convert knowledge into exam marks.

Course Offerings

  • Intensive holiday course to pre-learn your prescribed texts

    • Get across the foundations of your school’s texts for the upcoming term, covering key scenes, contextual information, and discussion of the complex and often abstract ideas that arise in these texts.
    • Expand your writing skills and finish the course with your own refined Band-6 Grade model essay.
    • Receive our in-house booklet of notes and key information about their respective text, its context, key themes, critical points of analysis and how to link it to the syllabus.
  • One-on-one lessons during the term

    • We will help you tweak the Band-6 Grade model essay that you’ve written in the holiday course into good shape for your school assessment – 95% of our students consistently receive Band 6 results for their English assessments at school.
    • We will give personalised feedbacks to help you improve your writing with two free marking submissions each week included in your term package.
    • If you are studying a text not covered in a holiday course then we can still help you boost your marks through one-on-one tutoring.
  • Assessment Workshop During the Term

    • We will focus on improving your previous work and answering any questions you need to get ready for your assessment.
