Tutoring

Supporting Student Learning

In addition to the supporting students in their learning inside their timetabled lessons, the College also offers an after school Tutoring Program. MCC’s tutoring program ensures that learners are afforded even more access to their teachers and their expertise to support them further in their journey.  This program is free of charge to families, demonstrating that MCC is indeed a school committed to academic growth of our students.

Tutoring

Weekly tutoring is offered in both Primary and Secondary between 3.40 pm – 4.30 pm on Tuesday and Wednesday respectively.

Primary Tutoring

Students who have been identified as requiring additional support in a specific learning area are invited to attend weekly tutoring with their homeroom teacher. This service is designed to help close a gap in a student’s understanding of a concept through targeted and intensive support. Tutoring groups are capped to keep class size relatively smaller to enable concentrated and targeted support.

Secondary Tutoring

No matter what a student’s need is or their level of ability, we strive to support them in their educational growth and development.  The tutoring services we provide are designed to cater to the specific needs of all our Secondary learners. This is provided through a three-fold approach, including: specialised tutoring, general tutoring and a homework hub.

Specialised Tutorial Groups in Secondary

Students are invited to join a tailored and intensive Tutorial group. Students accept the invitation with the understanding they are committed to tailored four-week program.

Tutorial groups target a specific skill or concept with the objective to extend students or help close a gap in their knowledge and understanding.  Tutoring groups are capped at 12 students to enable intensive support and run for a four-week cycle. A Tutorial group is led by the same teacher and can include learners from across different year levels.

General Tutoring in Secondary

The College offers weekly after school general tutoring services. All students are empowered to pursue their learning further by accessing the general tutoring service and can attend general tutoring with any teacher from the secondary team. All secondary students are welcome to attend on an ‘as needs’ basis. General tutoring provides students the opportunity to prepare for an upcoming assessment under the guidance of their subject teacher or seek clarification on any of the concepts or skills they have been learning in class.
