Student Athlete Tutoring

‘We look after the academics while you excel in your sport’

At Optimise Learning, we understand that young people can compete at the highest level athletically and simultaneously pursue academic excellence.

In consultation with each student athlete’s school, our teaching staff design and deliver individually tailored programs to ensure the academic studies of young athletes are not compromised whilst they are away from school training and competing in world class events.

Our 1:1 student to teacher ratio enables staff to adjust curriculum content to meet the academic needs of individual students, whilst taking into consideration each student’s preferred learning style, their academic goals, and their training and competition schedule.

Tutoring For Student Athletes

At Optimise Learning, we understand that with the right support and resources, young people can compete at the highest level athletically and simultaneously pursue academic excellence.The aim of our tutoring program is to provide student athletes with personalised educational services and resources, to enable them to continue their studies whilst they are away from school training and competing.

Optimise Learning education co-ordinators contact each student athlete’s school and communicate with their teachers to develop an individually tailored program. Our highly experienced and successful teachers tutor students face to face or online, whilst they are away from school.

Optimise Learning’s online virtual classroom enables student athletes to access their lessons and learning tasks from anywhere at anytime. Our goal is to ensure student athletes re-join their peers at school, secure in the knowledge their academic learning has continued despite them being ‘off-campus’ for significant periods of time. Student athletes who study with Optimise Learning enjoy the unique opportunity of training and competing for their chosen sport, whilst completing their academic studies from anywhere, at anytime.

Academic Programs

Student athletes studying with Optimise Learning enjoy the unique opportunity of training and competing for their chosen sport, whilst completing their academic studies from anywhere, at any time. The student athlete’s school teachers, and AA Tutoring teaching staff work together to develop a course of study that positions the student for both academic and athletic success.

Teachers who work for Optimise Learning are qualified, experienced and successful educators. Optimise Learning offers student athletes a wide range of curriculum choices at each year level that take into account the latest developments in brain research and the most effective teaching methods.

From the Preparatory Year to Year 7, we progress from an integrated approach in the early years of schooling to a more specialised, subject-specific curriculum in Year 7. Throughout the Junior School years, and especially in the earlier years, we devote particular attention to English, Mathematics and Science – the natural foundation of many learning outcomes encountered in later years.

In Year 7, students can select from the core subjects of English, Mathematics, Science, Geography, and History and Physical Education. They can also choose a language to study.

In Year 8, students can select from core subjects English, Mathematics, Science, History, Design and Innovation Studies, Geography and Physical Education. They can also choose a language to study.

In Years 9 and 10, students can select from subjects in the core areas (English, Mathematics, Science, History and Physical Education) and combine these with selections from a number of key learning areas. Subject units available include Business and Finance,  Languages, Physical Education and Elective Science.

In Years 11 and 12, students follow the guidelines for senior studies set by the Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority, the National Certificate of Educational Achievement or the International Baccalaureate.

Online Tutoring For Athletes

Optimise Learning provides students athletes with academic support and individualised tutoring services, enabling them to compete at the highest level athletically and simultaneously pursue academic excellence.

Online tutoring programs for student athletes provide personalised academic tuition and support, enabling athletes to continue their studies whilst they are away from school training and competing.

Optimise Learning’s online tutoring services work exactly the same way as their face-to-face tutoring services do, except the teacher and the student interact online. The ratio of one student to one teacher in our online lessons has been shown to accelerate student learning, with many students returning to school ahead of their class peers.

Optimise Learning communicate directly with each student athlete’s school, to ensure that both teachers and students are aware of the curriculum content and tasks that need to be completed whilst the student is away from school.
