“If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.”
– Isaac Newton

More than just a formula

Student-centered approach

Comprehensive review of syllabus
Going deeper than the dot points by providing 
contextual examples and analysis allows better 
absorption of commonly forgotten theory.
Exam pressure training
Class exams train exam techniques as well as theory,
giving students practical experience with stress, time 
management and keeping cool.

Adaptable individual support
Students prefer different teaching styles. Our tutors are not micromanaged and can tailor teaching styles to be adaptable, building a unique atmosphere..

Year 12 Physics Lesson Guidelines

Student-centred learning at the forefront

Reference to in-house textbook
“Physics In Focus,” used in various
top-performing schools around NSW.

In-class multimedia presentations
aid explanation of difficult concepts
with visual stimulus

1.5 hour formal lesson – content introduction
In depth explanations of basic concepts and
problem solving strategies

0.5 hours tutorial – information consolidation
One on one guided lessons focussing on theory

Experience the SIGI advantage

Helping students learn how to learn
By allowing students to see the bigger picture. The unique SIGI atmosphere engages students and makes every learning experience an enjoyable one.
Fostering curiosity at every step
The “why” question is always asked to both challenge and enrich student learning beyond the syllabus. Engages students to think critically about every concept.

No student left behind
Complex topics are broken down into simple components to ensure student understanding before delving into the essential details needed for stage 6 responses
