“Seeing the transformation is the best part of my job

Little things can keep holding a student back for years. Tutoring is often about finding the keys to a few important concepts – about learning how they learn.

Once we have identified what works for the individual student, they suddenly have peace of mind to really immerse themselves. That’s when the inspiration comes. And with inspiration comes real progress. Progress that will allow the student not only to excel at their next exam, but to hit the ground running when they take on more advanced studies, well beyond VCE.

This is not a linear journey. It’s transformational.“

Tutoring at Lisa's Study Guides was the best choice I ever made during Year 12. This "Maths and Science only" girl all of a sudden fell in love with English because of her amazing tutor Clare! I felt comfortable around my tutor and for a weak English student like me, I felt like everything started making sense and I felt myself improve (I realised when I looked back on my old work how weak I was in English). My analysis improved, writing, vocabulary and just my overall outlook towards the subject. This was the best investment I ever made, thank you so much LSG! I'm now pleased to call myself an "English student" :)

I definitely recommend getting tutored by Lisa's Study Guides team! They helped me build skills such as broadening my vocabulary, better phrasing of sentences, structuring my essay and offering in depth interpretations of the text being studied. They focus on your strengths and weaknesses and tailor each lesson to your needs. Best place for English tutoring!

I had absolutely smooth sailing and life changing experience with Lisa Study Guides specifically with the help of Fern, who basically pushed me to heights I never dreamt of in my Year 12 English studies. I highly recommend you give them a call and ask to work with Fern she's brilliant.
Britney Duong, Graduate
Thank you for helping me through English for the past 2 years! You and your tutors' positive enthusiasm really does rub off and I can say that I really have enjoyed studying English this year. You really have helped me learn so much and given me so many new ideas about my texts that I would not have found myself!
Lisa's Study Guides has continued to help VCE students gain confidence in English with their amazing English Study Guides. The book has truly boost my overall English grade. It has also allowed me to tackle SACs head on with all the tips and tricks it has to offer.

LSG's English tutoring is the best! My tutor, Kira, always brings the most insightful ideas to our sessions and has consistently helped me to consolidate my foundation in essay writing skills, which I found very helpful leading up to assessments and ultimately the exam. She is an incredible tutor! I also have found the ample resources in LSG to be extremely useful when I was still studying texts - they definitely helped me understand the texts more in depth. Definitely recommend!
Tai Ng, Parent
Very happy with my experience. My daughter wasn't confident in English, and now her tutor has helped her improve so much! Lisa is an excellent leader - you can tell she cares deeply about the company's students and is always working hard to improve their services.
Lynne Arthur, Parent
I would like to say thank you for everything Lisa's Study Guides has done. My son has had an amazing tutor for the last 18 months and I feel he will be able to perform a lot better in his VCE English exam. He has renewed confidence and feels a lot more at ease…I would recommend your tutors to anyone who has a child struggling.
I love the study guide, it has strategies that are easy to follow. I recommend it to all students.
Ping Qu, Graduate
My tutor Sophie has been such a legend throughout the whole year, giving me great samples, helping me with structuring essays and also expanding my vocabulary. LSG has offered so many resources and litcrits too, which I am really grateful for. I couldn't have survived year 12 English without your help. Thanks Sophie!<3
Michelle Xin, graduate and now tutor, English study score 50
Having been a part of the community at Lisa’s Study Guides as both a student and a tutor, I have been able to not only nurture my own English skills and abilities, but also to foster that interest and passion for English in my own students. It is a wonderful platform to grow and develop, and to be supported by Lisa and fellow students and tutors in the process!
Georgia Anderson, Graduate
A massive thank you to Fern from Lisa Study Guides for all her help with English this past year! From day one Fern was able to help me work towards my goals and understand the specific areas I struggled with most. I felt motivated by Fern’s continual dedication, she was always happy to go the extra step in reading more of my work, finding extra resources and thorough in ensuring all of my questions were covered. I struggled with writing my essays within the time frame, which she was highly skilled in helping me work through as well as improving my writing level as a whole. A true natural in all things tutoring and English!!! Could not recommend Fern highly enough, wouldn’t have made it through English without her
Sasha Semjonov, Teacher at Clonard College
Lisa's Study Guides has been crafted brilliantly; informative and supportive for all learners. A phenomenal resource.
