As an experienced teacher with VCE, scholarship and selective entrance high schools exams , I (originally a university Lecturer in one of the Chinese top universities) have more than 20 year teaching experience in VCE, Scholarship exams, IB, US SAT, A - Level and O - level both in Australia and Singapore. I believe teaching is to guide and support students with a lot of care and patience.

Small study groups are arranged to make sure students get enough attention from the tutor. Students are always encouraged to ask questions and get involved in class discussions.

Detailed notes and plenty of worksheets are also provided for students for each subject. A lot of students have made dramatic improvements with their subjects, most importantly they actually enjoy our classes with fun and passion. Most of them achieved great success in VCE or Scholarship exams.

Physics, Chemistry, EAL, Chinese

"The two years I had Dr Hou teach me has impacted me greatly in my studies for VCE. By the time exams came by, I was the most confident I've ever been for them. Dr Hou communicates effectively between the students, she gets to know them and understand their personalities, allowing for a greater connection between student and teacher. Her notes and exercises provide deep insight to the nuances of exams questions, resulting in improvisation, adapting and overcoming the problems present in exams. She is flexible with busy schedule, catering for both my friend and I who were held back by compulsory Saturday sport, sacrificing her time and allotting it for us. Tutoring aside, she also provide career discussions during breaks which has positively benefited my outlook for university and future endeavours. The working environment is friendly and the staff are supportive of everyone there. I enjoyed my time at ready tuition, and I am grateful for my parents sending me here. Just be prepared for absolutely no sleep ins."
