Golden Key Education is a professional tuition organisation which specializes in tutoring in SACE, VCE, IB, UMAT, Primary and Middle School grade curricula, as well as Scholarships. With locations in both Adelaide and Melbourne, we aim to help students' meet their unique educational needs. Our team is comprised of highly experienced Australian registered teachers, SACE moderators, university graduates with doctorates in mathematics and science, and high SACE ATAR achievers. Within our classes, we help students engage with curricula through a variety of techniques, such as detailed explanations of content, summarising key learning points, assisting with and assigning homework, holding after-class Q&As, giving students personalised progress feedback, chapter testing and so on.
Golden Key Education is designed to empower students. Not only will we help students to significantly improve their academic standards, but we will also teach students to recognise the importance of learning, striving for and ultimately achieving their goals in life. We aim for students to have an enjoyable experience learning under the vibrant tutelage of our teachers so that students can ‘release their limitless potential’.
Our Group Class sessions are typically held weekly for approximately 60-90 minutes per subject. These small classes (maximum 5 students for SACE subjects) aim to consolidate each students' understanding of key knowledge and concepts they will learn from school. In addition, they also seek to expose students to learning content normally taught in later years so that they can receive and maintain a head start over their peers.
In order to accurately determine the needs of a student, all enrolled students are required to undergo an initial assessment, the result of which is used to assign students to a class corresponding to their relative foundational knowledge. In this way, we are able to provide classes for both the student who seeks to catch up on their schoolwork, to those that hunger for a greater challenge. However, assigned classes are never final, and if we feel that a student is outperforming their current level, we will reassign the student into a more advanced class. We will also ensure that all students of the same group have similar learning progress at their schools.
Homework and other practice materials are also provided each week to complement the theoretical component taught in class. Feedback on students' progress will also be routinely given so as to help students improve on a weekly basis. All the students enrolled in our Group Class program are also expected to sit spontaneous and/or premeditated tests and exams on a regular basis.
Our private tuition program is a personalised, highly productive, and academically rewarding way for students to learn and study. Through this program, students will receive valuable study advice from our registered school teachers and be provided with the same learning formula that helped many of our tutors achieve their success in the SACE exams. Students will be coached, motivated, supported and offered personalised attention and instruction throughout.
During the course of every session, students will receive detailed and interactive instruction that strengthens, consolidates and extends on required concepts learnt in schools and given substantial notes that include step-by-step instructions, fully worked examples, and take-home practice questions. The questions are designed to reinforce taught concepts and become progressively more difficult as students master the more challenging aspects of their subject.
Golden Key Medicine Pathway
Golden Key’s Medicine Pathway Preparatory Course (MPPC) is an intensive year long program aimed at readying aspiring candidates for their entry into undergraduate medicine. The program is delivered through small class sizes, typically groups of 4 to 5 students, to ensure that each student deserves the close support they need to excel. Unlike existing UCAT preparation products, MPPC encompasses more than just the UCAT exam. The course is delivered across two phases:
1. Phase One: The first phase runs from January to July and is designed to reinforce the candidate’s critical thinking aptitude and logical / analytical problem solving prowess – a skill required for the UCAT and for problem solving in general. The course covers problem solving methodologies and logical reasoning techniques that are widely applicable to problems with deterministic and probabilistic outcomes.
2. Phase Two: The second phase runs from 1 September to 31 December. It is an intensive engagement aimed at equipping candidates with the skills required to effectively navigate the interview process for undergraduate and postgraduate medicine. Our interview coaching is a targeted training regime that seeks to enhance the candidate’s communication skills as well as their ability to improvise and empathise under live conditions.
