Meet your Talent 100 Mentor: Aolei Yu
Here at Talent we’ve amassed a variety of Mentors which have taught and encouraged our students throughout the years – guiding them through high school and the HSC.
We call our teachers and tutors ‘Mentors’ because they deliver more than simply theory. Talent 100 Mentors are all outstanding achievers, but it’s their passion for teaching and mentoring which matters most. Whilst an exceptional academic record is a must, our Mentors are also chosen for their ability to work with students of all levels and provide the pastoral guidance for future success.
Not only do we want to give thanks to these Mentors who have enriched the lives of many at Talent, but want to share their unique personalities and passions while also inspiring the next generation of high school students to strive for their best.

Aolei’s Top 5 Study Tips:
Get a good night’s sleep before exams so that you are well rested and can approach the exam with a clear mind.
Understand how you study best, for example, I found that my concentration levels peaked at night, so I made sure to study the most difficult concepts then.
Keep a good balance between study, exercise, and socialising to maintain efficiency and motivation.
Utilise all the resources that you have access to, especially your teachers.
Have confidence in your abilities and work throughout the year: exams are not a good time to have self-doubt.
Feeling inspired for your own post-HSC journey, do you need a little more motivation?
