Meet Your Talent 100 Mentor: Chenhao Liu
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.

Chenhao’s Top 5 Study Tips:
Help each other out. The 60,000 other people receiving their ATARs will massively outnumber your friends. They’re the people you’re truly competing against. Your friends are a valuable source of help because you can easily ask them questions, and since they know you best they can give you honest feedback.
Opt to wake up earlier to study in the morning rather than pulling an all-nighter. There are no exams at midnight – no use conditioning yourself to work well at that time.
Sleep early before exams; before 11pm as a rule of thumb. You won’t be able to perform as well in a sleep-deprived state. If you’ve been staying up for several nights leading up to exams, try to readjust your sleeping schedule a few days in advance.
Never give up. If you don’t do as well as you wanted to for an assessment, remember that you still have the opportunity to come back stronger next time. You can do it.
Try to indulge in a wide variety of activities, including sport or extra-curricular volunteering activities. An interviewer will most likely look beyond your ATAR score.
