Meet Your Talent 100 Mentor: Faybian Chow
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.

Faybian’s Top 5 Study Tips:
Understand the content and try to explain it to your friends using your own words. This will solidify what you already know and help you pinpoint what you need to work on.
Don’t memorise and then practise. Practise until you memorise.
Find a suitable environment to study in. Whether it be with friends, in a quiet room, with music, during the day or at night.
Past papers are your best resource. Do these sequentially and you will pick up on the types of questions they like to ask.
Don’t forget about your physical health too! Be active and play a sport or take part in any physical activity a few times a week.
I can do a few pen spin tricks!
