Meet Your Talent 100 Mentor: Uditha Jith
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.

Uditha’s Top 5 Study Tips:
Believe in yourself and remember that you are so much more than whatever mark or rank you receive. Don’t let anything prevent you from achieving your dreams.
Be unafraid to ask questions in class, even if they seem “easy” or “obvious”. You’re not expected to know everything and it’s better to clarify than be stuck over the same questions in an exam.
Prioritise your learning based on your strengths and weaknesses. It’s easy to fall into the trap of only studying your favourite or best subject, but all your subjects could contribute to your overall mark and it’s important you allocate them for each of them.
Try to complete as many past papers as you can to familiarise yourself with the questions and time pressure. Ensuring your review your mistakes and topics you had trouble with is the best way to solidify your knowledge of the subject.
Take care of yourself, both physically and mentally with a healthy work-life balance. Try not to stress, sleep well and hydrate yourself!
