Meet our 2019/2020 Scholarship student Edwin
Have you got what it takes to be a Talent 100 Scholar?
Introducing some of the brightest minds across our Talent 100 Tuition Centres, with students from Burwood, Epping, Chatswood, Hurstville and our latest Sydney City Campus – welcome to our 2020 Scholarship students!
We can share their unique personalities and passions both in and outside of our classrooms.
This week we’ve been chatting to our Scholarship student, Edwin who will be sitting the HSC this year.
When did you join Talent 100?
Term 4, 2019
Which subjects are you taking at Talent and how do you feel about the courses?
I’m currently taking HSC Physics and Economics.
I’m really enjoying taking these courses at Talent because they allow me to familiarise myself with the content 1-2 weeks before learning it at school (then you’re not seeing it for the first time)
Which Talent centre do you study in?
Can you share your number one study tip?
It’s a little cliche, but it’s not necessarily the hours you put in. Focus more on studying smart (work on the things that you’re actually bad instead of focusing on the things you’re good at). The things that you’re bad at are the things that you really need to work on.
How can you describe the environment at Talent 100 Hurstville?
The environment at Talent is super friendly and casual – it probably owes to the fact that we have small class sizes and personable tutors. There’s also more of an emphasis on progress rather than just achievement or getting ‘good’ marks. The focus is more on the process of improving and getting better.
Plus the Mentors are really down to earth people, you can ask them anything. You can actually talk to them and have a conversation, as opposed to lecturers or teachers who sit at the front of the class and talk to you.
What’s the best part about tutoring at Talent?
It definitely helps to fill in all the gaps and knowledge that we’re taught in school.
What’s really helpful for me is that tutoring can provide you with different types of questions, and some which are more difficult, that you might not get to see at school.
What are your career aspirations after high school?
I think I’d love to go into the STEM field, where it’s Mathematics, Engineering or Computer Science. Also to potentially apply to some US colleges if that’s possible.
If you could describe Talent in one word, what would it be?
