Meet Your Talent 100 Mentor: Rosanna
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.

Rosanna’s Top 5 Study Tips:
Always prioritise your weakest subjects when studying, but make sure you spend time on each one!
Write summary notes on any theory points you find challenging.
Note down hard practice questions you come across so that you don’t forget how to approach them.
Group study sessions are a great way to teach your friends what you are confident in, and receive help from others in subjects you struggle with.
Remember to take breaks from time to time so that you don’t overwork yourself.
What is your favourite part of teaching at Talent 100?
Definitely the community! The staff members at Talent are always welcoming and the students light up my day.
What’s your best advice for students sitting the HSC this year?
Study hard, but make sure you enjoy your last year of high school, because you will definitely miss your school life once you graduate. Work towards your personal best always 🙂
Where do you see yourself after Talent and University?
I will hopefully establish my own optometry clinic in the future and prescribe people with glasses! If the chance ever comes, I’d also like to try living in another country for a while (maybe Japan!)
I enjoy reading manga and watching anime!
