Science

We have recently introduced science tutoring at Shine Education. We have a number of tutors who specialise in Science. Performing well and enjoying Science involves much more than just knowing key facts. Students must know how to apply science skills to a range of different science problems. Students must also be able to write up scientific reports and compare and analyse information. Our science tutors help students to develop science inquiry skills which is a key part of the science curriculum.

Our Science programs are based on the Australian National Science Syllabus. We tailor our science programs to meet the individual needs of our students.
