The Shack provides a free tutoring service for local high school students, and volunteer tutors can choose the subject they feel most confident to tutor in. 

What's it all about?

You’re a bona fide uni student now, but what about all the pro facts and study skills you learned to get here? Put them to good use by volunteering with Shack Tutoring!

Contact hours are one hour per week on campus. The program runs between 3 and 6pm Tuesdays and Wednesdays during semester.

This is a great program that will give you warm and fuzzy feelings from helping someone out, while developing your interpersonal and communication skills. 

If you know (or are) a high school or primary school student who would like to be tutored, contact The Shack Youth Services to enrol. For more information about volunteering as a tutor, contact the Volunteer Coordinator (details below).

Semester two applications are now closed

Jess Chan

Degree: Science and Business (Psychology)

Why did you want to be a Shack tutor? Fuelled by my passion for learning and helping others, I was compelled to seize the great opportunity Shack Tutoring offered in providing educational assistance to underprivileged high school students. In the program I also saw potential challenges I could encounter and overcome that would help both my personal and professional growth.

Something interesting about yourself: Um… Well, I have been to two entire terms of swim school but still cannot swim. :(

What do you want to do when you graduate? I hope to be making meaningful and positive impacts on other people’s lives whether it be from a personal or professional (as a psychologist) perspective whilst also maintaining an excellent work-life balance for myself (including heaps of travelling!)… And, also to be the owner of more dogs (I currently only have one Siberian Husky)

Meet Your 2017 Shack Tutoring Coordinator

Hi, my name's Amelia and I'm the Shack Tutoring Coordinator for 2017! I'm about to begin my final year of my Science/Law degree, and I love all things learning. When I'm not at uni, you can find me reading, doing a puzzle, or walking along the beach or at Centennial Park. 

I think tutoring is a great way to help students learn to learn and to pass on all that knowledge you cultivated over years of high school to someone who really needs it. If you feel the same, apply to be a Shack Tutor right now!
