We understand this is a tumultuous time for many and we both hope you and your extended families are safe and well. We would like to address the everchanging Coronavirus (COVID-19) and how we are addressing this at RESN.
This is a quick reminder that it is business as usual at RESN, and we will continue to provide all of the services you have become accustomed to including all of your questions and essays. With recent school closures and online learning, it is now more important than ever to support your learning.
As always, all English, Maths, Science and Commerce subjects are readily supported by our tutors, in conjunction with Humanities and some Language courses. Anything else? Drop us a message or place your question and we will find someone to help.
We’d like to remind you that questions about how to study best at home, how to manage no-contact classes and how to overcome a stressful period are all welcomed as well! We’re here for extra support.
If you have any concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us by sending us a message on your preferred platform or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
As the world grapples with this pandemic, we hope that RESN can provide some stability to your academic year.
All the best,
The RESN Team
Welcome back to 2020!
We're very excited to be offering you free, online tutoring in 2020, just like last year! With new tutors on board and constant improvements to the portal being made, we think this year could be our best yet.
Please give our service a go by sending through a question about any of your subjects!
We're looking forward to developing a new service to run in conjunction with our question-and-answer service, so keep your eyes peeled for an update in the second half of this year.
If you have any suggestions or ideas, please let us know at email@example.com!
VCE Advice: Part 3
We have some final advice for everyone still going with exams! Our tutor Jun C has some motivating words to keep you going!
To remember that regardless of how hard you've worked over the year (or regardless of whether you have any regrets) - no one's year 12 is perfect! Also keep reminding yourself that you will most likely never have to do some of the subjects you're studying ever again, so make the most of it!
The only thing you can really ask for is to try your best in the remaining days leading up to your exams, and not giving up until the VERY LAST MINUTE of the exams as well, so that you can leave the exam hall knowing you have truly given it your all, given the circumstances.
VCE Advice: Part 2
For the second week of exams, we have some more advice for you from another one of our tutors: Jess. She says:
As long as you can walk into the exam knowing you’ve done everything you could, you should feel confident and know that the exam you produce and the score you produce you have earned. But doing everything you can does not translate to eight hour study days, it means maintaining a balance between your mental health, your enjoyment of your subjects and your commitment to your subjects. Sometimes, watching a movie or going out for a meal are necessary to ensure that the person that walks into the exam is the best version of yourself.
VCE Advice: Part 1
So... the English exam is tomorrow!
We asked some of our tutors for any advice for Year 11s and 12s approaching exams, and we got some fantastic insights... 🧡
Here’s Max with his perspective:
Towards the end of year 12 you'll face many daunting tasks and decisions: Exams, university selection, work life, independence and more await you. You might catch yourself thinking that any one of these aspects could dramatically change the course of your life. Maybe that's true. You're going to receive a lot of advice, for sure. Some might say take breaks, some might say get serious and knuckle down. Some might tell you to follow your heart, some might tell you to think with your head. There may be only one thing that can be said for sure:"Þæs ofereode, þisses swa mæg" - An old Anglo-Saxon adage. "That was overcome, so may this be". Things might not turn out exactly as predicted, you might find yourself situated in way you would have never previously imagined. But this too shall pass, like all things. Good luck.
World Mental Health Day
It’s World Mental Health Day! We understand that this time of year is extremely stressful for students, especially those in Year 12. We hope all our students take the time to have a break, think of the big picture, and be proud of the efforts they have already put in this year.

End of Term 3!
It’s the end of term 3! This means holidays for all our 7-11 students and study time for our year 12 students. Don't worry year 12s! We are here for you!! Send us any questions you have while you study and we will get back to you within 24 hours! (Also don’t forget to take regular breaks!) ❤️
R U OK? Day
Today is R U OK? Day, a reminder that a simple question can make a huge difference to the people around us.
We know that VCE can be a tough time. It’s days like today when we can take a moment to breathe, to look beyond the marks and SACs and exams, and instead take a look at our mates.
As R U OK? Day comes to a close, please take the time to check in with your friends to ask how they’re doing.
After all, we’re all in it together
