The partnership between mentors and teachers is critical to our success.
First, program coordinators initiate contact with a student's schoolteacher. The nature and purpose of the Achievers Club program is explained and the teacher's advice is sought on the student's school program, timetables and any areas requiring special attention (generally, these will be Mathematics and English).
This advice is then used to develop a tuition program. We generally use their school software programs or a number of other software packages developed for the Australian curriculum.
Teachers also provide feedback on the student's progress throughout the school year. This helps mentors understand what is working and what is not. Above all, the student sees that the teacher and mentor are working closely together to achieve their educational goals with them. In many cases, the mentor support also helps the parent to become more confident in their communication with the teacher.
