The Adelaide Tuition Centre was established in 1980. Our aim is to provide the highest quality tuition and educational products to Year 11 and 12 SACE students in Australia, as well as in Malaysia and China. We offer Year 12 revision seminars and short courses, as well as Year 11 and 12 Essentials Education workbooks and textbooks.


The Adelaide Tuition Centre established the first Year 12 seminars in Adelaide in 1986 and has helped more than 45,000 students to achieve their personal best. We offer revision seminars for Year 12 students in the Term 1, 2 and 3 school holidays. These seminars are designed for students who wish to revise key theory and concepts and to practise answering questions to examiners’ standards. Our Study Skills seminar helps to equip students with the extra skills they need to approach Year 12 with confidence and calm.

What are the benefits of seminars?

We offer class-sized sessions led by expert teachers whose goal is to help you understand the material and how it is assessed. When you sit your exams, we want you to feel prepared. You know the theory. You’ve seen questions like these before. Understanding the expectations of the examiners can make a world of difference on exam day.

Our results speak for themselves. According to student surveys (2018), students who attended seminars in at least two terms increased their grades by an average of 2 grade bands. 100% of students who attended in Terms 1, 2 and 3 increased their grades.

When will seminars run in 2023?

Our in-person Year 12 Revision Seminars are held in the Term 1, Term 2 and Term 3 holidays. As the year progresses, new sessions and subjects are added. The seminars run over both weeks of the holidays, with lots of timetable options for a flexible program.
