So I called this place , willing to fork out the big bucks because I heard they were good, and they practically told me that they don’t tutor people from the school I went to. Like what the hell lol? They said they only take kids from a small number of top schools (probably to keep their numbers on top since those kids will perform regardless), and when I tried to enquire further , the receptionist shut the phone in my face.
Anyone had any experiences with this place? Seems they only cater for the elite and sack everyone else. Was very cut by the call lol. Anyone know a place that does similar text-specific tutoring with analysis notes and material ?

if enough people from your school sign up i think they open a class.
what they do is they assign a tutor to a specific school's students so that someone very familiar with the school's texts and assessment tasks tutors the students.

some other places do this as well since it's more effective.

In my opinion Delta is quite overrated and expensive, save yourself the hassle (and the money) and go to a private tutor. They offer guidance and help in regards to planning and writing your essays. English also requires a personalised approach unlike maths or science, so that's another reason why should consider a private tutor. Honestly, I was initially drawn in by Delta's offer of 'unlimited one-to-one lessons' supplementing their group tuition which catered to students from my school. During the interview process Delta conducts with students THEY are willing to tutor (ironic since students go to tutoring to get better but Delta only tutors students from top schools who are likely to perform well anyways), I found out that 'unlimited' lessons ≠ unlimited lessons, you have to pay a deposit that you don't get back unless you attend Delta until the end of your HSC and students from my school that went to Delta did not achieve the results they wanted made me contemplate utilising Delta's services to improve my marks in HSC English. The severe lack of flexibility regarding the one-to-one classes coupled with the exorbitant fees for classes made it clear that Delta was simply not worth it.

Thanks for the info , I was just taken aback by the fact that you go to a tutoring centre to get better , but when I mentioned my school name the receptionist was just like sorry we don’t offer tutoring to your school with no real explanation.

I feel as though this an issue with the training of the reception/administration, although this is obviously going to be reflective of the Principal of the centre. It is understandable for a tutoring centre to be unable to cater for a student because their school does texts that the tutors are not familiar with, but is it not basic manners to simply explain this to the student/parent in question?

I'm only saying this because I've had a few of my current students that I'm teaching have some pretty bad encounters with delta; I don't think a place is worth even a cent, no matter how well they know their English texts, if they can't find any sense of respect for those who don't come from a typically "good school" ... just a thought.

I read in another thread that the reason delta is so expensive is because they pay their tutors top dollar because they all state ranked?
