Sup­port­ing stu­dents

Seymour Telegraph - - KIDS SPEAK - Ja­cob Wilkin­son has cre­ated the Re­gional Ed­u­ca­tion Sup­port Net­work, a free, on­line tu­tor­ing ser­vice for re­gional and ru­ral stu­dents.

A free, on­line tu­tor­ing ser­vice is be­ing of­fered to Sey­mour stu­dents.

The Re­gional Ed­u­ca­tion Sup­port Net­work (RESN) is an on­line plat­form started by a group of top VCE grad­u­ates who are pas­sion­ate about en­sur­ing that all Vic­to­ri­ans, re­gard­less of where they live, can have ac­cess to high qual­ity aca­demic sup­port dur­ing the VCE.

The pro­gram is re­shap­ing re­gional and ru­ral ed­u­ca­tion, en­sur­ing lo­cal stu­dents can ac­cess high-qual­ity tu­tor­ing sup­port in all their sub­jects.

RESN is made up of a team of more than 60 vol­un­teer tu­tors ready to as­sist with ques­tions and es­says for a va­ri­ety of sub­jects.

Stu­dents sim­ply jump on­line, cre­ate an ac­count, and start ask­ing ques­tions.

❝We recog­nised that this was just not the case for re­gional and ru­ral stu­dents in Vic­to­ria, and that re­al­ity was re­ally what mo­ti­vated us to cre­ate RESN.❞ RESN co-founder Ja­cob Wilkin­son

‘‘We recog­nised that this was just not the case for re­gional and ru­ral stu­dents in Vic­to­ria, and that re­al­ity was re­ally what mo­ti­vated us to cre­ate RESN,’’ he said.

RESN head of op­er­a­tions Hamish Web­ster said the free tu­tor­ing was be­ing wel­comed by stu­dents across re­gional Vic­to­ria.
