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,’’ he said.
RESN head of operations Hamish Webster said the free tutoring was being welcomed by students across regional Victoria.
‘‘This is our attempt to take a step in the right direction and even up the playing field in the lead up to Year 12 exams,’’ he said.
‘‘The RESN team all worked really hard to succeed in Year 12…now we want to help students right across the state do the best they can.’’
