2018 was a productive and constructive year that brought new successes for Proton. We continued, for yet another year, our collaboration with the Australian Tutoring Association (ATA) which acknowledges and guarantees the highest of standards of tutoring services. This is a highlight for the year as Proton remains the first and only tutoring centre recognised by the ATA for its high quality greek tutoring services.
Proton’s Masterclasses and Seminars were a huge success in 2018. We are always pleased to read the students’ feedback and see how well our classes are received. We commit to continue working towards bringing useful Masterclasses that unlock the true potential of our students.
Proton put a lot of emphasis this year on the professional development of its tutors, in order to ensure the most contemporary, creative and reliable teaching methods. In collaboration with the Victorian Curriculum Assessment Authority (VCAA) and the University of Melbourne, we worked to create materials and programs for the continuous assessment of students, with our ultimate purpose being the differentiation of our teaching practice in order to accommodate the specific learning needs of our students.
Furthermore, Proton also explored the educational and pedagogical potential that technology provides both inside and outside of the classroom. As a result, our tutors undertook Apple and Google seminars on the educational uses of their products and platforms. These mechanisms have provided new potential and possibilities for the teaching and learning processes.
