English Tutoring Program for School Aged Migrants’ Children & Int’l Students in Sydney, Australia

Children of migrants and international students from non-English language speaking countries can participate in an English Tutoring program offered in Sydney, Australia.

While Australia prides itself for being a multicultural society, the fact remains that English proficiency is a decisive factor for optimal participation in the Australian society.

This is particularly true for children of migrants coming from non‐English speaking countries, and international students from non‐English speaking backgrounds who are in Australia.

In the paper entitled "Fish out of water: refugee and international students in mainstream Australian schools" published in the International Journal of Inclusive Education in October 2012, authors Iris E. Dumenden and Rebecca English wrote, “We find that our students' habitus, conditioned by their previous schooling experiences in their home countries, did not match their new Australian schools, resulting in frustration with, and alienation from, their mainstream schools.”

In another study "The impact of international students on measured learning and standards in Australian higher education" published in the Economics of Education Review in October 2012, author Gigi Foster wrote, “International students (who are often from non-English language speaking backgrounds) perform poorly in Australian universities.

Since 1 January 2009, the Australian Government has provided funding to states and territories in Australia for the English as a Second Language - New Arrivals (ESL-NA) program.

The ESL-NA program augments the cost of delivering intensive English language tuition to qualified newly arrived primary and secondary migrant students. The program aims to develop the English language competence of migrants’ children in order to facilitate their participation in mainstream Australian society.

Children of migrants and international students from non-English language speaking countries can also benefit in private English tutoring in Australia.

In the paper “Private expectations and public schooling: the growth of private tutoring in Australia” presented to the Australian Association for Research in Education National Conference in December 2008, author Louise Watson wrote that the “average household expenditure on private tutoring is increasing.”

Watson cited the structural features of the state education systems, total household income and private school fees as factors influencing the growth of private tutoring in Australia.
