Hey Crish. Welcome to ATAR Notes!

People will have different opinions on this, but IMO tutoring isn't necessary to get a really high ATAR, no. That's not to say that it can't be beneficial for a lot of people and can help people boost their marks (I think it can be) - I just don't think it's necessary (or even feasible) in all circumstances.

If you're keen to try out a tutor or tutoring service, then that's great, and I think it's worth investigating further if that's what you want to pursue. Tutoring can provide an advantage insofar as having access to additional resources, or more structured study times, or assistance from somebody with whom you connect, but all of these things come at a (literal) cost, and whether or not the tutoring is right for you will be a personal thing. Getting tutoring won't instantly improve your marks.

Rambled a bit there but hope it makes some sort of sense. Good luck!
