Miss Melinda Walsh

Five Dock, Sydney

Sydney Tutor in Creative Writing, English, English Literature, ESL, Essay Writing, Reading

My name is Mel and I am a final year International and Global Studies student at the University of Sydney. For over a year, I have been helping students from Year 5 - 12 improve their English skills. For your child, I can create a personalised plan focusing on improving their weaknesses and consolidating their strengths.

My Background:
I graduated from PLC Sydney in 2014 with a Band 6 in English and an ATAR over 90. While in Year 12, I represented Australia at the World Individual Debating and Public Speaking Championships in Lithuania and was selected as a School Prefect. Drawing upon these experiences, I can assist your child in time management and incorporating study into challenging schedules.

For the last 2 years, I have been coaching debating at a prestigious Sydney school, working with children of all ages to improve their public speaking, critical thinking and argument structure. As part of this job, I have received a Working With Children Check and a Certificate of Communication.

English Assistance for Primary and Early High School:
Within these formative years, it is important that fundamental skills are developed and strengthened. I can assist your child by identifying weaknesses and building upon teacher recommendations to improve skills such as:
- Spelling - Grammar and punctuation - Drawing inferences from texts - PEEL/ TEEL/ PETAL paragraphs - Creative writing - Textual analysis.

Year 11 and 12:
For students in Year 11 and 12, I will respond to their goals and objectives by:
- Helping them to create a study plan
- Providing assistance with textual analysis - Providing recommendations for related texts - Assist with the construction of a piece of creative writing - Identifying any other skills that may need improvement to achieve goals.
