Sydney Tutor in Creative Writing, 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.
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.

For students in Year 11 and 12, I will respond to their goals and objectives by:
