As an experienced private tutor & proofreader, I offer a variety of services to students preparing for their VCE, tertiary or private studies. Having taught languages privately for over six years, I understand how students learn in different ways and have experience tailoring my lessons to meet the needs of my students.
I have graduated from my Bachelor of Arts at the Univeristy of Melbourne, majoring in Politics and International studies and Italian, whilst completing a concurrent Diploma in Languages specialising in French in 2016 before going on to complete an Honours year examining Italian linguistics and politics where I graduated with an H1 (High Distinction Average ). As a result of my studies, I currently teach undergraduate Italian at La Trobe University (February 2018 to present).
In addition to my aforementioned majors, I also have experience learning Spanish, Greek, Chinese & Arabic. These studies have provided with advanced knowledge of languages and linguistics and they way in which they work. Whilst I have a strong grammar basis in both Italian and French, I also excel at teaching skills relating to language studies, in particular those relating to the 'dreaded' oral exam. The combination of these elements allow me to provide Italian and French students with the best chance of receiving the highest marks in their VCE studies.
Whilst I am happy to work 1on1 with students, I also have experience in a classroom environment as a return tutor at VCE Summer School run by the Univeristy of Melbourne Student Union (2014-2018) and at tutorial centres managed by ATAR Notes 2017 to present
I am also currently the LOTE lecturer and author for ATAR Notes, lecturing VCE students studying a second language on language acquisition, LOTE study skills, and helping them prepare for both the Written and Oral exam. Additionally, I am also the convenor for the TuteSmart 2018 French program as well as an English 1/2 and 3/4 tutor.
In addition to tutoring, I usually provide worksheets and notes to students as part of the tutoring process.
I am also happy to tutor - English (VCE, Primary & Secondary, & ESL)
- LOTE Skills- ie. Oral examination preparation (all languages)
- Essay Writing (including proofreading)
- History - Politics.
I prefer to tutor at the University of Melbourne or surrounding areas (CBD). Travel in this area can be discussed. I am also available for group tutoring and online help (Skype).
