I have worked with students from ages 10 to 22 for over seven years. I like to get to know the student and think carefully and about what they'd like to achieve. I think deep listening, empathy and careful strategy are the critical elements for successful tutoring.
I help students to develop a stronger understanding of what is expected of them for their relevant assignments and exams. I like to nurture their existing strengths and find ways of drawing on them to build confidence in other areas. I spend a lot of time focusing on grammar and expression, explaining the concepts as we go. This is critical not only in English but also in subjects such as art and philosophy, where complex ideas need to be clearly expressed.
I am available for home visits, and I've found that students work well in their own home environment. I typically do 1 hour, 1.5 hour or 2 hour sessions, depending on the student's needs and the distance I need to travel. For trips over 15 minutes away, I prefer a 2 hour session. If you are studying at ANU, we could meet on campus. If you have any special requirements for you or your child, feel free to enquire.
I have tutored in English, Art, Literature and Philosophy for over seven years, for students in year 8 up to undergraduate university students. I love tailoring my approach to the needs of the individual student to get the best possible outcome. I have a particular interest in assisting students in the challenge of writing for art and design subjects.
