Experienced English Tutor
Melbourne tutor in Creative Writing, English, English Literature, Essay Writing, History
***Fully booked for 2020*** To me, one of the most important things is helping students to feel confident about their study of English and then giving them the tools to achieve their goals. If students have lost some of their confidence, I work with them to rebuild this so that they feel positive about the subject and their ability to tackle even the most challenging tasks. I have a genuine love of learning and passion for English teaching. I also have a broad general knowledge which I enjoy sharing with my students to allow them to deeply interrogate their texts. I have worked with students with a variety of special needs including autism.
I offer one on one weekly English tuition sessions in your own home on weekends or during school hours on weekdays. I collaborate with you to develop and deliver your personal goals in English. I scaffold and support your classroom learning by helping you to break tasks down, clarify key ideas, brainstorm ideas together, plan, and provide additional notes and resources on texts including models of good writing. I will also assess your writing and give you written feedback on ways you can develop and improve.
My years of classroom teaching and tutoring have given me a wealth of teaching experiences to draw on. I have recent experience tutoring in Year 11 and 12 VCE English and am available to teach students from year 9 and upwards. Whether you are a student needing extra support or are looking to extend yourself, I can cater my tutoring to meet your learning needs. Feel free to email me today to arrange a trial lesson.
I have tutored students, with a variety of different needs and abilities, from years 7 to 12 in English. I have also taught English from years 7 to 12 in government and independent secondary schools.
