Hi, my name is Emily Halloran and I am currently enrolled in a Dual Law Degree at University of Sydney. I completed my HSC in 2016, achieving an Atar of 99.6, and have two years experience tutoring in High School Mathematics, English and History - Modern and Ancient.
My classes are held on a 1-to-1 basis or in small groups. I am available for tutoring at the student's home or at my own home at the student's request.
I teach from a broad range of materials, including texts and exam papers, and utilise the student's own school texts and notes. I aim to first fill in the student's knowledge gaps and extend the student to their full potential. Tutoring sessions are individually tailored to the student's needs, ensuring engagement.
I am available to tutor across South-Western Sydney, Inner-Western Sydney and the Sutherland Shire.
I am also available for Online Tutoring - editing/proofreading essays, providing online resources and assistance.
I currently tutor in the following subjects:
Mathematics - Primary, Secondary (7-10, 5.1, 5.2, 5.3)
English - Primary, Secondary (7-12) (ESL, Standard, Advanced, Extension 1, Extension 2)
- essay writing
- creative writing
- topic sentences
History - 7-12 (Modern, Ancient, Extension)
- essay writing
- deconstruction of questions
Debating and Public Speaking
- preparation/writing of speeches
- key areas of debate
- analysis of key issues in debates
- presentation skills
I focus on HSC techniques in deconstructing and understanding essay questions.
Have been tutoring for 2 years in Mathematics, English and History. All students grades
have improved significantly with high satisfaction from both students and parents.
