HOW I WORK:
Something I hear a lot from my students is 'this is so much easier than what was explained at school', or 'I was one of the few in my class who wrote that for the SAC and got the marks for it'. In addition to having key examination knowledge and techniques, what's equally important for students is also learning and eventually knowing HOW to study VCE Biology. I wholeheartedly believe this is one of the key attributes to all students who have achieved incredible end-of-year results. The best part of my job is seeing students actually improve, gain success and get better grades. From my experience, the amount of information schools provide can be taught differently - it can be taught in a way that allows students to remember and digest huge amounts of information more efficiently and easily; emphasizing what's actually important to know, what questions will actually come up on exams, and how to interpret questions, write concise answers and apply relevant facts to get full marks.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT (as a starting point):
✔ Compiled notes: These concise notes cover the most important details, skills and exam techniques. They have had amazing reviews and would be given to my students for FREE.
1. Relevant notes for each session and all the theory that needs to be understood
2. Sample SAC and exam questions (that are relevant to changes in the new course)
3. Exam and study techniques

✔ Probably the most important thing for students who find Biology difficult is to provide content that breaks down large amounts of information and let them know exactly what students need to understand:
1. What facts they have to know
2. What types of SAC/Exam questions there will be.
3. How to answer those questions
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
GENERAL INFORMATION:
✔ I am available 24/7 for any questions and also provide help outside the normal sessions. Students have said this was helpful especially right before going for SACs or the exam. I attempt to reply to emails or texts immediately but promise within 24 hours. ✔ Mainly tutor at Blackburn and State Library of Victoria

I offer tutoring in the following subjects:
✔ VCE Biology 3/4
✔ VCE Biology 1/2 (please note, 50% of the time I tutor the basics of Units 3/4 to students in preparation for the following year). Please feel free to inquire if you have any questions)

"A friend recommended Emma to me through this website but I only came to her about a month before my exams and honestly, those few lessons we had were a life-saver. Before I found her, I was lucky if I even got above a 30 for my study score. I basically only used her notes to study at the end and couldn't believe the score I got when the results came out. I just wished I'd found her earlier. Thank you so much Emma!"
