(26 student reviews)
I have been tutoring English for 8 years now and have formulated specific essay and creative structures that can help students attain Band 6. Please feel free to have a look at my many reviews to see the positive feedback that past students and parents have left me. I differ from other English tutors due to my skills in ACTUALLY teaching you how to write an essay and constantly suggesting better ways to improve your phrasing. I have devised specific exercises that will teach you how to write topic sentences- every high school student's nightmare!
I adapt to what your teachers want and teach you accordingly. That is how and why my students and I establish such great rapport because I listen to what YOU want to achieve. I understand back to front what the HSC English syllabus wants (especially the new one!) and implement it into my teaching style so that you can trust that everything that I teach you will be according to the expected standards.
ABOUT ME: I graduated from NSW's #1 ranking selective school- James Ruse Agricultural High School and have a Masters of Teaching from the University of Sydney. I have a NESA and DET number which means I am fully accredited to teach in both private and public schools. I have an up to date Working with Children (WWCC) number registered so you can be rest assured that I am qualified both academically and professionally so that your child will be in a safe learning environment.
I like to consider myself to be very friendly and understanding towards all my students! I save and organise all my students' work so I am constantly up to date with progress. (This also means that I know will exactly what they have done within the past week for homework as I can easily compare across to last week's work)
I place 200% effort into my students so I will not be tutoring students who do not finish their homework within the given time frame or do not take their subjects seriously as I would rather use my time on other students who are at least willing to try. Students who have tutored with me have realised a dramatic improvement within only a few weeks. My track record has been very successful, with many students jumping from C's to A's within the span of a term.
I am extremely patient and understand each student's capabilities, so I will provide all relevant resources and homework for students to complete and correct all homework.
Additionally, I have tutored English for over 8 years now, with most of my year 12 students receiving Band 6 in their HSC. I have taught a countless amount of students from top selective and private schools so I have a large range of resources and experience collated over the last few years. I have taught students from James Ruse, North Sydney Boys, North Sydney Girls, SHORE, Sydney Grammar, PLC Croydon, PLC Pymble, Trinity College, Meriden School, Santa Sabina College, St. Scholastica's College, Sydney Boys, SCEGGS Darlinghurst, Fort Street High, Sydney Tech, Normanhurst Boys, Tempe High, and many more. Please feel free to read some of my reviews that students and parents have submitted.
I have also helped prepare students for Selective and Scholarship exams. 2017: 100% academic scholarships to The Kings School, SHORE, Knox Grammar. 2018: 100% academic scholarship to Meriden School for Girls. 2019: 100% academic scholarship to Ravenswood School for Girls.
I also offer tutoring in preparation for the SAT exam (English) and IELTS.
one-to-one lesson: From $110/hour depending on year level, starting from year 7
