Mr Hamish Adams


Melbourne tutor in English, History, Latin

I travel to these locations
Melbourne CBD, Kew, Sandringham

Hi all, I received an ATAR of 99.95 in 2016 and am now offering Latin tutoring, for which my score was 47 raw. I can also provide English assistance (score of 50 and a Premier's Award) and History: Revolutions (score of 50 and a Premier's Award) assistance for those interested.

I graduated as Dux of Xavier College, and Year 12 was easily the best year of my schooling life. I've had one successful year of tutoring so far and am eager to share my methods and approaches to Latin as well as to the VCE experience more generally.

During my studies I learnt that assessors love comprehensive understanding, and they especially love when a student can draw connections to the bigger ideas of the topic. This will be a major focus of my tutoring.

I will offer detailed essay correcting and feedback, and we will look intently at the concepts which differentiate students from the multitude whilst covering the foundations of good translation and comprehension. I am also happy to provide notes and practice tasks for this subject where useful.

I've tutored a number of students studying through the VSL and can assist in guiding them through their coursework.

I prefer tutoring at the State Library, but we can discuss other locations in the eastern or Bayside suburbs, from Kew Library to Sandringham Library. My rate is $50 an hour for individual tutoring, $30 an hour for group tutoring. Available on weekends and weeknights.

You can email me at or call 0487321124 to ask questions or arrange tutoring.

Thanks and I hope to see you soon, Hamish
