Private English Tutoring - Raw 50 English and VCE Premier's Award

Melbourne tutor in Creative Writing, English, Essay Writing, Reading

(10 student reviews)

Please note: I only provide tutoring through Zoom.

I graduated from Xavier College in 2020 with an ATAR of 99.15, a perfect score of 50 in VCE English and the elusive VCE Premier's Award. I offer private English tutoring classes, and help students prepare for their selective school scholarship entrance exams.

As the only compulsory VCE subject, English is a beautifully complex subject that cultivates critical thinking, aesthetic appreciation and creativity. However, despite my success in the subject, I understand the difficulties of VCE English – of having to compose 3 essays of approximately the same length within 3 hours with nothing more than a dictionary and memorised quotes. As a tutor, I work holistically to guide my tutees to “analyse rather than summarise, ” to read between the lines of theirs texts to develop unique and philosophical insights that allow them to write with the flair required to attain high A+ standards.

I even work with international students, such as those living in Tokyo, Japan, Taipei, Taiwan, Guangxi, China, Nha Trang, Vietnam and Medina, Saudi Arabia. Many of my students have experienced tremendous improvement in their writing skills and have maintained high A+ SAC scores. My reviews attest to this.

I would be honoured to form fruitful rapports with my tutees and guide them through the stressful, yet wildly exciting years of high school. No matter if you are a keen student eyeing that raw 50, or if the sound of William Shakespeare sends cold shivers down your spine, I am certain that my assistance will lead you towards VCE success!

I empathise with my year 12 students. I know that VCE is difficult. However, put the effort in - work with me - and hopefully, you, just like I was, will be pleasantly surprised on some December morning at 7 am by how greatly rewarded you will be, for your persistent determination and dogged tenacity.



In 2021:

I have privately tutored more than 25 students, ranging from year 6 to year 12 students. Working with Penn English College and my previous high school, I have also run seminars for VCE students in large groups.

In 2022:
1 student received scholarship offer from Methodist Ladies' College (MLC)

1 student received scholarship offer from St Catherine's School

1 student received scholarship offer from Fintona Girls' School

100% of female students received scholarships to elite private schools

"Johnny is possibly one of the friendliest and nicest people I have ever met. Having him as a tutor was exceptional. He supported me, was always available when I needed it, gave me confidence, and most importantly made my results go through the roof. He is knowledgeable, insightful, and understanding of the pressures of schooling life. I would 100% recommend Johnny to anyone looking to improve in English, he seriously is the best in the business and you genuinely will not find a better bloke."
