Do you feel you might need support in Revs to maximise your exam performance next November? Are you chasing a high mark and thus want to be able to check your understandings and ask detailed questions with answers from an expert? Do you need help organising or remembering your work? Do you find writing difficult?
In our tutorials we can
1) reinforce your KNOLWEDGE of basic and extended CONTENT;
2) check your UNDERSTANDING of the deeper connections between events, ideas, interactions between leaders and different groups;
3) help you to strengthen your SKILLS - effective faster READING for comprehension; effective NOTE TAKING, ORGANISATION and CONSOLIDATION of exam revision materials; strategies for effective RECALL of material;
4) develop your WRITING to meet VCE assessment criteria with emphasis on SAC and Examination answer structures;
5) work on individualised tasks and activities as you need them.
6) I will mark and give you DIAGNOSTIC FEEDBACK on written tasks and practice questions.
Are you a sports person, a musician, actor, painter, chef? If so, you will know that practice or training is essential to progress. It is just the same in History. If YOU will write practice answers for me to mark and take note of and implement my feedback, you will most surely improve.

I tutor in late afternoon/early evenings Mon-Wed. I primarily tutor via Microsoft Teams, but I am prepared to travel within a 10 km radius of Carnegie to give face to face tutorials if this is desired and is possible. A small travel fee would apply. Initial contact can be made via email.

I am a passionate educator with over 40 years of classroom teaching in a range of educational settings in Australia and UK. I was Head of History and Classical Studies in a leading academic independent girls' school (2007-2016).
I have taught HISTORY - REVOLUTIONS at Units 3-4 level in the classroom for twenty years and I enjoy immensely working closely with individuals in a tutorial setting. I have tutored both boys and girls from various Victorian schools in this subject. My specialisations are the French and Russian Revolutions.
