VCE ENGLISH SPECIALIST (Years 11 and 12)
Melbourne tutor in English
STRUGGLING WITH VCE ENGLISH? DON'T PANIC: I CAN HELP YOU.
Parent testimonial: "We cannot thank Julie enough. In previous years, my daughter excelled in English but last year her confidence fell and her grades dropped considerably. Julie came to our aid with her extensive knowledge of English language, literature, grammar, communication and comprehension. My daughter's confidence was restored and her grades are back up to 'A'! Julie's commitment, encouragement and enthusiasm towards helping my daughter were more than we could ever have hoped for. Having had other tutors in the past I can highly recommend Julie and can honestly say she has been the most dedicated and knowledgeable tutor I have ever employed."
I am passionately committed to helping students achieve their very best for their English studies. I grew up and was educated in England, before emigrating to Australia and subsequently marrying a Polish immigrant. Enquiries from students with non-English-speaking family backgrounds are especially welcome. I am a friendly, patient tutor - but very thorough. My carefully structured one-on-one tutorials (no groups) are individually tailored to help you keep calm and focused, with emphasis on essay planning and construction, analytical skills, language analysis, creative writing, vocabulary extension and grammar correction. We focus strongly on your SACs, and I provide practice essays, as well as help you with teacher-provided practice essays. We then revise intensely before your end of year exam, and I provide a full 3-hour VCE English Practice Examination at the end of the year for those who would like to do it.
Above all, I encourage students' CONFIDENCE: I have found from experience this is the most important aspect of students' studies: most students can actually do very well in English - usually, much better than they think they can!
