Dr Julie Ann Zabinski



Melbourne tutor in English

Parent testimonial: "In previous years, my daughter excelled in English but unfortunately during this last VCE year her confidence fell and her grades dropped considerably. Julie came to our aid and 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 and 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 intensively on SACs and examination preparation, and I provide practice SAC essay topics where required, as well as a full 3-hour VCE English Practice Examination at the end of the year. Above all, I encourage students' CONFIDENCE: I have found from experience that this is the most important aspect of students' studies: the vast majority of students can actually do very well in English - often, much better than they think they can!

$60 Fee includes: Tutorial preparation and delivery (75 minute tutorials); extensive text resources; all telephone and email communications, weekly homework set and marked. Full 3-hour practice VCE English exam toward the end of Year 12.

Looking forward to maybe working with you!
