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 had dropped considerably. Julie came to our aid and with her extensive knowledge in English language, literature, grammar, communication and comprehension, my daughter's confidence has been 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 with 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 ahead, with focus 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 SACs 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 exam toward the end of Year 12.

Applications are now welcome from current Year 10 and 11 students for a short holiday tutorial program between now and February: 3 or 4 tutorials, comprising VCE preparatory work on aspects such essay planning and construction, remedial grammar, expression and vocabulary. These are individually structured to each student's needs, and are designed to set you up for your studies in Year 11 or 12.

Looking forward to maybe working with you!
