IB and VCE English Tutoring

Melbourne tutor in English, English Literature, ESL, Essay Writing, History, Mandarin, Politics

Graduated school in 2017 with top marks in English - let me help you ace your English exams :) I'll teach you how to work the system to get great marks, & provide you with notes/sample essays.

About me:
I graduated from high school in 2017 with an ATAR of 96.75. I'm currently in the second year of my Bachelor of Arts degree at the University of Melbourne, studying Politics, and Chinese language. I've been reading and writing for as long as I can remember, and I love meeting new people, so I personally find a lot of enjoyment in sharing these skills with students.

My teaching philosophy:
I offer a highly personalised and interactive approach to lessons, combined with comprehensive provision of course materials, exemplar essays, course notes and so on. I'm strongly focused on teaching understanding rather than memorisation, and developing students' skills. That being said, I also do my best to stick like glue to students' course material and upcoming assessment; I understand the strain that a difficult subject can impose on the student and their family, and how much difference a good mark can make.
Finally, I'm really friendly and patient - I'm good at motivating people who are frustrated, overloaded, or have never particularly enjoyed their subject. I strike a balance between cajoling and disciplining students, depending on how much guidance they need.

Subject Areas:

IB English/Literature SL and HL
VCE English Language/Literature
Year 7 - 10 English
ESL English

My predominate focus is on working with students in Year 10 - 12 in preparation for their end of school exams. I'm also experienced in working with students from Years 7-9 in developing more generalised skills, and helping them to enjoy their English studies a bit more :) I've worked with several students of a non-English-speaking background, and understand how to balance course material and developing basic language skills.

Rates and availability:

$50 an hour, including messaging/email support at anytime. I'm flexible in terms of where I tutor (home, libraries, etc.), and what times.

Experience

Since graduating high school in 2017, I've worked closely with a multitude of students from Year 7 - 12. I've helped to prepare students for their Year 11/12 English exams in both the International Baccalaureate Program and VCE, providing a strong emphasis on preparing for assessment. However, I'm also experienced in tutoring students in the younger year levels of high school, and those who take English as a second language. For these students I place a stronger emphasis on teaching generalised and invaluable language skills, and creating an engaging teaching environment.

Qualifications

I graduated school in 2017 with an ATAR of 96.75, and an IB Higher Level English score of 7 (a perfect score). The English skills involved in the IB course are highly applicable to VCE as well.

I'm now studying Politics and Chinese Language as part of a Bachelor of Arts at the University of Melbourne. Politics requires high level writing and analysis skills, and Chinese continues to develop my understanding of how to teach languages.
