The spread of subjects I have taught means that I have learned to be useful to a wide variety of students and attend to their varying abilities and needs. With a background in language teaching and learning, it is easier for me to empathise with students who may not have English as their home language.
With experience teaching Philosophy – which requires attention to logic and proper argument structure – as well as Drama, and coaching debating teams, I can help you with your preparation for Oral Presentations.
Prior to entering teaching, I worked in the printing and publishing industry, where effective proofreading is a must. This also means proper attention to good grammar and fluent expression.
My task is to turn you not only into a capable English student, but also a capable student overall, so we will also look at study skills and thinking skills in general. The hard, but vital aspect of VCE English is learning concepts. We will cover the concepts that are especially vital for success in the subject.
