Hey I'm Steph and this year I am offering private tutoring in English and/or Psychology with a focus on VCE Students undertaking Units 1 - 2 and 3 - 4.
I began tutoring at the beginning of 2016 which was my first year at university, in the hope that students would find the same passion that I have for English and Psychology. I completely understand the dread that some students feel when studying VCE English as it is a compulsory subject - there's no escaping it! However, with the right foundations set in place - and some self-belief - getting a good study score in English is something very achievable!
I have found that there is a common perception where students think 'who needs Psychology tutoring?' However, if you are studying Psychology and find that you are struggling in terms of the mountains of content or keeping up with it all, I can provide you with tips and tricks that will get you over the line. Having had a VCE Psychology teacher who was previously a part of the VCAA examiners gave me valuable insight into exactly what they are looking for when you sit that final exam.
I provide bound notes for Psychology and sample essays for English that may assist students and I firmly believe that a weekly review of what was covered in previous lessons is imperative in consolidating knowledge. After all, Year 11 and 12 can be a stressful and there is a lot of knowledge crammed into such a short span of time.
I am mostly available to tutor on weekends but can be flexible around arranging weekday sessions if required. Personally, the most rewarding aspect of tutoring is seeing the improvement in a student's work and the progression towards their end goal. I believe it is imperative to take into consideration that every student is different and I do my best to tailor my tutoring approach to what they hope to achieve at the end of it all.
I have tutored mainly VCE students (Units 1 - 4). I have experience tutoring students from Melbourne High School and MacRobertson Girls' School. 100% of my students have achieved a VCE Psychology study score over 35 and an VCE English Study Score over 30.
