QCAA External Assessment: I specialise in helping Year 12 students prepare for the External Assessment, which I marked the last four years in Queensland and for 15 years in NSW, and which I have prepared many students for both as a classroom teacher and tutor. My private students all achieved top band or second band marks this year and last year. I know how to help students target specific criteria in a discerning way. I have been teaching for more than thirty years and I am very familiar with the texts set for study. I have experience teaching all levels of English including Extension 1 and 2 in NSW and Literature, General and EALD in Queensland.

For all students of English, I can help you express your ideas more clearly and concisely. I can help develop your vocabulary and improve your expression; assist with classwork; and assist with preparation, scaffolding, drafting and polishing Assessment Tasks. I can proofread, edit, and make more concise and fluent anything, including tertiary assessments and High School Maths and Science Assessments, AND show you how to do it.

Experience

I have experience as a High School English specialist teacher for over thirty years with 15 years in NSW and 15 years in Queensland. I have taught in both disadvantaged government schools and private schools, retiring recently due to ill health. I have been tutoring as well since I first started teaching and in the last two years I have been tutoring full time. I currently teach students from Year 3 to tertiary to adult, but I specialise in High School as that was my career. I have expertise in the Queensland ATAR system and preparation for the EA. I have marked the EA for 4 years, I have experience as a GAMSAT marker (3 years), and HSC marker (15 years).

"Our child is dyslexic and was barely passing Yr 12 General English. We were concerned he wouldn't pass the external exam as he doesn't do well without huge amounts of editing and support. After tutoring he was much more confident and achieved a 22/25 on the external exam. We are grateful to Tracey for her expertise and teaching skill."
