My name is Jessika Tisdell, I am in my second year of Psychology at UON and looking for tutoring work as a casual job throughout university. I finished high school in 2016 with and atar of 99.3 and in the top 10% of my cohort and Merewether High School, with band 6s (above 90%) in all my courses.
I have 3 years of tutoring experience, working mainly with year 9-year 12 students in English but I also offer tutoring in Modern History, History ext, Society and Culture, Studies of religion and Visual Arts. Tutoring is usually weekly or fortnightly but ultimately flexible depending on the needs of the student. I'm located in the Thornton area but am happy to do home visits elsewhere and am flexible on time and location.
I also am willing to offer a mentoring service If desired, in 2016 I co-created the Student Guide Mentoring Program at Merewether High and worked as a mentor to a year 11 student to help show organisational skills, goal making, essay skills and ways of managing well-being and a school load.
