“Being a teacher is one of the most rewarding roles I have ever undertaken and one I take with great sobriety. Whilst sometimes viewed as the wishy-washy subject that lacks structure compared to its science counterparts, when taught properly, English can give students the confidence to excel. English has a strong foothold in every career so it is my greatest endeavour to cater to every students’ individual learning style and truly give them an appreciation for English literature that will last long after their years of schooling.”

“As a tutor, I endeavour to not only pass on the knowledge required to achieve academic success, but also an appreciation for the most important aspect of school that many students tend to overlook:learning. Mathematics in particular is a subject that has persistently been the bane of many students, however a fundamental understanding of this universal language is integral in all careers. Through my passion and guidance, I wish to empower students to develop hardworking ethics which will stay with them long after high school.”

“Throughout school, I attended English tutoring (at the In-Tuition centre) and also tutoring for other VCE subjects several times a week to further expand my knowledge. I found that tutoring was incredibly valuable and is the reason why I am motivated to provide educational assistance to students and help them achieve their academic goals. As I attended a disadvantaged high school, I understand the difficulties and lack of resources some students may face. I will use my personal experiences, knowledge and skills to help all students with their studies. In particular, English is a compulsory subject and it is therefore vital that students have an in-depth understanding of this subject and are able to develop their writing skills to suit any topic given to them. “

After my own academic successes, I am compelled to share what I believe are the skills and strategies that can lead any student to success. My prefered areas of maths and science can be daunting for some, but I believe through my passion and sensitivity as a tutor, I can foster a deep understanding and appreciation of these subjects, ultimately leading to my students’ academic success.
