Adelaide University student looking to help with History and English in Adelaide

Methodology

In regards to teaching methodologies, I believe that people can be taught anything, if done in the right way. Having studied psychology, I am aware of the capacity of the short and long-term memory, and how information can best be absorbed and retained, without it being extinguished over time. With this essential knowledge, I am able to refine tutoring to emphasise only the most important information, whilst also providing extra information on a topic, so that the student can form a holistic view on a subject.

Background

I am a past secondary student and currently in tertiary education studying teaching with a Bachelor of Arts.
In my final year, I studied Legal studies, Psychology, English Literary Studies, Modern History and ICT. Within that year I received an ATAR of 97.4, and am passionate about sharing my accumulated knowledge and helping students improve/better themselves.
I am good at essay writing, and can assist with the analysis of ideas, building of an essay, and increasing the levels of sophistication of writing styles. I also an able to provide general tips and methodologies around essay structure and composition.
I have worked before with the Smith Family, assisting Primary students in increasing their reading levels, and have an understanding of the basic techniques of bettering literary skills over time. As a teacher I have also completed placements which both refined old teaching techniques and created new ones.
Additionally, during my secondary schooling, I was an avid debater and adjudicator in the Debating SA schools program, and therefore have had experience in analysing and quickly finding flaws in points and the fundamentals of an argument.
Finally, in regards to studying, I have several techniques for study that assisted me in achieving, and I'm positive can assist you as well.
I am willing to travel around Adelaide, and am located in the Eastern Suburbs.
Thank you for your time,
Alex
