American university graduate gives English lessons to high school and uni students in Adelaide

Methodology

Hi, my name is Zeph Webster. My philosophy as an educator is that it is my duty to endow you with the skills to perform academically at the highest possible level, and to help you make the most of your education. I believe that literature, writing, philosophy, and English studies are valuable subjects which help us engage in the world and provide insight that we might not otherwise have. My methods are to balance the microscopic needs with the macroscopic; by this I mean that we will work on both day by day, particular needs, while also working to develop more long-term skills for a better and more permanent understanding of subjects. A typical lesson will of course be fluid, depending on the particular needs of the student, but we will generally start by taking practical steps to completing current assignments, and when areas of non-understanding come up we’ll work to fix those.

Background

I'm a writer from the U.S., a graduate from Illinois State University with a bachelor's in arts, a major in English and a minor in philosophy, and over the course of my educational career I've developed a talent and a passion for learning and teaching. While I'm new to private tutoring I've always had a passion for teaching, and through school programs and social groups I have had significant and consistent experience in work shopping and tutoring. Through my own education I've developed particular skills in essay writing, in literary, philosophical, and historical analysis, and other subjects including but not limited to: research, rhetoric, linguistics, grammar, creative writing, communication, public speaking, and presentation skills.
