Current neuroscience Honours student at UQ offering tutoring in English (years 7-12) including essay writing, creative writing, literacy, proofreading/editing, comprehension of literature and preparat

Methodology

I prefer to teach on-one-one as I believe tutoring must be personalised to the requirements of the student and the subject. I demonstrate theories and allow students to ask as many questions as they want before letting them approach problems themselves, with the aim of letting them make their own mistakes and learning from them. I understand how important it is for students to learn at their own pace and way; I try and adapt my teaching methods to each student’s style of learning.

Background

I graduated with a 98.8 ATAR (OP1) in 2014 and then completed two years of an undergraduate Bachelor of Medical Studies/Doctor of Medicine at UNSW before transferring to the University of Queensland to completely my Bachelor of Advanced Science (Honours). I am currently completing my Honours thesis in mental health research and will be starting my PhD at the end of the year. Additionally, I worked as an English tutor while leaving in France and Croatia for 6 months, and thus have experience working with students from non-English speaking backgrounds.
