English tutoring for Melbourne VCE/high school students from a recent graduate and regional debate champion

Methodology

I am able to tutor years 9-12, but I am open to tutoring those younger. I recently graduated high school from a rural town in Western Australia, and have moved to Melbourne to attend university. I am super passionate about teaching others and watching them realise how much they are capable of. I can help with oral presentations, essay writing, short answer, text/image analysis, creative writing and exam preparation.

In terms of work, I am flexible. I can provide set tasks and required reading if you'd like, but I am perfectly happy with helping out with schoolwork and helping prepare for assessments and exams.

Our first lesson will serve as a session where I get to know you and build up an understanding of what you're struggling with and why, so that we can maximise your time with me.

Background

I have received ATAR awards in English and other humanities subjects and have been nominated for literary workshops, speech competitions and other opportunities so I know firsthand what is expected of a high-level English student.

In 2017, a girl that was failing English joined my debate team. As captain, I looked over her prepared statements and helped elaborate on her thought process, working on ways to better communicate her ideas. We managed to win in our division despite getting easily knocked out in the semi-finals the year before. She received a 79% in her final English mock exam, 1% below an A grade.
