Lyneham based ANU graduate offering tutoring for middle school and high school English courses

Methodology

Hello! My name is Zoe Knight and I am a recent graduate of a Bachelor of International Relations and I am currently undertaking my Honours at the ANU. Having been raised in many countries around the world - Portugal, China, UAE and Australia - I have a solid understanding of various teaching methods which I believe works to my advantage when tutoring. I completed my HSC at Sydney Secondary College in 2014. During my time at SSC I was head girl and achieved an ATAR of 91.05, I also ranked top 4 in 4/5 of my subjects.

During my time in high school, I benefited greatly from receiving tutoring from my high school teachers outside of class hours. Although I was achieving consistently high marks, I was losing easily earned marks through poor exam technique and essay writing. I learnt a lot and was able to successfully implement my new found knowledge in time for the HSC exams.

I am excited to share my skills and knowledge with those that may be experiencing similar concerns that I had during my time in high school. High school is a tough time for any student, and I believe that only good can come from reaching out and asking for help.

Background

I have been tutoring students since I was 17 and completing my final year in high school. I began tutoring family friends children, and my sister friends, and grew to develop a strong group of students I regularly tutored. Those I have tutored range from the young age of 12 up to the age of 18, receiving help during their final HSC year.

My strongest skill as a tutor is introducing structure to my students. By structure I mean both essay and exam technique, as well as mentoring throughout the year. I am a strong believer that organisation is the key to success, and implementing simple steps such as essay and exam practices will help every student achieve their very best. As a tutor, I am able to provide feedback on the work being produce and guide the students to ensure they remain on track and motivated.

Details
