« Jaye is an exceptional communicator, relationship builder and incredibly patient and respectful to all students from all backgrounds - attributes which make her an outstanding teacher. She has high levels of language and subject matter expertise, not only in her own understanding, but additionally in her skills and ability to distil complex concepts in political science, government, international relations and other subjects, into understandable pieces for her students. This is additionally bolstered through her extensive, international practical and academic experience. Ultimately, alongside her incredibly enthusiastic demeanour, Jaye is able to tailor lessons to the person she is working with, providing effective, long-lasting knowledge, instruction and understanding. I would wholeheartedly recommend Jaye as a teacher and mentor. »

USYD Graduate with practical experience gives lessons in essay writing and exam preparation online

Methodology

My basic premise is that anything you can say, you should be able to write. My strengths are in thematic reading of the text, literary techniques and essay writing. I usually work with the student to help them build a strong understanding of the text, and its wider historical and social content, before helping them to understand its themes and key ideas. From there I work with my students to strengthen their writing (factual or creative) and building of their own ideas on paper. I use a variety of exercises and mediums (film, poetry, novels, rap etc) to achieve this.

As writing is an ever-evolving field, I feel learning is very much a two-way process, and try to use dialogue, discussion and contextual materials and examples to build the student's understanding. I really enjoy this field and try to bring my enthusiasm, knowledge and experience to every class I teach.

Background

My name is Jaye Sergeant and I have been a private tutor for seven years, teaching over 100 students in Australia, the UK, India, Spain, Thailand, China and Turkey. In particular I have experience in exam preparation and essay writing. I have also worked and volunteered in the humanitarian sector for 10 years, focusing primarily on refugee and asylum seeker issues and education. I speak Spanish, advanced French and Portuguese and basic Turkish. In my spare time I love reading and salsa dancing.

Jaye worked as a registered tutor with Tutor In from January 2018 to December 2019. Jaye provided one-to-one home tuition for students aged 11-18 in subjects including: Maths, English, History, Geography and Spanish. Jaye received consistently excellent feedback from her students and their parents. Jaye has excellent subject knowledge in a range of core subjects. She quickly establishes great tutoring relationships with students of all levels and abilities, and from a range of backgrounds. Jaye was a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend her for future teaching or tutoring roles.
