About Abbey


Hi there! Thanks for visiting my profile. My name is Abbey and I graduated from Glen Waverley Secondary College in 2015 with an ATAR of 99.70. In 2019, I will be tutoring English Language (50 & Premier’s Award), Global Politics (50 & Premier’s Award) and Legal Studies (50). I am currently undertaking an Arts/Law double degree at Monash University, with a major in International Relations and a minor in Linguistics. As a result, my university studies serve to complement the content that I tutor, meaning that I am extremely passionate about what I teach. I would love to pass on the knowledge I have acquired to future VCE students in order to assist them to reach their full potential in these subjects.

Making sure my students fully comprehend all aspects of the curriculum is my top priority and this is achieved by teaching my students in a fun, studious and engaging manner. I’m a strong believer that trust, honesty and friendship are crucial in the tutor-student relationship, not only to achieve great results, but in order to give my students the confidence to challenge and question ideas, and to think critically and independently.

Further to this, I am extremely passionate about these three subjects and I believe this was a key factor linked to my success. I would love to share my enthusiasm and engagement with my students, in order to assist them to discover their own passion and desire to learn in these subjects. Many students often remark that textbooks and course materials are quite dry; therefore, my mission is to show my students how these subjects link to everyday life, and how they can be applied to real world situations. Not only will this make learning more enjoyable, it will assist to consolidate knowledge of the overall ideas underpinning the course in all three subjects.
