Hey guys, thank you for visiting my tutoring profile!
My Name is Amar and I completed my HSC in 2016, attaining an ATAR of 88.95, achieving numerous band 5’s and 6’s.
I understand the intensity of the HSC and am committed to helping students achieve the best results possible in HSC English.
About Me & Qualifications
I did four units of English and achieved two band six’s in English Advanced and Extension 1 (where I scored a 92% for each) and one high band five in Extension 2 (88%).
What helped me do this was my dedication to English and consistent effort to discover new perspectives on texts and ways of thinking that aren’t necessarily taught in the English curriculum. Furthermore, the ability to constantly place myself in the shoes of a marker was instrumental in the development of my essays and creatives enabling me to tailor them to specific rubrics and questions. This has helped in my university degree (Bachelor of Psychology Honors/Bachelor of Commerce) as I am constantly applying these skills to ascertain what a marker is looking for in a piece of writing and how content influences that construction of assessment questions.
The key to English is investigating the underlying messages within texts and using this as inspiration in the scope of your literary expression, whether this be in arguing a certain point in an essay or crafting a creative that adheres to a stimulus while causing the reader to become invested in your point of view. I am more than willing to offer my notes to any students who desire them and will help students effectively organize their note taking that will support them in times of exams and assessments.
As someone who has a deep love for English, I am keen to share this enthusiasm with my students and help them do the best they can. I don’t consider English to be work or a hindrance thus I am more than happy to mark drafts of essays and creatives and help my students however possible.
I understand the stress that comes with the HSC and am determined to make the experience as enriching as possible for my students.
I am willing to tutor students of English of all ages, from primary school to year’s 11 and 12.
Location, Availability & Costs
I am available all days of the week except Monday and am willing to work around my students schedule as I understand the commitments of a year 12 student.
I charge $44 per hour and $10 extra if travel becomes a factor. I am able to tutor along the North Shore and Hornsby area.
Please contact me if you have any questions and I look forward to working with you!
