Hello there! I’m Charmaine and I am an English (43) and Business Management (44) tutor. In 2015 I graduated from Canterbury Girls’ Secondary College with an ATAR of 94.55. I am currently studying a Bachelor of Commerce at Monash University.
ABOUT ME & QUALIFICATIONS
As a fellow human being who has gone through the hardships of year 12, I understand that it can be a stressful time! I aim to offer my service as not only a tutor but a mentor to help students with managing their studies.
I aim to offer my knowledge of VCE English and Business Management and aim to help you achieve your best in the learning style that works for you.
I believe to succeed in the VCE, it takes perseverance, motivation and interest. English was not my strong point and I used to detest writing essays because of the hours of input which yielded only mediocre results. After developing an interest in my texts and the overall purpose of writing, I started to enjoy English and this marked the start of my English success. I know that many students only do English because it is a ‘prerequisite’, so I want to help students development an interest in English so that they will be more motivated to work on the subject.
I help students develop the writing skills that examiners look for in language analysis, context and text response essays. My span of knowledge and high-quality practice essays and notes that will help you to achieve the best you can in SACs, exams and tests. I will help students with note-taking, developing ideas and concepts, selecting pertinent quotes and analysing texts.
The texts I studied throughout VCE included Brooklyn by Colm Toibin, Selected Poems by Gwen Harwood, The Crucible by Arthur Miller and Year of Wonders by Geraldine Brooks and Paradise Road.
I also have worked with other texts.
I aim to support students weekly through their studies and make VCE less of a burden!
