Hi there, I’m Freya. Thank you for stopping to a look at my profile!
I am an IB History tutor (SL & HL) and I completed the IB in Melbourne in 2011 with a score of 41 (98.7 ATAR), gaining a 7 in HL History, as well as achieving an A for my Extended Essay in History. I have recently completed a Graduate Certificate in History (2018) with an 83.75 average from the University of Melbourne, and I have a Bachelor of Arts in Linguistics and French, also from the University of Melbourne (2015).
I am a friendly, enthusiastic and passionate person who loves history, and I love sharing my knowledge with other people. I have tutoring experience from various volunteer jobs, including after-school homework support services, and at my current job I have experience as a teaching assistant in training workshop formats.
Having completed IB History myself, I understand the importance of devising effective learning strategies tailored to your own personal way of learning, in order to make the content digestible and your workload manageable. I also understand the importance of developing and fostering strong essay-writing skills, research, analytic and argumentative abilities, and of being familiar with the key criteria that examiners look for when marking assessments in order to maximise your chance of success.
I still use the effective techniques that I learnt from the IB in my studies today, including during my recent Graduate Certificate in History, which has also provided me with further knowledge and skills that I can pass on to you. I would love to help you learn these skills and devise the strategies you need to succeed in IB history, and can also help you with anything from navigating internal assessments or your Extended Essay (if taken in History), to proofreading, practicing essay-writing, memorising content, and providing feedback on drafts and assessments.
Please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions!
