Hi there! I’m Georgia, an adaptive and zealous tutor for both primary and secondary students. Thanks for visiting my profile and seeking more information on how I can help you reach any academic goal you’ve set.
I offer tutoring for the following senior subjects: VCE/QCE English (Study score 48/ VHA 8), VCE/QCE Modern History (Study Score 47/ VHA 7) , VCE/ QCE Drama (Study Score 50/ VHA 10), VCE/ QCE English Literature and Sociology (although these subjects were not offered at my high school, I am pursuing both as my major and minor respectively within my Arts degree, and have strictly received high distinctions for both thus far). I also offer the following subjects for years 7-10: English, History, Drama, Biology (Study Score 47/ VHA 7).
Having completed high school with an ATAR of 98 at the age of 17, I commenced my double degree of Arts and Science at Monash University in 2018. I am now entering my second year, majoring in Literary Studies and Evolutionary Genetics. During my time at high school, I collected 4 top of subject awards for the following authority subjects: English, Modern History, Drama, and Biology, as well as several academic bursaries. My motivation and learning ethic awarded me the Vice Chancellor’s Scholarship for Excellence; a scholarship I work diligently to retain.
What prompted me to tutor is my intrinsic belief that knowledge is power, and every young person should strive to learn for the betterment of themselves and those around them. I have a particular passion for English and humanities, and I operate with the understanding that unlike STEM subjects which hinge on black and white concepts, humanities exist in the grey area. To guarantee success no matter the task, I’ve worked closely with education professionals to determine what each assessment piece requires in terms of understanding, interpretation, analysis, comparison and explanation. I also acknowledge that studying itself is a skill that requires practice and discipline, so I have a catalogue of tips and tricks that will help you approach content efficiently and effectively.
What I provide
- Interpreting and deconstructing texts (even the most convoluted Shakespearean play)
- Identifying explicit and implicit meanings
- Efficient note taking
- Structuring and writing essays (comparative and expository) / short stories/ monologues/ speeches
- Improving grammar, punctuation, structure, and vocabulary
- Synthesising a thesis
- Analysing texts to find relevant and strong evidence to support a thesis
- Exam preparation incl. QCS test (Queensland students: I received an A for the 2017 QCS test)
- Constructing comprehensive research journals
- Explaining referencing and citation
- Phone and email support 7 days a week!
I also hold a valid Working with Children Check.
I have first-hand experience with how gruelling study can be, so I’m more than happy to work our tutoring sessions around whatever schedule you have. Just let me know and we can make it happen!
MY LOCATION, COSTS AND AVAILABILITY!
I currently live on campus at Monash University, so a session at any of the Clayton campus facilities is absolutely ideal.
