Hey, thanks for visiting my profile! My name’s Hannah and I graduated as an Academic Scholar from Strathcona Baptist Girls’ Grammar in 2016 with an ATAR of 98.6 and am now studying Commerce at the University of Melbourne.
I attained a study score of 50 for English and would love to pass on my understanding of the course to students who are struggling to achieve results they’re happy with. English was a subject that I thoroughly enjoyed studying in every aspect of the study design and I feel that by making the course more understandable and less daunting, I can pass on my enjoyment of the subject to any student.
I believe a large part of success in this subject is knowing what the VCE examiners look for in a strong piece of writing and being able to communicate that to them accordingly. As a recent graduate and now tutor, I can provide students with useful advice on writing to meet criteria and therefore writing to achieve high results. By transferring to students my awareness of the areas where marks are often lost as well as key ways to impress your examiner that will be unique to high scoring pieces of writing, I believe I can reduce the subject to a more manageable challenge and make higher marks more within reach. This is especially helpful to students feeling overwhelmed by the broad and interpretive nature of the subject.
Some areas I am able to help with are:
- Preparation for any SAC
- Expanding vocabulary
- Familiarisation of the texts
Part of my offering includes access to my own notes and high marking SACs/essays as well as the opportunity to contact me anytime throughout the week if further help is needed.
Location, Availability and Costs
I live in the Surrey Hills area and depending on your location I am happy to come to you, or you to come to me, or to meet at a public library somewhere in between.
I am only charging $50 per one hour session and am currently available all days of the week, except Fridays. I will always do my best to accommodate my students’ weekly schedules.
I also hold a valid Working With Children check.
