Hi there, my name is Heather, nice to e-meet you!
I graduated from Penleigh and Essendon Grammar School back in 2008 obtaining scores of 41 in English, 40 in Art, 42 and Visual Communication & Design, and an overall ENTER score of 91.55. I continued my studies from 2009 through until 2013, completing both a Bachelor and Masters Degree in Landscape Architecture, at RMIT University in Melbourne (highly regarded and very competitive for its design courses in particular).
I have worked for the better part of the last 6 years as a Landscape Architect, initially travelling overseas for two paid internships in the US and then working in Melbourne at several private consulting practices. Recently I have made the move into the government sector, where I am developing skills in Project Management, Community Engagement and Urban Design for a local Council.
I am passionate about learning and teaching, having come from a family of teachers, I think it is in my blood! I have taught as a sessional university tutor at RMIT and look forward to continuing to help many other students achieve their goals through LearnMate tutoring. As well as my expertise in the areas of Art, Visual Communication and Design and English, I can also assist with middle school level History & Geography, and any primary school coursework.
I strongly believe that curiosity and determination are two of the most important skills to cultivate for success in the modern world. In my experience the enthusiasm of passionate teachers is contagious, and builds a love of learning that extends beyond the classroom. I hope to inspire this within my students, to help them excel both in their immediate studies and any future endeavours.
My approach is to cater my assistance to the individual needs of the student, aiming to help them not just to comprehend the curriculum but also providing guidance in building independent learning skills and helping to structure a study approach that works for them, to serve them further into their future. I am an engaging, confident, friendly and enthusiastic tutor.
