Hi! Thank you for taking the time to look at my profile.
My name is Helen Karakulak, and I am currently studying Journalism and Professional Writing and English and Creative Writing at the University of South Australia. I’ve always had a passion for writing, and throughout high school this developed and expanded to include communication, history and cultural studies, which I believe provide a foundation of skills that can be applied in all aspects of life, and not just a classroom.
As a recent SACE graduate, I achieved an ATAR of 91.25, with finalised SACE grades of an A- for both English and Modern History and A’s for both Society and Culture and Research Project, all of which aresubjects I offer tutoring for.
I am comfortable navigating the SACE curriculum and am skilled at identifying the meaning behind what can often be considered complicated criteria for a course or assignment. I would help break this down and simplify it, as I can understand that some coursework can seem overwhelming and off-putting at first. I believe that the best approach in English and Humanities based subjects is to understand the basics, and identify the required audience, context and language features necessary to help make your assignments shine, and ensure your knowledge and understanding, analysis and application of these principles receive outstanding results!
Additionally, I have acquiredthe following skills, which are significant assets I will put to good use as a tutor;
- Time management
- Appropriate referencing and/or footnoting
- Essay writing
- Essay planning
- Textual comprehension
- Text production
- Research techniques
- 24/7 email, skype and instant messaging support
- Assignment assistance and drafting
- Updated summary notes
- Practice tests and practice exams
Location, Availability and Costs:
I am available 7 days a week and will try to accommodate the best time for you. I offer both in-person and online lessons via Skype.
I can travel to you or we can determine a mutual place, such as a public library.
