Hi! Thanks for visiting my profile.
My name’s Henry. I have a passion for learning and sharing my knowledge with others. Particularly, I love the satisfaction of helping others achieve results that they never thought possible. I love tennis, soccer and footy and I am very interested in International Politics and History.
Qualifications, personal attributes and experience
I achieved an ATAR of 99.65, with a study score of 50 and a Premier’s Award in Philosophy, as well as study scores of 46 and 47 in Global Politics and English respectively. I am currently undertaking a Bachelor of Arts degree at Melbourne University. As a current VCE Global Politics tutor, I have been tutoring a student in this subject for 6 months.
If you hire me, I will do my absolute utmost to ensure that you achieve success and just as importantly in my opinion, develop a love for your chosen discipline. I have an absolute passion for Philosophy and Global politics and I believe that this will help me provide you with an excellent educative experience. In addition, I am friendly, hard-working and a good communicator.
I have been told that Global Politics and Philosophy can be overwhelming subjects, with their huge quantities of subject material. What I can do however, is to filter through the masses of subject material, providing you with the essential information that you must learn to succeed.
So far this year, I have already helped my student turn his SAC results around from B+ to A+ levels.
What I can help you with:
For Global Politics I can provide you with help in the following areas.
-General challenges to state sovereignty
-NGOs and Non-governmental Organisations and their effect on state sovereignty (I studied Greenpeace and the Sinaloa Cartel)
-Transnational Corporations and their effect on state sovereignty
-Power and national interest in the Asia Pacific from an American Perspective
Ethical Issues: Human Rights (Conflict in Darfur Case study), Arms Control (North Korea and Iran case studies)
Crisis 1: Interstate warfare (US invasion of Afghanistan), Intrastate warfare (Syrian Conflict)
Crisis 2:State and non-state terrorism (Al Qaeda and Syrian government state terrorism)
Concept and application of the ‘Just War’ principle
*If you are studying any of the following areas, please contact me for help.
-Nagasena and Santideva
*If you are studying any of the following philosophers/texts, please contact me for help.
-I am happy to assist with Language Analysis and in correcting any essays.
Availability, Cost and Location
Throughout the week, I am happy to answer any urgent questions that you may have, over the phone, or over Facebook. Where applicable, I will also endeavour to give you free notes and essays.
I live in North Melbourne and am available most late afternoons/nights and and most times throughout the day on weekends (please see my availability on my profile). Depending on your location, I am happy to come to you, or you can come to me or we can event meet at a public library somewhere in between.
There are times where I may need to modify tutoring times, but I will do my absolute best to accommodate you into my schedule.
My service will cost only $50 per hour, and in return for this, I will try my best to ensure that you have an enjoyable experience and of course, succeed in all your SACs and exams.
In addition, I also hold a valid Working with Children Check.
Thanks for your interest!
