Hi! My name is India, and I’m a first-year Law/International Relations student at the Australian National University. For my VCE (at Star of the Sea College), I obtained study scores of 47 in German, 45 in Global Politics, 45 in History: Revolutions, and 43 in Literature. Overall, my ATAR was 98.5.
My skills as a tutor come from my genuine interest in the subjects I tutor and my understanding of what it takes to do well in senior school, particularly in VCE. I really love being able to thoroughly discuss and analyse these subjects with students, and I seek to impart this enthusiasm to my students, which will further their own comprehensive understanding of the subject. I believe I can provide support to students, and be a motivating presence in their learning!
I am also able to tutor young children in German as I have experience working with primary school-aged children from my work as a teacher’s aide at a German Saturday school. Because of this, I have a Working with Children’s Check.
I conduct tutoring mainly online, as I am located in Canberra during the university semester. However, I will be available for in-person tutoring during the holidays (contact me for more info)
My tutoring approach:
When tutoring, I like to determine what areas a student needs help with and where I can develop their strengths. This way I can base lessons around filling the gaps in their knowledge/skills, as well as fine-tuning their strong points.
My tutoring will not only cover coursework but also exam/test structure and techniques to approach exams strategically.
Lessons will consist of:
conceptual discussions about themes and topics of the subject
Exercises/Activities based on what the student wishes to focus on (E.G. going through practice questions, breaking down a particular concept together)
For German: Speaking/Conversation practice, as well as exercises around grammar and comprehension.
Through this, we can develop both a theoretical understanding of the subjects, as well as an ability to apply the knowledge practically.
I will provide:
Comprehensive, as well as summarised notes for the topic
My own online flashcards that I have developed for memorisation
Diagrams tailored to the individual student
My own revision/study programmes and techniques
