I’m a 19-year-old student at UNSW, currently studying a Bachelor of Media and Arts. I completed the HSC in 2017 with an ATAR of 89.15, achieving a 91 for Drama and an 86 for Advanced English, and for Extension English 1 and 2 a 43 and 41 respectively. I was ranked first internally for all my subjects.
My goal in tutoring is to teach my students how to become natural and confident in their writing, imparting the knowledge that writing essays and creative pieces can be easy (and even enjoyable) as long as they know how to navigate them.
For English subjects, I believe there are fundamental skills that simply aren’t taught properly by most school teachers, and the development of these skills can raise a student’s writing quality immensely no matter their current level. By focusing on these key strategies for writing critically and creatively and cultivating a deep understanding of what is required in the HSC’s marking criteria, I’m convinced that even a student with a dislike for English can grow to be immensely confident and passionate about studying it.
Furthermore, as a creative individual who undertook several major works during Year 12, I can provide a plethora of strategies for time management and how to effectively develop projects over an extended period of time – specifically in the area of drama where I received a Band 6 for my film major work and group performance.
Beyond all is my drive to tailor to the specific needs of each student, and this is what I hone in on with my teaching. Adapting to each individual is key and I am happy to alter lesson plans to truly assist students in the ways that they require by picking up on what they’re struggling with and building their confidence so that they can ace their exams and assignments.
