Hey, I’m Jas. Thank you for looking at my profile!
I graduated from Dickson College (ACT) in 2016 with an ATAR of 96.3. I topped my grade in Year 12 Psychology, and was in the top 3% for English and Biology. I am now studying a Bachelor of Science (ecology major) at UTAS.
My goal is to pass on topic-specific knowledge as well as general study techniques, to help students achieve their personal learning goals.
I believe the most important part of school is learning how to learn. Thus, I will focus on learning processes and techniques in my tutoring sessions. I hope to provide a fun and friendly environment to foster a curiosity in and passion for the subject. I’m sure grades will improve as a result!
I understand that people learn in all sorts of different ways, and will account for this by adapting sessions to fit the student. The one thing I will not change is being friendly, approachable and ensuring that the sessions are fun as well as productive!
I am most familiar with the subjects English, Biology, Geography and Psychology. In particular, I offer support in the following areas:
- Writing (essay writing, report writing, creative writing etc)
- Study techniques
- Exam preparation
- Research methods
I feel most comfortable tutoring students from grades 7-10. I would be happy to take on grade 11 and 12 students, although I am not as familiar with the curriculum for Tasmanian colleges (I went through school in Canberra).
I will be on hand via phone or email 7 days a week for any urgent questions or extra help. I’m also happy to increase the number of sessions during periods where the student would like more support! I will provide all my notes and resources for the student to access at any time.
I live at 20 College Rd, Sandy Bay. I’m happy to run sessions at my place, at the student’s or online. I am available for sessions most days of the week – please see my schedule for further details. I will do my utmost to accommodate you into my schedule!
I hold a valid Working with Vulnerable Children’s Licence.
I’m only charging $40 an hour, so hit me up to get closer to achieving your learning goals!
