Hey! Thanks for stopping by. I’m Jordan, I’m from Glen Waverley. I enjoy reading, sport, making music, and spending time with family and friends!
My final year of high school was in 2015. Achieving an ATAR of 87, and the study scores of 39 in English and Psychology, I have been accepted into studying a Bachelor of Arts at Monash University where I am majoring in Psychology and International Relations. I hope to be accepted into the Bachelor of Medicine/Bachelor of Surgery at Monash or Melbourne University, once I have finished my Bachelor of Arts, with the goal of becoming a practising Psychiatrist. I really do love helping my students and seeing them improve in not only their scores but in their confidence of their abilities.
Since I completed VCE, I have kept in regular contact with my English teachers who have mentored me in becoming an apt tutor, which has certainty helped with my private tutoring in VCE English and Psychology. Moreover, my current enrolment in English and Psychology units at Monash University has further booster my understanding of the VCE English and Psychology content. Additionally, my constant communication with my ex-teachers at Caulfield Grammar School has helped me to constantly improve in my own teaching abilities and have helped grant me insight into different avenues for teaching. Every student is different and finding level ground for each and every student is something that I very much believe in. I want my students to be the best that they can be and do the best that they can. To do this, I always aim to help my students find the an efficient, effective, and manageable mode of learning to help minimise their stress and maximise their results!
English and Psychology can be quite daunting. While it can often appear quite dry and non-linear, I find that helping my students view these courses in a positive manner helps to motivate them to do the best they can. What makes a good teacher is their ability to adapt to their students, rather than force a strict routine and doctrine onto them.
In saying this, I a very confident in both subject’s course content as well as what it takes to be an exceptional, successful and confident pupil.
My areas of expertise include:
- Text response, language analysis and context writing (the three main essays of VCE English)
- Structuring study plans, unique to each high school’s approach to their English course
- Preparing students for the infamous three hour VCE exam
- Discourse analysis
- Literature analysis
- Every area of the VCE course. I am quite confident in this claim as I received an A+ in my final VCE exam and am currently sitting on a High Distinction in my Psychology unit at University (where the VCE content is covered by in far more detail).
I am available all week, except Wednesday 10am-12pm, so I am very flexible
I prefer to teach at either Monash University (Clayton), Wheelers Hill, or Glen Waverley public libraries but I am also able to do house visits or meet at an agreed upon location.
I feel as though getting quality help for VCE really shouldn’t be accompanied with the burden of draining your wallet every week. In saying this, my prices are:
- Face-to-face visits: $42
- Skype sessions: $37
- Group lessons (up to 3 people): $25 each
Additionally, I saw the great value in constantly keeping in communication with my tutors. When I was in year 12, I emailed my tutor (an old English teacher who had previously retired) every second day with a new essay and that really helped me achieve the scores that I did. If this interests you, I will commit to replying to your emails/Facebook messages/text messages every day to help keep in constant communication with you. I am a strong believer in this method as I was able to see the great results for myself! In doing this, I charge $40 per week or $15 in addition to any lessons we have.
I really do love teaching, it’s one of the few things I love doing.
I have a valid Working With Children Check and really do hope to hear from you!
Thanks for stopping by! Please feel free to send any questions my way.
