Hello! Thank you for taking the time to read my profile.
I tutor the full suite of English subject areas for junior and senior secondary schools throughout Australia, from essential or everyday English through to extension English and literature.
I completed my own schooling in Queensland and have subsequently completed a Bachelor of Arts (European Studies) with Honours (Australian Literature) and a Masters by research (M.Phil) in Media and Communications. I have lectured and tutored at the University of Queensland, Queensland University of Technology, and the University of Southern Queensland in Media and Communications, Cultural Studies, Literature, and academic literacies subjects.
I am working towards a post-graduate teaching qualification with a secondary specialisation in the learning areas of English and Film, Television, and New Media.
I help students understand the fundamentals of writing–from grammar and punctuation to overall structure–and develop their critical thinking and research skills, which are key to improving academic performance in English and other writing-based subjects.
I provide students with an initial assessment of their abilities; then together, we devise a program to develop those skills that need improvement for sustained success in assignments and exams.
