As a specialist VCE English and EAL (English as an Additional Language) tutor, I am committed to help students gain confidence in themselves and achieve their best results!
Hey there! Thanks for visiting my profile!
I’m Lisa, a specialist English tutor with over three years’ experience tutoring VCE and high school students. I am completing my final year of training to become a registered secondary teacher, with qualifications in English and Humanities.
As a 2016 VCE graduate with an ATAR of 96.3 and an English study score of 45, I am passionate about helping students achieve their goals and encouraging them to reach their full potential despite any disadvantages or setbacks.
While English comes naturally for some, VCE can be difficult for students whose skills are not up to scratch with the rest of their class, especially when English is not the primary language in a student’s household.
Coming from a non-English speaking background myself, I know how difficult it can be without a family that can help with essays, analysis, and other aspects of VCE English.
I have over three years’ experience tutoring VCE English and EAL students, and have proudly witnessed both academic and personal confidence growth in each and every one. I also have experience working with students with a range of different backgrounds, abilities, and goals through my continuing training to be a professional teacher. These have included intensive teaching placements at a Victorian special development school and an elite secondary school in China.
I am also very familiar with the VCE English and EAL curriculums, as well as the overall VCAA curriculum through my tertiary studies.
In my lessons, I engage students to not only understand course material, but also develop skills that will enable them to become self-sufficient and gain confidence in their studies and in themselves.
Some ways I can help students are;
- Essay planning and writing
- Familiarisation of texts, themes, and concepts
- Text analysis and analytical, comparative thinking
- Building up and extending vocabulary
- Reading and listening comprehension (EAL)
- SAC preparation and time management
MY LOCATION, COSTS AND AVAILABILITY!
I am currently available most days of the week and will be more than happy to accommodate to my students’ schedules.
