I’m Matilda; a dedicated student with a passion for tutoring VCE English to people of all abilities and language backgrounds. I have an in-depth understanding of the current study designs having assisted multiple EAL students to achieve VCE success in 2017 and having completed my own VCE in the same year with an ATAR of 97.05. My aim is to improve both my student’s grades and confidence with engaging, fun and productive lessons that teach all the necessary content and develop all the required skills without the tedium of rote learning.
As a tutor I can:
Teach all aspects of the exam including argument and language analysis, text response (both comparative and non-comparative) and the listening assessment (for EAL students)
Assist you with SAC preparation including SACs which require you to create your own text (the creative written piece and oral assessment)
Guide my students through analysing texts and coming to evidence supported opinions which will form the basis of text response essays
Devise a method which suits you for tackling argument and language analysis and comparative text response essays
Prepare you for exams and SACs by reinforcing and expanding on your understanding of your school lessons
Assist you with any difficulties you face in completing set tasks
Read and offer advice for improvements on your essays
Provide extra practice for you to complete
As the student you will be in charge of your learning and I am happy to accommodate to your learning style with a structured lesson or more freeform guidance and mentoring. Please inform me in advance of what texts you will be covering so that I can prepare detailed notes on these for you to use free of charge. All of my other notes, posters and learning tools will also be available to you as an electronic format and/or hardcopy (if you prefer). Also, as one of my students do not hesitate to contact me via email or phone so that I can answer any queries you may have between lessons- this can be very valuable around assessment time!
I have a valid working with children check and live in the Box Hill North area with easy access to both Box Hill and Doncaster areas. I am only charging the base rate of $47 an hour for my in-person tutoring and am available weekends and weekday evenings.
She was very kind and really helped me improve my results.
Matilda was very quick to respond, she even asked what text my kid is studying so she can prepare beforehand. She is very friendly and accommodating.
Matilda has been very patient with our daughter and is giving her good skills to allow her to progress through her English classes. There has definitely been less complaining about English since she has started working with Matilda.
