Hi there! I’m Melissa. I appreciate you taking the time to visit my profile. Let me tell you a little bit about myself!
About me & my aims for you:
I completed VCE in 2015 at Kolbe Catholic College, with an ATAR score of 91.15. I have continued my studies and am completing a Bachelor of Arts, doubly majoring in Psychology and Criminology at the University of Melbourne. I have a passion for helping others and believe this comes across in the way I engage with my students. I tutor Units 3/4 Psychology, Legal Studies and Business Management.
I achieved the top study scores in my year in 4 out of 5 of my subjects. I received a 40 study score in both Business Management and Psychology and a 41 study score in Legal Studies. I did not want to achieve this simply for myself, as a one-way ticket into university – it is my goal to pass on my knowledge and study tips to future students and help lighten the burden of VCE for you. I aim to ensure my students are knowledgable in all aspects of their subject, ensuring they are fully prepared for SACs and exams, as well as to provide support throughout the year.
I love Psychology, and thoroughly enjoyed Legal Studies and Business Management when I was studying them myself. I believe my passion and energy for my subjects is evident in the way I engage with my students and helps to motivate them to want to succeed. My aim is not simply to help you to be the best – my aim is to help you achieve the goals you as an individual have set for yourself, with a focus on getting you into the course you desire. With this in mind, you may surprise yourself with just how well you perform throughout the year.
I understand that the content for Legal Studies and Business Management can be somewhat boring. Many students also find parts of the Psychology course quite dry. Thus, I aim to hold my lessons in as fun and engaging a way as possible to inspire my students to really engage with the subject, and thus, improve their results.
I am familiar with Units 1/2 and Units 3/4 Psychology, Business Management and Legal Studies, and am able to provide my students with:
- Effective study tips
- Comprehensive study notes
- Practice SACs and suggested answers
- Practice exams and suggested answers
