Hi there, my name is Miriam and I specialise in English, English Literature and Japanese. I graduated from Rosny College in 2016 with an Exceptional Achievement in English Literature, Creative Writing and Japanese, and an ATAR of 95.06. Last semester at the University of Tasmania my marks in English ranked in the top 5 per cent, and I achieved a High Distinction in Creative Writing; at Rosny College I achieved the highest marks for Japanese in my year level; in high school I won awards for Japanese speaking, and for excellence in English and Japanese.
I have a great passion for my areas of study! I hope to show you how much fun and how exciting these subjects are when you learn how to engage deeply with them.
I can help you in English with every part of the unit, including close reading and analysing a text, note taking, essay composition, preparing presentations, developing imaginative responses and exam preparation, as well as grammar and spelling, plus rhetorical and figurative techniques.
In Japanese, I can help with grammar and vocabulary, speaking and conversation, writing and kanji memorisation, reading and listening comprehension, as well as cultural studies.
MY LOCATION, COSTS AND AVAILABILITY!
I am currently based in Hobart, and can tutor in-person throughout the city and surrounding suburbs. For other locations, including Victoria, I can offer video tutoring via email invitation to Google Hangouts.
My rates are $40 per hour for English and English Literature, and $60 per hour for Japanese due to the subject’s high specialisation.
I am currently available to tutor 7 days a week. Please get in touch and we can arrange a suitable time.
Thank you for taking the time to read my profile. I look forward to helping you achieve exceptional results!
