Hello and thank you for viewing my profile.
I’m Olivia and I tutor in English, including Year 11 & 12 Advanced and Extension 1 English. I achieved an ATAR of 91.65 in 2018, with a score of 91 in Advanced English. I’m currently undertaking a Bachelors of Speech Pathology at Australian Catholic University (currently in my second year), which I enjoy immensely. I hold a valid Working with Children’s Check and Police Check.
English has always been one of my favourite subjects. I find it interesting to take what can sometimes be a menial stimulus or a question and find my own twist and unique lens to approach it. I hope that through tutoring, I can encourage students to find the same passion that I hold. I want to help all my students find their own voice, building robust pieces of writing with strong quotes and techniques.
My top priority is to help students navigate the syllabus or criteria before them in an easy, approachable way. It is through my guidance that I seek to aid students to find clarity in what can come across as stressful or difficult ideas.
I’ve had previous experience with marking essays, paragraphs and creatives pieces for both my own peers and students.
MY LOCATION, COSTS AND AVAILABILITY!
My tutoring is provided through Skype lessons in combination with a shared Google Drive so we can collaborate and work together in real-time. The Skype lessons are $50 per hour.
In terms of availability, feel free to contact me and I will organise a time that will suit both the student and myself.
Each lesson is flexible to suit what the student feels they’d like to work on – whether that would be drafting a thesis platform, breaking down criteria for an essay or studying techniques within a text.
Thank you for deciding to read my profile, please feel free to contact me for more information.
Olivia has been a great help for my son Tom. She is able to teach him the most important concepts in English and provide him with lots of resources to improve his understanding and writing skills. Olivia is patient, she tailors lessons to suit Tom’s needs and makes each lesson a unique experience that he enjoys. Tom’s English has improved a lot over the past few months. I would highly recommend Olivia to anyone who wants a great English tutor.
