I obtained a 50-study score for Health and Human Development and a 48-study score for Biology in 2015 (Glen Waverley Secondary College) with an ATAR 98.75. I also received two state awards and the principles award for my achievement in VCE. I graduated from Bachelor of Biomedicine at Monash University in 2018 and I’m currently pursuing Honours at Monash University Clayton.
Hi, my name is Patrizia and I graduated from high school long ago, long before they had ATAR scores. I graduated from the university of Tasmania in life sciences, with a major in Botany. I have recently attained a post graduate certificate in counselling and have over 20 years experience in ESL teaching. Over the last two years I have been teaching Italian to adults, and continue teaching English online, mainly to students in China!
My extensive experience in teaching has taught me many things about effective education which I believe is transferrable to all teaching. I believe an effective teacher knows how to reduce even very complex material into simple concepts, and bite sized chunks that can easily be assimilated. Many students have told me I have a talent in this respect. I also believe it is important to take a holistic approach to each and every student, catering not only to their learning style, but also taking a human interest in them as people, taking into consideration their interests and personality. I take an interactive approach, and, wherever possible I like my students to demonstrate their knowledge in a practical way. A good teacher is not only passionate about the subjects they teach, but is able to infuse their students with the same passion and enthusiasm.
