Hi there! Thanks for visiting my profile.
My name is Paul and I have a profound passion for both writing and reading.
I was able to achieve a score of 50 raw in English and 45 raw in Literature in 2019. I am therefore extremely familiar of what is expected to perform well, and how to fill any gaps you may have. Additionally, I was Dux of Literature at St Kevin’s College in 2017.
I would love to share my passion and knowledge to current Year 11 and Year 12 students, and will be offering my private tutoring services for units ½ and ¾ English and Literature!
English can be a very challenging subject to grasp, especially with so many different topics/themes for students to tackle in their core texts. That is why it is my aim to break down these topics and themes for my students in a systematic fashion that makes English easy, more enjoyable, and ensures a greater understanding of what is required in the subject to do really well!
My main goal is to help you achieve your very best in VCE English and Literature.
Many students have commented to me that the VCE core texts are often tedious and disengaging, and thus very difficult to empathise with their themes and characters. That is why I believe my passion for these subjects and enthusiastic personality can totally change your attitude! It is often something only as simple as a boring teacher that can make a subject difficult. My aim is to completely change that.
Like English, Literature can be very dry and monotonous. It is my aim to provide clarity, to go through each passage and question one by one, and cover all gaps my students may feel they have.
For both English and Literature, I can help you with:
- Correcting essays
- Analysing themes and characters within your core texts
- Essential skills required for comparative analysis
- Identifying structure, language techniques and relevant metalanguage
- Critical passage analysis techniques, looking carefully at close language analysis and language features
- Writing a great essay!
