Hi, I’m Purnima!
I have an immense love for writing and film studies, so I tutor English and Media. I obtained a study score of 46 in English and 45 in Media, with a total ATAR of 91.10. I graduated in 2018 and following my passion for film, I am currently undertaking a Bachelor’s in Fine Arts (Film and Television) at The University of Melbourne.
Having recently come out of high school, I am well aware of the stress and anxieties that students face since I’ve been through them myself. It is my aim to build confidence in students so they can achieve more.
Considering that every student is an individual, I develop a particular method of study that works for each student and I adjust my approach according to their needs. My priority is to help students understand the curriculum whilst also inspiring some passion towards the subject. I want to help students find interest and enjoyment in a subject because I believe this prompts them to learn better.
I have been an English and Media tutor for two years for students across Year 7 – 12. In this time, I have guided students from a C grade to an A grade and have assisted students in achieving a 40+ study score in my subjects.
For English, I have taught my students how to write numerous essays, creative texts, persuasive texts, reading and comprehension, short answer assignments, grammar and vocabulary building.
For Media, I have taught my students how to construct and write essays, understand communication theories, analyse visual texts and develop strong arguments.
I supply all my students with multiple resources and exam questions. I provide phone and email support 7 days a week, plus I’m willing to meet in person or over Zoom/Skype.
I hold a current Working with Children Check
I look forward to hearing from you soon! Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
