Hi! My name is Sabrina, I’m 18 years old and am currently studying a major in Media and Communications and a diploma in Computer Science at the University of Melbourne in my first year. I am aiming to tutor IB Maths, English, and TOK. However, each tutoring session need not be exclusive to one subject – during the session, I can offer guidance for any of these areas. I graduated from UWCSEA in Singapore with 44 points in the IB (99.75 ATAR). I scored:
- HL Physics – 7
- HL Philosophy – 7
- HL Maths – 6
- SL Chinese B – 7
- SL Psychology – 7
- SL English Lit – 7
- Core – 3 points for TOK and my Physics EE (A and B respectively)
I love learning about pretty much anything under the sun and am pumped to share study tips, skills, and tricks with you to maximize exam and class performance. Study smart instead of hard, am I right? For tutoring, I am offering online and in-person lessons at your convenience. If you live within a 45-minute radius from Parkville, I am happy to come to you. If you would prefer to work in a more public space, we can meet in any central library or cafe. During sessions, I would provide notes, past IB papers, sample essays, and guidance with any questions/assignments you might have. I would also assist you with the dreaded internal assessment and hopefully help you enjoy the process above just the rote of the rubric. For my Maths IA and English written assignment, I scored a 7. For my TOK essay, I scored 19/20 points.
I would describe myself as a bubbly, easy-going, creative person, who loves a challenge. I’m passionate about writing, exploring different media forms (photography, magazines, podcasts), dance (I love a good Ballet), fashion, and music!
Additionally, I am quite familiar with the US college admissions process and was admitted to NYU in the Fall of 2020 but declined my offer due to COVID and financial circumstances. Therefore, I would love to share what I know and offer support for your college essays, ACT preparation (I scored 34 points in the ACT), and any other admin work. Above all, I would like to be a mentor to you in all facets, not just in the hour a week that we spend together – I’m always down for a chat about any school or outside related concerns and I will do my best to provide the support that I wish I had in high school!
