Hi, my name is Sophia and welcome to my profile.
I am a graduate of the University of Melbourne, and an experienced and passionate English and humanities tutor. I have worked with primary, secondary and tertiary aged students. I completed my schooling in NSW but am very familiar with the VCE system. I graduated with an ATAR of 99.15 out of 100 from SCEGGS Darlinghurst, and was the dux of my school in English. I was also placed on the high achievers list for HSC scores in NSW.
My tutoring style is positive and friendly, I strive for the absolute best for my students, and am passionate about imparting all the knowledge I have so to best allow my students to fulfil their potential in their subjects. Although I want to help my students attain the highest marks, I am most committed to inspiring a love of learning in students. I want to inject some inspiration and excitement back into the education experience, as I know this is sometimes hard to come by at school.
I am proud of the feedback on my tutoring style that I have received from parents and students alike. One of my proudest achievements was helping a year nine student, whose English was at a year four level, learn how to properly construct essays and actually start to excel in her own year group.
I am skilled in the following areas:
- SAC preparation
- In-depth text analysis
- High level essay planning, construction and editing
- Spelling, grammar and punctuation.
I also tutor in the following subjects:
- History Revolutions
- Visual Art
