Hello there! Thanks for taking the time to visit my profile.
Achieving an ATAR of 90+ in 2017, I want to assist Year 11 and 12 VCE Biology students (Units 1/2 and Units 3/4) to achieve the best possible score they can. I aim to engage students through a variety of studying techniques that are both entertaining and informative while also motivating students to work hard for the best results!
I have an intense passion for all things biology related and am currently in my third year studying Bachelor of Biological Sciences at La Trobe University with a focus on genetics and molecular biology. I believe my extra insight and depth of knowledge gives students a better tutoring experience with a teacher who is truly invested in the topic and adaptable to different methods of teaching.
I am familiar with the current curriculum for VCE Biology Units 1-4 and hope to enable students to fully understand the study design and content as well as building upon their exam technique and approach to questions. Exam technique is a vital part of VCE Biology that is often overlooked and results in marks being lost despite students knowing the content. I can teach methods such as selective highlighting, annotating and the process of elimination to give students an upper edge on their peers when going into the exam.
Part of my tutoring experience is phone and e-mail support 24/7 to address any issues or questions between sessions. I’m a 15 minute walk away from La Trobe University and would prefer to meet at the La Trobe library for sessions. I also offer online lessons via Skype for long-distance students. I am available most days during the week and will do everything in my power to ensure your tutoring requirements are met.
I am charging $50 per hour for private tutoring sessions and am happy to meet with an individual student several times a week if needed. I offer group sessions for only $32 per person, so bring along your friends if you’d like.
I offer online tutoring sessions via Zoom for $50 per hour.
I also hold a valid Working with Children’s Check. Contact me today so we can start along the path to your VCE success!
Only met once. My daughter liked working with Sophie. Sophie was on time and engaging.
Sophie is a great tutor who allowed me to understand complex processes by breaking them down and explaining them clearly. She not only helped me learn the content of the course but taught me techniques that would help me in the exam. She has extensive knowledge of the biology course and I would highly recommend her as a tutor.
Sophie is a professional and nice tutor, and my daughter likes her tutoring very much. The communication between us was smooth. We are very satisfied.
