My name is Sophie and I am currently doing a Masters of Writing and Publishing at RMIT University. I also completed an arts degree in Creative Writing at the University of Melbourne. English during secondary school was by far one of my favourite subjects and the subject I did best in for VCE (study score: 45). I completed secondary school five years ago and I still find my english education so valuable, especially at university. Whether or not a secondary student wishes to pursue a higher-education or not, skills and knowledge from english are so valuable.
This subject does have it’s challenges, once you get the hang of it, I found it to be enjoyable and useful. I was a creative secondary student, and preferred art and social study subjects. I believe taking subjects at school which you enjoy the most will result in a great ATAR. I took history, theatre studies, english, media and french. My ATAR was 94.5, with my best subject being English followed by theatre, media, history and french.
I am a caring, compassionate and invested tutor. I appreciate that every student is different, and obtain various skill sets and interests. Some may find English harder than others, but this doesn’t matter. My aim is to assist in any way I can to ensure a student can achieve the best marks they possibly can.
I can adapt to a variety of curriculum and can be very flexible week to week, according to subject matter at school or particular challenges or interests that arise. Most importantly, can provide a devoted and experienced tutor/student relationship. I am more than happy to do both online and in-person lessons.
