Hi, I’m Sophie and thanks for taking the time to look at my profile! Having completed the HSC in 2017 at SCEGGS Darlinghurst in Sydney, I am now studying a double degree in International Security Studies and Public Policy at the ANU.” (ie change the second degree from Asian Studies to Public Policy.)
Awarded a Band 6 in Japanese Continuers, Modern History and Advanced English and E4s in History Extension and Extension 1 English (49/50) in the HSC, I endeavour to pass my experiences, tips and knowledge onto any students from Years 7-12 in order to ensure that they are equipped with everything that they need to succeed. Making sure that my students have confidence, pride and interest in their studies is my top priority – something that I achieve by tailoring each session to the individual student and their passions, challenges and goals.
I personally understand just how dry and boring it can be to try to learn something from a textbook, so I also aim to totally challenge that and change the way a student looks at their studies! My lessons therefore, though studious, are also engaging and taught to the specific learning style of the student. So no matter if you’re a visual, auditory or kinesthetic learner or even a mixture of them all, my lessons can easily be adapted to make sure that you get the most out of our sessions!
I am familiar with the current curriculum for Japanese (Continuers and Extension), English (Advanced and Extension 1), Mathematics and History (Modern and Extension) and am skilled in various areas, including:
- Exam Preparation
- Study and Homework Skills
- Time Management
- Essay Writing
- Text familiarisation
- Text Analysis (English and Japanese language)
I only charge $40 per hour with the first session free of charge! As your tutor, my support will also not only be limited to our sessions as I offer 24/7 phone and email support so can provide feedback, answers or any other form of consultation whenever you need.
I live in Acton, Canberra so you’re welcome to come to me or I am more than happy to come to you – whichever suits you best. I am available 7 days a week so am flexible on times and will do my utmost best to find something that suits us both. Alternatively, I also offer online tutoring.
I hope to hear from you soon to start maximising your potential and achieving success!
I also hold a valid Working with Children check and valid Driver’s Licence.
