Hi there! Thanks for visiting my profile. I achieved a 99.55 ATAR in 2015 (Dux of Bayside P-12 College) and I am currently studying a Bachelor of Arts at the University of Melbourne. I am offering tutoring in English Language Units 3-4 (50 Study Score + Premier’s Award) and Legal Studies Units 3-4 (50 Study Score). I am passionate about the subjects I tutor and it is my aim to work with you to pass on my knowledge and help you achieve the best scores you can!
I plan my lessons to accommodate for your individual needs while ensuring that we cover the most important topics in great detail. I always encourage students to put forward your own ideas and opinions about the topics we cover. This helps to enhance not just your rote-learned knowledge of the subject content, but the skills of thinking critically and laterally that will help you excel.
Not only do I offer an extensive understanding of the necessary knowledge and skills to achieve top marks in these subjects, but I am interested in all the latest current affairs and can provide examples of real-life applications of the content of the subjects I tutor. I believe that if you can apply your understanding to the present day and bring that into the end-of-year exam, you are sure to impress the examiners and earn higher marks.
In addition, I provide resources including extensive notes, sample SACs and essays, and high-scoring coursework, made available for free to my tutoring clients.
It is my firm belief that anyone can succeed in the VCE. If you’re looking for a tutor who will go the extra mile to help you succeed, look no further!
A past student’s testimonial
“Tim is a very dedicated, supportive, positive and patient tutor. He is extremely engaging and he caters his teaching to the student’s style of learning. Tim is determined to make sure that you completely understand topics by using examples, answering all questions and taking the time to explain everything down to the last point. Especially for English Language, it is rather easy to think conventionally. With Tim’s support, however, he has helped me to ‘think outside the box.’ His guidance has made a tremendous difference in not only my marks but also my attitude towards the subject. I can say without a doubt that English Language is my favourite subject. I have never found a tutor who puts forward such efforts in bringing the best out of their students. I would not hesitate to recommend Tim to anyone who needs assistance.” – Helen, English Language Units 3/4 student, 2016

My phone is rarely switched off and my email inbox always open, so I am more than willing to respond to you ASAP if you ever need me between tutoring sessions.
I have a driver’s licence and car, and a Working with Children Check.
I live in Altona Meadows and tutor within the Western suburbs of Melbourne. I am happy to tutor you at my house or at yours, or at a public library in the Hobsons Bay/Wyndham area. I may also be able to tutor you at the University of Melbourne, subject to my university schedule.
I am available on weekday afternoons/evenings and weekends, subject to other personal commitments, and I will do my utmost to accommodate you into my schedule.
My rate is typically $42 per hour. I am also happy to tutor groups of a minimum of two students at the reduced rate of $32 per hour per student.
