About

Hello! My name is Catherine Meagher and in 2019 I graduated from Carey Baptist Grammar School achieving an ATAR of 97.95. I was awarded as the Dux of VCE Business Management, VCE Legal Studies and VCE Media for the 2019 Carey Grammar cohort. I also achieved a Premier's VCE Award for Media, recognising me as 1 of the top 4 highest performers in Victoria with a perfect score of 50.
I am currently in my second year of studying the Bachelor of Laws (Honours) and Bachelor of Arts (Criminology and Human Rights) at Monash University.

My raw scores:
Business Management: 49
Media: 50
English: 42
Legal: 41

** Having a tutor from 2019 is an ADVANTAGE over the class of 2020 because we were taught the COMPLETE study designs that will be used in 2021, rather than 2020's amended versions (missing key pieces of material) **

I found tutoring exceedingly valuable in Year 12 and I attribute much of my academic success to this. I am enthusiastic to pass this on to students undertaking ¾ VCE English, Media, Business Management and Legal Studies. I offer 1 on 1 sessions or group lessons, and provide 24/7 support for students when required. As a tutor, I pride myself on my communication skills and ability to form relationships with my students. To date, I have amassed 600+ HOURS of tutoring experience and have found these sessions to be immensely rewarding with great results!

To meet your academic needs, I tailor my lessons in accordance with your ability and goals to gain the most from our sessions. I have a plethora of resources that were critical in achieving an A+ standard in each of my SACs (School Assessed Coursework) and can help you too! Every student will receive a set of my comprehensive notes and access to my past SACs and exams, both practice and official assessments. I will work with you to learn and understand every study design dot point and command term. We will strategically improve the way you respond to questions to maximise results in your SACs and ultimately the exam. I also have a certified Working with Children's Check :)

If you would like to know more or book a session with me, you're very welcome to shoot me a message through this website.
Looking forward to hearing from you!
Thanks - Cat.

I cannot recommend Catherine more highly! She tutored my son in 3/4 Business Management this year and we have been extremely happy we found her!
Catherine was flexible and accommodating at all times and transitioned to online tutoring seamlessly during COVID restrictions. She has an in depth knowledge of the subject and the assessment process. The preparation she provided our son before each SAC and the notes she shared with him have been invaluable. She went through past exams with him and how to tackle each question to maximise marks. He felt very prepared for the final exam which is what we were hoping for! Thank you Cat!

I would not hesitate in recommending Catherine as a tutor for Business Management. At all times Catherine has been extremely reliable, supportive and most of all inspiring for my daughter to do her best. Catherine has shown great care throughout this year and has always accommodated any changes or extra lessons as required. Her depth of knowledge in Business Management is exceptional, as well as her ability to break down elements for the components to be well understood. She has supported my daughter with lots of practice exam questions which has led to an increase in confidence. Thank you Catherine!

Cat is an amazing tutor! I know everyone says this about their tutor but she is truly the best! Amazing communication and support. The amount of value she brings to each lesson is priceless. After one session I could feel myself improving and my business teacher also asked me what I did to improve. Another great thing about Cat is that she supplies notes and practise questions that are so helpful. The criticism during lessons is always delivered in a good way, and it seems that she knows exactly how you can improve.
10/10 would recommend!

Catherine was very patient with her tutoring of my son in Business Management. She was able to provide practical insights into how to answer questions to maximise marks while helping him to better learn the content. Catherine understands the Business Management subject having earned a fabulous VCE score AND can also teach!! Not all tutors can claim both. Many thanks, Robyn.

Catherine has been the most wonderful tutor I could imagine. Initially I was doubtful regarding having a tutor for year 12, but Catherine has helped me exceed this year and I couldn’t have done it without her. Throughout high school I was practically failing every class, now I’m averaging an A throughout all subjects she has tutored me in and I attribute my heightened grades all to her. Her notes have been phenomenal and her way of teaching content have been better than any teacher I’ve had. I could not recommended her enough times and I’m beyond grateful to have met a tutor so full of knowledge, wisdom and kindness. I have never met a tutor that has such a passion and desire for her students to do well and I commend her for all her effort spent into helping me succeed. I could not recommend Catherine any more, she is simply the best.
