Hello! My name is Melissa and I graduated as School DUX from North Sydney Girls High School in 2018. I am currently studying Doctor of Dentistry/ Bachelor of Science at University of Sydney.

I have had tutoring experience at Pre-Uni College, Kumon Education, Maxx Academy and have been a private tutor for 4 years. Over this period of time, I have had the pleasure of teaching over 100 students! At university, I have achieved the Dean's List of Academic Excellence every year.

I feel passionate about teaching, and thrive in an interactive environment. I am trustworthy and always put my 100% into helping you achieve your goals in the HSC, so you're in safe hands! If anything, I know how daunting the last years of high school are, and I hope to make your journey a little bit smoother.

With a competitive mark of 98 in the external HSC exam (a STATE RANK mark), I am extremely familiar with the marking criteria and nuances within the English Advanced syllabus. I not only tutor English, but also offer essay marking at $60 per essay for Yr 11/12 students. Additionally, I mentor junior high school students in years 7-10 who seek to build a foundation to do well in the future and help them accelerate their studies.

I also have extensive experience in tutoring math. In my most recent Year 12 graduates, one student improved from below average to top 15 in Extension 1 Mathematics at North Sydney Girls High (with over 100 students in Ext 1 Math). Math is a passion of mine - I hope to bring this to all my students too :)

In my lessons, I seek to:
- Identify your areas of weakness and strength
- Create a personalised study plan
- Provide resources on a weekly basis to enhance knowledge covered
- Have topic quizzes every few weeks to solidify understanding
- Improve exam techniques and tips to assess full marks

Additionally, every student receives a TERMLY REPORT, in which I go through detailed feedback on their progress and areas they need to focus on. In this way, parents are also engaged in the tutoring process and can have a thorough understanding of what the students have covered in tutoring every term.

I am willing to travel to CBD, Chatswood, though most lessons are held in State Library of New South Wales or Hunters Hill. NOTE: CURRENTLY ONLY HOLDING ONLINE LESSONS
