Hi, I'm Orana! I am a passionate English tutor with experience in online teaching. I graduated Year 12 in 2018 with an ATAR of 98.45 and Band 6s in all of my subjects. I am now studying English and History at the University of Sydney, and placed first in the university for First Year English.

I take a holistic attitude towards teaching English. In my experience, the most valuable tools I can give a student are fundamental skills in analysis, argument and writing. My goal is not to drill my own interpretations of a text into my students' brains - I want you to gain the confidence to have your own opinions and express them convincingly.

The HSC is an incredibly stressful time, and the current global pandemic is not making this any easier! I hope I can help to ease your transition to online learning, and make sure that all your individual English learning needs are being met.

I offer one-on-one lessons via Skype or Zoom at a rate of $65/hour. These lessons are usually structured around textual analysis, writing skills, and assessment planning. I also offer small group lessons of 2-4 students via Zoom for students from the same school, studying the same texts. These lessons cost $40/hour per student.

I offer one-off 'marking' of Extension 2 English Major Works for a flat rate of $85. I will give a mark out of 50, detailed annotations with suggestions for improvement, and comments on grammar, punctuation and syntax. I am happy to take Major Works in all stages of development, and in all forms.

I also have a Working With Children Check.

If you're interested in English tutoring with me, please feel free to get in contact with me. I look forward to hearing from you :D
