About

99.4 ATAR + English Literature Major

EXPERIENCED ONLINE + in person HSC and VCE Tutoring

Located in Prahran, in SE Melbourne

I completed the HSC in 2017 at a small high school near Byron Bay and received a 99.4 ATAR. I have now chosen to follow on with my passion for English and languages by studying a combined English Literature (creative writing), Linguistics and German degree at Monash University and have just completed a semester abroad in Berlin.

I believe that teaching is a skill and that not everyone who can do can teach. I genuinely love tutoring (and English) and I devote a lot of time and energy outside of sessions to supporting my students and developing lesson plans and resources. As a fourth year university student, I have maturity and experience that I believe leaves me better placed to tutor than someone fresh out of high school.

English can be a struggle for many students, but I believe that it does have something to offer everyone (even if that something may be hard to find), and I work with every student in a personalised and encouraging manner to help you achieve your best results. I work with the idea that the best way for your to improve your English is to write, and receive detailed feedback on your writing.

My subjects for the HSC were:
Advanced English (93)
English Ext. 1 (46)
English Ext. 2 (46)
Mathematics (99)
Maths Extension 1 (48)
SOR 1 (47)
Music 1 (93)
French Beginners (99, 4th in state).
ATAR 99.4

At the moment I am offering tutoring for English at all levels, Studies of Religion, and French and German Beginners, as well as lower level maths, English and humanities tutoring. I am currently working with over a dozen students and have experience tutoring VCE, QCE and ACT curriculum in addition to HSC students. I have been tutoring over a year and saw all of my year 12 students last year receive a band 6 in English.

I speak German and French at an advanced level (C1).


In addition to studying English at university, I also work as a text guide author at ATARNotes and therefore have a lot of experience with the syllabus and making English an accessible subject for students of all abilities.

My sessions are shaped by what you want to learn, but key areas we can focus on include:
-Essay writing
-VCE Language Analysis
-Analysing texts (I am familiar with most texts on the VCE and HSC curriculum)
-Creative writing
-Exam technique.

I can help students of any level both optimise their performance and get the most enjoyment and satisfaction out of their studies, as I believe both are equally important, even if you think compulsory English isn't your thing.

I offer an initial free consultation so we can work out what you want to get out of the experience :) message me now to arrange a time.
