Tutoring near Yarra Glen VIC & Lilydale, Melbourne, VIC


About

Why work with me?

• Ranked in top 13 student achievers in Victoria for English in 2013 (Premier's Award recipient)
• Graduate of Art History from University of Melbourne with Honours scores
• Masters student at University of Melbourne (Publishing, Editing and Creative Writing)

I am a versatile tutor with 7 years' experience in one-on-one and group tuition situations. I specialise in English and the humanities, and enjoy the challenge of tailoring my approach to your student's specific needs and learning goals.

I excelled at English and English Literature in VCE, receiving study scores of 50.00 and 48.00 respectively. I was ranked in the top 13 students in the state for English in 2013, receiving the only Premier's Award for the subject in my cohort.

As a tutor I am quite casual and approachable. I work hard, and expect hard work from my students, but I know from experience that students learn more when inspired, so I prioritise enjoyment and humour. I am also familiar with the VCAA study design and know what examiners are looking for. I maintain relationships with my previous teachers so that I can pass on practical, structural advice and am aware when changes happen.

I have a lot of technical skills to pass on, as well as advice on real-world applications. I understand the VCE system and university system, which allows us to plot pathways rather than just chase a score in the here-and-now.

Reviews

Character references

Robbie was a vital figure when it came to me reaching my academic goals in Year 12. I came in touch with Robert through my English teacher who recommended him to me.

Throughout the journey, Robbie showed great passion in helping me reach my goals and succeed in every aspect of my final year. Based on our experience together, I can confidently recommend him to anybody needing academic help.

Robbie, has an outgoing, friendly personality and loves to help students. During the peak times of my year, I was able to contact Robbie outside of our lesson and get the advice I needed. Honestly, Robbie shares a reason for the success I had during my final year of High School. He separates himself from the average tutor with the diverse skill set and authentic passion he has.
