Sarah J
Tutoring near Melbourne, Melbourne, VIC & Strathmore, Melbourne, VIC


About

Hello, I'm Sarah. I graduated from the visual arts program offered by The Victorian College of the Arts Secondary School in 2020. I had the opportunity to be apart of workshops and mentor programs run by practising artists, lecturers and curators.

My top performing subjects in VCE were English (43), Studio Arts (44) and Art (48), and I received an ATAR of 95.15. I was one of the top VCE scorers from my school. In 2021 semester 1, I studied a double BA in Art and Arts History and Curating at Monash.
As of 2021 semester 2, I am currently studying a BA in Fashion Design at RMIT.

I tutor students of all ages and can offer both online and onsite learning (when not in lockdown). My preference is to tutor in the CBD region (State Library/Melbourne Library) or in the northern suburbs, as I am located in Essendon.

I can speak English and Chaldean/Assyrian (as well as understand Arabic). I offer a free initial consultation with students to set healthy, achievable goals, discuss their preferred learning style, boundaries and any other considerations. I also provide my own VCE sample essays, practice sacs and other resources.

Reviews

Sarah is a patient and knowledgeable tutor! I got 40s in both of my art subjects thanks to her, and also A+ across my English subject. She makes elaborate, detail-orientated study plans with me. She is very funny, time flies by when we have our lessons. She made my year 12 more tolerable. :) thank you Sarah J!
