About

99.60 ATAR | National Debater

Hi! I'm Ally and I graduated from Sydney Girls High School in 2020 with an ATAR of 99.60. I'm currently studying a Bachelor of Arts (majoring in Linguistics) and a Bachelor of International Security Studies, at the Australian National University, with an HD average.

I achieved a Band 6 in every subject I studied in the HSC and was an All-Rounder. Furthermore, I did this while I was a school prefect, captain of the NSW Debating Team and competing at a national level in Model UN. Because of this, I’ve learnt firsthand how to optimise my studying, experience that I’ve used to inform my teaching style. As a debater, I’m also a strong communicator with an ability to simplify and explain complicated material.

📚 HSC SUBJECTS 📚
For Maths, I assist students in understanding concepts and approaching questions from all levels. I have an extensive bank of questions and material from my own ecperience sitting the HSC. As someone that improved from average 3U Maths marks in Year 11 to a 98 HSC mark in Year 12, I have a unique perspective on effective studying and improvement for maths.

For Economics, I take a three-pronged approach, encompassing learning content, improving economic expression and building current economic knowledge. I found that all three skills were incredibly important in succeeding in Economics exams and assessments, so we’ll work on building your knowledge base and transferring it into strong responses.

For French, we’ll work towards building your hollistic understanding of the language, and I’ll share my best study methods in learning a language. I’ll also help improve your approaches to questions to guarantee that you’re rewarded for what you know. I have a strong grasp on the language, currently taking Advanced courses at university, and my Linguistics studies make me well placed to explain and teach languages.

My marks!
- Mathematics Extension 1: 98/100
- Mathematics Extension 2: 93/100
- Economics: 94/100
- French Continuers: 96/100
- French Extension: 45/50

📣 DEBATING 📣
I have four years of experience teaching debating classes and one year of experience in one-on-one private tutoring. I also have spent the past year adjudicating debates at all year levels. This experience means that I have developed a strong capability to identify areas for improvement, as well as give managable and implementable feedback. Together, we’ll work on improving the structure of your speeches, the strength of your arguments and your general knowledge to help you improve your debating.

I was a member of the Australian Debating Team two in 2019 and 2020, and made the quarterfinals of the World Schools Debating Championships in 2019. I was part of the winning team of the National Schools Debating Championships in 2019 and 2020 (as the captain). At university, I’ve spoken in several finals of national and regional tournaments. My experience as a speaker means that I know not just what it takes to be an outstanding debater, but how to get there.

I prefer online tutoring, as I move between Sydney or Canberra. I have a year of experience tutoring online and have found it to be equally as effective as my experience doing classes in person.
