About

Hi, I’m Nyah. I am currently undertaking an Honours year in French at the University of Melbourne, after recently completing a Bachelor of Arts in French and Linguistics. I have a passion for teaching and helping my students feel confident in themselves and their ability to achieve their goals. Here’s a snapshot of what I’ve done: • Graduated VCE in 2019 with an ATAR of 99.05 • Graduated from Bachelor of Arts in 2023 with WAM of 91.07 • Received VCE Premier’s Award (2018) • High Distinction achieved in all French and Linguistics subjects • Awarded Dean’s Honours List – Bachelor of Arts (Melbourne University, 2021) • Awarded Dean's Honours List - Bachelor of Arts (Melbourne University, 2022) • Awarded A. D. Hallam Memorial Prize (Melbourne University, 2022) • Awarded Takamitsu Muraoka Prize (Melbourne University, 2022) • Worked with Association of French Teachers in Victoria on the development of pedagogical ressources • Undertaken internships in both high school and bilingual primary school classrooms • Worked in a high school classroom setting as a French assistant • Experience tutoring, teaching and mentoring high school and university students *FREE INTRODUCTORY SESSION – where we meet online, get to know each other and see if we are a good fit. This chat allows you to let me know a bit about you and what your needs are, so that I can help you meet your learning goals. *Get in contact with me so we can start working towards building your confidence and achieving your learning goals early in the year. HOW I CAN HELP YOU AS YOUR FRENCH TUTOR: I understand the challenges of learning a foreign language but also know how to help make it feel less overwhelming. I provide my students with the time, care, resources and support needed to feel more capable and confident reading, writing, listening and speaking French. I also have a particular passion for grammar and explaining the tricky concepts that often hold students back. I provide a safe and comfortable environment where you have the chance to practice and learn without fear of judgement. Sessions are tailored to each of my student’s individual needs. HOW I CAN HELP YOU AS YOUR ENGLISH LANGUAGE TUTOR: I have a particular love for English Language, as it started my own passion for Linguistics, and I am well practiced at teaching the concepts and technicalities that often trip students up. I provide lots of feedback to help you develop confidence in both the technical and written aspects of English Language. I encourage a growth mind-set and create a non-judgemental environment where students understand the value of making mistakes as part of the learning experience. Sessions are tailored to each of my student’s individual needs. HOW I CAN HELP YOU AS YOUR PRODUCT DESIGN AND TECHNOLOGY TUTOR: I completed Product Design and Technology with a focus on textiles in 2018, achieving a raw 50 study score and being awarded a Premier's VCE award. One of my real strengths was developing my folio, which was short-listed for Top Designs in 2019. I help students develop confidence in the skills required to present a high standard folio presentation and final product, and succeed in both SACS and the final exam. Sessions provide students with a space to discuss and explore their ideas, progress and presentation.
