English | History |
Hello, my name is Nicholas and I am a passionate private tutor that specialises in English and History subjects. I have over five years experience for more than fifty successful students with many achieving band six results for their HSC. In 2021, I completed a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy and Ancient History at Sydney University, where I maintained a distinction average across a variety of essay focused subjects. I completed my HSC in 2015 with an ATAR of 96.2. I am also currently working as a Student Learning Support Officer in an Inner West high school.
I believe that effective tutoring requires more than just an excellent understanding of the topic. Each student approaches learning in a unique way and so communication, rapport and an understanding of methods of learning are also essential. Through my tutoring I strive to identify the specific instruction methods that are necessary to achieve the best possible results for each student. I constantly endeavour to make learning an engaging and fun experience whilst still placing emphasis on explaining concepts as effectively as possible. I am also utilising my growing understanding of teaching methods and my experience working in a high school to create specific learning structures for my students. I have an extensive understanding of the various HSC History and English curriculums as well as the evaluation standards used by teachers and HSC markers.
Specifically, I can assist with:
- Essay structures
- Essay styles
- Draft revision
- Language and grammar
- Integrating quotes and evidence
- Comprehension questions
- Historical analysis
- Language techniques
- Literary analysis
- Creative, discursive and persuasive writing
- Assessment and exam preparation
- Time management
- The history extension project
I can also provide additional material through reading and revision questions to allow my students to further practice their techniques at home.
For new clients I offer a free 30 minute consultation where we can discuss the student’s needs, future outcomes and areas for improvement. For parents I also offer a free HSC consultation where we can discuss the layout and features of the HSC assessment structure and exam.
I have a valid working with children's check and a great deal of experience with childcare and support. I also have experience with children who have learning challenges such as ADHD, ASD and dyslexia. If you have any questions, or would like to see my resume or references, please don’t hesitate to ask.
