About

*Currently offering online tuition during unprecedented COVID-19 crisis*

Hi, my name is Isabella, a recent UNSW graduate with a degree in Science/Arts (Honours), majoring in Psychology and English, minoring in Linguistics, and with Honours in English. Of my two majors, English is what I am truly passionate about, which is why I tutor to not only help my students achieve great marks, but to inspire them to love English as I do!

I've been tutoring English for almost six years now, since I graduated high school - I attended a school ranked in the Top 50 in NSW, achieved a 90+ ATAR, and obtained a Band 6/E4 in English Advanced, English Extension 1 and English Extension 2. Over the years, I have tutored students both independently and through tutoring companies, covering numerous texts and topics with students from kindergarten to Year 12. For HSC students in particular, I have taught a range of now-familiar elective modules, and have aided students in achieving their ATAR goals. I'm also familiar with the new HSC English syllabuses, especially for English Advanced and Extension 1.

For all students, my rate is $70/h,* although in exceptional circumstances, these rates are subject to negotiation. Included in this cost is the provision of highly extensive feedback in my out-of-hours marking of your work (as to make the best use of our class time!), as well as the provision of notes and study materials. I do both home visits for students who live locally, or otherwise I see most students at UNSW library.

*For online lessons, my rates have now been reduced to $65/h to account for the no longer needed travel cost - and again, am willing to negotiate these costs especially during such unpredictable times. My online lessons are conducted over FaceTime or Zoom, while accessing Google Docs, so both myself and the student can make changes, edits, and notes at the same time.

If you are interested, feel free to contact me anytime - I would love to help you find English both easy and enjoyable!

Reviews

Really loved having Isabella as an English tutor for my final two years of high school. Her standards were very high and I learnt a lot from her each lesson. She made me work very hard and achieve great English marks so I highly recommend you see her for a lesson.
