QUALIFIED TEACHER | 7+ YEARS OF TUTORING EXPERIENCE
NOW TAKING STUDENTS FOR 2022!
** No enquiries from tutoring centres please **

Hi there!

I’m a qualified teacher with a BA/BEd (Hons Class 1) from USYD. I'm incredibly passionate about education and love helping students achieve and exceed academic goals through tutoring.

EXPERIENCE:

I am highly experienced, and have been tutoring for seven years both online and face-to-face and during this time, have supported over 100 students in English (from primary up to Extension 2), Maths (K-8 only), Ancient, Modern and Extension History, Music (including piano tuition and AMEB exam prep), Italian, and Studies of Religion.

I am also well-versed in NAPLAN, Scholarship/OC Test, the Selective Schools Test, and AMEB Theory/Musicianship and have prepared many students for these exams in the past.

I have also taught in public, Catholic and independent schools and have experience teaching English, Modern History and Religion across Years 7-12.

My students have come from a range of schools including North Sydney Boys, Manly Selective, Sydney Grammar, Pymble Ladies College, Ravenswood, SHORE, Joeys, Loreto Normanhurst + Kirribilli, Abbotsleigh, Ascham, Monte, Barker, Knox Grammar, Trinity Grammar, St George Girls... among many others.

MY APPROACH:

As a teacher, I have worked extensively alongside experienced HSC teachers and HSC markers and thus have some great insider knowledge on what markers are really looking for. I know what it takes to achieve strong results, from both a student's and a teacher's perspective. As a tutor, I aim to help my students achieve, and exceed, their academic goals. From topping the class, to passing the next exam - my lessons use carefully tailored and differentiated teaching strategies to ensure my students achieve their best.

My lessons are typically 1:1 however if you would like a small group lesson with some friends then we can arrange that as well!

I believe that tutoring is just as important for the parent as it is for the student and thus, I endeavour to keep parents informed every step of the way with regular updates and communication.

ESSAY MARKING:

I also offer an essay marking service in which I am able to provide extensive written feedback and an estimated mark. This is free of charge for my regular students however it does incur a small fee if I don't normally see you for lessons.

MAJOR WORK FEEDBACK:

I'm also happy to provide feedback on major works for English Extension 2, History Extension and Music. This is free of charge for my regular students however it does incur a small fee if I don't normally see you for lessons.

LOCATION:

Zoom lessons preferred, but I am also willing to travel within 3km of either Killara, Surry Hills or North Ryde for in-person lessons. Anything further incurs an additional fee.

RATES:

$65/hour for high school
$50/hour for primary school
$40/hour per student for small group lessons
$30 for essay/major work feedback if not a regular student

$10 travel fee for in-person lessons outside of 3km radius.

BOOKINGS:

My timeslots do fill up very quickly so please get in touch as soon as possible to secure a place.
