1st IN ENGLISH NSW | USYD ENGLISH HONOURS

1st in English (Advanced) 2016 - 7th in Earth and Environmental Science 2016 - 99.85 ATAR
Author of the ATARNotes Guide Book to the NEW 2019 Syllabus
Maxwell E Arthur Prize for Australian Literature at the University of Sydney.

I am a dedicated English student with a consistent record of achievement. I came 1st in NSW 2016 for English Advanced with a perfect mark, and an ATAR of 99.85. I now study Arts/Law at the University of Sydney, currently undertaking a honours year in English. During this degree, I have achieved the highest aggregate mark for Australian Literature at the University, and won the Principals Prize for Prose for my Creative Writing. I also have two years of experience teaching English at a University level at St Andrews College, Sydney, and have lectured thousands of students as the Head of English at ATARNotes NSW.

I love exploring the link between literature and our world, and I hope this is a passion I can help cultivate in you, as a student.

I have four years of experience in tutoring. In particular, I have honed my skills as an English mentor, working closely with students who have chosen to undertake Extension Two English. I have also worked with students who are less English inclined; helping them boost their marks and get more out of the subject. I am across most texts, and have plenty of sample responses at my disposal.

I have written two study guides for English Advanced and Standard with ATARNotes NSW. I also have four years experience writing copy and speeches for Government authorities, and have thus proven my written skills as flexible, creative and persuasive.

Reviews

Character references

Taking a look at her results, I really don’t think there is much I need to say to convince you that receiving tutoring from Emily would be a once in a blue moon opportunity, but in case you still need convincing, I can assure you that there is no one that I would recommend more highly as an English tutor than Emily Tyrell. Not only is she one of the smartest, kindest and most hardworking individuals that I have ever had the privilege to meet, but as someone who works with ATAR Notes alongside Emily, I have seen first hand the considerable impact that her teaching has had on the students who attend, many coming up after her lecture to say that they are already feeling more confident with English. I believe that any student would be lucky to have Emily as an english tutor, and endorse her fully!
