About

HSC STATE RANKER - 4+ YEARS TUTORING EXPERIENCE

Tutoring Qualifications
I am a highly experienced tutor from primary school to HSC level, including for the OC and Selective Schools exams. My past students have topped their schools in their subjects, and received high E4s (47/50) in HSC extension subjects. I'm familiar with the new syllabi for HSC English and Modern History.

As a tutor, I ensure that my students fully understand the syllabus expectations in order to maximize their results in assessments, but also aim to make the content engaging and interesting.

I’m experienced helping students with:
- Exam technique
- Essay skills
- Essay editing and giving detailed feedback
- Course content – Modern History modules, Extension History case studies, and English texts
- Speaking, listening, writing and reading skills for French Continuers
- History Extension major works

In 2015, I ranked 1st in NSW for Extension History (50/50 both internally and in my HSC Examination), and 21st for Modern History. I also achieved band sixes in English Advanced, Mathematics, French Continuers and French Extension, and I am an experienced tutor for these subjects.

As well as in-person sessions or tutoring via Skype, I provide online essay marking, including detailed feedback. I’m also available via phone and email throughout the week, so I can always answer questions in between sessions and send you useful materials and supplementary notes. I can also do one-off seminars for individual students or for groups – this can be a useful way to revise everything you’ve learned so far and fill in any gaps in your knowledge, or even to learn a new module.

Travel policy

Unfortunately, I can't do home visits. I rely on public transport and often have multiple students each afternoon. Sorry about that!
