MASTERS and PHD TUTOR WITH YEARS OF EXPERIENCE. FINAL SPOT FOR 2024 - ENSURE YOUR CHILD'S SUCCESS ** FILLED, CONTACT FOR WAITLIST OR SPECIAL CONSIDERATION CIRCUMSTANCES ***** Hi! My name is Kathleen Feeney, 30 years old. I am not a uni student but instead am occupied as a professional tutor with years working in the field. Working as a PhD and Masters tutor, I expanded into VCE tutoring to help build stronger writing and comprehension skills in students before entering the tertiary academic field. Until recently, I worked in the not-for-profit sector as a manager and writer. My job titles in the past few years include content writer, freelance journalist, grant writer, speechwriter (exclusively for CEOs, politicians, and members of my board of Directors), public relations manager, social media manager, and event coordinator. I am also a freelance editor for publishing firms. I am approachable, considerate, and understand that effective learning is ensured through engagement and commitment. Often tutors can be intimidating, and students have difficulty opening up about their issues. I believe that building trust and an open relationship is essential to ensuring your child's success. Success may always be achieved, though it may require some help. I hope that through my support and guidance, my students and I can work together to improve their results and confidence in their learning. Through my occupation, I specialise in writing speeches, newspaper articles, and testimonials. My work has been published in several newspapers, both local and national. I have written speeches for prominent sector leaders and provided information and analysis directly to the Board of Trustees. Working with public servants and members of the business community, I have been able to explore the depth of complexity of the English language, which strengthens my ability to access a student's needs, learning, and writing styles, and adopt an approach that will help them achieve their best. All of my recent students have now completed their Masters in a range of fields; all never receiving lower than a Distinction following my assistance (many had previously been given Passes or Credits). Past students include CEOs of large-scale organisations, directors of Surgical Training for Melbourne's Women's and Children's Hospitals, theoretical physicists, biomedical scientists, published writers, engineers, actors, educators, and many more. Due to my experience and proven ability in the field, I am also recommended by the Royal Melbourne, Royal Children's, and several other medical facilities, to assist medical and surgical residents in completing and receiving satisfactory work and results from their studies. I am available for my students every day, as I understand the pressures of VCE and make it my mission to help your child succeed, in a (relatively) stress-free environment. By offering 2-hour spots to my students, I can ensure that there is no time wasted on ineffective learning habits. If your child has specific needs that would require an hour-and-a-half session, please contact me - these aren't offered to VCE students due to their workload. An hour is not enough time to improve results in students heading towards the end of their schooling. As your child's tutor, you can be assured that I will work with your child to help them not only to succeed but to build a strong foundation for learning, which will carry them through to their further studies.
