About

HSC TRIAL PREP. Hey! I'm Portia, and I graduated in 2017 with an ATAR of 99.95. I myself enlisted the help of tutors during Year 12, and I strongly believe that the best advice and guidance comes from those who have recently been students themselves. I helped over 12 students throughout 2017, ranging from Year 8 to Year 12. My Year 12 students all achieved between a high Band 5 to high Band 6 in the 2018 HSC.

WHY ME?
At Ascham, I was First in Course for ten of my eleven units, finishing the year as DUX. In the HSC, I came 2nd in NSW for Economics and 12th for 2 unit Maths, with all my HSC marks at or above 94. My ATAR placed me in the top 46 students in NSW, or in the top 0.05% of candidates. My teaching is engaging, my lessons are informative and my approach is effective.

I have extensive notes and exemplars to share with students, including, top mark responses for English, Economics and French. While most of my students are weekly, I also offer lessons on a casual basis, perfect for students who just need help with a few assessments.

WHAT DO I OFFER?
Years 7-10: Mathematics, French
Year 11: English Advanced, English Ext. 1, Mathematics, French Speaking, Economics
Year 12: English Advanced, English Ext.1, English Ext. 2, Mathematics, French Speaking, Economics

Reviews

Portia was really helpful and patient - she allowed me to understand maths concepts that have confused me all year. I also asked portia for advice with creative and essay writing for English, and she gave me some great tips, including new vocabulary, different techniques and how to improve the structure of my essays. I would highly recommend her !

Portia is a friendly and extremely knowledgeable tutor who was very clear with all her explanations. She also provided me with an array of resources which really assisted with my learning.
I highly recommend her as a tutor :)
