About

ABOUT ME:

Hi all! I'm Eeleen Tey -- I graduated from QASMT in 2016 as the dux of Higher Level English (finishing on a total score of 89%). I've worked as an English tutor for 2 years and done private sessions as well as English workshops. I've also dabbled a bit as a content creator in the popular English website LitLearn.

This holiday I'll be running 2 workshops, and since I'm heading off to study Medicine in Melbourne next year, this is my last chance to impart 2 years of hard-slogged-for knowledge to you all before it goes to waste!

THE WORKSHOPS:

- How to have an attention-grabbing start

What to bring:

Credentials:
- Scored 28/30 on IOP (final IB score, post-moderation)

WiT workshop:
- What will be covered:
- Foolproof WiT structure
- How to vet your thesis (to strike that perfect balance between a thesis that is "too vague" and a thesis that is "too broad")
- How to make a cohesive argument
- How to vet your analysis (to make sure it's detailed enough, and in the style the IB want)

Paper 2 workshop
What will be covered:
- How to have a firm interpretation of the 3 prescribed texts
- How to analyse texts in a Paper 2 style
- Deconstruction of exemplar essays - why they worked and how you can replicate them
- Practice writing session and immediate, direct feedback by myself (not wishy-washy "peer feedback")
- Tips for how to study for Paper 2 - covering quote memorisation, practice paper schedules, and anything else you want to ask me about
- Structured learning and question time so you get your full money's worth without the lesson being bogged down by other peoples' questions
- Take-home resources such as my quote banks and annotated exemplars for later reading
Details:
- 2 hours
- 5 per workshop
- $70
What to bring:
- Spare paper
- Pens
Credentials:
- Scored a 7 in Paper 2 (can't remember what the score was though :/)
Past feedback:
- "Attending Eeleen's workshop has been a great help to me! My knowledge of the three required plays has significantly broadened. I now know what to expect and how to write my exam. I feel as though I now know how to prepare for IB English Literature. Thank you so much Eeleen!” — Aakanksha Sahu, QASMT 2018 graduate
