Primary/Selective Testing:
For the past two years I have been working at a tutoring center, teaching both private and group classes (pre-kindy to year 12). I have experience and understanding on how to work with young children, encouraging genuine development and building of core skills. Moreover, having undergone the selective test myself, I understand the stresses and pressure felt by students leading up to the exam. I have a vast amount of practice test materials, and immense experience teaching preparation material (English, Maths, GA, Writing) for the selective examination.

IB Diploma:
I understand the stress and overwhelming nature of the International Baccalaureate Diploma, and would to love to help guide you along this journey! I provide tutoring and internal assessment help in Business, Design Technology, Maths and Psychology. I also can provide notes and examination material.

More about me:
In 2017 I completed the IB Diploma with exceptional results in all my subjects. During the two years, I felt overwhelmed when it came to understanding and applying content. Having completed 2 of my 6 subjects in my penultimate year, it made be confident in understanding how the IB worked and what the markers wanted to see in written responses. I hope that under my tutelage this will become more relaxing to ultimately benefit the student. I also understand the stress that is associated with the internal assessments and can therefore assist over the period of writing and submitting drafts. I received high marks on my internal assessments across my subjects. I achieved high overall grades, obtaining the highest grade possible (7) in Business and Management HL, Design and Technology SL, and Mathematical Studies SL. I also provide acceleration for those looking to take on the IB. Tutoring for the fundamental reading, writing and arithmetic areas are also available for younger year groups (Years 4-10). In-person tutoring as well as Skype lessons are available in both a one-on-one and group lesson format. I currently charge $50 per hour for one on one lessons and $25 for intensive feedback and marking on Internal Assessments and Extended Essays.

I enjoy getting involved in volunteering for local charities as well as assisting in university activities for societies. Over the pass few years I have been able to achieve multiple accomplishments in academics, music and sport. I am an active member of the United Nations Society, promoting debating and public speaking skills amongst Sydney's Youth. Year 11 and 12 academic prizes Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award. Has a current Working with Children Check.

Katerina is an amazing tutor, she helped me understand concepts in DT and Psychology. I received grade 7s in both when I was at a grade 5 during my final exams. I honestly couldn't have done it without her help and highly recommend her to students undertaking the IB.
