About

Hi, I'm Orana! I graduated Year 12 in 2018 with an ATAR of 98.45 and Band 6s in all of my subjects. I'm currently studying English and History at the University of Sydney. When I'm not studying, I work with HSC markers to develop teaching materials for the new Year 12 syllabus.

I try to take a holistic attitude towards teaching English. In my experience, the most valuable tools you can give to a student are fundamental skills in analysis, argument, planning and writing. My goal is not to drill my own interpretations of a text into my students' brains - I want you to gain the confidence to have your own opinions and express them convincingly. I believe that every student learns differently, and I always structure lessons around the specific needs and learning style of my students.

I also have a Working With Children Check.

If you're interested, please feel free to email me at oranadb@gmail.com or text me at 0449 112 329. Looking forward to hearing from you :D
