Travel policy

Unfortunately due to travel limitations, I am unable to tutor at homes. The libraries I prefer to tutor at are Strathfield Main Library and Burwood Library. However, if it is more convenient, I can also tutor at the NSW State Library (however this will incur a small extra fee of $5 to cover transport costs) or at cafes.

About

Hi! My name is Ashley and I am a recent High School Graduate from Meriden School. I am highly proficient in English as I was selected for the role of 2018 School English Captain. This involved mentoring students in the areas of public speaking, creative writing, poetry and essay writing.



My HSC subjects were:

English Advanced, English Extension 1, English Extension 2, Mathematics, French Continuers and Accelerated Business Studies (received a HSC mark of 97 in 2019).

I offer:
Primary School Students K-6 ($20/hr)
- English, Mathematics and French homework help
- General homework feedback/proof-reading
- Public speaking mentoring

High School Students 7-12 ($30/hr)
- English proof-reading and marking (Essay and Creative writing)
- French homework help
- Business Studies proof-reading and marking (Short answer question/Business report/Extended Response)

My goal is to help students understand the foundation of the subject in order to fully grasp how to approach questions in a flexible, not formulaic, manner. This is due to the new syllabus of the HSC, which I have experienced firsthand, as it encourages students to think broadly rather than rely on memorised knowledge.
