About

Hi! My name is Teodora and I am currently studying a combined degree of Advanced Science and Economics at USYD. I received an ATAR of 97.2 and would love to tutor:
*English (Standard, Adv or Ext 1) - band 6 in Adv and Ext 1 english
*Biology - band 6 (I also tutor junior science)
*Maths (general or 2 unit) - band 6
*Economics - band 6

-->Any students year 7-12!

***CURRENTLY TAKING NEW STUDENTS FOR 2019***

During high school I learnt that you can never go over an idea too many times - hearing the concepts you learn at school in different ways is really helpful to make sure you fully understand all ideas and can apply these to any exam question. I work closely with my students, tracking their progress and am often in constant communication, happy to answer any questions over email/text outside of class hours. I also develop homework sheets for subjects such as maths and science to complement lessons and ensure content is fully understood. If additional help is required nearing exam blocks or assessment task due dates, my schedule is flexible enough to allow for extra or longer sessions.

I offer my detailed Preliminary and HSC notes (i.e. years 11 and 12) to all of my regular students free of charge, however they are also available for purchase to anyone. Notes are for:
*English Advanced (my essays, creative writing etc).
*English Extension
*Biology
*Economics
For each subject: $10 per module, or $30 for the whole year.

Additionally, I offer one-off essay/creative/report editing:
--> $20 for a general overview
--> $90 for extremely detailed feedback of what to remove and include, as well as example sentences that you can also use. Also includes a detailed breakdown of the exam question, structure suggestions, and a summary of the context and main themes of the text.

Tutor experience:
Previously, I've worked at a selective high school in the Sydney CBD as a tutor, and have also contributed to an online HSC forum, ATARnotes, which included study note writing and answering students' questions. Since then, I have been a private tutor for a range of students for over 3 years.

Availabilities/Location:
I hold my tutoring sessions at Castle Hill Library, and am available to tutor weekly, but am happy to add in sessions if needed. I'm also happy to do any phone calls/skype calls and answer questions sent over email or text outside of class hours.

Lesson rates:
1h: $50
1.5h: $75
2h: $100
For longer lessons, usually held as revision sessions nearing final exams, just send me a message and we can work out a price.

I am happy to do group sessions for a reduced cost per person, please enquire for more details.

I tutor not only during the school term, but during all school holidays for keen students, especially year 11 and 12 students who are studying all year round.


Please send me a message if interested to discuss availabilities :)
