Unfortunately I only offer tutoring from Five Dock library or UTS Library, as travelling to students homes limits my ability to hold back to back sessions. If travelling to these locations is inconvenient for you, I can offer sessions over Skype.
About18th in the State for Modern History and 2nd in the HTA Extension History Essay Prize in 2016.
*2019 COHORT: I have learned the new core syllabi for both HSC Modern and Ancient History.*
Hey! My name is Susie, and I'm a 2016 HSC All-rounder recipient, offering tutoring for HSC Modern History, Ancient History and History Extension! Achieving consistently high marks within the above subjects, along with placing 18th in NSW for Modern History and 2nd in the state-wide HTA Extension History Essay Prize for my Major Work, it is clear that throughout my school career I demonstrated a strong work ethic and drive to succeed - one that I will similarly demonstrate in making sure that you achieve your very best as well (scroll down to see my 2017 students results)! Along with now over a years experience tutoring, I have experience teaching both Modern and Ancient History on a mass scale, writing full-length, professionally published study guides, and running lectures for both subjects at UTS with ATAR Notes three times a year.
My final HSC results, which awarded me an ATAR of 97.80 in 2016 were as follows; Modern History (96/100), Ancient History (91/100), History Extension (48/50), English Advanced (93/100), Drama (91/100), and Studies of Religion I (47/50).
Tutoring sessions are catered to the needs of the student, however there will always be an overriding focus on the crucial skills, such as essay writing and source analysis, required to succeed. Content tutoring is also available, however keep in mind that due to the nature of these subjects, my specialities are limited to:
Modern History: WW1, Russia and the Soviet Union, Leon Trotsky and The Cold War. (As of 2018, I am also offering content tutoring for Germany!)
Ancient History: Cities of Vesuvius, The Julio-Claudians, Agrippina the Younger and Spartan Society to the Battle of Leuctra.
History Extension: What is History?, Western Imperialism.
Throughout 2017, my 15 students received consistently high results. More than 60% of my students ranked 1st within their cohort for history. Four students received full marks in at least one section of the Modern History or History Extension Trial Exams (one student receiving 100% for the Modern History exam overall). All history extension students received the highest mark within their cohort for their major work, one student receiving 100%. In 2017, none of my student received below a Band 5 (80% +) for Modern or Ancient History, with many achieving a Band 6 (90% +), the highest mark received was 94. None of my history extension students received below an E4 for History Extension, with the highest mark being 48/50. I am confident that my students will receive similar results in the 2018 HSC.
I am available for private tutoring at $50 p/hour, and group tutoring at $40 p/hour per person. I am based in the Sydney Inner West and conduct my lessons at either Five Dock library or UTS (location dependant upon the time of your session). If either location is inconvenient for you, I also offer skype tutoring at $40 p/hour!
Feel free to message me for more information, I look forward to hearing from you :)

History extension was no different, My first assessment task was a 20/25 for q1, what is history, in the Half Yearlies. But following tutoring sessions, I achieved an e4 in my extension project and in my trials, full marks (25/25) in question 1 and a 21/25 in question 2!!
From these sessions,
I have found that not only have my ranks and marks rose substantially (now achieving an equal 1st rank in Modern and a 1st in Extension), but my ability to construct essays, arguments, as well as thinking critically, has substantially improved and most importantly, my passion for history.
Susie is a lovely, intelligent and friendly tutor, with an outstanding amount of passion and strong ability to teach in all area of history - I would recommend her to anyone who wants to improve their marks, ranks and love for history!
Before starting with Susie, I had little to no idea how to write a proper English essay (very problematic in my case as I do three units of English) I saw improvement within the first few sessions as Susie could quickly remedy areas that I needed to improve on. She is next level when it comes to modern history. With her stellar knowledge and help, I saw able to rank 1st within my cohort during Term 2 as well come in the top 10 for English. My essay writing improved so dramatically overall that I managed to also rank 4th in legal studies, 3rd in Studies of Religion, and 2nd in Extension 1 English (subjects which she didn't even directly teach!)
I honestly could not imagine doing my HSC without her guidance!
I would HIGHLY recommend her services - she is brilliant, clever and lovely to be around.
I would give my highest of recommendations to Susie as your next potential tutor!
She is truly phenomenal, both academically and interpersonally. It's clear to me that her intellect is second to none, and I can personally attest to her communication skills and educational abilities. I've seen hundreds of students in fits of laughter at her jokes, only to turn deadly silent as she begins to explain something that's never made sense to them before. Our lecture attendees consistently rate her as exceptional, and anecdotally, I've only ever heard students rave about her lectures.
I fully endorse Susie, and recommend anyone looking for tutoring in her subjects to send her a message.
