AboutHi, my name is Rebecca, and I am a fourth year university student currently studying a combined Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Education, with teaching specialisations in English and history. I have been tutoring since I completed the HSC in 2012 and I am eager to work with students to help them to succeed.
During Year 12 I studied both English Advanced and English Extension 1, as well as Ancient History, Modern History and History Extension, and achieved an ATAR of 99.15. As such, I have a thorough understanding of the requirements of these subjects, as well as the strategies and skills required to study and write effectively. In addition, I am consistently working to expand my own knowledge and improve both my writing and teaching skills as I undertake my Arts/Education degree at university.
My approach to tuition:
Over the past four years, I have worked with a wide range of students to help them to improve their work and build their confidence in relation to their English studies. I always strive to focus on a student’s strengths whilst helping them to develop key skills, including:
- Essay writing
- Textual analysis
- Answering exam-style questions
- Creative writing
- Compiling study notes
As an education student, I understand the importance of individualised learning for students of all abilities. As such, I conduct flexible one-to-one tutoring sessions that respond to the specific educational needs of each student.
