 Profile

Ex 2012 Student from Cherrybrook Technology High School.

ATAR over 90.

Graduated with a Bachelor of Law and Arts from Macquarie University in 2017.

I have had over 6 years experience as a self employed tutor and have consistently received positive evaluations from both students and parents.

I have a Working with Children's check which is valid until 2019.

In the past, I have been employed at other tutoring agencies including 'Top of the Class professional tutoring' and 'Power Coaching College' and am currently working at 'North-Shore Coaching College' where I teach classes of students ranging from year 7 - 12.

As a law student and working as a graduate lawyer, I understand the importance of succinct and effective writing skills.

I have also had past work experience as an assistant to the Macquarie Dean of Law and edit publications for the Macquarie Journal of International and Comparative Environmental Law, where I've learnt the importance of grammar skills and appropriate expression.

On a personal level, I like to think of myself as reliable, patient and friendly :)
