I provide one-to-one academic tuition for students preparing for HSC English(Advanced), HSC Standard English, HSC English Extension 1, Year 11 Preliminary HSC English, and Year 11 Preliminary HSC Modern History, HSC Modern History, HSC Society & Culture. In humanities subjects, my overall emphasis is on improving students' writing skills and mastery of the academic essay form.
For HSC students, my tuition is completely syllabus focused and ensures students have detailed knowledge of their set texts. My curriculum knowledge is up to date and reflects the current prescriptions of texts by NESA. In addition, I keep up to date with curriculum reform. I am a qualified teacher, experienced lecturer and tutor, and member of the English Teachers Association NSW.
I provide tutorial sessions at my home tuition studio and dedicated one-on-one tuition. Most students visit me on a weekly basis, but I negotiate a flexible individual tuition plan with each student.
I am a qualified NSW secondary school teacher, with methods in English, Modern History, and Society & Culture. I have been tutoring specifically HSC English since 2014 and tutoring and teaching humanities subjects since 1998. Previously, I have tutored as a temporary college lecturer in philosophy at St Anne's College, Oxford, and lectured on a sessional basis at UNSW and the University of Sydney; I have also tutored first-year classes at Macquarie University. In addition to my MTeach degree (English, HSIE), I hold a doctorate (DPhil) in analytical philosophy from the University of Oxford.
My experience in the tertiary sector is largely with first year university students, while my practice in the secondary sector is focused on senior high school students and includes Years 9,10, 11, and 12 HSC. I have tutored students from both the public and private education sectors, both selective and high achieving comprehensive schools. I am well placed and experienced to help senior students gain the academic skills and marks that they need to get into and succeed at university.
