I follow the VCAA Victorian Curriculum framework to structure my lessons (just like your school teacher!). I aim to make lessons fun and engaging through various pedagogical teaching methods such as discussion, modelled learning and group work (if applicable). I am more than happy to tailor lessons to best suit your learning style (such as visual learning, ICT) if at all possible.
My teaching philosophy is a critical and personal understanding of the text will guarantee improved marks. Lessons will not only engage with texts, your values and how you perceive the world.
My lessons are for anyone who wants to learn and improve their English speaking, reading, writing skills. I have a friendly demeanour and am patient with my students. I want to see that they perform well and I work hard to acheive that.
I provide a friendly, unimposing attitude to academia. By demonstrating the basic structures of an essay, ways to simplify and clarify and how to sift through ideas, I can help students learn to write confidently.
I tutor according to your needs, moving at a comfortable pace and covering as many concepts as I can. I focus on clarity and simplicity, and need my students to be self-motivated and have the initiative to want to improve themselves.
I'm a recent graduate of Suzanne Cory High School and I've maintained a 93% average for both Year 11 and Year 12. My lessons will include regular worksheets and notes to solidify concepts. To ensure you are prepared for your SACS and the exams, I have prepared planned lessons for 40 weeks which will greatly help you achieve a high study score for the subject.
My teaching method is very patient but critical. I will provide personal resources in order to help you familiarise yourself with the subject and to confidently prepare you for assessments. These resources include summary notes, practice questions and sample essays.
I base my classes on YOU. All methods I devise are based on where you need help. I also know that the best way for the majority to learn is to have practical applications. That is, not sitting down and filling out a sheet, but discussing the issues and how we can improve them. Most of my learning tasks have some form of practical task.
I am an English tutor with experience teaching high school and University students. I focus on building essay writing and analytical skills that can be transferred to other subjects. We will meet at every stage of the writing process to help you plan, write, edit and polish essays.
English is highly subjective, and requires development of ideas and opinions rather than clear-cut answers. For this reason, my objective is to empower students to think through and present their ideas with confidence and clarity.
I like to believe that anything that is to be taught or learnt, has to be done slowly. I like to teach and read along or study along with the student aloud and slow. The method I believe to be the simplest and easiest way to teach and learn is to understand the concept through questions and as a story.
I base my teaching around the Australian Curriculum and current practices implemented in primary schools, such as the inquiry based approach to learning. I am passionate about teaching students to really imbed and gain a deep understanding of relevant content as opposed to simply regurgitating memorised fact.
I am a confident, kind, sensitive, earnest and enthusiastic communicator who is able to disseminate and make complex concepts clear and comprehensible.
My mantra is: make every topic relevant to the student's life and interest. The reason I love language class is that you can customise any learning experience to make it relevant to your own interests. For example, if in my academic English class we were learning about referencing, I could ask a student to bring their favourite book or newspaper.
I endeavour to empower students by helping them cultivate confidence in their life-long learning abilities. I adopt a personalised approached to tuition, infused with patience, positivity and compassion. Given my multidisciplinary background, I strongly believe in the importance of learning to think, write and communicate creatively and critically.
I base my classes around open ended questions that can lead to discussion and in turn critical analysis. I feel that the best way to learn and improve is to discuss first, create a plan with objectives and goals, and then seek to improve through further study.
I specialise in Essay writing (particularly for high school) and general grammar editing of any written work. I excel at writing and achieved 100% in all my Year 12 assessments by learning a few simple ways to write and structure an essay effectively.
My teaching method involves working around an individual's focus. I usually get the student to give me an idea of their understanding or interpretation of a work and I help build on that with my knowledge and what is required from the course content.
I believe in helping students understand the ideas and principles behind what they are learning on a conceptual basis rather than relying on rote memorization. Ultimately the goal of tuition is to develop students who are capable and independent learners.
I'm able to adapt my lessons to students from all educational levels, from F's to A+'s, by individually tailoring them to each student's needs. I understand the different ways students learn, and hope to be able to use this understanding to help each and every student understand their content seamlessly.
My method of teaching is similar my method of understanding complex concepts at Uni. You should always break them down into simple logic. I have always idolized Richard Feynman's technique of simplifying complex ideas into vivid imaginations. I believe that everything is simple as long as you understand the fundamental concepts behind it. And a diagram always helps.
I am a very patient teacher who can work with a range of ages (from primary to high school). I'm aware every child learns differently so i will often focus on how to best teach a child based on how they learn.
I successfully achieved participation by utilising creativity and incorporating a ‘real life’ connection into the classroom to gain and maintain students’ interests and encourage self-expression. I incorporate exciting thematic units to encourage student engagement and foster a fun and active learning environment that enable students to develop critical thinking and problem-solving abilities.
My teaching method revolves mainly around what the student is struggling with and what can be improved upon. I would structure classes around building upon practice exams or actual exams undertaken by the student and finding out what can be improved upon, largely looking at sentence structure and the use of language.
I am a warm and positive person who seeks to encourage and support students in a passionate and positive manner to help them feel encouraged, safe, supported and proud of themselves. Through mainly implementing a holistic and humanistic approach teaching, my aim is to encourage students to reach their personal potential, no matter their academic performance level.
I begin with the premise that ALL students have what it takes to achieve their academic goals. Completing a Masters in Education (Inclusive Learning) has given me the tools to meet the learning needs of all of my students. Our sessions will be informative, fun and creative.
It is quite simple- I like to teach! Teaching brings me joy and allows me to refine and enhance my skills and knowledge lesson after lesson. In return, my lessons allow students to feel confident, engaged, well-informed and motivated in their studies.
I like to look at my students' goals, strengths and weaknesses and go from there. This provides students with an opportunity to let me help them use their strengths to fight their weaknesses, and see success in their results.
My teaching method revolves around the development of three crucial skills. 1. Close examination of the text. (This skill dictates the quality of your response). 2. Construction/Structure. (Ensuring arguments are presented logically and appropriately). 3. Expression (Finer details such as spelling, grammar, vocabulary and fluidity.
I try to build a friendly relationship with the student from the first meeting. With a welcoming and approachable demeanour, students won't be afraid to try new and/or difficult exercises.
