PhD student providing English, History, Politics and Society and Culture tutoring in Adelaide

Methodology

My personal tuition style is blended (learner-centred) with a strong thrust in facilitative or inquiry based learning. I understand that different students require different tutoring styles, which makes me highly adaptable and versatile. I am inclusive in nature and tend to tailor learning to students’ needs without losing focus on the appropriate subject matter. I encourage hands-on learning and provide guidance and support for students through the learning process. I expect students to play an active and participatory role in order to achieve critical learning outcomes.

Background

I am a PhD candidate who enjoys working with and supporting students. As a trained teacher who holds a Bachelor’s degree in Education (English and Literature), I have been able to assist students to achieve their learning goals through face to face and e-tutoring. I have intermittently served as a tutor for five years. I previously worked with students, teachers and parents to assess and discuss students’ learning needs and design responsive action plans. I possess a positive attitude and a passion to assist learners progressively improve along the learning curve.

Apart from being a student, I am also a mentor and write analytical articles that get published on a monthly basis. My writing can therefore give you a sense of the quality of my work and grasp of the English language. I have also been a sessional tutor at the university. I have closely tutored and mentored five students in the past who have gone to become successful at different stages in their lives. One for example achieved excellent grades to make it to a reputable high school. Another has successfully secured a very good job with an international agency.
