My tutoring is individually tailored to the students' requirements. If the tutoring is intended to be ongoing and more content/ revision based (opposed to single essays etc) I like to have students complete a VARK questionnaire, which analyses their dominant, and less dominant learning styles. I use the results as a guide for teaching the student - harnessing one's dominant learning style is a fantastic way to make learning more engaging.
Alternatively, if the student requires input regarding essays, creative writing etc , I like to brainstorm with them regarding core themes, interpretations of those core themes, alternative views etc in order to get them thinking about how they might plan their writing. I also like to provide students with writing tips regarding structure i.e the PEEL principle for essays. I am happy to provide feedback for drafts, however I will certainly not write any part of the assessment due to this being in breech of academic integrity.
I'm currently studying my Honours year in Psychology, I am also a published author (Text journal, Hunter Writers Centre, Words in Winter Trentham etc). For the past 3 years I have worked with primary, high school and tertiary students to improve their analytical skills and writing (both academic and creative). During highschool I completed English and English Extension and received many writing prizes. These days, my language skills have enabled me to gain high marks in written assessment for university (my highest grade thus far has been 92% for a lab report). I am also working towards completing my first poetry collection under the guidance of a university mentor. Tutoring students is often the hi light of my day, as I love seeing them engage with the content, and feel proud of their improvements and achievements.
