I'm a third year uni student from University of Wollongong. My major is in English Literature, and I offering tutoring for all High School English classes.

I am passionate about sharing my love of English to younger students. I remember the academic demands I faced during school, and because of this I am empathetic with my students and their individual challenges - I want to see my students reach their academic potential. I understand their need to be confident in their comprehension and expression of English, even if it is not their strongest subject. The lesson structure must commence with a clear objective, so that each student understands what they need to achieve from the lesson. Objectives need to be flexible depending on the individual’s weaknesses and strengths.
My teaching method aims to break down each lesson into a clearly defined task with a clear and straightforward goal to achieve by the end of the session.
I also use the experience I have gained from studying English Literature as my major at University.

The rate may vary depending on the distance I would have to travel in order to tutor (just considering distance, and fuel for my car)

I teach school english, test prep, poetry, text commentary, dissertation, world literature. For the following level(s): primary school, early high school, year 10, year 11-12, TAFE, adult education, undergraduate, diploma/certificate, postgraduate, phd, early childhood education.
I give lessons in person, at the student's home.

Kesha Makalia 's Experience

I am studying a Bachelor of Arts at the University of Wollongong, with English Literature and History as my Double Major. I have tutored two High School Students in English, both of whom gained a deeper understanding of this discipline and their texts under study; they have passed all their assignments and exams during the past year I have worked with them and this has been deeply satisfying. My mother is a Secondary English and Drama Teacher. She was my English teacher and with her counsel, I excelled in English. She also showed me the value of believing in students, even if they do not always fully comprehend the nuances of language, tenacity and discipline will reap rewards.
The challenge of inspiring students to develop the reading and writing skills so they may successfully explore the language within literature is a motivating force in why I love to tutor English.
