I'm a very upbeat tutor who believes that learning is best done interactively, such as through role performances, discussions and reflections (with yourself and the environment that shapes our understanding). As someone who has done literature, I found that learning Literature through high school alone can be quite intimidating because the method of teaching is very one sided. As a tutor, I believe that you could: understand Shakespeare by becoming the characters, argue with me why you feel like certain texts can be sexist, and reflect on your experiences growing up to understand why you have a certain position towards a topic.
I have studied literature for 2 years in high school as an ATAR subject and graduated with a score of 87%. I have tutored another girl in English ATAR (quite similar to Literature ATAR) and their English grade went from a C to an A- whilst I tutored them. I'm also a current university student in the nursing field which means I have to produce essays/extended responses, so I am aware of and able to meet a higher level of literacy.
Lessons must be cancelled a minimum of 10 hours in advance (so I can plan my uni schedule). If the lesson is cancelled less than 10 hours before the lesson, 50% of the lesson price will need to be payed.
I'm a high school graduate who studied Literature ATAR for the full two years, so I have experience when it comes to interpreting texts/questions, writing an essay correctly and appealing to the markers. I have covered unpopular texts such as "Cosi" (Louis Nowra) and "Ransom" (David Malouf), as well as popular texts such as "Jasper Jones" (Craig Silvey), "The Hollow Men" (T.S. Eliot), and "Othello' (Shakespeare). I also run an anonymous activist blog on Tumblr which I am constantly active on, meaning I am socially and politically aware of the beliefs/values/ideologies that shape both the reader and the text.
