Teaching Experience for English
1000 hours

I have 3+ years of experience tutoring English to students of all ages. In the past I have assisted students with many aspects of their English studies, including grammar, general reading comprehension, test and exam preparation, and writing, in both 1-on-1 and class settings (of up to 20+ students). I am particularly experienced with helping students improve their ability to write structured essays: including pieces that analyse texts, article analysis, philosophical essays amongst other types. As well as teaching students from year 7-9 (can potentially negotiate teaching younger students), I can offer extensive support to students doing VCE English, EAL, and Literature at both 1/2 and 3/4 levels.

In addition, I have a lot of experience teaching students for whom english is a second language, particularly students whose first language is Chinese. As well as teaching privately, to the present I have worked for a number of companies including: The Intuition Centre, Meridian One, St Vincents Institute of Education, The Elite Education and Migration Centre, ISA Australia (which involved teaching Japanese high school students in Tokyo, Kawasaki, and Gifu areas). I enjoy the process of building rapport with students through tutoring, and like seeing them improve. I also think I'm a very gentle and empathetic person who can help students to feel confident and empowered, even when at times they perhaps don't feel so positive about English — for instance, during exam times.

Teaching Experience for Psychology
500 hours

Within the last 3 years, I have tutored a number of students in Psychology, both privately, and with companies such as The Elite Education and Migration Centre, and Meridian One. I can assist students with writing essays and lab reports, as well as understanding and revising content for exams. As I am undertaking (and have almost completed) a Psychology major at the University of Melbourne, my knowledge of Psychology, Neuroscience, and research in the Cognitive Sciences more generally is relevant and up to date. I received a study score of 42 for VCE Psychology, and scores consistently in the 85-95 range for University Psychology subjects.

Teaching Experience for Philosophy

I am majoring in Philosophy at the University of Melbourne and have taught a few students privately in VCE and also University level Philosophy. Much of my experience teaching english, particularly in helping students improve essay writing, applies to writing and thinking philosophically. Please enquire as to your specific needs regarding Philosophy tutoring by sending me a message:)
