EducationI completed the Edecxel IGCSE in May 2010 and then successfully obtained my International Baccalaureate Diploma in May 2012. I graduated from the University of Melbourne with a Bachelor of Environments, majoring in Environmental Geography, Politics and Culture as well as a Concurrent Diploma of Global Issues.
ExperienceI received the maximum score 45 at the International Baccalaureate. Thus, I achieved a grade of 7 (full marks) for Higher Level Chemistry, Biology and English as well as Standard Level Mathematics, Geography and Spanish Ab Initio.
Having completed my secondary studies, I have assisted with in-school teaching in Theory of Knowledge as well as Geography. I believe that I can successfully provide students with a source of knowledge in both the intellectual content of the subjects I have studied as well general guidance in sitting IB exams. This is reflected in previous assistance I have provided in the aforementioned.
I graduated from the University of Melbourne in 2015, achieving a Dean's Honour Award for all three years of my study. The Deans Honour is awarded to students in the top 3% of the cohort for that year.
During my time at High School I served as a Senior School Prefect from 2011-2012 and as a House Captain from 2010-2011. After the completion of the International Baccalaureate, I interned in the Sustainable Business division of a Private Limited Corporation in Sri Lanka names MAS Holdings.

HobbiesI am an avid reader with a love for all genres, particularly contemporary South Asian literature. I also enjoy movies, Pilates and exploring the culture and cuisines of new and different places!

Shanishta is an extemely helpful tutor. She has an extremely good knowledge of the IB programme, and how to navigate the criteria to fulfil the requirements for each piece of work. Shanishta is also genuinely motivated to help students achieve their academic goals. Thank you Shanishta for all your help.
Shani is a great help as she tutors me in 5 different subjects (including Extended Essay and Theory of Knowledge) and has helped me improve in my difficulties over the course of a month. As we continue with our sessions we will work on my assignments and towards the end of my year 12 experience we will work on revising for my final IB exams.
Incredibly helpful, and worked well with the limited time that I had. Was able to adapt the teaching towards me, and relate everything back to the course very well.
