EducationI study at Monash University, where I hold a scholarship, have a WAM over 80 (that’s above a high distinction average) and a GPA over 3.7. I am completing a major in literature studies and a minor in history. I have just finished an exchange program at Queen's University, Canada. I was a debater from 2010-2013 and debating captain in 2013. I am an award-winning writer and speaker, and a published journalist who is involved in the literary sector. Lately, I’ve been busy volunteering at the Emerging Writer’s Festival.
I completed VCE in 2013, achieving an ATAR of 93.1, with my highest score in VCE English (46) and least an A average in all my other subjects. I won the Global Politics Award for my school (awarded to the top Global Politics student) and a Merit in English (awarded to the top 5 English students).

I started tutoring VCE students in 2014. Since then I have taken a range of students, from mature aged students who are completing their VCE, to year 10 students who are looking for tutoring through to year 12.
I take great pride in my student's achievements, whether it's reaching their academic goals, finding new enjoyment in a text or increasing their confidence. My students have noticed a significant improvement whilst under my tutelage. One student came to me after her last SAC scored a 3/10. Together we aimed to get her to 6/10 for her next; she received 7.5. This improvement occurred over 4 sessions.
My unique ability as a tutor is being able to teach students how to approach and answer a question; vital skills which are often missed in the classroom. It's all very well to learn quotes, but you also need to learn how to approach essay questions, exams, and SACs. I work very hard to ensure that each student is taught in a manner that works for them and persist until I find the right learning strategy.
HobbiesI love all things creative - I'm teaching myself piano, have tried all sorts of dancing, I love scrapbooking and have recently discovered animation and photography. I also love movies, but doesn't everyone!
My favourite book is The Little Prince. My favourite film, apart from The Little Prince, is Forrest Gump.
