Information about Alexander - Swan View tutor
Hi! I'm nineteen years old; I've been studying politics at university since 2011, but I decided to take a break from study this year to reassess my career direction, and just to try new things - including tutoring. I'm friendly and I've been told that I'm a patient and helpful teacher. I consider myself qualified to tutor English, having graduated high school literature with a strong score, and being ranked in the top 1% population-wide for English language aptitude in a series of professionally administered tests.
I am also capable of teaching piano; I've been playing for some ten years, and although I passed my 5th grade (AMEB) practical examination in 2010, I have performed 8th grade (or above) pieces at the annual Fremantle Eisteddfod and some smaller concerts.
I undertook some tennis coaching in 2011, in which I worked with young children over the course of 6 months under the direction of a head coach; while not immediately relevant to my areas of tutoring capability, this experience has given me the confidence that I can be an effective teacher.
I have also helped classmates, and my younger sister, with English and Science-related subjects throughout my high school and university career, with positive feedback (even from my sister).
In terms of English tuition, I would prefer that students come to me with some idea of what they would like to work on, whether it be essay writing, researching and forming an argument, or anything else. From there, I like to work with the broadest ideas first before helping with the execution of those ideas, or the finer detail. After some time working with a student, I would then feel able to identify general weaknesses and direct further work towards alleviating them.
