Personal Description:

I achieved a 44 study score in VCE Literature at Melbourne High School (top 3%), and an ATAR of 97.50. I am a current Law/ Economics student at Monash University. I also working as a private tutor in Law and as a retail worker at a book store.

Tuition Experience:

I have been tutoring VCE Literature for 3 years. I have discussed the new (2017) curriculum with teachers and have adapted my tutoring for the current study design. My past students are now enrolled in prestigious courses such as Monash Law, Melbourne Arts and Music Composition at the University of California, Berkley.

Tutoring Approach:

VCE Literature Tutor - Nikhil

Bio: My name is Nikhil and I'm looking for VCE Literature students who are interested in private tutoring. I have a passion for languages and take the subject very seriously. It is important to have an approach in Literature that is structured and disciplined to truly feel comfortable and perform well in the subject. For me, a great tutoring relationship involves mutual preparation and ambition.

My Tutorials: My goal is for students to be able to formulate creative ideas, plan an essay that progresses logically and be able to critically evaluate their own writing. I teach in a style that enables students to be able to write an essay on any topic under time pressure. I dedicate a lot of my time outside of class to providing my students with detailed online feedback to practice essays and helping to address fluency and planning issues.

I always keep in mind that my students want to excel in SACs and their exams. I like to provide university level literary analyses to students and spend time carefully preparing for upcoming assessments. For students that are especially stressed, I am always happy to accomodate my tutoring hours.

Preferred Texts: Although I am happy to prepare for any text, I am particularly interested in classical plays (Euripides, Socrates, Shakespeare) and modernist poetry (TS Eliot, Sylvia Plath). I will generally ask new students what texts they are studying and endeavour to read all their texts.
