Samantha offers a FREE first / introductory lesson!
Hi there! My name is Samantha and I graduated from The Mac.Robertson Girls' High School in 2019 with an ATAR of 99.60, 49 in English Language and 46 in Maths Methods!
I am currently offering VCE 3/4 tutoring in English Language, Methods. My hourly rates are:
- Individual - $60
- Group (2+) - $40 per person
Furthermore, as a current medical student (MD) studying at Monash University, I'd be happy to provide any general advice on entry into med, UCAT and preparing for the interview to all my students who are interested in pursuing this degree!
Over the past 3 years, I have had the great pleasure of working with a diverse group of students that have allowed me to further develop and hone my tutoring skills to be able to help YOU! Here is just some of my experience:
- 1200+ hours of tutoring experience
- Privately tutored 40+ students across Year 8 - 12 from a range of schools (Mac.Rob, Ivanhoe Grammar, Balwyn, MLC and more)
- Experienced and proficient in conducting individual and small group tutoring as well as lecture-style content in large group settings
- Volunteer tutor at RESN and lecturer at accessED - two educational non-profit organisations
I thoroughly enjoyed learning these subjects as a student and as your tutor, I hope to be able to transfer these understandings to you to help you achieve your academic goals! Although these subjects can be quite content-heavy at times, I believe adopting the right learning styles and study techniques are key to achieving highly in them - skills that I aim to provide as we cover the content for the year.
As someone who did not undertake tutoring for Psychology and Methods during my studies, I champion understanding and breaking down content into digestible and applicable concepts over the volume of practice. Especially considering my SS is not by definition a high score for Methods, it is exactly this reason that has pushed me to work even harder as a tutor to dive deeper into each concept to translate understandings to my students that go beyond the SACs and exams! This is something I hope to share with you throughout the year!
For Eng Lang, I'm aware that sometimes you might just want someone to look over an essay or an AC over structured tutoring. I'd be more than happy to assist in this area with a small commission! (Please get in touch if this is the case!)
On a more general basis, you can expect to receive:
- Structured lessons tailored to your needs
- Targeted and concise slides with notes and practice questions
- Practice papers leading up to the final exam
- Available anytime outside of lessons for any further questions (doesn't have to be content-related!)
VCE is a journey for every student and I would be delighted to be a part of yours. However, the most important thing is to find the right tutor for YOU, so my first lesson is free as a trial lesson to see if I suit your style! If you end up thinking I can help you, then we can proceed with classes :)
Places are limited so please feel free to contact me if you are interested or have any further questions through the website! I look forward to hearing from you :))
Amazing Methods tutor, would highly recommend. So lovely and made everything super easy to understand - Methods 3/4 student
Thank you for your work with (student) over the last 2 years. It has made such a difference to her Maths journey. You have helped to restore her enjoyment and confidence in the subject. I'm so happy that she has had a strong female Maths and Science role model in you to show her that she was capable of learning - Methods 3/4 parent
Samantha has been such an amazing tutor these past two years! Her wealth of resources along with her engaging and careful teaching style has helped me through my Maths classes immensely. After our lessons together, I can now tackle maths questions with much more ease and care. I owe all my success in Methods 1/2 to Samantha, and could not recommend her any more highly if you're considering tutoring! - Methods 1/2 student
