  • History and English Tutor Specialising in Year 6 Students Entering Year 7

About Me

**94.25 HSC ATAR - Hello! My name is Olivia, and I specialise in tutoring Year 6 NSW students who are entering Year 7, who want to succeed in History and English throughout high school (Years 7-12). My approach is to encourage an appreciation and understanding of the subject, to enable students to develop the confidence and skills to obtain the best possible mark in assignments and exams. I focus on developing exam technique and essay writing, and believe a strong foundation is the best way to achieve future success in later years, particularly in the HSC.

I also tutor Year 11-12 students in HSC Advanced English, English Extension 1, English Extension 2, Ancient History and Modern History. My teaching style is collaborative and open, where I encourage students to think critically about their prescribed text or historical source, and incorporate their analysis into their essay writing.

I am currently studying a Bachelor of Physiotherapy at Western Sydney University (HD average), and have completed a Bachelor of Animal and Veterinary Bioscience (Honours) at The University of Sydney.

I achieved a BAND 6 (the highest mark) in the following Higher School Certificate (HSC) subjects:
ADVANCED ENGLISH - 94/100
MODERN HISTORY - 94/100
MUSIC 1 - 92/100
ENGLISH EXTENSION 2 - 46/50

I can best help as a tutor as I encourage students to ask questions and seek clarification on key concepts, which improves their understanding and knowledge of the subject. I have a positive mindset, a 'can do' attitude, and have great listening skills. Lessons are planned to best suit each individual's goals and offer honest, constructive feedback to enhance student's academic performance.

The students I have tutored have significantly improved their academic performance, and are scoring above 90% in their assessments.

I have a Working With Children Check (WWC).

Please feel free to contact me at any time!

Reviews:
Olivia has created a phenomenal learning environment that encourages critical thinking. She is a welcoming and approachable person, who is always willing to provide help where needed. In my time spent with Olivia, she has greatly helped clarify key concepts that I find I have struggled with in school. She has helped me develop this understanding by providing clear and concise feedback on my essays - feedback which I find myself still applying to this day. Overall, under Olivia's tuition, I find I have significantly improved and refined my skills of essay writing. She is an amazing tutor who I would highly recommend!
