My name is Miss Hansen and I am a secondary school teacher at a private school in the North-West of Sydney and am currently in my third year of teaching. I teach HSC Modern History and junior History and Geography. I have experience teaching English (Stage 4) and Religion (all Stages) also.
The subjects and skills that I will be tutoring are as follows:
- HSC Modern History
This is year 11 and 12 Modern History. I can help the student with source analysis skills (Section I of the HSC Exams), essay and extended response structure, study skills such as developing a timetable for study and creating sound study notes (I like to use Cornell's). I am also happy to sit with students and work through past HSC papers and provide feedback on their work and then work along side them to help with examination preparation.
- Year 7-10 History
I can help with the core topics for each year. History skills such as source analysis, timelines, writing for a historical extended response question, exam preparation, and study skills all need to be developed especially in the student wishes to do Modern or Ancient History for HSC.
- Year 7-11 Geography
Can help with all core topics. Working on Geographical skills such as map reading, graphs, geographical tools.
- Year 7 & 8 English
Can help with essay structure, techniques, and topics studied in Years 7 & 8.
- Essay Skills
For students not only in school but also starting university. Can help with essay structure, referencing, editing etc.
I am happy to tutor students in Kellyville, Castle Hill, Rouse Hill and surrounding suburbs. I am available from 4:30pm Mondays, from 4:00pm Wednesdays & Fridays. I am happy to come to your home or meet at the local library.
Looking forward to hearing from you!
My education philsophy is:
I believe in EMPOWERING and EQUIPPING students in their learning. This means that I strive to ensure students know their potential, set realistic goals and then work towards meeting those goals. I believe in students being self-motivated learners who aim to do thier best at all times. As teahers, parents and tutors, it is our job to get along side the student and help them when necessary and guide them in the right direction.
I am not a tutor that will be writing students essays, assessments or doing their homework for them. This will not benefit them in the long run as the HSC and exams can't be completed by the tutor and will test the student's knowledge and understanding.
