Hello everyone! My name is Catherine and I am a High School Teacher specialising in English. I currently teach in a regional school in NSW, Stages 4,5 and 6.
I've been teaching for 15 years now and have experience in 'A' Level English (UK educational system) and the Higher School Certificate (NSW educational system), SATS and NAPLAN.
I am an English HSC marker for Paper I and I have experience teaching English Studies, English Standard, English Advanced and English Extension I - feel free to ask me about the texts that i've taught.
Approach: my teaching style is holistic in nature. I specialise in analytical writing and can teach you strategies that increase your fluency and written expression, especially under timed conditions. I can help you to create a thesis statement whilst giving you the skills to adapt it to suit any kind of question. I conference with my students individually in order to tailor my practices to their needs. This is done regularly and on a need to need basis. I appreciate originality and work best under YOUR own interpretation of texts. All that is left for me to do is to fine tune your ideas so that you can write succinctly in high pressure scenarios. If your understanding of a text is underdeveloped, I will coach you through the main ideas and concepts before we start interrogating the text for analysis.
1 hour tutoring session. This includes:
Marking x1 script with feedback
There is so much more that i can offer in terms of your educational journey in English. But if you've read this far and are still interested, drop me a line and I will be happy to assist where I can either online or face-to-face tuition.
