About Me

My name is Sophia Ao, and I am a current year 11 student at The Mac.Robertson Girls’ High School. I am currently studying unit 3/4 biology, as well as unit 1/2 chemistry, maths methods, specialist maths, English literature and German.

I have been tutoring younger students for 2 years and in this time, I have been able to refine my teaching methods so that all students of different academic abilities are able to comprehend and retain information, equipping them with the skills to ace their studies.

I have broken the Victorian school curriculum into simple categories and am prepared to deliver these to your children in a simple and methodical approach, with weekly mini-tests, quizzes,worksheets and practice exams.

Not only will I help your child develop exam techniques and learn new concepts, I will be there to support and foster a love for learning as well as confidence in themselves. These are also essential for success in any student, and I am genuinely interested in helping your child grow.

I am very involved at my school, from sports to debate to academics at local, state and national levels.

I am extremely flexible and ready to teach your child at just about any time!

Subject

With my love of writing combined with my passion for public speaking, English is one of my strong subjects that I have been tutoring students in for 2 years now.
I enjoy introducing students to interesting and wordly topics, and encouraging them to think about their writing from different perspectives, equipping them with the skills and techniques examiners are looking for.

As a tutor who has successfully gained entrance into Mac.Rob, as well as tutored other students for the exam, I am ready to deliver the content and preparation you need in a simple and engaging manner.
I have divided exam questions into different categories, and have a set plan and order in which I cover them in. Each lesson I begin with mini-quizzes to help students recall information and revise over gaps in their knowledge.

As a C1/ native English speaker with a real love for writing and national level public speaking experience, I will be able to help you prepare for your upcoming IELTS exam in a simple and enjoyable way. I have found that past papers, practice materials and lots of speaking practice are the best way for students to overcome their troubles with IELTS English. Learning a foreign language can be very daunting, and as someone who grew up with another language, I truly understand the troubles and gaps in knowledge a foreign student may have.

Public speaking and debate is one of my favourite hobbies- you can often find me catching up on news, having discussions with friends and engaging in debates with myself. I have succeeded in debate and public speaking to a national level, having recently been invited to Sydney to speak at the Australian-ASEAN Youth Forum. I have also co-authored and performed slam poetry, been invited the state UN conferences, as well as represented my school in the Plain English Speaking Award competition.
Public speaking is such a genuine hobby of mine, and I am keen to help you further your skills, whether it be to build confidence or to nail that next speech!
