Biranna - VCE Student
"I decided I needed an English tutor for extra help during year 12. having a tutor allowed me to have a second perspective on what I was learning at school. I also decided I needed a tutor as one on one lessons would further my understanding on subjects as a teacher with 23 other students could not.
My lessons with Sarah were usually an hour long and we would do multiple tasks to assist with that i was learning in class. We created a 'vocab bank' to demonstrate a larger vocabulary and I would write down objectives and ways to begin sentences alternatively. We would look as essay writing by myself and other students and I learnt how to write higher quality essays. We would plan essays and continue to edit other essays I has previously written.
In our lessons we would also find background information on characters in the novels I was studying and use that insight to fully grasp an understanding on the texts. The notes taken during our lessons would be emailed to me so I could look over it during the week when I studied.
Through tutoring I was able to greatly improve my marks. Having a second person who has a vested interest in my education helped me to achieve higher. I learnt how to think about ideas for myself instead of just resighting what my class mates and teacher has said.
The lessons would act as a revision and due to that I found that revising was mush easier to do when you have structure in your planning. As the year went on I found an interest in what I was learning and I was more driven to achieve the
highest mark possible.
I would highly recommend Sarah as a tutor for anyone who has a little self doubt. Sarah has the ability to bring out the best in you."
