I am currently completing my Graduate Diploma in Education after having completed my Honours in English at UWA and am very keen to impart some of my enthusiasm for English on to other students. I know that many students find high school English boring but I'm committed to finding some aspect of interest and translating that into good grades. I have tutored from years 4 to 12 and also done debating coaching for some years so I can communicate well with high school students and primary students alike. My coaching has also equipped me to help improve students' public speaking skills, something which forms a part of assessment throughout high school and can be daunting to some students.
