Welcome! I am a Doctor of Dental Surgery student who is keen to help you achieve the marks you have always wanted!
I was just like you a few years ago, stressing about postgraduate studies and how to balance this with scoring a fantastic mark in the GAMSAT. I want to utilise my experience and skill as a high school and university tutor to help you write essays that are effective and exemplary.
I am an avid reader (my goal is to read around 80 books per year!) and love hiking in the Wollemi National Park in my spare time. I believe that writing is empowering in allowing us to express ourselves, but also critical in helping us to organise and explore our ideas about the world.
Having undertaken the GAMSAT a few times and scored in the 70s and 80s for Section 1 (comprehension) and S2 (essay writing) respectively – I hope to leverage my expertise, share some helpful tips along the way to help you increase your confidence in preparing for the GAMSAT.
GAMSAT Section II Marks: 80 (2017), 77 (2018) – 100% percentile!!
I have extensive experience working with people of all ages, from those with an ESL (English as a Second Language) background, those looking to improve their GAMSAT marks from 60s to 80s and others looking to refine and perfect their essays.
My teaching experience spans across 4+ years and more than 50+ students, with a background as a high school tutor for Advanced English and History, university tutor for philosophy and political economy students and as a GAMSAT tutor for the humanities. I draw upon my vast experience in analysing literature and writing a variety of pieces (discursive, creative, persuasive) to the essay-writing section in GAMSAT and I believe this makes a difference in the clarity, style and quality of essay writing.
