I am a friendly, down to earth person who really wants to make a difference in the quality of education Australia wide and possibly beyond. I am 100% devoted to all the students that I teach and really want them to achieve their academic dreams! I do not only teach my students – but I develop excellent rapport with them, this ensures that they are not petrified of asking me questions and always feel like they can approach me with any type of problem they may have. I have a vast amount of interests these including traveling, philosophy, psychology, reading, writing, teaching, business as well as personal development. I am very curious about how things work and integrate this into my teaching style – to ensure that students see the bigger picture.

Within private sessions, I progress through the entire curriculum with the student with a close focus on question answering techniques. This enables students to understand how to convert their knowledge of their topic, and translate it into practical use. Quite often, a student knows the theory, but can’t connect how it needs to be used when answering a question! This is very frustrating for many students, because the practical side of their studies are not developed well.

In addition to this I have a passion about teaching students to build self-confidence, a healthy self-image, their ability to tap into self-motivation which are skills that are important for a lifetime! These factors determine the level of educational success obtained by individuals and therefore I find it absolutely imperative to integrate it into the tutoring sessions.

Ms Viji Radha

20+yrs experience tutoring – South-Eastern Suburbs

Specialising in all VCE English subjects

$60 p/h in person (+$15 if at student’s home), $45 online tutoring
$30 per 2-hour class (if more than 3 students)

In addition to having taught high school English for the past 15 years, with 10 years in a Catholic school and the rest in public schools, I have also been an ex-journalist, as well as an editor of English fiction and non-fiction. I am currently working on my Masters in Education at The University of Melbourne, specialising in teaching reading and writing to high school students. In order to maximise my time for research, I teach part time at the Melbourne International College of English and work as a Contract Relief Teacher at a select entry high school in Victoria. English is my first language, and needless to say, I love reading and writing; like any skill, I strongly believe what the essayist, Emerson, once wrote:

“That which we persist in doing becomes easier – not that the nature of the task has changed, but our ability to do has increased.”

In short, my motto is simple: If you are willing, I am able – to increase your ability as an active reader and effective writer.
