My name is Sofie Wilcox and I’m a third year student at the University of Melbourne, majoring in Psychology and Sociology. I have been tutoring VCE English and Psychology for almost 5 years, have published a study guide, curated a statewide curriculum for Year 10 English and have given holiday lectures to over 200 students. I have a deep passion for education and assisting students to reach goals along their academic journey. Being able to have the support of a tutor allowed me to excel in my studies, as I was the recipient of the LaTrobe Law School Excellence Award for being DUX of VCE Legal Studies two years in a row. One of my key values is compassion, and with my studies in Adolescent Psychology and volunteering at Lifeline, I take extra time and care with each student to check in with how they are feeling, particularly around exam time that is often riddled with stress.
At the heart of our educational approach are our distinguished tutors, each one meticulously selected from the upper echelon of VCE English, EAL, and Literature graduates—the top 1%, to be precise. These individuals aren’t just academically brilliant; they possess the requisite passion and dedication to teaching that sets them apart.
Beyond their initial qualifications, our tutors undergo continuous training to ensure they remain at the forefront of educational techniques and pedagogies. They receive guidance and mentorship from award-winning academics and educators with PHD-level expertise. This ensures that they not only impart knowledge but do so with a refined, updated, and effective methodology.
By combining the raw talent of our tutors with seasoned academic wisdom, we provide an unparalleled learning experience for our students
