Greetings! My name is Sarah Fishlock and I am a fully qualified secondary school and adult learning teacher (Post-Graduate Diploma of Teaching, University of Melbourne, 2012). I have 5 years of experience tutoring students from secondary school to adult age in a variety of subjects (See below for details).
Originally a Melbourne-ite, I have recently moved to Castlemaine to pursue my love of teaching with my small business Fish Out Of Water Tutoring.
My home office is in central Castlemaine. I also travel to Castlemaine outskirts, Bendigo, Kangaroo Flat, Malsbury, Kyenton, Woodend and any other areas that are public transport/bicycle accessible (I recently had a traumatic car accident, so no driving for me!).
I hold a current Working with Children's Card, which requires a full police check to obtain.
I am a kind, friendly tutor who truly listens to her students and does her utmost to help all who need it. No question is deemed silly or irrelevant and I will never judge a student for not knowing something.
I came from a working-class background and public school so I know what it’s like to feel like a fish out of water when it comes to education and academia. I use my life experience as well as my strong academic knowledge to help those in need.
If you are a parent looking for a tutor who understands VELS / AUSVELS / VCE curriculum, then I can work with your child to reach their full potential.
Years 7 – 8: English, Humanities/SOSE, Science, Maths, LOTE.
Years 9 – 10: English, ESL, History, German, French.
VCE: English, English Language, English as a Second Language (ESL), History, Psychology, Biology, Health and Human Development.
Essay and report writing skills, referencing/bibliographies, general study skills, understanding journal article jargon, university level language skills.
ADULT ESL STUDENTS.
If you are an adult in need of a more conversational class, business English, or help with university essays, resumes, cover letters or just day-to-day English tasks, I will work with you until you feel confidant in tackling these tasks.
I can also take ESL classes with pre-prepared work and homework using IELTS/Academic textbooks and a variety of other resources... it's up to you!
