Ms Hilary Bowman

 Melbourne - Yarraville

Melbourne tutor in Philosophy, Biology, English, Essay Writing, VCE English Language, VCE English Language


I am a friendly, experienced and professional tutor, and I am looking forward to helping students achieve the best results they can!

I am currently completing my double degree of Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Arts at Monash University. In my Arts degree I have completed a double major of Philosophy and Classical Studies (Latin), and in my Science degree I am studying genetics and chemistry. I have excellent marks, and this year am moving onto Honours in science. I also have a Diploma of Languages in German, been a participant in a summer bioethics program at Yale University in the United States, and completed a year of classical studies & philosophy at the Free University of Berlin.

I have extensive experience working with children and young adults, in both an employment and volunteer capacity. I am personable and friendly, and know how to work with you to get the best results. I am very experienced working with younger children. For older students, I know the mechanics of the VCE system for the subjects I teach very well and can help guide you through such subjects with careful attention to the study design.

I completed my VCE in 2009 at Mac.Robertson Girls' High School, with an ENTER of 98.20. My subjects were Latin, English Language, Philosophy, Mathematical Methods, Chemistry and Psychology.

I have extensive private tuition experience at the secondary and tertiary level. I have also worked regularly at Melbourne Grammar (Grimwade House), Footscray City Primary School, and as a private nanny and tutor in Germany. I have worked and volunteered extensively with youth community organisations such as SYN Media and the AYCC.

I believe the best way to achieve concrete results is to really start off with a good idea of what you're aiming for and what learning style is the best way for you to achieve that - it's not all rote learning! Some subjects, such as biology, require close attention to detail, whereas others, such as philosophy, require more development of critical thinking skills and their application. There are different ways to achieve results in different subjects!

VCE Philosophy, English language and Biology are my specialised subjects. Other subjects I am happily available to tutor for include general science and maths (Primary school and years 7-10), English, and writing.

Email is a preferred method of contact, but I am happy to have a chat to you about your studies anytime.

I am located in Yarraville and can drive reasonable distances.

Looking forward to hearing from you!
