James Fagan BA, MA, Pgrad Dip, Dip Ed, specializes in the humanities and is a PhD student currently researching international relations in Asia. James is a qualified teacher and has classroom teaching experience from Haileybury and St Anthony's. James is passionate about the humanities, and is eager to mentor and tutor students through Secondary, VCE and tertiary level courses.

I started tutoring in early 2016. Last year I tutored two students for VCE English and one student for VCE History: Revolutions. Our sessions reinforced the skills they were building in class and helped to guide their study towards their final exam. Each week, I helped students prepare for their upcoming SAC's with assistance of Oxford and Insight guides tailored to the curriculum. I strongly recommend the purchase of text guides to aide students in their study and tutelage.

I currently have four year 12 VCE English students, one year 9 English student and one year 10 English student.

So far, I have helped students analyse and respond to the following texts:
All About Eve
Animal Farm
Behind the Beautiful Forever
Bombshells Burial Rites
How to Kill a Mocking Bird
Into the Wild
Measure for Measure
Of Mice & Men
Life of Galileo
Romeo Juliet
The Island
The Thing Around Your Neck
The Penelopaid

I am based in Brighton, I am willing to drive up to 15km to your residence or a library of your choice.

I am looking for another VCE English or History student.
I currently have Tuesday afternoons free 4pm-6pm, It is $40 per hour. The first hour of the first lesson is free.
