Ben Grech – English Tutor

I’ve been working as a high school teacher for several years and have been tutoring since my undergrad. I’m also a published author and have undertaken several mentorships with award winning authors. I completed my masters in multiliteracies and student funded education. Both of these fields of education specialise in understanding the “life world” (the term given to mean the experiences and interests) of the student and then building off that to guide learning in real world, or simulated real world, creative outputs. I’m a teacher and I love teaching, but I did not enjoy school. What motivates me is helping students discover their own passion for reading on their own grounds. Multiliteracies suggests that students are inspired by and influenced by a multiple of sources and so their learning and their outcomes must be as diverse and as varied as these interests. I’m passionate about these teaching styles and believe I would be a strong asset to a home teaching environment, whether the students is trying to get VCE ready, or just trying to learn more about looking closely at novels or develop their creative writing. I’m available to take on students weekly, or for short term projects over the holidays.
