*** ONLINE COURSE UPDATED FOR NEW STUDY DESIGN 2016 - 2020! UPDATED FOR 2019 AND BEYOND! ***
Ever wished you could have a private tutor for English Language WITHOUT the hefty price tag? Well, today you can!
My name is Dmitri and I am a current VCE English Language student. Having finished in 2012 and having attained a score of 45 in the subject, I believe that passing this valuable knowledge and experience onto current students is the least I can do. I also thoroughly understand how hard it is to find English Language resources (I know I would've loved something like this in Year 12!). As a current tutor of English Language for over 25 students on a full time basis, I have listened and understood the challenges of the everyday VCE English Language student.
Here's a few reasons why you should take this course:
You find the textbook dry and boring (many students do!)
You want an interactive way to learn the course
You want to learn how to properly structure your essays and analytical commentaries
You struggle to even start an essay, let alone complete it
You struggle to come up with quotes for your essays
You are struggling to grasp certain terms and concepts in the course
You simply just want to get ahead in English Language and do the best you possibly can!
This course is entirely comprehensive, meaning that you could be struggling at English Language OR are a pro and just need that extra bit of polishing! I have made this course so that is caters to all levels!
Part of my offering is a complete metalanguage list for all of the subsystems AND a complete quotations list for all topics in the course. I also provide you with tons of COMPLETE sample essays covering a wide range of topics, as well as analytical commentaries. Talk about value!
This is the type of course that you can decide to view in a day, OR view certain lectures as necessary, or if you have difficulties in certain areas of the course. Having troubles with structuring essays? No worries, just view the 'essay structure' lecture and download the lecture notes. I also go through an essay and 'dissect' all the important parts of an essay. Though generally speaking, I recommend you go through the entire course at least once to get your money's worth.
I conduct this course through interactive PowerPoint videos, and faced video presentations, so I actually TALK to you on screen and explain the concepts and ideas in an engaging and inviting manner.
The course is structured according to the area of studies for each unit, with sections added for essays, analytical commentaries and quotations. I also provide you with a wide range of practice questions and also example responses from A+ essays and analytical commentaries.
PLUS! Once inside, you get the opportunity to talk with fellow English Language students. You can even post questions to the forums inside the course where I will do my utmost best to answer whenever I can!
Note: I have updated the course for the new study design (2016 - 2020). There have only been a few minor changes made to the current study design and these are all addressed in the online course.
I charge $60 per hour for private tuition to my current students, so you are definitely getting a bargain! See all of my satisfied student reviews at the bottom of this page!
Any questions, just ask! Until then, I'll see you on the inside.
- Year 12 VCE English Language students
- Those who are struggling with key terms
- Those who are struggling with structuring your response
All my tips for succeeding in English Language! This video is a MUST! Also be sure to see the tips attached to this lecture in document format.
In this lecture, I go through all of the metalinguistic terms needed for semantics with definitions and examples! Be sure to download the lecture resources too!
In this lecture I look at the type of registers a text may use, and how to describe the register of a text in an analytical commentary!
What exactly are conversational strategies? We use them more often than you may think. Conversational strategies are literally strategies that aid us in our conversational with another person. This lecture includes explanations on adjacency pairs, topic management and minimal responses.
Now that you've got the structure, introduction and paragraphs in place, we can now look at different and useful topic sentences for each paragraph. Be sure to download this document.
In this lecture, I show you what an analytical commentary actually looks like, and how to structure it too. I highly recommend you download these notes and see how the structure works. The analysed piece (a website article), from which this commentary was written, is attached to the lecture notes!
In this document are many practice analytical commentary pieces, from which you can write your analysis. The types of text range from a spoken transcript to social commentaries and newspaper articles. I highly recommend you download and print these out, and highlight the important features of each text. Then, after you complete the annotations, write your complete analytical commentary using the provided structure.
Sometimes teachers may ask you to write a comparative analytical commentary - what this means is you'll compare two texts in terms of register, social purposes, audience and so forth. Here is an example text you can use. I'd also highly recommend familiarising yourself about the context of North and South Korea (if you don't already know!).
You can find the answer for the South Korean text attached to this lecture as an additional resource.
In this document, I provide you with a vast array of A+ essays, and the relevant essay topics for each. I highly recommend you read over each essay within this document. You can also find other sample A+ essays under the respective AOS sections above. Please also see attached files for more essays.
This document contains what I believe is the most complete list of quotations for all of the major topics for Units 3/4. Feel free to use them in your essays and other responses. Also, ensure you update the list regularly with your own example quotations by observing the media and other real-life examples. Please see additional resources for the COMPLETE UNIT 4 quotes list & Unit 3 quotes list.
I regularly contribute articles to VCEStudyGuides.com and in 2015 I wrote many articles, which I have compiled here into one single file. Please take the time to go through these articles and highlight any key ideas and quotes. Many of these articles and ideas discussed are still very relevant for 2019.
