Hi! My name is Peter Hill, student at Macquarie University studying Ancient History with Secondary Education. I have a strong passion for all things history and anthropology, but also have a keen interest in science. I am very flexible in figuring out the best way for students to study and learn their material, allowing for a more self-guided learning and work process. I am also something of a traditional instructor however, so I have no problems with being a guiding force when the occasion requires it for my students. I am very proficient in explaining complex subjects by breaking them down into their simpler components, allowing me to transition the learning of any key information that may have been missed in class smoothly into tutoring. Essay writing skills I also place large emphasis on as this is where students show off their ability to think, thus I would consider it an integral part of preparing students for exams and assessments. Adversity, Challenge and Encouragement are core to my ethos around teaching, as students only grow in strength of knowledge and skill by pushing themselves forward and potentially outside their comfort zone. It is important to encourage students along the way of course, but in a way that excites them to dig deep and be confident in themselves in both schooling and other integral parts of their lives. Confidence has always been a key element in my growth and development of my personal passions like snorkelling and singing, but more importantly, it has helped me grow as a person and throw myself into my own studies. I am excited to help encourage others to do the same.
