Dr Terry Volbrecht, PhD


A am available to tutor high school (VCE) English, English as an Additional Language and Literature. I can also assist tertiary students in English and other humanities subjects at all levels with their writing assignments.

I have extensive experience of tutoring in secondary and tertiary education.

I taught English as a first language in high schools for seventeen years and English as a second language for eight years. In this period I combined class teaching with individualised tuition and also tutored first year university students studying English via Distance Education.

I then worked in universities as an educational development professional. In this period I tutored students in English and academic literacy and was also involved in writing educational publications including English text books for high schools. Also in this period I trained peer tutors based in Writing Centres. As an academic I successfully supervised and tutored many postgraduate students.

AS a tutor my aim is to be approachable, encouraging, patient and constructive.


My schedule is currently flexible. Not available 8.3- - 9.30 in the mornings and 3 to 4.30 in the afternoons.

Terry's Mini CV

  • Qualifications
  • Strengths as a Tutor
  • Teaching Method

Highest Qualification: PhD (Specialised Qualification)

I have post-graduate qualifications in English including a PhD (D.Litt) which was about academic literacy development.

I am highly qualified as a teacher of English, having completed Honours, Master's (cum laude) and doctoral degrees in the field of English/Education, as well as haviing completed a postgraduate teachers' diploma (cum laude).
I have specialised in the field of student essay writing and have advanced skills which I use when working with students.
I am friendly, patient and encouraging in my approach, and will go out of my way to understand what each students needs to improve and what the student and I need to know to make this happen.
I encourage all students to become reflective, independent learners.

My method is based on first understanding what a particular student needs from me and then designing my support and each lesson to meet these needs.
My method is also task-based, in that I primarily work with tasks that students have already been given by their teachers or lecturers. I may if necessary give additional tasks designed to improve the student's performance in their primary tasks.
