Hi, I'm Tina! As a tutor, I can help by explaining any content that may be a bit confusing, working through questions with you, and providing any other support you may need to gain a better understanding of the topics. I really enjoy tutoring students and try to make learning as fun as possible - and I really enjoy seeing students have that "Ohhh I get it now!" moment. Check out the references at the bottom of the page! :)

LING111:
My overall grade for LING111 was a High Distinction. I received 100% for the phonemic transcription assignment, and 90-95% for the other assignments. I completely understand that the content in this unit can be a bit daunting at first (I have been there myself!) but I can assure you that you'll enjoy it once you get the hang of it!

LING217 & LING220:
I achieved High Distinctions for both LING217 and LING220. I received 97% for the transcription assignment and 95-100% for the syntax assignments and quizzes. I can help you to understand the patterns and rules that form the basis of these units. Linguistics can be tricky, but the key to doing well is PRACTICE!

Here is a transcription tip to get you started:
Remember, each syllable has one nucleus (vowel sound). So if you count the number of syllables in a word, that's how many vowel sounds there are as well. Hope this helps with those tricky words such as 'spontaneity'.
5 syllables = 5 vowel sounds in your transcription

COGS101:
My overall grade for COGS101 was a High Distinction (97), and I received a Department of Cognitive Science award for my performance in this unit. I received 96% for the research report and 99% for the final exam (50/50 for multiple choice and 19.5/20 for essay questions). I really enjoyed this unit and would be happy to help you with it!

My notes for COGS101 can also be purchased on StudentVIP.

Feel free to ask me any questions - I am always happy to help! :)

Tina has tutored me this semester for LING220 and LING217. She has been so helpful and always made time to see me in a relaxed and calm environment. I never felt rushed and I felt completely comfortable to ask any question (even if I thought it was “silly”). I would highly recommend Tina, she is extremely knowledgeable and knows her content very well. I will continue to use Tina for tutoring :)

Tina tutored me in both subjects. Not only is she so patient, but she explains the content so well which allowed me to understand the course content much easier. I highly recommend Tina if you are needing assistance in these subjects!

Tina tutored me for LING217 and LING220. She was happy to go over any concepts I was struggling with and was very clear with her explanations. Because of her help, I was able to understand what I was doing wrong and also have more confidence in completing the final exams for both units. I would definitely recommend Tina for anyone who is thinking about getting a tutor!

Tina has tutored me for one of the linguistics units. Honestly, i was not doing well, had trouble understanding the concepts until i met Tina. We only had 1.5hr lesson, and let me tell you; she helped majorly! I will definitely recommend her and will again get tutored by her in the future.

I had Tina tutor me for LING220. She was really good at helping me to get the concepts I knew in my head onto paper, and helping me to refine them.

I would recommend her to anyone who is really struggling with syntax, and needs help with the refinement of the major concepts.

Tina is currently tutoring me for both LING217 & LING220. She is genuinely the best tutor I've ever had and explains concepts/topics of the subjects so easily. She is so patient and is happy to help you no matter how long it takes! I've never really felt confident about LING subjects but after meeting with Tina I always leave feeling confident about my studies. I highly recommend Tina if you're having any troubles!

Tina is an amazing tutor. I had problems understanding all parts of LING 111, especially syntax and had failed the course once before meeting Tina.
This time I am receiving high distinctions and I owe it to Tina's assistance. She is better at explaining the concepts than other tutors from university. For me it is definitely worth it to have Tina as a tutor.

Tina has been tutoring me for nearly 2 years now and I would not have it any other way! She is the best tutor I have ever had. She tutored me for Ling217 and I always looked forward to our lessons every week! That is how amazing she is. If you are struggling with any of the units she tutors she will teach you amazingly!

Tina tutored me for LING217 and she was super helpful! She explained everything in a way I could understand and I don't think I would be able to do my exam without her help. I would highly recommend her if you are struggling with any part of the unit.

Tina is one amazing person. coming from no background of linguistic she helped me so much and went beyond what she needed to do. in the beginning of starting the unit of LING111 i was quite hesitant and regretting it but as tina helped me to better understand it, i thoroughly enjoyed it and found it interesting. she is quite a joyful person to study with aswell.
