Sydney tutor in Creative Writing, English
Literature, Essay Writing
I am an HSC English tutor with 4+ years of experience teaching Standard, Advanced, Extension 1 and 2 English. I've improved the marks of over 100 students, including a Standard English student who achieved a band 6 (top ~1% of state cohort), and many others who have improved their internal rankings up to 50 places in less than a year!
I know that effective tutoring is about teaching English in a more structured way. I strive to make English less confusing by showing that there are indeed rules and reasons as to what makes for effective writing. Major topics include:
- How to effectively address the essay question
- Essay structure
- Formulating theses and topic sentences
- Logical argumentation
- Literary and cinematic techniques
- Textual analysis
- Creative writing
My lessons bring structure to these topics, and I work with students to apply these practical writing skills to their assessments. I use teaching resources such as sample essays and can offer comprehensive feedback in person or over email of essay/creative drafts and/or other preparation which reinforce what's done in lessons.
I can tutor at students' homes or a public place such as a local library around the Sutherland Shire and St. George region. If you need more information, please don't hesitate to contact me!
I have been tutoring for over 4 years, tutoring over 100 students.
