Sydney Tutor in Creative Writing, English
Literature, Essay Writing
English Extension 2 specialist.
I was a litigation lawyer, and gave it up to pursue my true passions: literature and writing. I approach my students with the professionalism of a lawyer, and the creativity of a writer, and believe that success in HSC English is a combination of these two qualities. In addition to my strong communication skills, I have more 2000 hours of face to face high school tutoring experience.
In the 2015/16 I worked for a large tutoring company and tutored more than 85 students in English (years 7-12). All of my year 12 students (private and classes) either maintained or improved their internals ranks. Some students improved their ranks by more than 40 places. To see some student reviews you can check the Ion Education Kogarah Facebook page, click on posts and view the visitor posts (the website will be up soon).
In 2016/17 I specialised exclusively in HSC English, and taught more than 40 HSC English students.
I have tutored students from all over Sydney including, but not limited to, Bethany College, Blackwattle Secondary, Burwood Girls, Caringbah High School, Danebank, Fort Street, Hurlstone Agricultural, International Grammar School, James Ruse, North Sydney Boys, North Sydney Girls, Penrith High, Sydney Girls, Sydney Boys, St George Christian School, St George Girls, Strathfield Girls, Tempe High.
I hold a Bachelor of Arts (English and Art History) with First Class Honours (USYD), and also holds a Juris Doctor (USYD). I am also currently working on a book of short stories about my time in the corporate world, and am looking towards publication.

My rates are $100.00 per hour for English Extension 2 mentoring, and $90 p/hr for Advanced and Standard.
However, for students who sign up and pay for a term before 9 September 2017, I will reduce my Extension 2 rates to $90 per hour.
For students who sign up for, and pay for a term of Extension 2 AND Advanced, I will reduce my rates to $80 per subject. That provides a saving of $40 per week, $400 per term and $1,600 a year (a term runs for 10 weeks, though I can be flexible here with private students).
I do not offer free trial lessons, but will refund the full amount of any remaining classes should you be unhappy with my services.
