Dr Jennifer Minter

 Melbourne - Blackburn

Melbourne tutor in English, Essay Writing

Subjects: All levels: English, EAL, English Language/Literature, essay-writing and scholarship classes. Writing - clear sentences and well-structured essays - is the key to success. This is the focus of my small-group lessons, which, using a series of workbooks (see that match the Australian curriculum, progressively show students how to improve their reasoning, persuasive and written skills.

By simply purchasing a workbook at students can take advantage of my extensive (free) online support for each exercise. This support models sophisticated analytical terminology and shows you how to extend your skills and what words to use. (See (Best contact: The workbooks are also perfect for independent and self-directed learners.

For VCE students: the changes to the curriculum, particularly in Area Study 2: Analysing Arguments, enables you to shine. You can attend my small groups (4-6 students) and work through our recently published workbook, Arguments and Persuasive Language, which shows you how to achieve high-scoring responses. To get started, please purchase the workbook at and do yourself a favour. Spend just 15 minutes a day, working through our short articles/exercises and my "suggested responses" which are the best in the field, and you will be guaranteed superior results. (See Arguments and Persuasive Language)

VCE Preparation : Work through "Become an Expert: The Language of Persuasion" and our Better Essays and Persuasive Techniques in order to gain an excellent grounding for VCE. Small group lessons ($35 per student/5-6 in the class).

The workbooks are perfect for students who wish to improve their English and the quality of their written expression, but are not sure how to do so. They are also perfect for students in remote(r) locations.

For those who wish to excel in scholarships and Naplan: see our "Better Essays and Persuasive Techniques" and join some essay-writing workshops. (
