I am a qualified (BA Hons, PhD; University of Sydney) English tutor with several years of experience assisting HSC English students and University students in essay writing, creative writing, textual analysis, major works' preparation, exam preparation, and public speaking. Although my primary area of expertise is English and literary studies, I can assist all students with any forms of essay and research writing for almost all subjects.

I have successfully mentored many students over the past few years in both secondary and tertiary subjects (including, but not limited to, English, History, and Biology; specifically, any subject which has an essay component). My passion is helping students develop and perfect their writing skills, so that they can produce concise, intelligent, high-quality essays for their examiners and for any other forms of assessment.
I believe that practice and experience are the best foundations for success. For this reason, my lessons are structured to assist students in gaining expertise and confidence in essay writing. For secondary students, this involves them creating a draft essay prior to our meeting on a topic relevant to their scholastic routine, which will then form the focus of our lesson: critiquing, reviewing, and improving the essay over the course of an hour. For tertiary students, the focus is primarily on refining their essay style for assignments, helping them improve their research skills, and development and refinement of an argument or thesis.
For NSW HSC students, I am able to help with assignments (either take-home or in-class essays), as well as assist with essay preparation and writing for both HSC trials and HSC exams.
My own scholarly interests are early-twentieth-century British literary theory, particularly pertaining to poetry and the novel, especially the writings of A.E. Housman, I.A. Richards, and F.R. Leavis, as well as hermeneutics and traditional literary theory, including New Criticism, Reader-Response Criticism, Intentionalism, and Phenomenological Literary Analysis. I also have an interest in historiography and ethnography.
I am available every day except Sunday. Lessons take place within my home.
