Dr Kristyn Saunders Melbourne Tutor in Creative Writing, English, English Literature, Essay Writing

(15 student reviews) (15 reviews)


The weekly one-on-one tutoring I provide helps students to read and understand the various literary and other texts used in VCE YEAR 12 ENGLISH and LITERATURE and to find their own voice in the analytic, persuasive, literary and creative writing required of these subjects.

My approach to year 12 English studies aims to build on each student's academic and personal strengths, increasing confidence as well as skill over the course of the year.

The organisation of lessons is based directly on each student's specific needs, following the VCE class curriculum, SAC due dates, practice, official trial and final exams.

My graduate study in the humanities was completed at Harvard and Columbia Universities. I have a PhD in English Literature and broad experience teaching writing and literature to students of all ages and levels of expertise, in both Australia and the US.

I presently tutor students in VCE ENGLISH AND VCE LITERATURE from various Melbourne and regional schools, and via Distance Education, both in person and on Skype. I cover all the single analytic texts and comparative text pairs, in VCE English, and the full range of VCE Literature texts, for the two exam areas.

Please inquire about 2018 TUITION sessions. There are presently a few places remaining for 3/4 English students, both in-person (at a library location) and via Skype; and I am taking a wait list for 3/4 Literature places, which are presently full. Please note, I am available to meet with prospective students/parents prior to the beginning of the new school year.

All inquiries welcome and all emails answered promptly.
