Students learn when they are inspired. Informative English tuition improves comprehension in most subjects. My mission is to treat our English texts with love and respect so that students can find the beautiful gems of information that drive them towards authentic understanding.

My name is Paul, I founded Save My HSC over 6 years ago. I am Masters qualified with a strong love of literature and the arts. In the past students have learned how to weave together essays that have strong contextual and literary analysis under my tutelage. Additionally, English as a Second Language (ESL) students have found me helpful as well due to the grammar, punctuation and comprehension exercises that we have worked on together.

"Save My HSC has been incredibly helpful in distilling the HSC English syllabus. They have covered creative and essay writing as well as assisted me in analysing my prescribed texts. I now have a powerful grasp of the English language and feel confident in my ability to communicate a written message."" - Jacinta

"After working with Save My HSC, I sat my half yearly exams and achieved 87% for my essay where my average has usually been 60%. I can't thank Paul and the team at Save My HSC enough for helping to build my confidence and skills in English. I used to hate this subject, now I LOVE it!!!!"" - Gloria

"Save My HSC has been a wonderful support for my son Konnor during his senior studies. Not only is Paul there to guide him through his assessment tasks, but also offers advice on surviving this stressful time. He is approachable and understanding. My son has gained confidence and looks forward to his weekly sessions. A big thank you to Paul and the team at Save My HSC." - Ruth
