I's just like to thank Jamie for all her hard work with me for my English HSC. I was able to score 88 for Advanced and 46 for Extension 1 English and that would not have been possible without her help.

Thank you Jamie so much for getting my daughter Alex through Advanced, Extension 1 and the biggies Extension 2 English this year. Not only were you insightful in regard to essay structures, textual understanding and appropriate and original related material but you helped sooth and calm her through a very anxious time. Thanks for fitting Adrian in so we can start all over again. I cannot recommend anyone more highly than you - parents if you are going to spend money on a tutor do not waste your cash on university students or inexperienced young teachers - your money will be well spent if you choose a highly experienced teacher with marking experience and depth of knowledge of English literature and film that can guide your child to producing sophisticated and original work.

The only bad thing was trying to get extra lessons because Jamie was always booked out. Without her I would have been achieve any of my respectable English results.

Jamie!! Thanks so much for tutoring me these past 2 years. Despite receiving C's in all my weekly essays from school and being told how inept I am at creative writing I'm proud to say that I received a band 6 in the Eng Adv HSC for 2015. Thanks again for all your help and good luck with your new batch of year 12 students xxx Emma

I just want to thank you Jamie for all your help that has made my trials not only successful, but much less stressful. I started with Jamie in the term 2 holiday Boot Camp and couldn’t believe how easy she made essay writing with her coloured scaffolds, sample essays and practice papers. She is very supportive and encouraging – which is great as my English teacher scares me to death!!! No one had ever showed me the mechanics of essay writing, which is so much easier when you know to construct it. I am also terrified by creative writing and she too the pain out of it. Anyway in my half yaerly’s I got 73 and in my Trials I got 89 – we are so happy to have found her and I’m hoping to get that 93 ATAR I need now! Thank you again.

I would definitely recommend Ms Jamie. She has just helped me to achieve a band 6 of 96 in Advanced English and 48 in Extension 1 After The Bomb in my trial HSC Examination. Her tremendous depth of literary knowledge, skill in language analysis and essay construction as well as Jamie’s endless patience really helped me achieve this result. A truly outstanding tutor, thank you for all your hard work and thanks for booking my sister into my time slot for Term 4!!

I would like to take this opportunity to say many thanks Jamie for helping my daughter to achieve a result of 96.0, band 6 in 2014 HSC Advanced English exam and for assisting my younger son to achieve a Trial Advanced English Result of 92 this term. Jamie is highly experienced in HSC English teaching dedicated and supportive both school assessments and targeting skills for the HSC exams, and helping to demystify the curriculum for both students and parents.

I just wanted to let you know about my HSC (which of course you helped me achieve). In English advanced and ancient history I got a band 6 whilst I got a band 4 in English and History ext resulting in my atar of 96.60. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Jamie for helping me through my studies, particularly in my extension subjects which, without her help, I think I would've been completely lost in. Having someone who I can her. I'm sure your future students will think the same. xoxox

Thank you so much Jamie! It must have been heaven sent that we found her just three weeks out from the 2013 HSC. My son understood his texts, but was clueless how to structure the responses necessary in order answer the questions. Jamie very patiently and quickly calmed his nerves, walked him through scaffolds and helped him structure essays that had the required depth, as well as teaching him how to respond to different questions. We had worked formerly with another tutor, cheaper but in no way experienced or equipped enough to assist Alex in what was required. Jamie is worth every cent and I only wish we had found her a year ago. I cannot recommend her more highly and have my daughter booked in for the senior years!

I needed a tutor for my son Jamie was recommended to me by my friend Rebecca, as she had worked with her son just before the HSC last year and she wished she had found her sooner. My son is gifted in Maths and Sciences, however he struggles comparatively in English and at a selective school there is just no room for error. She started working with him at the end of first term and not only have his marks improved - 91% in the trials up from 79%, he is now ranked 16th and has such confidence. Jamie's fees are high, but I say you get what you pay for and she is worth every dollar. Medicine looks possible now and that is all Simon has ever wanted to do. Thank you Jamie. My daughter will be working with her starting Term 4 for both years 11 and 12. Rodo

After getting 65 in the half yearly’s I started working with Jamie in the last holidays – I just got 19/20 for my Hamlet essay and my rank has jumped into the top twenty – can’t wait to see what I get for trials. She helped me structure my essays and not just list techniques. Thanx from Andrew

I started working with Jamie at her boot-camp sessions before my trials in September last year. She made every effort to fit me, even doing late double sessions to fit around my Chemistry and 4 Unit Maths tutoring and she knew English was my weakest subject. I live in castle Hill and we drove out to Petersham because Jamie knew that I really wanted to get into Medicine. I am now in first year Medicine at UNSW because I got 98 for English after working with her. My mum and I recommend her to everyone we know.

Jamie tutored son for Year 12 last year and is now working with my daughter in year 11, and she is absolutely amazing! I am very impressed by her professionalism and friendliness. She put my kids at ease immediately and has given them so much confidence in English. We have hired cheaper tutors in the past but it was a false economy as they did not engage Sam and Tia, nor make any real progress. With Jamie we were thrilled with the results we saw in a short time, and with happier more confident kids!

I would like to take this opportunity to say many thanks Ms East for helping my daughter to achieve a 96. band 6 in 2011 HSC Advanced English exams. Jamie is very experienced in teaching and tutoring HSC English and dedicated and supportive with both school assessments and prepping for HSC exams. She provides both confidence and support at this stressful time, and nothing is too much trouble. She always prompt in returning emails, texts and calls. Thank you again.

My son Luke was more interested in sport than in studying and was struggling with Advanced English in Year 11. In the second semester Jamie was recommended by a parent at our school. We had tried tutors before, however they were unable to engage him in his studies and he connected with her from the first meeting. His marks steadily improved throughout the 18 months we worked with her and he achieved a 95 in the HSC. Jamie worked with him holidays and was always willing to fit in an extra session in her limited spare time before assessments when necessary. Don't be put off by the cost - you get what you pay for and her experience and positive manner are worth every dollar. Thanks so much for all your work with Luke!!

My son Neil was struggling in Advanced English and losing confidence. With his HSC in 14 weeks I knew we needed address his issues and restore confidence. Jamie has a wonderful warmth and humour and was able to set my son at ease and provide assurance that he could improve his understanding on concepts and texts, as well as his essay writing. We started with her in the June/July holidays, and I only wish we had started sooner. His mark rose from 72 in the half yearlys to 87 in the recent Trial HSC Exams, and we believe that things can only get better. I can’t recommend her service more highly and even though this means I drive him pver from the North Shore one a week for 2hours, it is time and money well spent to have such a positive result and a happier child.

Ms East helped me improve my English marks for the HSC. I worked with her on essays and assessments. We did many practise tasks and she was always willing to talk me through questions on the phone and mark my work on email. She would find me many resource to help improve my work and would try and fit me in for extra lessons before assessments if she could. The only difficulty was finding a time we could both meet as she is busy but it was worth having a Friday evening lesson at 6pm to improve my marks. I now work with her at times on my uni lessons. Thank you :-)

Jamie tutored me for my HSC Adv English course in 2010 and was amazing - we recommended her to two of my friends. She gave me confidence &helped me improve my marks significantly from year 11 into 12 and I got into the uni course I wanted. Jamie knows the texts well, is able to explain them & helped me structure my essays. She is now working with my brother for his HSC. She is friendly, kind and supportive.
