If you'd rather chew off your right hand than read a novel, chances are that English is not your favourite subject. Sometimes we simply need a change, a kind of circuit-breaker,
in the way we experience a subject that leaves us confused, frustrated and demotivated. That is what I offer. The Better Essays program provides FOUR, intensive one-on-one sessions for students of English. The focus of the program is to help
quantify a subject that can often feel vague and difficult to study, and to provide students
with strategies for writing essays under exam conditions.
Better Essays is designed to be a practical approach to understanding the expectations of the English course, essay-writing, literary analysis, and exam preparation. For adults, this program also provides the structure and strategies you will need to be prepared for the Written Communication component of the GAMSAT or STAT tests.

The Better Essays program was developed by Dr Andrea Monteath, and has been working to help high school students and adults navigate the challenges of essay writing and English analysis since its launch in 2011. A private initiative, all students who
participate in the Better Essays program receive personal, one-on-one tuition with Dr Monteath. For more information on Dr Monteath's projects please visit


Andrea holds a PhD in Writing, and a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) with a major
in Writing and a minor in Philosophy and Religion. An accredited specialist in all
aspects of writing, she re-developed and taught the third-year Literature
unit, The Literature of Adolescence, at Edith Cowan University. She is the author of
'Something to Prove: philosophy, community of inquiry and creative thinking', and is the
director of The Life Writing Project, a leisure course in autobiographical writing and
book production. For more information on Dr Monteath's projects please visit

Please note that the Better Essays program is available as a package of FOUR,
one-hour sessions only. Ultimately, students must compose and deliver their essays
without help. I believe that a few short, but personal, tuition sessions can build the
confidence that students need to achieve independence in their essay-writing.

Better Essays sessions can be conducted at my home office in Sorrento, or I will
drive to your home within a fifteen-minute radius of the Sorrento area. For more
