DR BILL Is AVAILABLE AGAIN AFTER A LONG BREAK FORCED BY COVID👨‍🎓🎉I am a retired university lecturer (please note that I only teach at university level and have no experience in teaching for the HSC). I held full time, tenured teaching positions at Australian and British Universities for 15 years. I taught Film Studies, English Literature, Philosophy and Art History. I love teaching and can help with essay writing and study skills in any discipline of the Humanities. (please make the initial contact using the email link).

At a time when impersonal online lectures are becoming the norm, face to face university tutorials are a rarity, and the humanities have been massively defunded, I can help you experience university in the way it should be experienced.


I only teach at university level, not high school.

I will not do anything that can be construed as cheating. For example, I can help you understand your readings and question, proofread your essay, make critical comments (basically mark the essay as it stands), and talk through your arguments and presentation online or in person. I will NOT 'rewrite' your essay for you. I can definitely help you learn and improve your marks, but I will never assist anyone in cheating.

"After one two hour tute with Bill I have a better understanding of the concepts that I have struggled with all semester. He really know his stuff especially when it comes to philosophy. I can not recommend Bill enough to any student who is struggling with the concepts, ideas and questions associated with university study. I will be using him again"
