As a HSC and High School English tutor and a top English performer in the HSC, I know how stressful the HSC year can be, especially with everyone telling you how important it is.

I came fourth in the State of NSW in HSC Studies of religion, and received distinctions across all HSC English levels, including Advanced, Extension 1 and Extension 2 English.
Most importantly, I want to make this year easier on you, and not to add to your pressures.

With me, you learn to prepare SMARTER: you will sharpen your essay writing skills, keeping key points in mind, writing with clarity and descriptiveness, and presenting varied, well researched arguments.

As a practicing Journalist, with a degree in Media and Communications from Sydney University I'm able to make your study of English and Religion effective AND efficient.

Key texts in your study of "Discovery" as well as a breakdown of the intricacies of the major religious traditions, will be a major component of our study.

My success in HSC Extension History means that I'm prepared to help you prepare through a study of historical traditions with key points to enrich your understanding.

I also students with their Selective Schools test preparations, and am equipped with comprehension and English writing resources and stimuli.

Come join me, lets study smarter and exceed your expectations!



Have shared my own essays as well as study notes which highlight important concepts
in each religious tradition, to students studying HSC Studies of Religion.

Have helped friends hone their English essay skills, helping them to write with clarity
and poignancy, rather than vagueness and ambiguity. Have helped to divide essays into
key paragraphs which are concise and effective, drawing to a well supported conclusion.

colleges and countless students through one-on-one tuition.

"I came to Daniel about a month before the HSC exams started to help me with my English essay writing skills. Despite the small amount of time we had, Daniel gave me a tremendous amount of help and made me feel far more confident walking into both of my English exams. He was readily available, making time for me whenever I felt I needed a few extra hours and we were able to cover a lot in each lesson. Not only did Daniel help with my essay writing skills, he also broke down the rubrics for each topic I was doing in order to better understand what the Board of Studies were looking for in a response. By doing this, I was also able to predict the sort of questions I would be asked and in turn, I could construct a plan for each essay I was going to write. Doing this allowed me to manage my time better whilst in the exam and helped to alleviate some of the pressure that comes with attempting to plan multiple responses in 5 minutes of reading time. Daniel helped me with each of these plans, suggesting ideas and helping me to find evidence to support my argument. As well as this, we looked at past responses and picked out strengths that I could work into my own essays and weaknesses that I should consciously avoid. Whilst with Daniel, I wrote a number of essays both under timed conditions and in my own time, Daniel would then mark each of these, highlighting good ideas and arguments and pin pointing what I needed to do better. Having done all this preparation and practice, I felt ready and able to do my HSC English exams and am incredibly happy with both my HSC results and my ATAR. Thanks to Daniel, I was able to maintain and improve upon my English marks and relieve some of the stresses of the hectic HSC exam period. He was able to keep me on top of my English studies, enabling me to focus on my other subjects without stressing about my lack of time. But most importantly, each lesson with Daniel was enjoyable and fun, which certainly helped me in making sure that I got my work done. I would highly recommend Daniel and his service to any HSC student who feels that they would benefit from a little help in English or Religion, his effective approach will ensure that you are feeling confident and relaxed about your exams. Good Luck!"
