(4 student reviews)
Registered, highly experienced English tutor for all Brisbane primary and secondary students. I am also highly qualified and experienced in all IELTS, TOEFL, ESL, OET, PTE, QCS and NAPLAN tutoring. I also tutor in speaking skills for all purposes and tests. All necessary tutoring materials are supplied free of charge.
I run English Language Services 6 days a week, from my office in Milton, which is very close to trains, buses and ferries.
I am a professional English tutor, a registered specialist English teacher, assessor and tutor and I own English Language Services, a tuition, editing and writing business.
For more than twenty-five years, I worked as an English Head of Dept., ESL Coordinator, Literacy Coordinator and Uni tutor as well as with the Queensland Studies Authority on QCS writing materials and tests. I currently teach aspects of English at UQ and tutor English from my office in Milton, Brisbane. I mentor across a wide range of tertiary subject areas including Business, Nursing, Social Sciences, Education and TESOL. I help with Junior and Senior English assignments, professional and business English as well as with university assignments and theses for university degrees and TAFE diplomas.
English Language Services focuses on repairing and strengthening each student's English and on developing all students' English skills to the highest possible level.
I can provide a course to fit all school and university students' writing needs after diagnosing their grammar problems and help upgrade their written English skills to the high standard of formal English required for great school and university results. Students Years 4-9 may choose to join a small group (2-3) coaching session (cheaper) or enjoy the more usual 1-1 tuition. Students in Years 10 onward need individualised tuition to deal with their more complex language and assignment problems.
I also tutor IELTS, OET, PTE, TOEFL and ESL [elementary to advanced] students on an individual basis and teach English for academic and professional purposes. My clients are ambitious students, business people and professionals who are determined to be successful achievers. I also help with speaking.
For all students wanting to raise their marks, I offer holiday extension short courses in advanced grammar, reading comprehension, essay writing and advanced vocabulary skills. My intensive 5 day short courses (3 hours per day) are run during school holidays and they boost students' grammar, reading, vocabulary and writing skills. I also run a five day (3 hours per day) short course for QCS training, providing practice with past papers and models of written responses. I provide all textbooks and computer resources.
I am a former Head of English and a university tutor, with twenty-five years'
experience teaching English at secondary school and university levels. I have tutored
individual students, many of an ESL background, for the past 8 years.
I currently tutor Junior and Senior students from private and state colleges as well as a
number of adults preparing for their IELTS, TOEFL, PTE and OET tests. I tutor IELTS from Level 4 to Levels 7 & 8, particularly in writing. I have also tutored university students in a number of faculties
and edit theses and assignments as well as offer mentoring services. In addition to my
professional tutoring, I am also a professional editor and member of the Society of
I have a BA (U.Q.) and my education diplomas and certificates such as my postgraduate Dip. TESOL, are mainly from Q.U.T. I have been accepted into a PhD program (Philosophy) at U.Q. and I am currently registered with the Qld College of Teachers and so hold a Blue Card.

individual course for each student after his/her assessment, selection of exercise books
suitable for each student and help with English language and assignments. Small group
