Need help with unseen English exams?
Gold Coast tutor in Creative Writing, English, English Literature, ESL, Essay Writing, French
As a highly experienced teacher, I can help students to prepare a generic essay about a major theme for unseen English exams. Then, they can hopefully learn it and adjust it on the day to match their unseen topic. Check out my list of novels, plays and films below or enquire about a different one. I have a passion for helping students to understand and successfully complete their work and drafts to improve their results. I am a specialist in English, ESL, essay writing, narratives, literature analysis and editing essays of various subjects, including Art and Business. I can provide Australian or other poems, help with their analysis and do NAPLAN practice. For convenience, I can receive essays via email and send them back edited, charging for the time taken if travel to my home is a problem. I can provide useful handouts regarding essay writing techniques, effective word use and the analysis of many different novels, plays, poems and films: Swallow the Air, Fahrenheit 451, 1984, Frankenstein, The Drover's Wife, Chinese Cinderella, Bowling for Columbine documentary, Wonder, Brave New World, The Book Thief, We were Liars, King Lear, Romeo and Juliet, Macbeth, Hamlet, The Taming of the Shrew, Othello, The Happiest Refugee, The Secret River, Hell Screen, Holes, Parvana, Boy in the Striped Pyjamas, Night, The Messenger, The Catcher in the Rye, The Other Hand, Unpolished Gem, Of Mice and Men, The Kite Runner, The Great Gatsby novel and film, All Quiet on the Western Front film, The Hunger Games novel and film, Animal Farm, Tomorrow When the War Began, To Kill a Mockingbird, The Shawshank Redemption film, Black Swan film, Broken film, Forrest Gump film, Flowers for Algernon, Z for Zachariah, Raw, Snow Falling on Cedars, Jasper Jones, Boy Overboard, Once, The Dons, The Green Mile, The Crucible, Across the Barricades, A Bridge to Wiseman's Cove, The Wave, Looking for Alibrandi, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Touch Me, Lockie Leonard, The Burnt Stick, Muriel's Wedding film, Follow the Rabbit-Proof Fence, Rabbit-Proof Fence film, Yolngu Boy film, Red Dog film, The Shifting Heart, Ned Kelly, Wuthering Heights, A Tale of Two Cities, The Sapphires film, Bram Stoker's Dracula film, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe film, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, Shake & Stir's production of Dracula and others. I can also help students with Distance Education assessment. I am available to develop holiday programs for primary and secondary students to help them with specific issues or I can develop extension programmes to encourage students to build on their existing knowledge.
