"Ms East helped me improve my English marks for the HSC. I worked with her on essays and assessments. We did many practise tasks and she was always willing to talk me through questions on the phone and mark my work on email. She would find me many resource to help improve my work and would try and fit me in for extra lessons before assessments if she could. The only difficulty was finding a time we could both meet as she is busy but it was worth having a Friday evening lesson at 6pm to improve my marks. I now work with her at times on my uni lessons. Thank you :-)"
