Sydney Boys High School ENGLISH Tutor

Sydney tutor in Creative Writing, English

Both my Year 12 students in 2023 were able to improve from predicted mid-Band 4s in Advanced English to achieving high-Band 5s!

All 3 of my Year 12 students achieved Band 6s in English Advanced and another student who also took on English Extension 1 achieved an E4 in 2022!

Sydney Boys High School Class of 2021:
HSC English Advanced (29th/213, 2021); Preliminary English Advanced (4th/216, 2020)
HSC English Extension 1 (1st/40, 2021); Preliminary English Extension 1 (1st/216, 2020)

Through my experience with English in high school, as well as university, I understand the relevant skills and most effective techniques required to secure an A-range response. I will tailor my lessons to improve student weaknesses in subject areas and aim to prepare them weeks before their exam block to ensure they perform their best. I am reachable outside of the agreed lesson hours if there are queries of any sort. My focus is generalised on improving the student's writing ability in opposition to memory work. I aim to model sentences and encourage critical thinking skills - an asset to your child's development as an individual.

The lesson rate is defaulted to Zoom, however, I am happy to hold our lessons in-person at a convenient location for the both of us at an additional cost.

Experience

I have tutored senior high school students English for four years.

Students that I have taught from the beginning of the calendar year of their HSC have achieved the highest band results in their English subjects. I have been able to lift results substantially in the second-half of the year as well.
