Experience

I am a qualified (BA Hons, PhD; University of Sydney) English tutor with several years of experience assisting HSC English students and University students (undergrad and postgrad) in essay writing, creative writing, and major works’ preparation.

HIGH SCHOOL:
I help students with exam and assignment preparation by annotating their work with suggestions for improvements. Areas include: thesis development; essay / assignment structure; textual analysis; spelling, punctuation, and grammar; and general research skills.

Exams place tremendous stress on students. Sadly, most classrooms are ill-equipped to help students lacking in experience, skill, and passion. I have a personal fondness for teaching students how to perfect their writing to ensure confidence, support, and happiness and well-being during exam periods.

POSTGRADUATE:
I assist postgraduate candidates (Master's degrees / PhDs) with their writing. Candidates who struggle to produce clear and coherent sentences, or for whom English is a second language, will work closely with me to improve their written work(s). I also teach general research skills.

AVAILABILITY:
I am available every day.

I do not travel. My lessons are online (Skype or via e-mail). This is for both peace of mind and to save students (and parents) valuable travel time. If you have any questions then please do not hesitate to contact me.

"John has been my tutor for the last 2 years, and has helped me refine my essays and creative writing for both for preliminary and HSC assessments. He is a very knowledgeable, hardworking, and dedicated tutor who understands the syllabus requirements. I have enjoyed my lessons with him, and have noticed a big improvement in my own writing skills. His fee includes the time he takes to read my essay before each lesson and to prepare excellent notes on how to improve it. I would 100% recommend him."
