Come join me! Start enjoying English and get the results you deserve!

I take the uncertainty out of English study, with my 15 years of tutoring experience and provision of only the highest quality support.

All my students achieve Band 6 results, or at least a 20% improvement from pre-tutoring marks. I also hope to provide students with an appreciation of literature benefitting their whole lives; understanding that they have bright futures ahead of them and their sense of self-worth is based on their intrinsic value as human beings, not merely marks or their satisfaction of other people's expectations.

- We learn how to study SMARTER and start succeeding in English study!

- Improved English, writing and speaking skills improve performance across all writing-based subjects, for which I also provide editing and extensive practical feedback with explanations.

- I give my students TOOLS to help them master the often abstract English syllabus and STRATEGIES to sharpen their writing.

- Students become exam-ready, with TECHNIQUES and RESOURCES to enhance memory, reduce stress and organise arguments.

I know how to navigate the system of assessments and cater answers to our primary audience of teachers and HSC markers.

My broad study in the humanities and professional background in writing and communications give me exemplary control of the English language.

Most of my students belong to selective, CAS or GPS schools but I firmly believe tutoring should be accessible to everyone.

I have a current Working with Children Check and follow NSW law, the policies of ICAC and the Board of Studies.

Rates

$95/hr if paid for the term (or 10 lessons) in advance.

My offering is weekly online-based individual tutoring.
If needed, with a monthly in-person lesson.

Tutoring is mostly on Saturdays, from 9am - 6pm.
A 2-hr lesson with a 5-minute break is recommended, though individual needs can be supported. Some students have a 1-hr lesson.

This is really the best option if you want significant improvement in writing, especially if across multiple subjects.

"Jordan is the most knowledgeable and responsible tutor I have met. I became ranked 1st in my English course after my marks moved from ‘sound’ to achieving ‘outstanding’ consistently in every English assessment. He considers student interests and different learning styles to prepare effective and unique lessons to meet individual academic needs. He also offers extremely helpful exam techniques for memorising essays, adapting to different questions, how to make writing concise but strong and much more. Unlike other English tutors, Jordan’s deep understanding of art, history and philosophy provides him with the capacity to associate English writing within the complex contexts that will provide more practical understanding and more powerful and sophisticated writing. Furthermore, he is also very holistic, always caring about student mental health and will support students to overcome their hardships to the best of his ability. He will also provide extra help outside of the class time with answering questions, editing practice essays, proof reading and marking with intensive feedback on writing across multiple subjects. Overall, Jordan has all the skills and qualities you will expect for an outstanding tutor as well as the understanding of all possible texts you might encounter in all English courses. I highly recommend Jordan for those seeking an English tutor if you want significant improvement in your marks and enjoyment of English study."
