Melbourne tutor in EAL, English, English Literature, ESL

I travel to these locations
Eastern suburbs (Doncaster, Camberwell, Kew)

I have extensive qualifications and expertise in English literature and English as a Second Language, many years of tutoring experience.

I was educated at private girls' school in Melbourne, and achieved an ATAR of 99.75. I received a perfect score of 50 for English and Health, and 48 for Literature. I was awarded my school's academic prizes for English, Literature, Australian History, and Health and Human Development.
I studied Arts/Law at the University of Melbourne, and graduated with First Class Honours in English. I completed an additional Honours by Research year, and received a First Class Honours grade for my thesis in English literature. I have also completed the Cambridge Certificate of English Language Teaching to Speakers of Other Languages (CELTA) and received the highest possible grade.

In my legal career I specialised in the education sector, and I have many years experience working as a senior advisor in University management. I always wanted to teach and now that I have two young children of my own, I am enrolling in the 2020 Master of Teaching (Secondary) at the University of Melbourne.

I love teaching and tutoring and I really enjoy helping my students. I tailor my teaching to you, and your specific needs. I am friendly and professional. In our sessions, I will follow what your teacher has set for you, working with you to achieve the best possible marks. I can help to enhance your understanding of texts and your ability to write effectively. My areas of specialisation are English (years 7-12) and English as a Second Language, for primary students, secondary students, and adults.

I am available on weekends, evenings, and Tuesday and Thursday mornings. Tutoring sessions can take place in your home, under your parent/guardian's supervision, or via Skype. Skype works just as well as in-person sessions and it cuts down on travel time, leaving you with more time for study and rest.

I hold a current Working With Children Check. If you have any questions, please contact me on or 0400115515. I offer the first session half-price so that we can get to know each other.



I have five years' experience tutoring VCE English, Literature, History and Philosophy.
I have a further two years' experience tutoring primary school ESL students from Korea and China.
