for confidence, enthusiasm, skill, and understanding
Sydney tutor in Creative Writing, English
Literature, Essay Writing
I am an enthusiastic, highly qualified, and experienced teacher and tutor, committed to developing in each student the confidence, enthusiasm, skill, and understanding to do their very best.
I specialise in working with secondary school students from year nine through to the HSC, focusing on guiding each student to connect with the syllabus through their own prior knowledge and perspectives.
As part of my service, I provide clear and concise study guides for most prescribed texts, and also for a wide range of related texts.
I also work with university students who need to improve or refine their essay-writing skills, and offer proofreading services.
As a teacher for a decade, and private tutor for several years, I have worked with children from a wide variety of backgrounds and achievement levels, and enjoyed great success with even reluctant learners.
I am widely experienced in Stages 5 and 6 English, specialising in the Preliminary and
HSC courses, as well as in essay-writing across all subject areas.
Bachelor of Arts, majoring in English (Distinction grades) and Economic History (Distinction grades)
Graduate Diploma in Education
Subjects towards Post-Graduate Diploma in Education for International Baccalaureate (Distinction grades)
I generally see students at my home but if this is not convenient I am happy to use Skype. I will also travel up to 15 minutes for home visits at a cost of $10. I am happy to consider people's economic circumstances if requested.
I expect commitment to a full academic year, which is 10 sessions per school term, irrespective of the variations in schedule experienced in senior secondary school. Payment is either in advance per term, or week by week.
In the event of cancellation by the client, I will try to provide a catch-up session, but payment must be made either way.
