Please see testimonials on my website (link below):

I am a native speaker of the English language, born and educated in Australia, and I do my utmost to ensure that my students receive the best tuition in the subjects that I love - writing and English in general.

My students have gone on to be placed in various selective high schools, be awarded scholarships at private schools, achieve prizes in competitions and outstanding marks for essays at schools and universities.

My online tutorials are individually tailored to meet specific needs of any student regardless of age, level or location. Unlike large, expensive coaching colleges, my services are very affordable, personally tailored and flexible in relation to days/times/terms/frequency and also in relation to how structured courses or tutorials can be. Please see below for some of the structured courses that I offer. You will not find these courses anywhere else.

Students/clients need not have 'face-to-face' contact with me online. In fact, I don't necessarily rely on this because English, especially writing, requires students to actually sit down and write! There is no point in chatting and receiving pages and pages of notes and suggestions if you are not writing anything! I have many online students who do not have actual 'face-time' with me, so they are free to complete their work at any time that suits them, and they are progressing very well.

I also offer an online Editing service and have a number of tertiary students from non-English speaking backgrounds who need editing assistance. I am available for copy-editing major high school creative writing projects or particular essays for grammar, punctuation, spelling etc.

My aims are to develop confidence, imagination and discipline in my students. I give them the tools to work with and inspire them to improve. Please contact me through the query form on my website or through TutorFinder. I look forward to hearing from you!



I have worked with primary school, high school and university students. I have created and offered the following courses both privately and to groups of students: 'Creative Writing Workshops (years 2-3)', 'Preparation for OC (year 4)', 'Preparation for the Selective School Exam (years 5/6)', 'Advanced Creative Writing (any year)', 'Persuasive Writing Focus (any year)', 'Essential Essay Writing Skills (high school)', 'Writing and Responding to Texts Levels A - D (high school)' and 'Grammar Revision (any level)'. I have also taught English to adults from non-English speaking backgrounds and assisted HSC students with editing creative work and essays.

I am a member of the NSW Writers' Centre (and APRA as a songwriter). My Ph.D. is accessible online. My essays and poetry have appeared in national peer reviewed journals including Australian Religion Studies Review and Hecate. For more information, please see my website link on this page.

"Both my children became interested in writing stories from early primary school, and we were very lucky to have found Dr Shete who gave them lessons for more than 5 years. They not only learnt to apply different techniques to make their stories interesting, they also got training in writing other texts (e.g. persuavie writing, poetry). She encouraged both of them to enter writing competitions, and both won a range of prizes for their stories and poems at different times. Most importantly, they enjoyed their lessons with Dr Shete, and were most happy to do their writing homework and attend writing lessons. As a parent I really appreciated Michelle's feedback and the way she checked in with me to set goals for the kids."
