Qualified English Tutor
Sydney tutor in Communication, Creative Writing, English, English Literature, Essay Writing, Journalism, Media Studies, Reading, Creative Writing
I have completed my masters in English literature and creative writing with a High Distinction average.
My passion for writing extends into my career as I have been working as a journalist for more than 10 years. I have written for The Daily Telegraph, The Sunday Telegraph, and The Australian. I have worked in broadcast journalism for Sky News Australia and ABC News 24, and as both an editor and reporter for a number of online publications. I currently work in breakfast news as a radio journalist for the nation's biggest radio network.
Therefore, my skills can help students not only improve their written English skills and comprehension, but also their public speaking skills.
I believe encouragement and persistence to be key factors of any tutoring experience. Developing strong study skills is also vital, and something I can help students achieve. I enjoy working with students to help bring out the best in them and to make English a fun and enjoyable subject.
I have worked with several high school students helping them to develop strong study skills in preparation for high school and university.
I am passionate about helping students to develop the skills necessary to not only tackle English, but to also develop a love and understanding of the subject.
I believe in harboring those skills (and, hopefully, that same passion) by encouraging students to understand literary concepts from their own frame of reference and not to just learn through repetition. This way, they are prepared and equip to deal with any and all elements of the subject no matter how it's delivered to them - be that through in class learning or exams.
