"Thanks to Paul, over the last year I was able to go from fairly average marks of 70-75 in English advanced to 2nd in my year for year 12 HSC!! Paul is extensively knowledgeable in numerous texts and subjects, and is an extremely encouraging and motivating tutor. Our weekly meetings allowed me to clarify my analysis of texts, brainstorm their broader implication /connections with other ideas, and overall improve my thinking and writing clarity. He is very enthusiastic about the subject, and is a clear and creative thinker. As an English tutor, I highly recommend Paul and am grateful for all his help. Without out him, I am sure none of this would have been possible."
