Hello, I am Dr Brett Jenkins, the Essay Whisperer.

I offer a tutoring and editing service, for students from Y10-12, tertiary education, and GAMSAT.

My specialist area is the Social Sciences and Humanities, particularly the subjects of English, Literature, Creative Writing, Philosophy, History, WACE, GAMSAT, STAT, and foundational units.

My priority is improving essay writing and communication skills so that your writing becomes more effective and feels more 'natural' in its construction. I also like to help improve reading and study habits, such as collating information and effective exam preparation, and can help you with understanding essay and exam questions. Best of all, I can give insights into what teachers and tutors are looking for when grading your assessment pieces.

Specifically, I can help with:
- Understanding terms and concepts
- Reading skills and comprehension
- Understanding essay and exam questions
- Punctuation, spelling, and grammar
- Writing thesis statements and topic sentences
- Formulating arguments
- Creative writing

I can help you prepare for your very important and expensive GAMSAT examination, specifically the 'Reasoning in Humanities and Social Sciences' and 'Written Communication' sections. We will go through practice essays and sample answers to help you attack the essay sections with confidence, and provide you with a simple structural formula which will cater for almost any quote they throw at you.

I also offer an editing and proofreading service for essays, reports, literature reviews, and theses for undergraduate and postgraduate students, and for most editing or proofreading needs.

I am available all days and most hours.



I have been a casual tutor and lecturer at Murdoch University for over seven years in
units ranging from English, Philosophy, Professional Writing, and various
foundational/transitional units, and have been working with Y10-12 students for several


I have a PhD from Murdoch University for English and Comparative Literature.


My rates are $50/hour if you come to me in Subiaco. If I come to you, there is a
negotiated travel fee.

"I cannot recommend Brett highly enough! He is professional as well as approachable and easy to talk to and has a great teaching technique. He has helped our daughter to improve so much, not just in literature, but across various subjects that require essay- type answers. 10/10!"
