NOTE: I AM NOW AVAILABLE TO PROVIDE AN ONLINE TUTORING SERVICE VIA ZOOM 6 DAYS A WEEK. GROUP CLASSES (2 OR MORE STUDENTS) ARE WELCOME: A new service I am providing! (1/9/2021)

Please contact me via the TutorFinder messaging system and I will reply as quickly as possible. Unfortunately, I do not respond to recruiters.


I can bring my creativity and belief in combining tried and true methods with more innovative strategies to tutoring lessons. I have had over ten years prior experience in both the private tutoring of the Humanities and English as well as small group teaching of English at private colleges throughout Sydney. I am passionate about all HSC History and English subjects. I have also taught in high schools throughout Sydney, Melbourne and the United Kingdom.

I am a patient and friendly person who enjoys helping students develop their potential. You will also be able to take advantage of a qualified teacher who will quickly assess the best ways to bring you success. I pride myself in starting each lesson in an engaging fashion but balance this with having you practise your writing skills and essay structure as much as possible.

I also offer private tutoring from primary to tertiary levels in English language and grammar.

If you select me, please be aware of the following guidelines so as to allow for a smoother tuition experience:

1) ASSISTANCE WITH ASSIGNMENTS- DUE DATE: You must contact me at least THREE (3) days prior to the due date of your assignment or I will not consider your request. Inform me immediately regarding any deadline extensions provided. Please send me the task notification before the lesson.
2) *Please be aware, for ethical reasons, I do not write essays for tertiary students. Furthermore, I reserve the right to terminate services if I believe I am being asked to participate in any form of plagiarism or cheating in assessments. All work must be your own.*


Currently available: -weekdays 9:00am-7:00pm (Please check with me for current availability.)
