Hello! My name is Claudia, and I have a Master’s degree of Writing, Editing and Publishing from The University of Queensland (in which I received the Dean’s Commendation for Academic Excellence). I am 26 years old, and have been tutoring primary, high school and university students for over 9 years. Alongside my online tutoring business (ACCADEMIA), I work as a professional editor (having my edited work published in print and online), and will be commencing my PhD over the next year.
I tutor subjects within the ACARA and IB, and thoroughly enjoy working with each of my students. My teaching specialises in the humanities (English, History, Literature, Religion, Philosophy, etc.), however, as a professionally trained editor, I also offer proofreading, editing and drafting assistance across all subject areas (outside of education and assessment, I have edited chapbooks, anthologies, postgraduate dissertations, fiction and non-fiction manuscripts, and various shorter works for an array of clients and publishing presses).
I am a very motivated learner and I love to teach. I employ a wide range of studying methods and techniques to suit each individual learning style. I have the privilege to be familiar with current teaching and textbook content used within the curriculum, while also designing my own activities and exercises for my students to complete.
I have worked with students from Brisbane Girls Grammar, Brisbane Boys Grammar, All Hallows, Somerville House, Brisbane Boys College, Ambrose Treacy College, Stuartholme, St Peter’s Lutheran College, St Rita’s College, Queensland Academy for Science Mathematics & Technology, St Joseph’s (Gregory Terrace), Indooroopilly State High School, Toowoomba Grammar, Ipswich Grammar, Redeemer Lutheran School, Brisbane State High School, Kenmore State High School, Lourdes Hill, Padua College, Anglican Church Grammar School, Ferny Grove State High School, and a few schools in central Queensland.
I am inclusive of all identities, and really enjoy working with children and teenagers; I am friendly, personable and can establish rapport with all personality styles quickly and easily. My family work in universities and high schools, so education was a very important part of my upbringing.
I tutor all of my students online via Zoom, and I also offer editing services via email. I often have limited availability, so please don't hesitate to contact me if you would like to secure a time. All Zoom sessions (60, 90 and 120 minutes) are reserved in advance through my website booking system via a private link. Happy to answer any questions. I look forward to hearing from you.

Claudia! Just wanted to pop on here to say thanks again so much for all your help for my grade 11 & 12. I’ve gotten into my DREAM course at uni! You made the IB fun even though it was so difficult and tiring at times (haha). Would definitely (and already have) recommended you to my friends still in high school. Big thanks :)

Claudia offers terrific guidance in English! Our son has now improved in his grades after he initially struggled with the new ATAR work in term 1. Would recommend Claudia to everyone.

Claudia possesses incredible knowledge about English, writing and literature, which has been great for our son who has a tendency to fall behind in this subject area. I can attest to her care, patience and commitment. I highly recommend her to anyone interested in an English tutor.

Thank you Claudia for all your help! I really enjoyed tutoring and getting to know you. I don’t know how I would have survived year 12 last year without you. You are so intelligent and your feedback was so thorough, I could always count on you when I was feeling confused and overwhelmed with my school work. Thank you so much!

Claudia has been marvellous for our son in his year 11 english, history and philosophy study. He thoroughly enjoys her help, and his grades and work ethic have significantly improved. His approach in writing assignments (which he previously struggled with) has changed for the better, thanks to Claudia.

Claudia tutored my younger sister throughout high school and did an incredible job. She has a genuine, warm approach to teaching but it also very persistent and patient. My sister started taking more pride in her academic work after seeing Claudia. I highly recommend her services.
