About me:

As a tutor, I am extremely dedicating to ensuring that my students will achieve the best marks they possibly can, and I understand what is important in tutoring. With my help, you can expect to receive guidance in not only the content of the courses, but also stylistic advice, thus learning how to become a better writer and thinker which will extend across all your subjects. I myself received tutoring during high school and will strive to make your experience as easy and helpful as possible.

I’m immensely passionate about English, writing, and the study of literature, history, classics and law. I am an experienced tutor and I am continually evolving my understanding of literature and my approach to tutoring. I have spent a lot of time exploring English literature, literary criticism, and literary theory beyond the curriculum, and I bring the experience and insights I have gained from that into the study of English within the confines of the curriculum. This I believe elevates good marks to top marks. My rates are $80 an hour for in-person and $70 an hour over Zoom.

I have experienced tutoring at all levels from Standard to Extension, and have tutored students from private, public selective, and comprehensive schools.

I’m particularly interested in tutoring students to help with their study of poetry, or students who need help with essay writing or research. I can help with understanding essay structure, the analysis of texts, and the analysis of techniques. After going through essay writing more generally, we will construct an essay together over time, through which you will learn the above.

I’m also interested in students doing critical essays for Extension 2 should you want help with developing a an idea, research skills, long-form essay writing, or the application of literary theory.

Any students also interested in the study of English at the tertiary level can also get in touch. Also, any students who are be passionate about English but feel unable to convert this passion into the HSC English or the HSC exams can get in touch, as I initially struggled with this myself.

I achieved two state ranks, achieved the Premiers All Rounders list for 11 units and was in the Firsts Debating in Year 11 and 12 as well as the Captain of Oratory. Feel free to contact me if you are interested and I look forward to working with you.
