1st in NSW English Adv | 7 Years Experience Tutoring | Medical Student
Hi, I'm Sharon and I've tutored HSC English for 7 years, having graduated from North Sydney Girls in 2014. I topped the state in English Advanced (you can check the 2014 Top Achievers list!) and was ranked 1st internally for all units of English I took (Advanced and Extension 1). I've received my Bachelor of Medical Science (Hons) from UNSW and am currently completing my Doctor of Medicine at WSU.
Since 2015, I've been teaching Years 11 and 12 English Advanced, English Extension 1 and English Extension 2. (NOT Standard, sorry!) Including my own HSC, I have engaged with 3 HSC English syllabus changes, so I have extensive experience guiding senior students of all levels and who study a whole range of different texts. My students have come from James Ruse, North Sydney Girls, North Sydney Boys, Sydney Boys, Baulkham Hills, Hornsby Girls, Girraween, Ryde Secondary, Sydney Grammar, St George Girls, Abbotsleigh, Pymble Ladies, Knox Grammar, St Aloysius and more. Over the years I've also been a speaker at HSC English seminars.
Suffice to say, I've been in the game a long time, and what motivates me is seeing students flourish to their full potential and gain confidence in their skills. I provide a supportive and nurturing environment so that you get there.
As a medical student as well, I have experienced firsthand the reality of applying for the degree in both an undergraduate and postgraduate capacity. I am always happy to chat about this with students who are interested in the same path.
THERE IS NOW A WAITING LIST FOR YEAR 11/12 STUDENTS ONLY.
I am also offering essay/creative marking at $40/piece.
Please get in touch with me if you're interested in chatting further. 🙂

Sharon was an amazing English tutor who was able to help me immensely during my HSC. She knows the English syllabus inside and out and has an extremely vast and thorough understanding of a lot of texts, and hence is able to provide specific and thoughtful feedback. She also really does do everything for her students, in particular, her involvement with her kids’ work outside of lessons. As long as you reach out, she’s always willing to read and mark anything you send her, or just reply to messages and questions in a timely manner which was a really big thing for me. As such, lesson with felt like we really made a lot of progress as she also didn’t waste any time. The lessons themselves were really personalised and catered to the student such that she could focus and work on what you needed help on the most. Overall, her knowledge, work ethic and compassion for her students aided me heavily for English, I couldn’t recommended her more!

Sharon is a remarkable tutor who gives detailed, applicable, and personalised guidance. Providing incisive insight into texts and constructive feedback for essays and creatives, Sharon was not only able to elevate my writing, but vastly bolster my confidence to tackle the challenges of the English Advanced course. Furthermore, her advice about school and post-school life was invaluable, allowing me to feel more relaxed and assured. I could not recommend Sharon more highly.

Sharon has been a really amazing tutor who has always been reliable and dedicated to her students!! I joined really late in the HSC year but she helped me boost my confidence in my essay and creative writing skills in a very short period of time. Her feedback is always extremely thorough, helpful and honest.

Through years 11 and 12, Sharon helped immensely with consolidating and extending upon what was being taught in school in advanced and extension 1 English, and I saw my skills expand as my writing skills were nurtured and challenged. Apart from being very helpful and well-informed within classes, Sharon was always happy to give advice on school and post-school plans in general, cultivating an atmosphere that allowed for me to walk into the English HSC exams confident after being tutored by someone as thoughtful, kind and engaging as her.
