Hello! With 7 years of high school English teaching experience (Years 7-12), I know how to build rapport with teenagers and help them to achieve their best. Whether you are seeking to build confidence in English, wanting to re-engage in reading and writing, or striving for excellence, I have experience tutoring and teaching students with varied learning goals.
My teaching style is all about growing student confidence - I focus on developing English skills that are targeted to individual needs and relevant to current class tasks.
I have loads of experience breaking English tasks into achievable chunks. I also have marking experience and know what markers are looking for in English tasks. English is my teaching speciality, but I am happy to help students with writing for any subject. I love working with teenagers and seeing their confidence grow.
Interested? I’m happy to offer a free meet and greet (online or in-person).

Lara is a talented and engaging educator. She’s the best English teacher I know! She knows how to connect with teenagers, and I’ve witnessed her empower her students to be confident. With extensive teaching and private tutoring experience, I highly recommend her as a high school English tutor.
