About

"Sylvia's passion for English inspires curiosity and interest in her students. Her results in academic writing in both her undergraduate and post-graduate studies at the University of Sydney, are highly commendable." -University Mentor Reference

If your child is struggling with English I can help. My approach is as follows:

-Assessment to determine current level of knowledge
-Up-skilling and teaching of fundamental literacy and literary skills
-Assistance with homework tasks/assignments
-Provide a range of resources to reinforce concepts and skills
-Provide mock examinations and past papers
-Develop examination, time management and assessment skills.

Sylvia is a very passionate and fantastic tutor who helped boost my marks dramatically. Without her help I wouldn’t have gotten the marks I recieved. I would definitely recommend to anyone who is interested as she was a great help and one of the nicest and friendliest tutors you can have

Sylvia has been working with my son for over a year now and during this time his grades and attitute towards school work has improved greatly. Currently in year 9, he is preparing for the more challenging years ahead and now has the confidence to tackle written assessments using a structured approach. Sylvia is a fantastic motivator and manages to keep my son on track, which in itself is an achievement. She is passionate, friendly and professional, and has been a great influence on my son.
I will continue to engage Sylvia until my son completes year 12 and can highly recommend her for your tutoring needs.
10 out of 10!

Sylvia is without a doubt one of the most passionate and charismatic teachers on this website. Without her I would never have gotten the marks that I did or aced trials to the extent that I did. Sylvia is worth every cent and one of the most lovely, kind, compassionate and supportive teachers you will likely have

Perhaps one of the most talented tutors I've ever had. She was genuinely the reason I aced my trials this year and has helped me to excel in every aspect of English. Sylvia is an exuberant and charismatic young tutor who you would be lucky to be taught by!

Sylvia is without a doubt one of the most committed tutors I have ever had. She is so passionate about English and she has helped me so much this last year of my schooling. My marks have gone way into the A- range because of how simply and clearly she explains my assessment tasks and the texts that I am studying in class. I am so grateful for Sylvia and if you had to pick a tutor, I would strongly recommend it was Sylvia

Sylvia is the epitome of cool, calm and collected. She has is always able to conduct herself with grace and patience and I have no doubt this is what makes her an excellent choice as a tutor.
