Hi, I’m Patrick. English tutor since 2012. Award winning writer. USyd English graduate. Lets smash HSC English together.

Smashing HSC English means one thing: Give The Marker What They Want.

You and I will do this together. I will show you how. And I'm chill, so we'll have a laugh along the way. Promise!

What will you get out of tutoring with me? You will:

Understand your texts - I mean REALLY understand them.

Write perfectly constructed and argued essays and responses - the kind your teachers and markers want to read!

Write more fluently: precise, concise, on point.

If you need to get more confident with English we will build that confidence together. If you're doing Extension English we will get our heads round those big themes and deconstruct those complex texts. And if you're doing ESL English you'll benefit from my Cambridge TESOL qualifications and a patient, supportive approach to learning.

Are you motivated to get a big number in English this year? Get in touch today. We've got work to do!
