3rd year University Student in Brisbane giving English and comprehension lessons for High School and Primary School students, or anyone who wants to improve their basic literacy!

Methodology

I am a focused, friendly and patient tutor, and I work to the needs and at the pace of each new student.

Lessons will be based around your goals (which we will determine together) or around specific criteria for assignments/exams.

I can help with:
- Comprehension
- Grammar
- Literacy
- Spelling
- Assignments and Exam prep
- Creative writing
- Poetry
- Exploring your writing abilities.

*Please note I only tutor from year level 6 and up to end of high school*

Background

I am currently a student at studying a bachelor of Business and Science, with Public Relations and Psychology as my majors. I have prior experience working with high school students - tutoring and coaching a debate team, as well as peer support - and have consistently achieved outstanding results in all English based subjects myself.

Though I am not studying English or Literature at university, I am proficient in many styles of writing (narrative/creative/poetry, descriptive essays, expository essays, argumentative/persuasive essays, scientific report styles, literature reviews).

I am 22, and work well with students who are eager to learn. Lessons will be designed to match the learning style and pace of all students.

Rates

Travel Fee : $5
Rate for online lessons : $25/h
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : $20

Details

For more intensive tutoring (ie., closer to exam times/specific help with essays/grade boosting tutoring) I will charge $35/hour.
If session is cancelled less than 24 hours in advance, I charge a cancellation fee of 20% of the asked price.
