An editor/writer with a BA in Journalism and a Cert IV in training & assessment, here to improve your English skills for high-school or Uni in Brisbane.

Methodology

Every aspect of English has several different angels from which to explain. Using every angel creates a solid understanding. Not every learner is an auditory learner, I incorporate visual aides wherever possible, and try to relate to the learner through their interests.

Background

I edit PhD Theses for university students who speak English as a second language.
I have edited in the publishing industry.
I teach creative writing courses for Brisbane Writers' Workshop.
I work with aspiring authors through manuscript assessment.
English and Literature are my passions.
