I offer tailored tutoring for English students who need help understanding, analysing, and writing about English literature of any period and style.
Lessons can be 60 or 90 minutes long and we can either work on your homework and assignments, or explore new territory together. I am also happy to proofread and edit your previous work with you so that you gain insights on the writing process, and learn how to become an autonomous student.
If English is not your first language, or you struggle with grammar, spelling, and style, I can also help you!
Lisa-Jane is one of our best tutors. They have a high-quality profile, verified qualifications, a quick response time, and great reviews from students!
I am currently writing my PhD thesis on narrative theory and ambiguity in the short story at the University of Sydney, and have a BA in English literature and linguistics, and an MA in English literature and cultural studies. I have also had several pieces published in peer-reviewed academic journals.
I really love helping young people develop their awareness and understanding of literature, and have helped a number of secondary and tertiary students get through their exams and grow in confidence as they explore the rich resources of our language.
As well as tutoring, I have been teaching English as a second language for many years, which has given me a deep knowledge of the mechanics of English and how to use them to good effect when you write academically.
I am detail-focused and will help you to identify your own strengths and play to them.
I had the pleasure of being taught by Lisa-Jane for a bit more than 3 months in 2020. Her Cambridge classes were the best English classes I had ever had. It was an amazing and different experience as I only had had General English classes before. Her lessons were intense and enjoyable at the same time and also extremely valuable to brush up my English.
I strongly recommend Lisa-Jane as a teacher (and if you want to have some fun and a good laugh while learning English too) :)
Lisa was my first English teacher in Australia. Her passion for teaching and the way she shares her knowledge is just unreal! I fell in love with her classes. Every single day I was improving and getting closer to my achievements. She is talented and unique. I highly recommend Lisa as the best English teacher that anyone could have!!!
I had many English teachers in my life and I can surely say that Lisa is the best one I have ever had. She has been my teacher for six months and she is absolutely super clear, competent, organized, creative, cultured and fun! And, if needed, her beautiful smile will always cheer you up! Thank you Lisa!
Lisa is, by far, the best English teacher I have ever had. I met her after 5 months living in Australia and I can say that it was not until I found her that my English improved. Not only will she give you the best tips to pass the official exams but she will also make you understand grammar with the best examples, since she speaks many other languages and she can identify your way of thinking. No doubt she is the best!
I’ve known Lisa as an online and face-to-face teacher. In both scenarios she has proved to be an amazing teacher. Full of resources, adaptable, experienced are some of the qualities that make her an outstanding professional. Being able not only to identify your flaws but also their background, she specializes in giving lessons and correcting mistakes from their root.
Every time I meet with her my English improves greatly and I recommend that experience to everybody looking for a solid progress in their process of learning English.
Lisa is an excellent English teacher. Her teaching methods are great. Very clear and concise. Doesn’t waste your time explaining meaningless background information and always lectures with the intent to help you understand the material. Her great knowledge of English grammar helped me to improve my writing and reading skills allowing me to obtain a better score for my English proficiency test. She’s by far the best English tutor that I’ve had.
I had the opportunity to be with Lisa-Jane in various Cambridge preparation courses and I must say that her willingness to teach, knowledge, expertise and human attitude allowed me to fully enhance my language skills in all aspects of grammar, reading, writing and speaking. No doubt, she will give her best for helping to improve the English level of many more people.
