Prolific writer, published author and writing teacher. I can help you to improve your written expression in English across all genres.

Methodology

We learn best when challenged with questions and asked to solve problems. This is the Socratic method of call and response. We won't be doing any rote learning or memorizing, we will be doing reading and writing exercises designed to get you where you need to be.

Background

I am a prolific writer. I do a weekly column, I've written eight books and I do freelance work in public relations and corporate communications. I taught English grammar and expression to journalism students for over 20 years. I can help you to improve your writing whether for business, study or pleasure.

Martin Hirst was one of my lecturers at Edith Cowan University. He is passionate about journalism and about producing good journalists and this makes him a highly engaging teacher. Martin made me more confident in my abilities as a thinker and writer - I will always owe him for the time and effort he put into helping to form me as a journalist.
