Essay Writing, Creative Writing, English Literature

I have been an English teacher in Australia for well over 20 years and specialise in teaching the Higher School Certificate English course. My expertise is in examination preparation, essay writing, critical analysis and creative and imaginative writing. I am an HSC exam marker and have had a wealth of experience in assisting students to achieve their best mark in both university and school contexts. I have perfected a simple yet highly effective formula for composing an essay which shows students how to compose an engaging thesis that is well supported by textual evidence. I am pedantic about the sophistication of expression and have a strong skill set in teaching students how to showcase interesting, perceptive and insightful ideas within the context of their writing. I also have a wealth of experience in supporting and educating teachers in the best practices for effective teaching of English Literature.

Extra information

I have a very broad skill set and pride myself on being able to teach essay writing, creative writing and the shaping of analytical responses in a way that streamlines and simplifies what is often seen as an onerous task. I approach these skills in a simple yet engaging manner which I support with rich examples and guarantee those who adhere to my practices will be able to add a level of sophistication and insight to their writing which is very impressive. In addition to this I also teach English Literature and all its components.

Dave
Boost your Study Skills: General or Assignment-based Tutoring
Hi, my name is Dave and I am a University (BSc) graduate who attended one of the top University Honors Colleges in the Netherlands. During my many years in the education system I have developed strong skills in academics, studying and teaching. The specific goal of this course is to give a meaningful boost to the student's ability to study efficiently and independently. This course is highly adaptable to the student's needs and preferences. Perhaps you would like support for a specific assignment, help to prepare for a tough exam or for me to review an essay you have written; or maybe you just have trouble studying efficiently and you are in need of some tips and tricks. My goal is always to not only help the student during the class, but also to provide them with the tools they need to thrive by themselves afterward. My own specialty lies mainly in the fields of Social Sciences, Politics, (Political) Economics, Game Theory, History, Religion, Philosophy and Academic Writing. I also have a decent amount of experience with International Law, Statistics and Geography. However, the overwhelming majority of the principles and tactics I teach in this class can be applied to any field or discipline, as the emphasis is put on the method of studying more so than on the content.

Impeccable French: private classes tailored for you
Whether you'd like to sharpen your style, perfect your oral skills, prepare an exam or just start from scratch, I'd be glad to walk you through the jungle of the French language. My methods are based on listening, dialog and creativity: they adjust to match your needs, goals and interests may you be looking for help with academic French at school, conversational French, or writing tips (you name it!) You can count on lots of videos, podcasts, articles, songs, fiction and non fiction texts, photos, art pieces, social media posts, TV series, etc. as well as oral and written homemade exercises, tests, etc. to go on at your own pace with autonomy. I am there to make you feel comfortable and confident and help you reveal your linguistic and literary skills in a relaxed and playful atmosphere. Your questions, doubts and mistakes will be the engine of the classes. I studied Modern Literature and Creative Writing in Paris and I have tutored students of all ages and proficiency since 2017. I keep on learning as well with each and everyone of my students. Feel free to contact me! Thank you! Noémie

My own personal statement got me accepted into several top UK Universities, including the London School of Economics. You can be assured that if you work with me, together we can create the perfect personal statement for you. This service can be particularly beneficial if English is not your first language. We will have this personal statement finished in one class. You simply need to answer a short questionnaire to give me all the information I need to work with and then I can write your personal statement. We can then review it together and make changes as you see fit. Let me help you get into your ideal University!
