Doctor of Creative Writing gives lessons to all high school and university students, on the Central Coast and some parts of Sydney

My lessons are student focused, which means that I teach the things you need to know to meet your goals. Lessons are very structured, and include reading, writing, speaking, grammar and vocabulary skills. You will enjoy classes developed just for you.

Rates vary according to the distance I have to travel and whether or not I can combine your lessons with those of other students. I am conscious of the need to keep your costs down.

I teach esl (english). For the following level(s): primary school, early high school, year 10, year 11-12, TAFE, undergraduate, diploma/certificate, postgraduate, phd, beginner, intermediate, advanced, professional, children.
I give lessons in person, at my home or the student's home.
I give lessons by Webcam.

John's Experience

In the classroom, I am successful in teaching English to students from many countries, including Saudi Arabia, Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Egypt, Japan, Korea, Venezuela. I also taught school children at private schools and undergraduate courses at a university in China.
