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

Methodology

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.

Background

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.

Rates

Travel Fee : $15
Rate for online lessons : $40/h
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : $200
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : $380

Details

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.
