My Tuition Services


"The secret of education lies in respecting the pupil." Ralph Waldo Emerson

My students span the age range: five year olds wanting some help with their reading through to university students who need to brush up on their basic English and essay writing skills.
Every student comes with their own particular goal but a growing number of intermediate and college students come concerned about their essay writing skills and general readiness for the NCEA or Cambridge exam system. It could be that they need help to find that belief in themselves, that in turn enables them to take their work to the next level. Or for some it's simply a matter of getting individual attention that can be hard to find in today's busy class, combined with a programme of work that targets particular areas.

Some students just want to rekindle their creative writing abilities as they tend to do less and less with the onset of more formal writing.
