English tutoring doesn’t just help in English class. Reading and writing are crucial skills in all subject areas, and for success later in life. When your child improves their reading and writing skills, you are likely to see improvements across the board.
I provide tutoring for NCEA and CIE English, essay writing across all subjects, and reading and writing skills for younger students. My highly effective, knowledge-rich, mastery-based teaching approach is grounded in the great relationships I build with students. Students build literacy skills while also learning new knowledge about the world, which is more interesting and more effective than generic literacy-building activities. Students learn through a carefully sequenced approach to reading and writing skills which quickly builds students’ confidence and ensures that their progress is clearly visible.
Pricing & Location

I offer small-group online classes on Outschool.
My most popular classes on Outschool focus on building writing skills using a systematic, step-by-step method that demystifies writing great sentences, paragraphs, and essays. Students can try out parts of this method through my one-time classes, “Sparkling Sentences for Excellent Essays” and “Powerful Paragraphs for Excellent Essays,” or they can work through the whole writing process in my eight-week course, “Argumentative Writing Step-By-Step.” Students can also practice their research skills in my weekly note-taking practice class.
I also offer writing-intensive literature classes. In these classes, we use writing and discussion to deepen our knowledge of the text and push us to think about the text in different ways. Students leave my literature classes not only with a strong understanding of the text, but with background knowledge that will serve them well in their future reading, and the ability to see connections between books and the world around them, as well as stronger writing skills.
