English and Literacy Tutoring

Is your child struggling with reading and writing? Are the increased demands of secondary school getting to them? Are they not doing as well in NCEA assessments as you hoped?

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 English, essay writing across all subjects, and reading and writing skills for younger students. As an ex-teacher, I know what your child’s teacher is working towards, and I the best methods for achieving great results.

My tutoring approach is systematic and engaging. In every tutoring session, the student will practice reading, writing, and speaking about topics that interest them or are relevant to their school work. We will break down the mysteries of writing effective sentences, paragraphs, and essays, and practice understanding texts and forming opinions about them.
