Scholarly is committed to improving the learning outcomes of Queensland students studying QCE English. Our online courses, live webinars and downloadable resources provide students with expert advice and support - tailored to meet the assessment demands of the new Queensland General English syllabus. Our goal is to boost students' confidence and help them achieve academic success.
I was drawn to the teaching profession out of a genuine desire to pass on my love of literature to young people. With the exception of my family (four young sons), teaching English is my greatest passion.
I have taught English for over 15 years in both independent and government high schools, and I've also taught Academic English at the University of Queensland as part of the Tertiary Preparation Program. My qualifications include a Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Education, and a Certificate IV in Training and Education.
As a teacher and tutor, I have always fostered positive relationships with my students, and my particular strength lies in making complex information accessible and engaging. I am genuinely excited about the launch of Scholarly Online and the possibility of helping students achieve success in their English studies.
Writing is a skill that does not come naturally to some people. However, I truly believe that with the right guidance, anyone can master the ability to write effectively for a range of genres. My role as a tutor is not to add more work to a student’s already significant workload. Rather, I want to minimise the overwhelm and help to boost students' confidence. I like to create positive educational experiences for my students, ensuring the learning environment is stress-free and engaging. Don't just take my word for it, enrol in one of my online courses and see for yourself!
