Do you have a personal message for students?
Hi there. I am interested in helping you become more skilled at, and confident in, your writing, reading and comprehension skills. I have been doing this with students here in the UK and in Australia for many years. I believe all young people have amazing potential to learn and become whatever they want to be. Sometimes we need a bit extra help to do that and I am really good at finding out where people need that help. I hope we can start work to get you moving forward some day soon!
