EducationBachelor of Arts in History with Honors at Murdoch University, WA.
ExperienceI have been tutoring first-year university on-campus at Murdoch and on-line with Open University of Australia (OUA) for the past 7 years. In April 2012 I was one of four nationwide tutors with OUA to receive the bi-annual Tutor Excellence Award in Melbourne for my work with first-year on-line students in a unit titled 'Introduction to University Learning'(SSK12).
Being able to structure, research and reference an academic essay is the cornerstone of university success. I specialize in presenting, one-on-one, a two-hour course that teaches potential university students the requirements of academic essay writing,alerts them to the pitfalls (what not to do), and provides tips for polishing and perfecting their presentation.
After tutoring thousands of first-time university students, I have come to the firm belief that most people (of any age or background)greatly underestimate their academic abilities. All they need is some guidance and self-belief and they can quite literally astound themselves with their achievements.
I live in Ardross and will gladly meet you in whatever surroundings make you feel most comfortable - your home, a library, coffee-shop, wherever.
HobbiesI love movies and have even written a book in 2005 about the seamier side of Hollywood. In fact, I give free copies to anyone who wants one (I have a garage full of the little devils).
I support the West Coast Eagles in the AFL, so at least you know that your tutor is blessed with astonishingly sound judgment and good taste. Actually, I love most sports providing they take place on dry land. Although I have lived my entire life near the ocean, I flatly refuse to participate in any activity that might result in something eating me!
I am 66 years old, but don't look a day over 65. I am married, our children are all grown up, and my wife and I have the unbridled joy of providing a home environment for a couple of delightful Japanese students.
