EducationI have a PhD from Murdoch University for English and Comparative Literature
ExperienceHello, I am Dr Brett Jenkins, the Essay Whisperer.
I offer a tutoring and editing service, for students from Y10-12 and tertiary education.
My specialist area is the Social Sciences and Humanities, particularly the subjects of English, Literature, Creative Writing, Philosophy, History, WACE, GAMSAT, STAT, and foundational units.
My priority is improving essay writing and communication skills so that your writing becomes more effective and feels more 'natural' in its construction. I also like to help improve reading and study habits, such as collating information and effective exam preparation, and can help you with understanding essay and exam questions. Best of all, I can give insights into what teachers and tutors are looking for when grading your assessment pieces.
Specifically, I can help with:
- Understanding terms and concepts
- Reading skills and comprehension
- Understanding essay and exam questions
- Punctuation, spelling, and grammar
- Writing thesis statements and topic sentences
- Formulating arguments
- Creative writing
I also offer an editing and proofreading service for essays, reports, literature reviews, and theses for undergraduate and postgraduate students, and for most
editing or proofreading needs.
I am available all days and most hours
HobbiesI have interests in various academic pursuits such as writing, reading, watching movies, and analysing popular culture (sitcoms are my favourite!). But I also like to mix it up with downhill mountain biking and indoor rock climbing, and being a part-time stay-at-home dad.
