My name is Jess and I study double degree medicine at the University of Sydney. I obtained state rank of 2nd in NSW in English Extension 1 and 2nd in NSW in Latin Extension in 2018, achieving an ATAR of 99.95.
I also majored in English Literature in my undergraduate at University, for which I was on the Dean's Honours List. I have a genuine passion for English and mentoring my students to achieve their fullest potential in this high-stakes subject!
Since graduating, I've garnered extensive experience tutoring English at a specialist English tuition firm where I gained insider's knowledge of new HSC syllabus and guided over 30 students to full mark outcomes and top ranks in their cohorts.
I now exclusively teach privately, with my student base from schools including Pymble Ladies, James Ruse, Baulkham Hills, North Sydney Girls, Sydney Boys, and Meriden.
Over my past 4 years teaching, I've gained valuable insight into tailoring lessons to my students' needs &
school-specific expectations, and hope to pass my roadmap to succeeding in HSC English onto you!

Hear from my past students
"My Year 12 English experience was heavily brightened with Jessica’s help. With the difficult year of isolations and online learning, her lessons provided substantial improvements to my ability in English. Initially going into the year I had almost no confidence in my English ability and she helped to draw that confidence out and eventually receive a mark that totally exceeded my expectations in the ultimate HSC exam. Without hesitation I would recommend her teaching and examination preparation to anyone looking for help in English."
Sydney Boys High School
"Jessica is an amazing tutor who helped me improve so much in English throughout Year 11 and 12. She is both passionate about English, as well as extremely dedicated to her role as a tutor, always being willing to answer my questions and give feedback, even outside of lessons. Her lessons really helped me focus on improving my weaknesses, especially in crafting concise, yet sophisticated arguments for essays, as well as developing and expanding on ideas for creatives, which was something I struggled with a lot before having her has a tutor. In addition to this, Jessica has helped immensely with improving my exam technique, including deconstructing essay questions, and fluently adapting responses to harder prompts. As well as being a fantastic tutor, Jessica cares a lot about her students and was so encouraging and supportive of me, even in non-English related matters. I definitely could not have done so well in English without Jessica’s help! I highly recommend Jessica as a tutor.”
"Jess is a fantastic English tutor who helped me to both improve my marks and enjoy English again. She was the perfect tutor for me as she not only helped edit my work but also taught me content relating to my various English modules, providing me with new, critical perspectives on the texts I was studying, thus allowing me to further develop my own ideas. She also was able to identify my key weaknesses in the subject (specifically my exam technique) which we would work on together, allowing me to excel in both my hand in assignments and in my written exams. Furthermore, Jess knows the HSC system inside out and helped me to work “smart not hard” which helped me avoid burning out (this is vital in year 12). I’ve had a few English tutors in the past but ultimately Jess was my favourite and helped me achieve my band six goal in English."
