Private English Tutoring in Sydney's Inner-West

English with Rebecca is very thought-provoking and engaging. I’ve acquired a deeper understanding of my texts in these lessons compared to what is offered at school and improved on my writing skills over the years.

Greg Kim, Year 12- Sydney Boys High School

Rebecca’s extensive knowledge about everything never fails to amaze me. She introduces me to new and alternative perspectives on my texts which is especially helpful.

Madeleine Tang, Year 12 – PLC Sydney ~

It really helps to have Rebecca answer questions or explain concepts that are difficult to understand in class. Since I’ve started tutoring, I’ve really started to understand texts through learning the relationship between context and themes.

Olivia Lye, Year 12 – Girraween High School

The tutors at Sleight of Pen were really helpful and encouraging during my assessment period. They were extremely flexible & offered around the clock support. My tutor was extremely insightful and I felt as if even after one lesson I had already improved my skills in essay writing.  I would strongly recommend service to anybody who is completing their preliminary study or HSC  year.

Chiara Berlusconi, Year 12 – Georges River College

I was struggling with understanding the key values and context of my texts but Yuanze’s engaging and in-depth explanations and questions helped me further develop my understanding. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who needs assistance with analysing texts, writing or improving marks in general.

Anthony Kroeger, Year 12- Parramatta Marist High School

The lesson with Yuanze was really helpful! She was able to clarify any concepts I was confused about and provided me with extra information regarding the texts I am doing.
