Ms Amy Hickman Brisbane Tutor in Communication, Creative Writing, English, English Literature, Essay Writing, Reading

While I have taught at the University classroom level for 4 plus years, I find real joy in tutoring and mentoring students from Year 5 up through postgraduate levels. Qualified with a PhD in Rhetoric and Composition and the Teaching of English, I offer tuition in academic and creative writing skills for students at University and junior/senior school levels. I specialize in academic, creative, and professional writing genres, and I welcome ESL learners. As a former nurse, I also specialize in writing for the health professions, medicine, and social services.

I am a process oriented teacher. I assist students with their critical thinking skills that can translate to putting ideas on paper. From there, we work on organization and conventional aspects of writing, revision, and editing skills. I believe everyone can grow in their writing skills, and be creative in their tasks.

Often students find it helpful to meet on a weekly basis in order to build their skills in textual analysis and writing over the course of the term.

I also specialize in providing tuition and editing skills for university and postgraduate students.

I am available weekdays. I meet students at Indooroopilly, Towoong, and other centrally placed libraries. I can make home visits if necessary. My rate is $60 per hour.
