Hi. If you are seeking expertise in English, please read on! My name is Jill. I am a Qld registered specialist English teacher and tutor. During the past thirty years, I have worked as English Head of Dept., ESL Co-ordinator, Literacy Coordinator and Uni tutor. I am currently working from Graduate English Academy at both the Sunnybank and Aspley offices as a private teacher of Primary, Junior and Senior English and uni tutor in Business, Nursing, Education and Tesol. Experienced Senior English tutors (all former Heads of English Departments and uni tutors) work with me providing top quality private tutoring in Junior and Senior assignments, professional English and uni assignments for various university degrees and tafe diplomas.
Graduate English focuses on repairing and strengthening each student's specific English problems and developing each student's English skills to the highest possible level. Each of our students is a special project for a successful future. I can provide a Grammar Fix catch up Course (5- 10 lessons) which diagnoses grammar misunderstandings and provides an upgrade of your written English skills to formal High English which improves your school results, university and professional prospects. I also teach ESL [elementary to advanced] and English for academic and professional purposes .
My clients are ambitious students, business people and professionals who are determined to be successful achievers. For students Grade 4 to Grade 12 to university who are wanting to raise their marks, we offer holiday extension shortcourses in advanced grammar, reading comprehension, essay writing and advanced vocabulary skills. Private one to one intensive short courses of 12 hours (6x2 hour lessons) are also available.
My intensive 5 day short courses (3 hours per day in small groups) run during school holidays and are a quick English Fix, boosting your grammar, reading, vocabulary and writing skills. I also run a five day (3 hours per day in small groups) short course for QCS training, providing practice with past papers and models of written responses. We provide all textbooks and computer file resources from our extensive English Dept resource. base at Graduate English Academy, 4/6 Zamia St Sunnybank.

Your first lesson involves a written grammar test to identify your areas of weakness in
English grammar; following an analysis of test results I design an individualised English
course to correct each student's weaknesses, and provide English textbooks that suit
your needs. Our rates are $60 per hour, which includes the use of the student's
personal English course, text book resources and the English Dept database at our
tutoring rooms, as well as help with assignments and essays.
