bespoke sessions...

...but writing and learning are iterative processes; their preferred teaching method is by way of workshops (one to one or group workshops) as they believe this is by far the best way to improve – it gets you writing and analysing your own work. Their aim is always, of course, to enable students to achieve their goals, but also to help make students aware of their own learning, allowing them to utilise and develop skills for lifelong use.

They set writing development exercises...

...enabling students to produce a piece of writing before the workshop (roughly 500-1000 words), which they then edit and annotate. This allows the entirety of the workshop to be spent in analysis and improvement, rather than half of it being wasted reading. For longer creative or critical projects, they also work of the basis of being able to edit 500-1,000 words/hour.

Workshop Rates


Depending on the level of study, the first session may need to be an assessment of the student's academic ability/tutoring requirements, or simply a workshop designed to build rapport and cover some fundamentals.

Senior School Student

When I came to the new school, the English lessons there were very hard for me. I was averaging a percentage of 40% and frankly, I was one of the worst English students in my class. Now, after learning with Ross, I was awarded a 93% English result in my year 8 end-of-the-year test.
His help to me is massive and I wouldn't have done it without him.
To anybody that wants a better English result, I would recommend Ross to you.
