With 20 years of teaching experience, I have prepared thousands of students for national and international exams all over the world. I have taught in the UK, and now I specialise in preparing students for NSW Selective High School Placement Test in Australia for Emabooks Press.


In our Online Class, we cover the vast array of reading and writing skills required to excel in classwork, homework, NAPLAN tests, and, crucially, in the Selective High School Placement Test. Our lessons are fast-paced, engaging, and interactive, and we work hard to ensure your child is constantly learning and improving.
