Blair tutored me during my HSC and the results have been tremendous. He really understands how to customise his tutoring methods for each individual student. Personally I learn quite differently to others, and most methods didn't help me, but Blair was able to help me maximise my potential throughout the years - the small tips and tricks really make a big difference. Finishing my English HSC last week, made me realise how much his method helped me face the papers with better mentality and approach to achieve the maximum possible marks. Definitely one of the best tutors out there, highly recommended.
When I first started year 12, I had a very weak understanding of how to tackle my English exams at school and thus performed poorly. However Blair's effective teaching methods and constant encouragement has helped my confidence grow when it comes to English. It wasn't until I had him as my tutor that I was able to achieve much higher results in my essays and even full marks for some. I personally believe that he is very different to many tutors because he takes pride in teaching and actually cares about his students. If you don't understand something, he will take his time to explain it to you whilst providing you with very useful tips. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a good and motivating english tutor. Thanks again Blair for being an excellent teacher and for helping me dramatically improve in my rank!
During my HSC year, I was lucky enough to have had the opportunity to work with Blair on my subject of English Advanced. Blair's teaching method is truly commendable, and with his guidance, I was able to perform so much better on my exams, and achieve a high rank in the subject. Not only is he a brilliant teacher, but he was patient and understanding in helping me through the stressful year. His explanations of texts were easy to understand, and he offered great advice on how to tackle the subject. I highly recommend Blair to anyone looking for a motivating, knowledgeable and excellent tutor!! Blair, thank you again for all your help.
Blair is a tutor who is dedicated to his craft, patient with his students and highly knowledgeable on a vast array of texts. His talents lie within his ability to contextualize texts, improve weaknesses and bring a sub-par essay to high A range, all of which has made him an English tutor second to none. However, his drive in helping his students succeed is what separates him from most. He is willing to spend the time ensuring that you have understood everything about your text, helps in constructing a cohesive and sophisticated response to your texts but most importantly is a friendly and approachable person who always wants to know how you have been, whether you are stressed and what he can do to help you. It is due to these reasons and many more that I would highly recommend Blair as a tutor to anyone interested.
I started tutoring with Blair for advanced English in the second term of my HSC this year-probably the best decision I have ever made. My English marks had always been pretty average, with my understanding of the subject and its demands considerably vague at times. However, with Blair's methodical, patient and supportive approach to teaching, as well as his immensely profound knowledge of a variety of texts, I was able to lift my marks significantly to a point whereby I was achieving full marks. Every class, he is extremely enthusiastic and passionate, eager to improve in areas that require more work. His constant praise and amazingly fun personality further helped me to relieve my stress when going into exams, as well as enjoy each lesson. I am immensely grateful to have been able to work with such a great tutor and recommend his teaching to anyone that is seeking an English tutor for the HSC.
Being tutored by Blair has really opened me up to accept English as an enjoyable subject despite this not being the case before with other teachers. I started tutoring with Blair right before an exam, and his amazing skills as a teacher were able to calm my nerves and also prepare me sufficiently for the upcoming exam. He is very approachable and always has something useful and interesting to contribute to my learning experience. Blair has been a magnificent teacher due to not only his professionalism, but also his passion towards teaching literature. I am intensely grateful for his help and guidance during the HSC course and I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for an amazing tutor!
