Meet Me - James

I am a qualified teacher who has taught English in Queensland secondary schools. I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Queensland as well as two graduate diplomas. I have travelled several times in Asia, Europe and North America.


I have helped students from South America, the Middle East, Asia, Europe and Africa. I am passionate about writing, teaching and helping others succeed.

James is the best!

He helped me in many assignments. I have a medium level in English and thanks to him, I learned about my mistakes in grammar, and also, with his advice and corrections, I was able to get a better score for my assignments.
