A qualified Education Counsellor, Christopher regularly helps students who want to study in Australia, writing statements of purpose and assisting in the construction of reference letters.



Finding a teacher who can guide you in the construction of a well written and articulated statement of purpose can make a difference to your university application.  Each SOP is of course different, as each student has a different set of ambitions and previous experiences.  Chris takes the time to work with the student, look at the entry requirements and modify a document specifically for each student.


As an IELTS and TOEFL teacher Chris gives students of all levels the skills necessary to study in Australia or the UK

                      " A teacher awakens a student's inner thirst for knowledge and

creates a passion for learning."
