Years 4 English Tutoring

Preliminary note

In ALL courses students receive weekly homework that is marked in detail and returned promptly to enable them to understand their strengths as well as areas of improvement. This is a vital aspect of their progress.

It is important for students to expand their personal vocabulary in order to enrich the range of their expression both written and oral, therefore vocabulary extension and testing continues throughout the year in all classes.

Very inspiring and intensive classes which have helped my 11 year old son make great progress in his writing and reading. Ken Mcdonald’s class is an effective and neccessary supplement to my kid’s day-school learning where hardly any intensive reading is done.

Mr McDonald's classes are extremely informative, teaching us not only writing and reading skills but also weaving general knowledge into our learning. I've learnt so much from these classes and the feedback in our homework, which has helped me at school and in many other activities as well. I highly recommend it!

I was over the moon when I received James Ruse’s offer. Thank you sooooo much, Mr. McDonald, for all your help! I have improved so much in reading comprehension, and I started to love literature so much. You not only teach us literature but also help building our value system which is more important than academy. I always feel very lucky from the bottom of my heart to be your student. Strongly recommended to all of you who want to improve your English.


All English skills will be improved through the study of a wide variety of literary, non-literary and multi-media material.

All students are given homework every week which is expertly marked with very detailed editing and comments along with a final score. This enables students to understand their strengths as well as any potential weaknesses, guiding them towards mastery in English.

Weekly homework gives students in-depth feedback and allows teachers to build a complete profile of each student’s development. Feedback is also given in yearly reports.

All classes involve continuous dialogue between the teacher and students via questions and answers, as well as student motivated questions and contributions. Students are encouraged to actively participate in their learning.

All you need is the Zoom Application.
