Years 5 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 broad range of literary and non-literary issues.

Every week all students get their homework marked and scored offering highly detailed feedback. In this way students can identify their strengths and areas for improvement, which is crucial for their development towards English proficiency.

Weekly homework provides students with detailed feedback and enables teachers to create a comprehensive understanding of each student’s progress, which is reflected in annual reports as well.

Teachers and students have ongoing discussion in the class that includes both questions and contributions from students as well as questions & answers between the teacher and the students.

All you need is the Zoom Application.
