I tutor students in a range of subject areas at primary, secondary, and tertiary levels, including:

  • English
  • Creative writing
  • Game design
  • Editing
  • Journalism
  • Social studies
  • History
  • Geography
  • Drama
  • Film, television, and media
  • Indigenous studies

I have had experience teaching each of these subjects in secondary classrooms, tertiary classrooms, or in one-on-one tutoring environments.

I also offer tutoring in literacy (including reading, writing, spelling, phonics, and comprehension) and study skills (including essay writing, proofreading, and referencing).

I primarily offer tutoring services in person, but can work with you online via email or Skype.

My base rate for one-on-one tutoring is $45 per hour, but varies depending on the subject area and education level. This will be discussed in our initial correspondence and is negotiable.

To determine my fees specific to your situation and my current availability, feel free to contact me via email. I'm happy to answer any questions.


"Alayna is an amazing tutor. Her commitment to assisting me become a better writer and uni student was undeniable. Her extensive knowledge in editing, text deconstruction and understanding academic vernacular made her an essential support to my academic journey. As a uni student, mother and manager I have finite time. Her flexibility with my workload and ability to draw out my very best in an efficient way saw my grades improve. Alayna' s tutoring gave me an edge, sharpening my writing and building my confidence. I would recommend Alayna to any student who want to improve their grades."
