Hi, I'm Shannessy! VERY RESPONSIVE

I'm a LaTrobe student studying Creative.


Per hour


Started uni
Hello there!

I hold a Bachelor of Creative Arts (Maj. Professional & Creative Writing) from La Trobe, and I would love to help new or struggling students improve their essay writing skills.

This includes: strengthening the structure, use of grammar, and depth of research within your essay. We can also look at strengthening your thesis, and ensuring that your argument is in alignment with your topic throughout the entire essay.

I will be able to provide the most help with an essay draft if you come to a tutoring session with specific questions prepared. You will gain more from your tutoring if you do so!

My ability to help is not limited to the subjects listed. Particularly due to the ever-evolving subjects within the English/Creative Arts sector. At the end of the day, they are more or less alike. :)

For uni students outside of La Trobe, all I will require is a subject/assessment outline in order to assist your progress.

I am happy to tutor both VCE and University students via message or in person. I am also able to help migrants/international students with their written and spoken English skills, with the intention to enhance their ability to find work.

*I have graduated with a Distinction average, and achieved High Distinctions in many individual assessments.*




Shannessy was a great tutor for me last year. I felt quite lost with a couple of subjects, but she understood where I was at and helped me get to a point where I was much more comfortable.

I'd recommend her to anyone who needs help with their writing.

I have been tutored by Shannessy quite a few times over the last two years and find her incredibly funny, friendly, passionate and hard working. Her assessments are always very high standard and she makes you feel comfortable and explains concepts really well. My work has improved a lot since working with her and would recommend her in a heartbeat to anyone who would like help with their writing.
