JAMES GURR

Qualifications:

Bachelor of Secondary Education, Majoring in English, Seton Hall University

I began my teaching career as a tutor upon my return to Australia from the U.S.A, where I completed my teaching degree while attending Seton Hall University on an athletic scholarship. After focusing solely on tutoring while balancing it with my athletic career, I eventually moved into full-time teaching, initially within the public system before moving into the private system. In the five years, I spent teaching full time, I have had the privilege of working at some of Sydney’s most prestigious schools, in which I have acquired a wealth of experience and knowledge. I believe that the basics of English such as grammar, spelling, and handwriting have been neglected upon the increasing influx of technology and it is an issue which I feel compelled to be part of the solution to as these are skills that are essential in every facet of life.
