Student feedback about Rosemary as a tutor:

"Rosemary is always prompt and fair, easy to understand - an excellent tutor. Excellent clarity and details of explanations and feedback. Excellent applicability of course content to industry." Fiona Corcoran, Copy-editing and Proofreading Course

“Rosemary Hepözden is the best tutor a student can hope for. When starting the course I was expecting a replica of my Grade 1 English teacher, but I was in for a surprise. Rosemary has a wonderful sense of humour. She was patient with my many questions and corrected my English blunders without hiding a ruler behind her back. Thank you Rosemary!” Antoinette Diedericks, Grammar for Writers Course

“Rosemary was a wonderful tutor. I appreciated her boundless patience and encouragement. Through her depth of knowledge and enthusiasm, she made a subject that can be difficult, interesting and fun; that's very hard to do! The Writers’ College was efficient, friendly and supportive.”  Karen de Waal, Grammar for Writers Course

“My tutor, Rosemary, was really prompt with clarifications, explanations and marking the assignments. She was exceptionally kind, encouraging and approachable; I didn’t hesitate, even once, in asking her for explanations. I learnt a lot, especially the minute details of punctuation and grammar.” Jaya Singh, Grammar for Writers Course

“My experience with my tutor Rosemary was excellent! Her feedback was speedy and she provided positive reinforcement along the way. She had an answer to all of my queries.” Carl Gough, Grammar for Writers


Rosemary tutors our Grammar for Writers Course, the Write a Non-fiction Book Course , the Better Writing Skills Course and the Copy-editing and Proofreading Course.
