I have been a Teacher of Secondary English and History for more than 25 years and I love working with teenage students to help them achieve their potential; students who are Gifted & Talented and want to push further through to students who find English a most challenging and complex subject.
Based centrally in Mt Pleasant, I offer after-school hours throughout the week and also "time-tabled free" school times and weekend hours to senior and mature-
I work predominantly with Senior students in Years 11 and 12.
My lessons are tailored to each student and their needs, what they are concentrating on at school at the time and how their Assessment Task schedule is arranged. I offer a wide variety of personalised worksheets, text books and current web material to supplement their school texts.
Most importantly, all materials are tailored exactly to the needs of each student and what they need.
Students are offered SMS and email access as required, including the marking or editing of written work beyond weekly tutoring sessions.
I enjoy working with all ability levels of students, finding their differing needs an ongoing but most enjoyable challenge. I have worked with many students from Years 7 through to Year 12, enrolled in all English levels and work well with students who are experiencing difficulty with the subject, through to English Extension 1 and English Extension 2 in Year 12. I do work predominantly with Senior students preparing for the HSC.
Although my specialty area is English, I am qualified and have taught Modern and Ancient History and am more than happy and able to tutor in these subjects also.
I have also taught and tutor Studies of Religion through to Year 12 (SOR 1 & 2).
Essay Writing (developing and improving skills) for any subject is also available.
