I am an experienced primary school teacher who has taught students from Reception to Year 6. My philosophy is that in order to teach a person, you must first understand them as a learner, and cater learning experiences to their abilities. I believe strongly in building growth mindsets in all learners. My teaching experience has largely been in primary schools, however I have tutoring experience with adults and children of all ages. In addition, I worked in Japan for 3 years as an Assistant Language Teacher responsible for planning and delivering lessons to students from pre-school to high school. I have intermediate level Japanese.
My favourite areas to teach are: - Reading (Decoding and Fluency)
- Reading comprehension
- Essay Writing
- Creative writing - Primary Mathematics
- Primary Science (Biology, Chemistry, Physics)
- Social Studies
I look forward to hearing from you.
For the past 5 years I have been employed as a full-time primary school teacher. During that time, I taught students in years Reception-6, as well as specialty STEM teaching. I am currently registered to teach in both Victoria and South Australia and hold a current Working with Children's Check in both states. Prior to my employment as a primary teacher in Australia, I worked for 3 years as an Assistant Language Teacher in Japan. In Japan I conducted tutoring sessions for both children and adults, in addition to normal classroom teaching.
I am passionate about educating people, with a focus on determining the best approach based on individual student needs. I quickly build rapport with children of all ages, and enjoy sparking intrinsic motivation and a love of learning in all students. I am punctual, polite, and receptive to feedback.
