Mornington Peninsula tutor in Creative Writing, EAL, English, Essay Writing, IELTS, Maths, Philosophy, Reading, Teacher
I travel to these locationsCranbourne, Clyde, Mornington, Mount Eliza, Lyndhurst, Lynbrook, Langwarren, Seaford, Carrum, etc
I received my “Masters in Teaching” from Melbourne university (ranked number 2 in the world for education). My expertise lie in Primary Maths and English tuition, but I am comfortable with lower High School. I pride myself in my ability to teach fundamental concepts, and in providing students the tools to perform in “NAPLAN” and “PATS” tests. I am dedicated to getting the best results for every child I work with.
I have an honours in Philosophy (specialising in metaphysics and philosophy of language). I am currently working in the education system and feel that it is letting children down. Within the classroom, as teachers we are constrained and must conform to misguided school expectations. In maths, children spend their days playing maths games, in literacy there is no focus on fundamental rules. It is unfortunate and sad, but, as it stands, it is difficult for a child to get a decent education.
Lessons run for 1 hour and involve concept development followed by the opportunity to put ideas into practice. I am available Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday afternoons from 4pm onwards.
Leading up to NAPLAN I will be running NAPLAN group sessions at Marriot Waters Family and Community Centre (Lyndhurst) and Fairhaven Family and Children's Centre (Cranbourne West). Both Math and English sessions take place on Saturdays and Sundays and run for 120 minutes. Sessions cost 90$. For Maths and Reading I focus on the types of questions your child is likely to face. As students practice questions I offer guidance on the best way to approach and solve problems. With writing I go over the NAPLAN test rubric and discuss what components of writing are necessary to ensure an optimal result. With comprehension, I cover the strategies one can use to understand texts.
You may contact me either by phone, text message, or e-mail, if you contact me by phone please do so after school hours as I will be teaching during these hoursl. I am happy to meet at your place or library in your area.

I am currently a registered teacher. I am fully aware of the Australian curriculum and have prepared numerous students for NAPLAN. Prior to arriving in Australia, I worked I worked for five years as an English IELTS tutor in Italy. In Australia I have worked as both a science and generalist teacher at various schools. I have taught the benchmarks for both the EAL and Australian literacy curriculum and Maths curriculum. Though I choose to teach primary maths I have the conceptual understanding to teach high school maths. I have been working as a tutor in a private capacity for four years.
