(1 student review)

I have over 40 years experience as a teacher/tutor in a variety of areas- primary school subjects (including music and art), Reading Recovery, voice, theatrical production and adult literacy. I have VIT registration. Additionally, I am a trained Life Coach with expertise in areas of personal development. I currently mentor vulnerable students in the secondary system and enjoy assisting people of all ages to reach their potential. I also have a particular interest in helping mature age students who are returning to study after a long period away and may be having difficulty with confidence, organising their time and writing essays.

I offer tutoring in Primary and Secondary English (literature, language analysis, reading, writing, spelling, grammar), Primary Maths, essay writing for secondary and tertiary students, ESL, Adult Literacy and coaching in personal development. I will provide worksheets and notes appropriate for the student's needs.

One hour sessions will include review of previous work, explicitly stated goals and expectations, new instruction designed for the student's current level of achievement, assessment of understanding and the setting of follow up activities.

I have availability on week days (Monday to Thursday) during the day, after school hours and occasionally at other times. My preference is to work from my home in Mooroolbark but I will travel to other Eastern suburb locations if necessary.



I am an expert teacher, performer and life coach with over 40 years experience in a
wide range of subject areas.

"I am very grateful for the guidance and assistance Janice has given me throughout my studies. I really appreciate Janice taking the time to give me plenty of individual attention. Janice has provided me with detailed instructions, constructive feedbacks, and warm encouragements. At first, Jan arranged a long phone conversation to give me comprehensive instructions on my essay requirements, detailed explanation on how to do the assignment, and kind responses to my personal concerns. We then met with Janice and she helped with understanding the essay question, structure, grammar and how to keep within the word limits. When I sent an email inquiry, Janice's reply was prompt, detailed and helpful. I highly recommend Janice. Your feedbacks on my assignments were thorough, encouraging, insightful, and constructive. At the end of the last term, I encountered some personal struggles with the course. You talked to me over the phone for more than an hour to counsel me, encourage me, and give me hope and confidence."
