Does your child need a confidence boost and assistance in literacy and/or numeracy at the K-6 level? Would your child (years 1 or 2) have been a candidate for Reading Recovery at school if it was still available?
I am a retired K-6 teacher with over 30 years, specialising in developing confidence, literacy and numeracy skills and understandings in students aged 5-12 years who may have missed out on fully grasping the basics of reading, writing and spelling and mathematics or haven't quite got all the strategies working together. I develop individual learning programs for all students to take the stress out of learning so that they learn quickly, in a relaxed environment. I believe that confidence and happiness lead, success and progress follow. My program consists of: A brief parent meeting and a questionnaire to be completed by parents. During this meeting we discuss your concerns and the challenges, as you see them, of your child in literacy and/or numeracy. First tutoring session: this is an individual student assessment session so that your child and I can get to know each other and I can assess where your child is experiencing success and challenges. To develop a comprehensive and wholistic learning program for your child, I assess, where applicable:
Confidence and self-esteem
Beliefs around their abilities and attitudes to school and learning
Concepts about print
Phonemic awareness
Phonics knowledge and Spelling
Reading level and Comprehension
Expressive and Receptive language skills
Writing skills, including handwriting
Numeracy skills and understandings
My sessions are usually one hour in length. I am available Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday after school hours. Times are negotiable and subject to availability. Tutoring is carried out in my home in Horsley (Dapto). Parents are welcome to stay for the session.
All resources are provided.
Home readers from school are helpful for students, particularly years 1-2 who are finding reading strategies a challenge.
Fees are $45 per one hour session.




I have taught literacy in schools as a reading recovery teacher (1 to 1 program) and both literacy and numeracy (as well as all other K-6 subjects) as a classroom teacher and as a teacher of students with special needs. As a specialist in literacy, I have taught over 2,230 hours.
