Mrs Julie Towndrow

 Perth - Bedford

Perth tutor in English, Maths, Reading, Special Needs

(5 student reviews)


I provide remedial maths, reading, writing and general literacy tutoring.

Key strategy used is providing a calm, non-threatening space while teaching students skills to manage themselves and their learning.

I have experience working at a Language Development Centre (students who are experiencing delays in literacy and numeracy).

I have great success in teaching students who are 'falling through the cracks' and maybe exhibiting behaviours that are not helping their learning in the classroom.

I also work with students with a diagnosed disability and students who are experiencing school anxiety.

I have 22 years involvement in the fields of foster care and adoption and my experience as a qualified Special Needs Education Assistant Level III.

Please view my website (bottom of page) for more information.



I have had over ten years experience working in primary schools, where I had daily contact with students in all the year levels - kindergarten up to Year 7. This experience has enabled me to have an excellent knowledge and understanding of what is required of students in the classroom.

I have presented at workshops for professionals working with children in out of home care, and workshops for prospective adoptive parents. I have attended seminars provided by Child Australia, Australian Childhood Foundation, and workshops provided by Adoption Research and Counselling. I have also completed online courses on trauma and the brain-body connection produced by NICABM.


Qualified and very experienced Special Needs Education Assistant Level III
Cert III and Cert IV Mount Lawley Tafe.

Extensive personal and professional knowledge and experience in engaging with, and
working successfully with, students who have experienced early childhood trauma.

"My son was 13 when he started with Julie and was struggling with blends let alone reading. We now have 2 hours a week with her and my son, now 14, who has struggled with learning since Kindy, has finally started to recognise his own improvement and feel pride in his achievement. Julie's support goes beyond the two hours with lesson plans and ideas to support and follow up her tutoring for throughout the week. Julie has excellent understanding of the learning difficulties that students can suffer and importantly has the resources, tools and training required to identify areas of learning that need to be supported. I have recommended Julie to my friends and other parents already as her passion for helping students is GREATLY appreciated by this family. "Julie is a great tutor and I would really recommend her to other people." Says my 14 yr old son. ( and if any of you KNEW my boy, you would realise how PROFOUND that statement is. :)."
