REMEDIAL LITERACY & NUMERACY, OLNA, ACER &
SCHOOL ANXIETY

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.

"My daughter (Kelsey) was 12 when she began Maths tutoring with Julie. She was near the end of year 6 and struggling to keep up in class, often failing class Math tests and exams. We always knew she was a capable student however she had missed many important early maths concepts and lacked the confidence to 'speak up' in class and ask for help. Kelsey went to Julie once a week for just over a year and immediately the difference was measurable. Julie worked on 'filling the gaps' in Kelsey's maths knowledge while also helping her overcome the negative associations she had with this subject. She taught Kelsey strategies to recognise when she is beginning to feel anxious and how to relax and take control of these situations. I am pleased to report Kelsey is now in her first year of high school and doing extremely well. She feels very positive about her maths and has great test results, her last assessment resulting in a 92% achievement. Kelsey is now a confident learner with a healthy attitude to learning new skills in all areas of life. We went to Julie hoping for an improvement in the area of maths but we got so much more. We can't thank Julie enough for helping our daughter unlock her true potential."
