Mrs Julie Towndrow

 Perth - Bedford

Perth tutor in English, Maths, Reading, Special Needs

(4 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.


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.

"I cannot recommend Julie enough for everything that she has done for our daughter Izzy. Since we started our sessions, Izzy's confidence has grown, Julie has taught her coping strategies to deal with her anxiety in and out of class, she can focus more clearly and her writing has improved dramatically. Devastated to be moving towns or we would continue to use Julie for the rest of Izzy's primary school years. The best part - SHE LOVES TO GO! Izzy asks to go see Julie even when it's not time for a session. That in itself is priceless."
