SMALL GROUP TUITION - $35.00 PER HOUR. ALL RESOURCES AND BOOKLETS FREE.
I HAVE BEEN TEACHING FOR OVER 22 YEARS IN BOTH THE PRIMARY SCHOOL SECTOR AND ADULT EDUCATION IN ENGLISH. TEACHING HAS BEEN A PASSION OF MINE SINCE BEFORE I EVEN STARTED AT UNIVESITY AND GRADUATED. MY BELEIF IN TEACHING IS TO INSTILL CONFIDENCE IN STUDENTS AND DEVELOP THEIR CONFIDENCE IN THEIR LEARNING. ONCE THIS HAS BEEN ESTABLISH STUDENTS BECOME MORE WILLING TO LEARN AND TAKE RISKS IN THEIR LEARNING.MY TEACHING PRACTISE IS FOCUSED ON DEVELOPING THE SKILLS AND KNOWLEDGE THAT STUDENTS NEED TO EXCEL IN THEIR STUDIES.
MY EXPERTISE IS IN ENGLISH AND MATHEMATICS AND ENGLISH AS A SECOND LANGUAGE IN PARTICULAR, COMING FROM FAMILY OF MIGRANT BACKGROUND, I REALISE THE IMPORTANCE AND NECESSITY OF UNDERSTANDING A SECOND LANGUAGE AND THE DIFFICULTIES THAT COME WITH THIS. THIS WAS ONE REASON I WANTED TO FURTHER DEVELOP MY STUDIES IN ENGLISH.
LESSONS ARE FOCUSED ON ENGLISH AND MATHS AS CORE SUBJECTS. THE SESSIONS INVOLVE DEVELOPING UNDERSTING OF THE CONCEPTS COVERED IN SCHOOL ON THE SUBJECT AREA. I LIKE TO ENCOURAGE THE STUDENTS TO CHALLENGE THEMSELVES AND MOVE A LEVEL ABOVE TO WHERE THEY ARE WORKING. THIS HELPS IN UNDERSTANDINGA ND HAVING CONFIDENCE IN COMPLETING THE WORK IN THE FOLLOWING SCHOOL YEAR.
ALL WORK IS GENERATED BY MYSELF BASED ON THE AUSTRALIAN CURRIUCULUM AND THERE IS HOMEWORK GIVEN TO BE COMPLETED. NO EXTRA COST IS INVOLVED IN WORKSHEETS AND BOOKLETS GIVEN TO THE STUDENTS.

PARENTS NOTE: On meeting your child, I will ask to see any current school work and reports that you are able to show me, as well as completing my own diagnostic testing in order to gain a clear picture of your child's needs.
Through tutoring I help your child by developing learning strategies and a plan for success! I aim to get to know your child's personal style of learning in order to motivate and engage them. I will assess the student along the lines of the Australian Curriculum, ( VELS), and will report to parents regularly, focusing on the needs of the student. I aim to help your child develop their confidence and focus on content areas in Maths and English, that they may not have consolidated.
