Experienced Primary Teacher With Maths Degree (Hons)
Melbourne tutor in Maths, Creative Writing
Tutor in Maths (Prep to Yr9) and English Creative Writing (Yr4-6). VIT (Victorian Institute of Teaching) Fully Registered Primary Teacher with Hons Degree in Maths (Oxford University).
I qualified as a Victorian Primary School teacher in 2011 (received Top Graduating Student Award from Monash University) and subsequently enjoyed a variety of teaching roles in Melbourne, including 3 years as a Primary Gifted Education Teacher at a highly regarded independent school. Due to family circumstances, I resigned at the end of 2016 but I missed teaching! Therefore, I decided to continue my passion for education by tutoring students in Maths and English as well as relief teaching. I have extensive experience in helping struggling children and extending capable students.
I teach Maths so students UNDERSTAND concepts, not as a set of rules to blindly follow. As a result, most of my students become expert problem solvers. I often use visual aids or manipulatives such as blocks, depending on the learning style and age of the student. It is essential for Primary students to have a solid grasp of basic mathematical concepts before starting High School, as the pace of learning increases and they start falling behind very quickly. In addition to ensuring mathematical foundations are strong, I also have an extension Maths program for very capable students.
As the Gifted Education Teacher, I developed a fun creative writing program to improve the quality of students' narratives and help them develop interesting plots. Creative writing skills are essential for VCE English.
I would love the opportunity to help your child reach their full potential. The first meeting to discuss your child's goals is free (approximately 15 minutes).
I tutor from my home in Camberwell and online using Zoom.
