Melbourne tutor in Maths, Creative Writing
VIT (Victorian Institute of Teaching) Fully Registered Primary Teacher with Hons Degree in Maths (Oxford University). Camberwell-based Tutor in Maths (Prep to Yr10) and English Creative Writing (Yr4-6). Atar equivalent (English A-levels) high enough to gain entry to medicine.
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. 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. I am equally happy helping struggling children or extending capable students. I design an individual program for each student after discussing their goals and considering their strengths and weaknesses.
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 of the student.
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 tutor from my home in Camberwell.
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 20 minutes). This will be followed by a shortened teaching session of 40 minutes for $30.
