My name is Lauren and I have been a Primary school teacher for 30 years, ten of these years as a Lead teacher.I have worked in private schools in Sydney, Wollongong and Northern New South Wales .

I am currently completing a Bachelor of Visual Arts at Sydney University and for the past few years I have been tutoring students after school, in my home, with much success . I am located in Leichhardt.
I always endeavour to work as a team with both my students and their parents, helping to set achievable goals together.

My first priority for your child is to build confidence.It is my belief that by feeling supported in their learning , children will not feel afraid to ask questions or seek clarification (which may sometimes feel overwhelming in a classroom situation ). I generally do not use online learning, unless necessary to improve an outcome. It is a one to one session, either focussing on the basics, filling in gaps or conversely, extension work. My aim is always to help your child reach their potential.

As mentioned before, use my first sessions to assess where the gaps may be or where extension may occur. Once I ascertain your child's immediate needs, I will embark upon an individualised programme and give you regular, detailed updates. I am also happy to prepare students for NAPLAN.
My students are happy to come! I am very approachable and I mix up the session activities to alleviate any chance of boredom :).
I am able to conduct English sessions on zoom, depending on the student's needs.
I have a current Working with Children Check and have had a double vaccination.

I have opened up a few new booking times for 2022.
Looking forward to hearing from you!
Best, Lauren

Visual Arts (Introduction)

"Our daughter Emilie is going into Yr 6 and with 2020 and 2021 providing challenges with consistent attendance at school due to Covid restrictions, we turned to Lauren to help tutor Emilie in Maths. The first improvement we noticed virtually right away was confidence. Emilie often said she was no good at Maths and in many cases, simply did not try as she did not think she could correctly answer the questions. But after only a few sessions with Lauren, we noticed our daughter's confidence had dramatically improved. We have been seeing Lauren now since the beginning of 2021 and very happy with the results. Our daughter now has a high level of confidence and also the speed in which she correcly answers both basic and more challenging questions involving addition, subtraction, division and multiplication has noticeably improved. Emilie is a visual learner and Lauren accommodates this learning style very well. As a very experienced primary teacher, we know that Lauren will tailor the sessions to suit Emilie's learning needs while always covering off the school curriculum appropriate for her school year. Lauren is always enthusiastic and greets Emilie with a lovely warm smile and our daughter enjoys going to see Lauren every week at a time that suits our family. We are looking forward to returning to see Lauren after these school holidays and seeing further improvement with our daughter."
