Able to draw on years of teaching experience, my tutoring approach is all about the individual - not just marks and grades, but also building up confidence that may have become completely squashed with each disappointing mark, each negative piece of feedback, each time no real guidance to improve has been offered. Helping build confidence and empowering students can often be half the battle won; better marks usually follow as well :)
I begin by working with the student to see where they are with their skills and knowledge, then build a tutoring program from there, one that works alongside their school English program so they don't get confused.
I make sure that the work we do is varied in terms of activities, that we build from basic understandings through to more complex ones, and I'm there outside of tutoring sessions to offer assistance and guidance in ATAR English or Lit via email or online meeting.
In high school, I failed Maths and struggled terribly with chemistry. I know what it's like, first hand, to feel all at sea with a subject, to feel like i was really bad at it, and this means I bring empathy and compassion into the tutoring experience.
I've been an English teacher for over 20 years, during which time I've been a Head of English and an examination marker.
I have not only taught in both the government and elite private school sectors here in Perth but also the owner of an independent tutoring business. I love the one-on-one teaching and learning experiences I get from tutoring and am excited to be able to focus on that now!
