Mr Sam Turner

 Ballarat - Canadian

Literacy and Numeracy Educator - 11 Years Experience

Ballarat tutor in Creative Writing, EAL, English, English Literature, Further Maths, Geometry, Maths, Maths Methods, Philosophy, Reading, Statistics


I have taught in schools in London and Ballarat for 11 years and provided tutoring in numeracy and literacy on evenings and weekends for the purposes of maximising academic achievement and building exam readiness. I am an enthusiastic and engaging educator with a wide variety of teaching tools to suit the needs of all learners in literacy, numeracy and, in the later years, philosophy.

I am currently a leading teacher working across all years of a P-8 college and have extensive experience in the primary grades and beyond. I have coached many students through standardised tests with the highest levels of success and supported many others to close the achievement gap between themselves and their peers. Learning is my life's passion and tutoring enables me to pursue this outside of school hours.

My approach to tutoring is flexible and responsive to student needs. I assess briefly and accurately, before teaching intensively to the areas in need of attention, whilst maintaining student engagement and wellbeing.

I have full registration with the Victorian Institute of Teaching and a current Working with Children Check. I can offering tutoring services in your own home on evenings and weekends.

Please feel free to contact me with any enquiries at the email or mobile number below.
