Experienced Primary Teacher providing Online Tailored Tutoring for K-6
NSW Central West tutor in Maths, Reading, English, General Science, Biology, Human Biology
Service areasNew South Wales
I provide quality, engaging online tutoring sessions for K-6 students in Literacy, Maths and Science. I have 17 years of experience as a primary teacher in both the UK and Sydney, Australia. This has included specialising in small group and one-to-one intervention where I created tailored programs for students who required additional support for Literacy and Maths. I am also experienced in and passionate about gifted education. I offer mentoring for gifted students based on their passions.
In my teaching roles in intervention, gifted education and in the primary classroom, I have a range of experience in working with students with disabilities including ADHD, Autism and dyslexia. My strengths are connecting with learners and engaging them in learning through interactive activities. My passions are teaching reading, Maths and Science.
I started my own online tutoring business (Homeschool Ventures) in January of 2022. I have been creating and teaching online tutoring sessions before and after school as well as providing online group workshops for homeschool students. All sessions are curriculum-linked and tailored to meet student needs and interests. My online tutoring rate is $60 per hour. I usually teach 45 minute tutorial sessions, depending on the age/stage of the student though this is agreed with parents/carers. I offer a free 30 minute introductory session via Zoom so that students can try out a session.
You can visit the Homeschool Ventures website to read the testimonials from parents of students who I have tutored so far this year ( www.homeschoolventures.com.au/reviews/ ). Many parents and students are initially hesitant about online sessions however, to date, all of the students who have taken part in the trial session, have booked in for further sessions and also continued these each term. Here are some testimonials:
"Tracy has been a fantastic tutor for our daughter. She has gone from dreading maths and thinking she wasn't that good at it, to gaining new confidence and being excited for her tutoring lesson each week. Tracy's personality is warm and cheerful and she is fabulous at developing a lovely rapport with her students. She has quickly gotten to know our child and has adapted classes to work on the areas that she needs assistance. Tracy is caring and professional and we can't recommend her enough."

"My 8-year old son has participated in Tracy’s sessions for 6 consecutive weeks now and it is the highlight of his week, every time. He sees Tracy as a mentor as opposed to a tutor. He sees Tracy because he has a real thirst for learning that is not always quenched at school. Tracy is able extend and enrich in fast pace, engaging maths and science sessions allowing his interests and curiosity to soar. Tracy’s commitment to teaching the individual is commendable. She adapts and accommodates to cater for his passions and needs. The dedicated feedback I receive helps me to understand his strengths and weaknesses. Tracy’s experience as a teacher and expertise as a gifted education educator mean she understands neurodiversity. She is patient, encouraging but above all, she connects. Any child learns and thrives when there is connection. I cannot recommend Homeschool Ventures highly enough."
