I travel to these locationsSouth Eastern Suburbs
I am passionate about teaching and have a deep knowledge of the psychology of learning and of teaching strategies. I love helping people and get great satisfaction from seeing my students progress through tutoring. I have trained other teachers in successful ways to teach Mathematics and am driven to succeed in my teaching and tutoring. I believe that building a positive relationship with students is a key to successful tutoring.
Outside of teaching/tutoring I am a passionate sportsperson, currently into endurance triathlons. I love travel, books & exploring new places. I am a life-long learner & currently am studying a Master of Instructional Leadership as well as various sport coaching certifications.
I have tutored for 7 years and am in my 10th year of teaching. I've taught in independent and government schools across Victoria. Currently I am studying a Master of Instructional Leadership and this is my strength: I know exactly how to make tutoring effective for students. Depending on student need and want, tutoring sessions can be like a 1-1 lesson, can work through or apply particular knowledge or can focus on particular work or assignments. I have tutored Maths for Years 1-11 and VCE Phys Ed (Unit 3-4).
All of my students have seen significant improvements. I understand that the best student progress comes from support and communication from the parent, school and tutor, and I work to open and maintain these lines of communication. I tailor my sessions to students' backgrounds and life experiences with real examples and problem-solving tasks so that they can see the relevance of learning tasks to 'real' life. Depending on students' interests and needs I use a continuum of 'abstraction' to help students to understand concepts at a more theoretical level, whilst regularly linking this to more practical examples.
