I’m Elize Strydom and I live in Byron Bay. I completed a Bachelor of Arts in 2005 and then began working as a radio journalist and freelance photographer. I worked with the Australian Broadcasting Corporation for eight years, writing and reading national news. In 2017, I decided to make a career change and began working as an educator with a primary school before and after school care organisation in Sydney. I’m now studying a Master of Teaching (Secondary) at Southern Cross University and English is my Key Learning Area. In my work as a documentary photographer, I’ve travelled extensively and learnt a lot about the fascinating world we live in. I want to share my knowledge and experience, as well as my passion for ideas and information, with people of all ages. As a tutor, I take the time to get to know students and how they learn before applying evidence-based teaching strategies to help them make positive learning gains and achieve their goals. I’m committed to giving students the opportunity to grow and learn in a safe, fun and supportive environment.
