Primary School, Year 7-10 English, Year 7-10 HSIE, Year 11-12 Standard English

As an educator of more than 25 years, I have an extensive background and experience in academic support, in both school settings and as a private tutor. My background has engendered in me an understanding of the importance of making learning accessible for students according to their individual learning needs and the vital importance of empowering students to believe in and achieve their individual potential. Over the course of my teaching career, I have gained many skills in identifying, assessing and targeted programming according to the needs of students. I have a passion for literacy instruction across curriculum areas and have created and developed literacy resources for use within secondary school classrooms (for both students and teachers), as well as in individualized or small group programs where necessary and appropriate. I have considerable experience in developing and implementing a differentiated curriculum in the classroom and beyond. I believe I have a strength in developing effective working partnerships with students, parents, teachers and external providers, in the interests of achieving success in learning. I look forward to joining the Student Tutors community of learners.
