Brisbane-based qualified Maths schoolteacher and IT professional will make things clear and learnable.

Methodology

After identifying your learning goals, in line with your course requirements, and listening to you, I will set a few questions to identify what you already know and where your weaknesses are. I use a lot of questions to prompt thinking and check understanding. I can patiently revisit things as required. I also find online resources you can use in your own time to help your learning of key concepts.

If there is a Maths or programming assignment you are stuck on, I will help you and check your work.

I like to make the lessons fun, not daunting. I am really there for you or your child. Only when they succeed have I really succeeded.

Background

I've successfully taught Maths for 2 years to both primary and high schoolers, having obtained top results myself. My gift is to make complex things simple. I adjust my teaching method to preferred learning style. I can help with assignments in both Mathematics and computer programming. I understand how to motivate and engage students - I have with my daughters plus kids at school. I speak a few languages and have worked with Asian people for whom English is not their first language.

Teaching Profile

Tutored a masters of teaching student of Korean origin in 2018 to help her prepare her assignments.

Michael has successfully done short contracts teaching Mathematics, Biology and Chemistry at MacGregor State High School - also at Alexandra Hills State High and Bray Park State High.

Michael has worked with disengaged students in a number of contracts, building rapport and in some cases re-engaged them.

Michael taught General relief at Springwood, Beenleigh, Windaroo Valley, Shailer Park, Deception Bay, Ipswich State High, Tullawong, Marsden, Woodridge, Mitchelton, Murrumba State Secondary, Victoria Point and Narangba Valley State High schools, as well as several days at Brisbane Christian College.

Michael taught primary from Prep to Year 6 carefully following teacher plans at the following State Schools: Kruger Parade, Park Ridge, Fernbrooke (including 3 successful consecutive days with a tough grade 4 class), Ipswich, Deebing Heights, Flagstone, Blair, Crestmead, Goodna and Raceview. One well-known difficult student at Fernbrooke told Michael he hopes he will be his teacher in year 5, because he is the only relief teacher he got on with.

Michael first demonstrated effective behaviour management strategies while doing his first prac in lower stream Maths classes at Cavendish Road State High School, and from then on at a wide variety of primary and secondary schools, including some with a reputation as being very rough. His portfolio demonstrates a strong understanding and capability across the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers.

Michael working with a leading technology education provider - “Using Technology Better” has conducted training days in various schools around Australia doing professional development for staff using the Google Suite of Applications.

Michael is currently studying at Cert IV in TESOL.
