As an educator, I am passionate about creating a meaningful classroom environment where students are motivated to engage with the content and skills essential to become informed citizens. I want students to feel part of a safe class community where they are encouraged to express their opinions and share their ideas, to promote collaborative growth and development. I believe that bringing an open mind, positive attitude and high expectations to the classroom will provide opportunities for students to develop knowledge, skills and self-efficacy.
My industry experience as a dietitian provides me with a multitude of ideas and examples that I can bring into my classroom and synthesise into the curriculum, to promote curiosity and foster passion in my students to constantly consider the bigger picture beyond the classroom.
Overall, my combined experience in education and dietetics allows me to effectively employ appropriate teaching strategies, set clear expectations, provide meaningful feedback, encourage a dynamic classroom and liaise with parents/carers to support students in maximising their achievement.
I am an Accredited Practising Dietitian and secondary school teacher with a Bachelor of Health Sciences, Master of Dietetic Practice and Master of Teaching.
I have recently re-located to the Sunshine Coast, QLD, to be closer to my family. I am currently working as a Casual Relief Teacher at local government schools and prior to this, I taught Science, Physical Education and Health at an independent school in Geelong, Victoria. In addition to teaching, I have over 10 years of experience tutoring students of a range of academic ability levels, the following subjects: Maths, Science, Biology, Chemistry, Physical Education, Health and English.
Before pursuing a career in teaching, I worked in the healthcare industry as an Accredited Practising Dietitian.

I would recommend Zoe as a tutor to anyone. Last year she changed my attitude to high school, motivated me to achieve and helped me understand subjects that I had struggled with throughout school. She was a great tutor/mentor and encouraged me to believe that I could achieve high results if I put my mind to it.
Zoe tutored me mostly in Maths and Science, which are the main subjects that I struggled with before I found her. The great thing about Zoe was she could help me with anything! She not only helped me with the subjects that I initially started seeing her for, she would help me with any school work that needed attention at the time. If I had an English test coming up, she would help me with that or if I was struggling to understand something in humanities, she could explain things in a way that was easier for me to understand.
This year, Zoe has moved away from where I live, however, we have started lessons over Zoom and they are just as great as in person.
Zoe tutored me in VCE Health, Physical Education and Biology last year. She was very approachable and she explained science concepts in a clear way that I could understand. Zoe used a variety of different methods to teach me including some great videos, drawings, written examples and practice exam questions. It also really helped that she was a teacher and understood exactly what I needed to know for my SACS (tests) and exams).
I would recommend Zoe to anyone who may be struggling to understand concepts in class and needs information to be taught in a more clear and easy-to understand way. I wish I had found her earlier in my schooling.
Zoe is an excellent tutor. She explains difficult concepts clearly and concisely. She has helped me so much!!! I highly recommend Zoe as a tutor.
I would 100% recommend Zoe to anyone needing help with science! I have always struggled with science in school but since Zoe has started helping me she makes it not only easy to understand but also really fun! I’ve gone from absolutely hating science to it being one of my favourite subjects.
