I like to get back to the basics and build from there. I am dedicated, easy-going, friendly and love to see my students succeeding and gaining greater confidence.
I have 35 years experience as a primary school teacher working with students from kinder to year 10. My particular focus has been working with students requiring literacy support (reading, spelling, writing, speaking), students with disabilities and students and adults who have English as an additional language.

I have known Kerryn for over 10 years. For over 7 years she would tutor me every week. She is an amazing teacher that understands your learning style.
I was diagnosed with two different types of dyslexia as a child. I could not read or write!
Having Kerryn as my tutor was one of the best things I ever did! She had the patience and dedication to meet me where I was at and support me.
She is the reason why I am able to read and write today. She is the reason why I went from the bottom of my classes to the top of my classes! She gave me the confidence to be able to strive for the best results in my learning through school. She has a vast knowledge as well as skills to help people reach their full potential.
I could not recommend Kerryn enough! She absolutely changed my life and I would not have been able to achieve what I have today without her!
Thank you so much Kerryn!
Kerryn is a kid-friendly, highly experienced teacher of primary school students. She is a versatile teacher, competent to teach ESOL ( English for Speakers of Other Languages), as well as literacy for native speakers of English who are behind their grade level. She also teaches Special Education for those who are seriously challenged with the basics of math, reading and writing. She is faithfully committed to her students.
I heartily recommend Kerryn to you. My hearing deficit twins age 6, went from no skill at all to swimming strokes with correct breathing technique in less than 12 weeks. Kerryn is patient but firm and knows when to give a child a break or encouragement to continue. I really appreciated her balanced approach.
Kerryn is a kind and sincere lady devoted to all her students. She is an experienced teacher who always gives one hundred percent Kerryn make sure that she is supportive to her students and she is very patient .
She politely taught me how to communicate in English. And, she became my adviser when I was in trouble in Australia. Thanks to her, my experience in Australia has become my treasure!
Kerryn tutored me when I was in year 9 & 10 and self conscious about needing extra support. Literacy was never my strong point and she was able to provide me with the support and tutoring in a sensitive way to ensure it was a positive and successful experience. Kerryn gave me lots of encouragement and reassurance that I needed to gain the confidence to build and further my literacy skills, particularly reading.
I would recommend Kerryn without any hesitation. She worked with my daughter for 7 years and during this time she displayed and demonstrated not only skill, but also kindness, compassion, honesty and patience. Kerryn was able to adapt her teaching techniques to work with the learning style of my daughter and the individual learning styles of the other children she was working with. The relationship that grew between my daughter and Kerryn is something that will never be forgotten and will be always valued.
I have worked with Kerryn for thirteen years at Creek Street Christian College, Bendigo. She can offer many years of experience teaching primary and secondary aged students. Kerryn is gifted at teaching and supporting students who find mainstream education challenging, and has a genuine desire to encourage and equip these students with the skills and positive attitude they need to make their way in the world. I personally have worked in the support teaching area with Kerryn, and always found her expertise and manner with the students very helpful. I have no hesitation in recommending Kerryn to any teaching position.
