Experienced Primary Teacher giving Maths and English lessons to Primary school students in Adelaide

Methodology

I've always been a very personable teacher, one who is very approachable and easy to get along with. Students can be relaxed in my presence and they shouldn't feel pressured or anxious about making mistakes. We all make mistakes and that's how we learn and improve.

Background

I have been a Primary Teacher for 25 years of which 22 years were spent at St Michaels College. I have taught in a range of DECD schools for the other 3 years teaching boys and girls to be their best. The majority of my time has been spent with students in the middle or upper primary (Years 4-7). I currently work with my daughter who is in Year 9.

Rates

Darren's CV

I have a Bachelor of Primary Teaching.
2017 Relief Teaching in DECD schools in Western Adelaide area
1995 - 2016 Primary Teacher at St Michaels College
Maths and English have always been my favourite subjects to teach. There have always been many resources to help make teaching these subjects interesting and relevant for the future. I enjoy helping students achieve success in these subject areas.
I majored in Physical Education and absolutely love most sports. I have coached many sports, have an AFL Level 1 Coaching certificate, I've umpired, played and just about done everything in football. I support the mighty Power in the AFL, but also love watching Adelaide United in soccer, the 36ers in basketball, Adelaide Strikers in cricket and of course I support my children in everything they do.

Brayden

Was taught by Darren and felt very comfortable when approaching new concepts. Many approaches of teaching were used especially in Maths until I fully understood the work. Overall a very approachable and fun teacher that many students would love to be taught by. Also supports the mighty power and loves to chat about footy after class!!

I taught with Darren for 10+ years. Darren is an engaging and knowledgeable teacher, down to earth and will work hard to motivate the most reluctant learners.

Brenton

I’ve had the privilege of knowing Darren for many years as he has assisted us with some private tutoring and advice for our children over that period. Darren has been a reliable and honest person to deal with and we can highly recommend Darren for any tutoring needs. Brenton, Newton SA.

Darren gave my daughter some tutoring to bring her maths and english skills up to where they should be. He demonstrated patience and was able to relate to an 8 year old, with his kind and friendly manner. His many years of teaching experience were obvious. I am grateful for the help that he has given my daughter - she's a much more confident student now.

You might be wondering how can I somebody who has never been in Darrens classroom or seen how he teaches can recommend him for your child. Well its easy, every child, now some adults who i have met and realised i was Darrens brother have honestly told me that he was their best teacher ever. That must mean something.
