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

Rate for a 1-hour lesson : $30/h

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!!
