Experienced teacher with teddy bear wanting to work with 4-8 year olds

Methodology

I can help young children increase self-confidence and develop their skills to become thinkers, problem solvers, speakers, readers, and mathematicians. My teaching style is playful yet planned. I have a teddy bear named Toby and he and I have been teaching together for 30 years. He helps children feel comfortable learning from mistakes. In my lessons, I encourage students to ask and answer questions and to explain their thinking. I am very familiar with the Australian National curriculum and would feel comfortable tutoring students in English or Mathematics, up to Grade 3. I tailor lessons to meet the individual needs of each young learner.

This year I decided to return to Australia, and take some time to explore my own country and reconnect with family and friends. Due to COVID-19 I am now seeking opportunities to work form home and teach online.

Background

I am a 55 year old Australian female, and a very experienced teacher. I have been teaching young children ( aged 4-9 years) since 1986. I have a Diploma of teaching in Early Childhood, Grad. Diploma in Literacy and a TESOL certificate. I have had many years of classroom experience, teaching young children from all over the world !

Rates

Rate for online lessons : $40/h
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : $100

Details

When working with young children, due to their short attention span and their need to get up and move, I only offer 30 minute lessons ($20 Australian)
