Former primary school teacher and literacy tutor in the Melbourne area. My primary goal is to teach children to love reading and learning in general. I believe in a fun, multi-sensory approach.

Methodology

A large part of the lesson, (particularly in the early lessons) will be spent just having a conversation and ascertaining the particular interests of a student. I will be encouraging them to share books or other reading materials they like and to tell me about them. I hope to be learning too. We will learn together. I believe strongly in helping to build their self esteem by allowing them to share some of their knowledge with me. I may share You Tube videos which may be relevant to their interests. It could be that I will encourage them to produce reading material of their own to share. I will also be seeking to ascertain their knowledge of a basic sight vocabulary and phonics. However my emphasis as far as possible will be on making learning fun.

Background

I am a registered teacher with ten plus years of teaching children in the 3-15 years age range. I have developed a particular interest in not just teaching children to read but helping them to love it. As well as classroom teaching I have helped out as a classroom assistant, where I was able to really take time to listen to young people, in order to be able to help more effectively. Bringing books to life for my students has been an important aspect of my approach. In my view reading materials should be many and varied but above all of partiular interest and relevance to individual students.
