Fully qualified primary teacher from the UK with experience in one of the worlds leading school curriculums

Methodology

CURRENTLY TAKING NEW CLIENTS FOR 2020
STILL SOME TIME SLOTS AVAILABLE - message for more info

Note: I can tutor your child on all areas of the national curriculum- just let me know what your child needs extra support in.

Active learning techniques are fundamental in helping your child get the most from their learning. This is achieved through activities, games etc to make learning more enjoyable. I believe learning should be responsive and based around the interest of the child. Learning should be relevant and enjoyable as this increases levels of engagement and interest in learning.

I am based in the CBD- Offer lessons at your home or the local library.

Background

I graduated with a first class honours degree in 2018 and have been working in Scotland as a primary teacher for the past year. I have recently emigrated to Australia where I am working as a casual relief teacher. I am able to deliver a 1:1 support programme to cater for your child’s specific support needs using my extensive knowledge gained from my four year teaching degree as well as my paid teaching experience with my own class as a foundation. I am more than happy to provide a reference from my principle teacher at my last school so that you can get a better idea of my teaching style.
