I keep trying different methods until I find a window of learning that works for the individual student. My preferred approach is to build a trusting relationship rapport with the student as a person, leading to rapport. Any child can learn when they feel safe, relaxed and motivated.
Qualified Teacher Assistant specializing in students with autism. I can tutor any Primary Level subject the individual student may find challenging, plus science and musical instruments (recorder, saxophone, flute). I can teach English or Spanish as second language. Decades of experience working with children, both overseas and in Australia.
Rates are negotiable. For longer travel distances I might need to ask a contribution to fuel expenses. Most important is that the student wants to learn, and my work has the support of the parents/ carers. Making a difference is more important to me than making money.
