Mature, qualified Secondary School Teacher offers skills in English expression, grammar, all types of essay writing and text analysis at VCE level.

Methodology

I also like to teach story from a novel analyzing the text using film and other media, i like variety in teaching methods and enjoy co designing tasks and assessments with the student/s themselves.

This could be using the setting of the story to compare other like stories and how this influences the characters and plot. Where possible I like to relate the story to the student/s experience.

It is important for the student to understand Assessment criteria for tasks and this is clarified from the start.

I am a stickler for correct grammar and encourage students to spend time on these skills for the clarity of expression.

I teach students sound methods for the construction of argumentative, persuasive and narrative essays and general writing for different purposes and audiences including resumes and job applications.



Background

Hi, i am a qualified teacher with more than 10 years in a variety of schools in Victoria teaching English and humanities, Religious education (In Catholic schools), health, art and psychology. I have recently qualified with a Master of Social Work and this complements my focus on the development of the whole person. I have a special interest in holistic health and personal development.
Some of my own interests include going to the gym, photographing nature and Life drawing. I also love reading novels by Australian authors like Kate Grenville, Peter Carey, Tim Winton, Geraldine Brooks and Sonya Hartnett.

Fiona's CV

Relevant work experience for the position of tutor includes recent study in Social Work. As part of my academic study, i worked in agencies with young people experiencing mental health and complex issues that caused a disengagement with study.


I now have a very good understanding of socioeconomic disadvantage and how this can impact a person's capacity to participate in education and employment and how to work with the young person's strengths for them to achieve their goals.

I practiced holistically while appreciating the contribution the social context and individual circumstances to the young person's current situation and tailoring the program to accommodate needs where possible.
I have a background in art and drawing and this complement skills in English.
