My approach to teaching depends on the subject I am teaching. For subjects that are conceptual, like law or literature, I tend to be more conversational and create analogies so that students can understand subtle points I am trying to make. For subjects that are motor based, such as guitar performance, I am methodical and drill my students to refine particular areas of their skill base.
Of course, no subject can be taught with only a single style as they will require varying skills - law and literature both require disciplined study as does musical performance require conceptual refinement. It is important that I am attuned to the needs of the student at any particular moment.
I am a Lawyer of the Supreme Court of NSW (LAW083354) recently graduated from the University of Newcastle as a Juris Doctor. Before beginning law school I worked in Disability Support as well as tutoring guitar and primary school subjects. I have a Bachelor of Music (Classical Guitar Performance) from the University of Newcastle and while studying for that degree I worked as a Learning Support Officer for the Department of Education.
I prefer to speak to new students over the phone before I accept them. I like to know that they are engaged, or can become engaged, and I also like to know what it is that is wanted from me. If I don't answer your phone call please leave a voicemail or text with your number and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
Any cancellations are uncharged if:
a) the lesson can be rearranged for a time within 3 days of the cancelled lesson, or
b) the cancellation was made more than 72 hours from the time of the lesson either in person or by phone call, voicemail and text message being insufficient.
Otherwise, cancellations are charged at the rate of the lesson, though the tutor may expressly waive or reduce this at their entire discretion.
