Reading and writing teacher of Western Sydney who has worked in Oxford with skills in teaching struggling readers and writers (especially boys!) who also writes her own text books.

Methodology

My lessons are really simple:

Reading texts, comprehending them, then answering questions and writing about them. Nice and basic lessons to build the most important skills of English, literature, reading and writing. I also build confidence and self-esteem in my students.

Background

I have been teaching since I was 14 (18 years!)
I have had hundreds of students over the years.
My country and male students have flourished the most under my teachings. Many have learned to read well under my teaching, and go on to gain marks in other subjects because of the confidence I have built in them.
