Recently retired English teacher with 30 years experience in helping VCE students achieve their best.

Methodology

My teaching method involves helping students to develop an understanding of the essential skills involved in reading and responding to literary and everyday texts. I believe that understanding what is required for success is the first step towards being able to produce the sort of written and oral analysis at senior levels. My teaching breaks the tasks down into essential skills and provides structured approaches to writing successful responses that will satisfy all of the criteria. I believe it is possible to unlock your hidden talents and show you how to create high quality work. You will need to work hard and be determined to improve. Success does not come easily but it is within the each of every student to achieve their individual goals.

Background

I have been a senior English teacher in Independent and Catholic schools for 30 years. I have held senior positions including Director of Teaching and Learning and Deputy Principal. I have helped students understand how to study senior English efficiently to achieve their full potential. I teach well-developed approaches to studying all aspects of VCE and Year 10 English that explicitly target and develop the key skills and knowledge required by VCAA. I have also taught VCE EAL in China and understand the needs of students whose first language is not English.
