Retired educator with extensive experience, provides coaching support to students of all ages.

Methodology

My teaching methodology is based on developing productive relationships with the student/s. This relationship provides a basis on which both teacher/trainer and students are seen as equal partners in the learning experience. Mutual understnding of each other is an essential backdrop to productive learing/sharing experienes.

Background

I am a retired educator who has worked in all levels of education. Recent past has involved extensive work with indigenous students both at schools and in various training environments. Qualifications include a MEd as well as Certificate IV in Training and Assessment. Students have ranged from Grade 1 to senior adult; locations have ranged from one-teacher school to managing a residential college for Indigenous students. Locations have ranged from urban schools to very remote locations. Awareness of cross-cultural issues have developd during the last 40+ years working in, or with students from, many remote locations in the NT.

Rates

Travel Fee : $20

Details

Based on previous experience there could well be need for prior research of topics covered. In this event a rate of $50.00 per contact hour would appear reasonable. Time would tell.
