My number one focus point is encouragement; I am committed to making sure a student knows when their efforts are valued and encouraging them to excel while making sure to celebrate their successes.
Flexibility and patience are also important to me: I love finding the right way to explain a particular concept to an individual student as each student learns differently. I see it as a puzzle to be solved if my initial explanation isn't sufficient and I try different methods. The longer I spend with a student, the easier it is for me to explain things 'their' way the first time.
PASS taught me the benefits for students in teaching them how to teach themselves; encouraging them to find their own answers and research is very rewarding (and is essential for older students preparing for university).
I am a recent graduate of a Bachelor of Arts in English & Creative Writing and Performing Arts.
I was a Peer Assisted Study Sessions (PASS) Leader at UniSA for the duration of my degree.
I was an ensemble member Improvisation troupe 'Impro Mafia' in QLD for several years.
I have consistently achieved high grades in Drama subjects in secondary and tertiary education.
I am passionate about drama and story telling.
If I am traveling 20-30km an additional $5 per lesson applies.
