Australian/British qualified teacher with many years of international experience at highly regarded schools, available for reading/writing/literacy support. Also keen to teach Math at primary levels.

Methodology

My methodology is largely inquiry-based, supported by strong knowledge and understanding of traditional educational practices. ( Though I promote and facilitate personal expression, I value accuracy of grammar and spelling.) I make use of formative assessment throughout the learning process. I have extensive experience of the reading/writing workshop methodologies and incorporate digital technology in the compiling of, and presentation of work.
