UQ Graduate offering school/ academic support in Toowoomba and the Darling Downs and Granite Belt.

Methodology

My teaching methodology would be highly dependant on the students needs and learning style. However, in general my approach would be systematic with a combination of practical and theoretical lessons.

I personally find a varied teaching experience more fullfilling for the majority of students. For example: use of a standard text, quizzes, painting, flash cards, cartoons, field trips, etc.. etc..

Background

I am a writer (specialising in non-fiction and science communication) and wildlife biologist. I am tutoring to fund my post-graduate studies. I have tutored at UQ and have previously been employed as a learn-to-swim teacher. I possess a wealth of theoretical knowledge paired with practical experience across multiple fields.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : $20/h
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : $100
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : $200

Details

If I am required to travel greater than 40km from Toowoomba or Warwick then an additional travel fare may apply. This is open to negotiation.

Cancellation fee applies if not notified within 24hours of scheduled appointment.
