I like to begin by breaking down the task. All too often many students struggle with achieving well due to not understanding what it is they're supposed to be doing in their assignments. This is not helped by wordy task sheets which have phrases like "discerning analysis of the topic".
My lessons are student-focused, such that the material and delivery are designed in relation to my students' individual needs. I seek to use a variety of materials and media to enhance and enrich the learning experience. Most importantly, I seek to develop close relationships with my students so that learning is relaxed, enjoyable and rewarding.
My teaching method is based on the student's particular interests. I believe teaching can be done in many ways. My primary way of teaching is to start off with spelling and reading. The key to becoming a great essay or story writer is for your words to flow effortlessly. With my guidance and encouragement, any student with a passion or goal will be on their way to achieving it.
I specialise in Essay writing (particularly for high school) and general grammar editing of any written work. I excel at writing and achieved 100% in all my Year 12 assessments by learning a few simple ways to write and structure an essay effectively.
Each child is different and I find their strengths and weekness and help them build on it. I help children in English by reading novels like Matilda (Roald Dahl) and understand what they are reading by doing activities. I also assist with writing stories based on novels. In Maths, I work through the year level curriculum such as worded problems, algebra, geometry, measurements etc.
My teaching method comprises of all the means to make the student understand the best of the subject. I start by making them understand the concept and then ask to practice and learn along with me teaching them the base and final outcome.
I approach tutoring by following my student's class homework and assessment schedules, then expanding to offer more advanced exercises and tests as required by the student. I offer comprehensive tutoring with a warm and encouraging approach, and am able to tailor each lesson to suit the student's preferred learning style.
My lessons are aimed towards High School kids, and University students. I like to gauge my students before I plan a strict lesson. I believe every student learns differently and I am passionate about creating a lesson which is perfect for my student. I aim to create a safe, fun, and compassionate work environment that aids students in reaching their full potential.
I provide a safe and supportive learning environment for my students through building positive relationships as well as teaching engaging and enjoyable lessons. Along with my seven years of classroom teacher experience I have also completed over 100 hours of professional development and therefore can draw on a number of different strategies depending on the students learning style learning needs.
Within my pedagogy I implement...
I live ten minutes walk from Cavendish Road State High School. I prefer to tutor at my place however, I am open to traveling short distances to a student's preferred location. I can also tutor at UQ St Lucia if that suits the student.
I teach by constantly readjusting my teaching style to the individualistic needs of the student. Whether they learn visually, hands-on or through theory I will provide suitable stimuli to improve their results and abilities. I can easily do mathematical sums in my head and am good at making up example questions.
I teach using a hands on, inquiry method to get students thinking about the 'why' behind their studies. I also use regular movement breaks as studies have shown this technique to be effective, particularly when working with younger children. I help students to gain the confidence they need to achieve success in their examinations and in regular classroom settings.
My lessons are almost always tailored to meet the needs of my students. This only changes with regards to group learning, where individual needs are taken into account, but cannot be prioritised due to numbers. However, I like to encourage my students to enjoy their learning and remove the fear and shame from the learning process.
My teaching method is to help the student understand the practicality of language and make learning a fun session without any boredom. Learning should always be simple and interesting to a child and that is what my philosophy about teaching is.
I am a nurturing tutor, however, I don't like excuses, a growth mindset is a must in my lessons. Nothing is impossible and my lessons are geared towards those who would like to realise their potential in a safe and fun environment where you will be challenged and valued for your effort. If you are prepared to put the work in, you will reap greater rewards.
I am an experienced teacher and Educational Doctoral student with the time to spend one to one to ensure your child achieves to their potential at school. If it is a lack of basics holding them back, I can fill those gaps! If they are not being extended, I can help them grow and develop new skills and attitudes. I can help edit and refine any item of written work for most purposes.
I believe that every child is unique hence the one size fits all method cannot be applied. I centre my lessons around the student themselves and operate within their strength zone but outside of their comfort zone. I believe in constant improvement hence my teaching method involves using their strengths to improve their weaknesses.
When teaching, I focus on three key things in every lesson: establishing a growth mindset, effectively differentiating for each student, and ensuring my students feel valued. A growth mindset is when a student moves from saying "I can't" to saying "I can't yet". I work with every student to ensure they feel capable of improving, even if it's their least favourite subject.
I am passionate about student-centred learning. I believe in the intelligence of every person and work with people's strengths. I understand that learning environments are not always set-up to work well for everyone's learning needs.
My teaching method is based on positive reinforcement and encouragement paired with practical assistance and proven study strategies. My aim is to provide guidance, increase students' sense of accomplishment and overall capability, provide structure to study activities and keep learning tasks engaging in order to unlock potential.
Since Creative Writing, I believe, should be more enjoyed than learnt, I base most of my lessons on interesting articles to read and the context that drives such writing. Following a thorough discussion, I also give creative assignments such as essays, poems and plays to write, so students can have their own little taste of writing.
My teaching method is one on one tutoring/ video chat (skype or other) or via email. I can answer any specific questions on writing essays, English literature periods/writers and/or help to analyse texts. I can help edit drafts for English assignments or give information regarding any inquiry about certain poets and time periods throughout English history.
I can guarantee that my lessons will cater to your ability in addition to being engaging. I value reflective practice, am determined to provide the most suitable methodology to your needs and approach every lesson with clear, structured activities.
I am outgoing, friendly lessons were for students years behind in education. I have rarely had to structure a lesson plan that was the teachers job. Teaching methods - simplicity promotes understanding.
My teaching philosophy is centred on understanding. My belief is that if a student has the proper groundwork in place, they can achieve anything! Hence, my focus tends not to be on just completing a specific assignment or essay but on a deeper comprehension of texts and questions.
My teaching method is based around breaking things down, whether it's deconstructing texts to find their themes and the literary devices that are used to show these themes, or breaking down a huge topic into key ideas that can become topic sentences in an essay.
It would be effective to teach English based on their needs. With communicative approach, I facilitate their learning by putting them in the real situation. For example, brainstorming on things around the topic: transportation, street direction, length of time, etc.
I wish to tutor high school students in all year levels in English, Modern History, Religion, and Arts, and year 7-10 students in Mathematics and Science. I have studied Speech and Drama, and Music for many years, and have completed several examinations (both Trinity Guildhall and AMEB).
I am organised, patient and dedicated to teaching children. I am interested in helping your child in any areas of schooling that they need assistance with.
