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.
I base my support on the development of a collaborative approach to the overall practice of developed support, a collaborative approach that builds on knowledge owned by the student being used to help build the required understandings and practices. Students develop ownership by the use of this collaborative approach.
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.
I like to work with the student and encourage their ideas, while offering guidance on the general rules and conventions of essay-writing and correct usage of the English language and grammar. I think it is important to be open and encouraging especially in the case of creative work.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
I am flexible and can adapt my lessons to my students. I believe that knowledge is power. I like to break work down and do it in steps - I believe this is the best way to learn and remember.
I believe that students learn best when they are enjoying the subject. Therefore, I strive to implement a student-based approach to my teaching by tailoring my method of information delivery or teaching strategy to better suit the student's needs and interests. Hence, I am willing to utilize a variety of mediums and creative activities to connect with the student in terms that they can understand.
Students learn best when the lessons are suited to their learning style. I work on the visual, auditory, kinesthetic system - that is do you learn best by watching, listening or doing. By understanding the student's style of learning, the ability for the student to increase their skills and knowledge is possible.
My teaching methodology is student-directed. I provide input and support as needed, but structure the lesson around each student's particular point of need. I have extensive experience working with students who need assistance with a subject of difficulty, particularly English.
I usually start with a thorough diagnostic assessment . I also like to find out what interests students have so that I can plan lessons around them individually as far as possible. If it were literacy I would usually do a Woodcock assessment. For other writing/ reading skills I would ask for an essay to look at to get me started on where "gaps" in understanding or skills lie.
Hello! My name is Christine. Originally from Tasmania, I started living and teaching in Brisbane about four years ago. Growing up, English and Chinese have been my favourite subjects and hope to help students make the most of them (or either) as well.
My teaching method is personalised learning. The pace of learning will be adjusted to each students capabilities. The learners interests will be the base of the activities in the lessons and students will have an input on how to conduct the lesson. In doing so, children will have a higher attention span and look forward to learning each week.
As a passionate and hard-working student, I thoroughly enjoyed my time at school and would love to provide academic assistance for students when possible. I am to be as articulate and logical as possible when helping others, in order to help without inducing stress.
My tutoring methodology is to: 1. find out where the gaps are, is there missing skills or knowledge? 2. design lessons to cover these gaps via backwards mapping of the curriculum 3. overall goal is to have the student interacting with the curriculum at a grade appropriate level or beyond.
My teaching method revolves around making content both relevant and engaging, thus enabling students to both connect and see a purpose in their learning. Incorporating a balanced literacy program through other areas of the curriculum is vital as it breaks down learning areas and forms a bigger picture.
