I am a parent with children who have become: a doctor,ICU nurse and a teacher. My husband and I travel extensively and have been to over 52 different countries. We are blessed with 5 grandchildren, who we enjoy baby sitting as they are young. I also love renovating, along with my husband where we have finished renovating an old house in Clovelly Park. It is one of the first houses built after the Second World War. Furthermore, my hobbies include outdoor activities, gardening and mantaining our property. I also enjoy cooking, mainly creating new dishes. I love reading and one day hope to even aspire to writing a novel! Most importantly, see this generation of young people find success; in a world that has become competitive and busy.

Experience

I am an experienced registered tutor of 25 years. My studies have given me a background in the "learning styles." I use this approach accordingly. I derive much joy working on an individual basis with my students. Results verify, and research supports that better learning takes place with individual tutoring. My students become confident, aspiring to levels that once would have been unachievable. I build their confidence. It is reassuring when I hear that students have not only improved,but are now successful at tertiary level, or in an area that they dreamt of. It is very common today for students to have private tutoring, as class sizes have increased, special needs students are no longer allowed individual assistance. My results are testimony to their successes. This is why I love what I do.

Education

My degrees and experience have enabled me to teach overseas and around Australia. I studied in Melbourne, where I trained as a Primary and Secondary teacher - BA /DipEd/Primary and Secondary. I continued my studies when I moved to Adelaide where I studied, B Ed alongwith, Post Graduate studies in Special Education, Leadership and Masters of Curriculum/Diversity in the classroom. I have been a Principal/ Deputy Principal, Head of English and Year Level Co-ordinator. I taught in both private and department schools. In fact at every level. The majority of my teaching has been predominately in secondary. Although, in 2016 I taught Yr 1 and 2 (new arrivals to Australia) with DECD (Department of Educationand Child Development). Having an overview, and experienced in all year levels I believe gave me a better insight into teaching.
