I believe that I am a great tutor not only because I am experienced, but because my goal as a tutor is to instil confidence and a belief that they can achieve success.

I understand that each student learns differently, that their needs and learning abilities are unique to them. I can adapt my explanations and communicate to ensure that your child feels confident that they have grasped a concept.

I am also able to communicate and tutor students via email.

I offer proof-reading and editing services, this means that students can email me their work and I will proof-read, edit and offer suggestions. At a high school and senior school standard, it is imperative that students communicate and present work that represents the Performance Standards.

As I am a qualified English teacher and have worked for the SACE Board, I understand and have up-to-date knowledge of the educational requirements and standards in SA.

I am available every night of the week. I have a young son at home, therefore I can tutor from 6:30pm, once my husband has come home from work. I am also available weekends. For proof-reading and editing work, I am available all day, every day of the week.

Rates

I charge $60 for individual student one-on-one tuition in Literacy from Year 6-12.
I am currently employed as a teacher and have continued with contract work with the SACE Board. I have 10 years teaching experience, graduating with a Bachelor of Education, Flinders University in 2002.
I can also proof-read and edit student work, this can be emailed to me, rather than organising an at home visit. The charge for this is $30 for 1000 word essay, $50 for a 2000 word essay, and per edit. Once the work has been received, I will return the work to the student via email, with editing and notes attached. I have received accolades for my teaching, along with unit plans that I have created being approved as the SA and NT template for Year 11 and 12 schools. Please do not hesitate to contact me for additional costs and for more information.

Experience

I have worked as a Year 6 and 7 teacher for 5 years and as a Year 11 and 12 teacher for 5 years. I have also worked as a tutor in addition to this for students in Years 5 - 12 with a range of learning abilities. I am confident that I am able to bring my experience and knowledge to ensure success for your child and to each student I teach. I am confident to assist in Literacy subjects to all age levels, but only confident to assist in Primary Mathematics. I have taught: English, Research Project, Workplace Practices, Community Studies, SOSE, Integrated Learning, Personal Learning Plan (PLP) and Primary Mathematics.
