My name is Emma - I'm Australian. A mother of two children (aged 4 and 3). As a single mum I am seeking to supplement my income slightly through tutoring. I am based in Rostrevor yet I have my children at childcare in Dulwich, so I am predominantly Eastern/Centrally located.

I successfully completed SACE I and II in 2002 and proceeded to gain valuable life experience by living and working overseas from 2004 to 2009. In doing so I have developed strong communication and interpersonal skills and enjoy working with people of diverse backgrounds!

My mother has also been a teacher for 30 years, and I turn to her for support often. She has specialised in Learning Difficulties and Special Education and is now a Regional Senior Co-Ordinator for Literacy and Numeracy thus provides me with a wealth of knowledge and insight as well as invaluable resources.

Rates

Rates negotiable. I am solely seeking tutoring to gain further experience as an educator and to supplement my income whilst I study as a student/sole parent. I am happy to discuss payment one-on-one as I don't believe in taking advantage of a learner who truly needs help. As a concession-holder myself I aim to be considerate of all circumstances and demographics. Please do not feel uneasy about discussing rates with myself. I am very compassionate and naturally empathetic.

Experience

I have tutored children and adolescents who have recently migrated to Australia in ESL and basic literacy and numeracy in the past through the City of Charles Sturt Council.

I have also been an active sporting coach as well as a Girl Guide leader globally. I was also SATISFAC Best Speaker for Public Speaking and Debate during my schooling and am able to assist with both extra-curricular areas.

I have also provided ad-hoc tutoring to friends/family and hope to broaden my practical experience in formalised tutoring through opportunities that may arise via this page.

Education

I am presently half way through my 2nd year of my Bachelor of Education with Charles Darwin University - which I study externally.

I have received glowing reports for my practical placements, have police clearance, and am a dedicated student.

I excel in English and Literacy, have a passion for Science and ICT yet am overall confident in all primary curriculum areas.

I am of course highly familiar with the ACARA-based National Curriculum as I am being trained only in the most up-to-date curriculum standards and outcomes.

I am a high performer and love my studies! My GPA is above 6.0 out of 7.0 making me an above-average student. I was a High Distinction average learner in Sem I of last year and Distinction average in Sem II. I received Academic Achievement Awards as well as a scholarship in the last Academic Year and also both awards and scholarships when I completed Foundation Studies through UniSA (GPA upon completing Foundation Studies was 6.75 out of 7.0).
