Experienced Teacher for Maths, Science, Psychology and English (EAL)
Teaching Experience for Mathematics

I am a fulltime teacher in the local area and have been teaching for 4 years. I loved maths at school and have always been a high achiever. When completing my Master's in Teaching, I further refined my knowledge and skills in teaching Numeracy. I specialize in General math and Maths Methods but have had experience teaching maths to students Year 4 to 12.
Before I became a teacher, I tutored students for 6 years, some of whom were failing Math but then were able to achieve a 74% or higher in Year 12. My students have got into Nursing, and Law in the top 5 universities because of that. I still get a referral from teachers from my former student's school for those who are struggling.

Teaching Experience for English Standard

I have been tutoring EAL/ ESL students for 6 years prior to becoming a fulltime teacher. I made my own resources and used my own experience of learning 5 other languages to guide my teaching. Currently, I run the Reading Recovery Program at my school. In the program, I help students learn language conventions, letter sounds, reading and comprehension strategies to get them up to their grade's reading level.

Teaching Experience for Ceramics and craft

I have been a crafter for most of my life, I especially love paper crafting and upcycling everyday rubbish. I make greeting cards, cake toppers, interactive photo albums and other home decor items. I am currently part of a design team for 6 digital product companies and run a blog for advertising purpose. My style is simple and elegant. I also love making gifts for my students, (I'm a school teacher) so also have a collection of cute and adorable stamping supplies.

Teaching Experience for NAPLAN Numeracy

I have been preparing my students for NAPLAN by focusing on test preparation skills as well as knowledge in Literacy and Numeracy. In my experience, students do poorly due to the inability to regulate emotions under pressure and substandard studying skill. If students express the ambition of pursuing VCE, I often focus on note-taking and emphasize on regular practice rather than cramming. All my lessons are based on individual students and their specific need.

Teaching Experience for IELTS

I have 3 years of experience in helping adults prepare for IELTS Tests to satisfy visa requirements. I have access to learning materials and tips based on personal experience from helping family members and friends pass the test. My ability to speak Mandarin, Tamil and Malay with relative fluency, maybe help to those who these languages are a native tongue.

Teaching Experience for General Computer

Through my volunteering, I have been teaching refugees, migrants and golden agers to use digital technology. I have worked with Windows computer, internet using skills for jobseeking and general computer skill for education and leisure. I enjoy teaching adults and recognise that they are champion in their own respect and are extremely courageous to step out of their comfort zone to learn something new. I am more than happy if you have a project and would like to use it as an example in lessons. General computer skills are learned best when there is a purpose and is hands-on.
