Teaching Experience for English

I have worked as a generalist primary school teacher for over 12 years. I have also taught English to migrants at a community house and worked as a teacher librarian. I ran a Language Arts club for gifted children for 2 years through G.A.T.E.ways. I have also taught specialist Language and Literature workshops for gifted students, which sold out in Victoria and were highly successful interstate. I have also tutored primary and secondary students of all ages, from prep to year 12.

Teaching Experience for Mathematics

I have over 12 years of experience teaching Mathematics to primary school students. I am very successful with using concrete materials to help young students understand abstract concepts, such as fractions.

Teaching Experience for NAPLAN Writing

In 2019 I trained as a NAPLAN marker. I have access to the marker's book and am able to explain exactly what is needed to achieve success. Writing is a hobby of mine, and I have written several children's books myself (unpublished). I have great enthusiasm for this subject.

Teaching Experience for NAPLAN Reading

I have several years of experience preparing students for the NAPLAN tests, and trained as a NAPLAN marker last year. I have a passion for reading and have worked as a Reading Recovery teacher and a teacher librarian, as well as tutoring students with specific language disorder and dyslexia.

Teaching Experience for NAPLAN Numeracy

I have many years of experience preparing primary school students for the NAPLAN tests.

Teaching Experience for Special needs - Dyslexia

I have tutored many students with specific language disorder, autism, ADHD and dyslexia. At Xavier College I taught students with dyslexia as a learning support teacher, using Voice-To-Text and other tools to support them in their learning. I have experience advocating for students and helping them transition to new schools. I attend PSGs and help set up Individual Learning Plans.

Teaching Experience for Special needs - Physical impairment

I have taught at two special developmental schools. Before becoming a teacher, I worked as a carer and a recreation support officer. I have recently volunteered with Moira and was a respite carer prior to having children. I also worked at the Brotherhood of St Laurence as an Early Childhood Early Intervention Officer, helping families access the NDIS.

Teaching Experience for Special needs - ADHD

I have tutored and cared for many students with ADHD and am a patient and supportive mentor with a range of strategies to help students stay on task and achieve their goals.

Teaching Experience for Special needs - Autism

I have tutored many students with autism, and have personal experience with family members on the spectrum. I have experience advocating for students and helping them transition to new schools. I attend PSGs and help set up Individual Learning Plans. I also have experience helping families negotiate the education system and apply for the NDIS.

Teaching Experience for Helping students with a Reading Disorder

I use a phonics based approach to support students with a reading disorder such as dyslexia. I have a great deal of experience tutoring students with dyslexia and can provide referees if required.
