Teaching has to be driven by assessment. Finding out what the student knows, and how they learn is the best way to personalise the instruction. Lessons then are tailored to ensure that student makes progress, while learning how to capitalise on their unique strengths and learning style. Many times when finding out missing concepts I can help the student grow, while giving them tools to ensure success now and in the future. Teaching is all about opening the world.

Rebecca's CV


Adaptable, dependable and fast learning, I am an enthusiastic, organised worker. Possessing QTS and TESOL Certifications along with a Masters Degree in Education I have more than 20 years teaching experience, 10 in urban American inner city schools. Having been required to write, implement, revise and arbitrate legal documentation, I have also been accountable for providing records in compliance with governmental regulations. Specialising in finding creative ways to surmount learning deficiencies, I am accustomed to identifying and implementing practical solutions, including the use of technological adaptations, leading to student improvement and success. Benefiting from a positive supportive attitude I now seek a varied and challenging position where I can contribute my experience and skills while utilizing my expertise.
