Registered teacher available to teach English literacy and writing skills - primary or secondary

Methodology

I take a flexible approach to instruction. Initially, I will get the student to do some reading and writing, to assess the level of competency already attained. From there I will design an individually tailored approach that targets the main concerns, including but not limited to reading comprehension, vocabulary, grammar and punctuation, as well as developing creative and essay writing skills.

For senior students, the classes will focus upon whatever the points of concern are for that student, but can include evaluation and discussion of texts being studied, essay writing, poetry evaluation, etc.

Experience

I have over 30 years experience as a teacher. Though I previously taught English to Year 12 in a secondary school, I have recently been tutoring primary students in various aspects of literacy and language. My training and experience as a student counsellor is also an asset to a safe and effective learning environment. So, whatever your language skill level, I am confident that I can assist you to go to the next level! ESL learners are also welcome.
