Learn your way.
I'm passionate about learning. I've met a lot of people, children and adults, who think they're terrible at something, but I can see it's just that they're not being given a chance to try to learn in a way that suits them best. That's why my approach to tutoring is to help you work out how you learn best, and develop some strategies with you to help you make the most out of your natural learning style.
I have a Graduate Certificate in Museum Studies, and a Bachelor of Arts majoring in Linguistics and Archaeology.
I am AUSTSWIM trained and hold current First Aid and CPR.
My background is museum, gallery and library education, which means that I know how to make an educational experience fun for students. I'm not interested in straight prescriptive teaching (though I can provide that if it's what you prefer); I want to help you work out how you learn best, and harness that so you can reach your learning goals.
I have experience teaching in a range of different formats, including one-to-one tutoring, and tutoring for small groups.
I also taught swimming for six years to people of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds. I am particularly good with people who are anxious or have an emotional or mental block to their learning, because I focus on working out what the best approach will be with each person.
My areas of expertise are English, essay writing for arts and humanities, literacy and numeracy for primary and intermediate aged students, swimming, and learning languages.
