(9 student reviews)
I am a literacy specialist with a Bachelor of Education degree majoring in the teaching of reading. I have been in education for over 30 years and am currently teaching in a western suburbs' school in Perth, Western Australia.
I have been involved in delivering a literacy programme called "Cracking the ABC Code" for the past four years and the results have been quite extraordinary. Its primary focus is not only on teaching phonics, but also moving knowledge from short term memory to long time memory, which has been proven to be fundamental to learning, especially with regard to the enhancement of literacy skills.
The programme extends over 14 weeks which includes a comprehensive diagnostic pre- assessment, a 12 week individualised instructional programme and a comprehensive post-assessment. This literacy programme has proven to be highly successful with results increasing reading and spelling age by up to 4 years.
I have always had a passion for improving students' literacy and see them achieve success and enjoy the academic journey.
I have recently been preparing many primary school students for the NAPLAN tests in both literacy and numeracy. The students under my tuition have achieved some excellent results.
I am available Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 7:30am to 6pm and Saturday and Sunday from 9am.
I am currently teaching two days in a primary school in Nedlands, Western Australia as
well as delivering a literacy programme called " Cracking the ABC Code" which has
improved students" reading and spelling up to 4 years over a 12 week period.
Since the NAPLAN tests have been introduced Australia wide, I have been tutoring
students from Year 3 to Year 9 in both literacy and Mathematics.
I am available to tutor on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays from
9am to 5:30pm.
