I am a registered primary school teacher with over 20 years experience working in both public and private school settings. I currently work part-time teaching English as a Second Language (ESL) to school students and adults. For the past 5 years I have been a marker of the NAPLAN and QCS writing tasks. In 2016, I completed a Master of Education at the Queensland University of Technology and obtained a High Achievement Award.

I am passionate about creating a positive learning environment which develops skills and confidence to enable my students to thrive.

My areas of instruction include:

PRE-SCHOOL - beginning phonics, reading, writing and number instruction. I have extensive experience teaching children in their formative years of education. I am passionate about equipping young learners with the building blocks of reading and writing to facilitate a confident and positive start to school.

PRIMARY - reading, comprehension, writing, grammar, spelling and maths; NAPLAN preparation. I have 20+ years experience as a classroom teacher of students from Prep-Year 6. I am qualified in THRASS and have extensive experience as a learning support teacher. For the past 5 years I have been a marker of the NAPLAN writing tasks.

TERTIARY - assignment guidance and proofreading; tuition in reading, writing, grammar; English conversation classes.

ADULT - adult English classes in reading, writing, grammar; adult English conversation classes.


I am available for after-school private tuition, Mondays - Fridays from 3.15pm. However, I may have other available time slots throughout the day depending on my part-time teaching schedule.
