Personal Description:

I am passionate about teaching, and have a broad base of knowledge and experience from which to draw. Prior to completing my Master of Teaching I have also studied a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in History receiving an upper second. Prior to this, I completed a Bachelor of Arts majoring in History and Psychology. I currently live in Launceston with my family, where I also teach piano. In the past I have worked in hospitality, as a technical writer and a barista.

Tuition Experience:

I have recently completed a Master of Teaching (secondary) specialising in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL), also known as ESL, or EAL/D; and History, with placements in both private and public schools. I also have several years' experience in private tutoring. I have also worked for the University of Tasmania as a Student Learning Mentor, and as a freelance proofreader/researcher. These positions involved assisting students with writing essays, researching for assignments, as well as proof-reading and editing students' work.

Tutoring Approach:

The three guiding philosophies that have influenced me the most as a teacher are **Contact Detail Removed**; positive student relationships; and 'pedagogical flexibility'.

The concept of **Contact Detail Removed** emanates from my belief that knowledge gives the power to choose. **Contact Detail Removed** enables all students to think critically; to know their rights; and to stand up against those who would see them fail. I believe that to deny a student access to knowledge is, by implication, to deny them access to a part of his or her life that they did not know they could access.

Secondly, I believe in developing positive relationships with students. This stems from my belief that if I have a positive relationship with students, then I will also have a deeper understanding as to how they learn. It also means I am better equipped to implement differentiated instruction to students of varying abilities.

Last of all I believe in being flexible with how to teach as manifested through critically-reflective practice. Presently I believe in an approach that incorporates direct and guided instruction, however, through critical reflection of my own practice, this position may change, depending on the needs of my students.
