Information about Marc - Matraville tutor
This is how 2 referees rated Marc:
I am dedicated in achieving performance outcomes. Providing scaffolds and exemplars are efficient aids for students. They provide students with a familiarity of literary text types and concepts. I particularly focus on the process of giving students detailed feedback; research (see Professor John Hattie's meta-studies on this area) indicates that this is the most potent tool for student success. I ensure that I am up to date with the latest practices in pedagogy, which is invaluable especially with the 'roll in' of the National Curriculum in coming years. I engage student interest in the subject through my empathy and sincere desire to excel through innovation.
I have taught the subject of English for some 30 years (Years 7 - 12 inclusive). My experience ranges from teaching in the Public sector, Catholic Schools, and most recently the Private sector. I am able to instil confidence and a sense of enjoyment into the learning process. Being flexible to accommodate a clientele with a wide range of attributes is essential. I have been a classroom teacher up until March 2013. During my career I have held the positions of Acting Head of History, Acting Head of English and Acting Coordinator of Year 8. Currently studying Master of Education (knowledge connectivity and innovation).
Schools are becoming more reliant on students using a pc in each class. I have a vast store of tools that can assist students in such situations. I also explain to students that tutoring is a partnership.Students need to realise that my purpose is not to do the work for them, but to enhance their skill levels to a point whereby they ultimately acquire the confidence to be self reliant. I am committed to excellence and can be relied upon when a student encounters difficulties in their subject area. A student needs to know that their tutor has the capacity to provide support when it is most needed.
