This is how 2 referees rated Mark:
Hello - my name is Mark . I am 56 years-old and a registered, experienced teacher living in the southern suburbs of Adelaide. I am available now as an English tutor. I am a current TRT teacher with DECD and have recently been an online tutor for Primary School-age students from China, via Skype, with DaDaABC. I am undertaking a Master of Education online through the University of Southern Queensland and I am a volunteer English tutor at the Hub Community Centre tutoring adult migrant learners.
I completed a BEDMSSBA (English/History) at Flinders University in 2012, with a GPA of 6.69, finishing in the top 15% of the student cohort. I am passionate about teaching young learners and am presently tutoring a number of students privately to help improve their English reading and writing and assisting with their assignments and school projects.
I majored in English and History, which I am qualified to teach to Year 12. I am passionate about both learning areas, as I feel that English study permeates all school learning and that History scaffolds basic understandings of our Australian culture and place in the world. I adopt reporting and assessment strategies that utilise pre-assessment evaluations and that consider student needs. I feel that formative assessment is an important component for determining student engagement and I believe that summative assessment strategies should be varied to include a variety of learning activities and tasks. It is important to structure assessment activities so that students can demonstrate their learning in various ways: for example, writing, drawing, performance-based (oral or visual/multi-media) or by submitting negotiated product. All of my assessment tasks are designed to address the Australian Curriculum and guidelines.
