Personal Description:

Hello, my name is Pat and I am Australian and live in Queensland. I am a professional teacher, tutor and mentor. I am an Experienced Senior Teacher who has worked with children, student teachers and interns.

I have taught for both the NSW and QLD Education Departments and I was a Deputy Principal in NSW.

I provide an ONLINE coaching service. Although I am based on the Gold Coast I can coach students anywhere in Australia and can also work with International students.

I am available before school, after school and the weekends. Please contact me for times and bookings.

I am also available during the day to parents and students who are home-schooling. Keeping the children motivated and engaged, unpacking the curriculum and writing lesson plans and weekly and term overviews and either writing or collecting resources can be challenging for a non-professional educator, so don't hesitate to contact me.

Contact me for a FREE introductory session at which we can discuss your child's needs and book suitable times for the lessons. I offer 10% discount for 10 or more booked lessons.

I am also a registered NDIS provider for Early Childhood Supports.

I love helping people succeed at what they are trying to achieve.

Tuition Experience:

My back ground is Education. I am a qualified teacher with a Diploma in Teaching from Sydney Teachers College (Sydney University) and a Bachelor of Education from UNE Armidale.

I also have certificates in THRASS (Teaching Handwriting Reading and Spelling Skills), TIME (Teachers Investigating Mathematics Education), ELIC (Early Literacy in the Classroom), Collegial Coaching, Gifted Education, Application Writing for Professional Resumes and Aspiring Leaders.

I have also been acknowledged by Griffith University (Gold Coast) for my contribution to the Middle Years Teacher Education Program.

I also had the pleasure of presenting at the inaugural National Literacy Week Queensland Conference.

I am a professional teacher with over 35 years experience. I have worked with children from Prep to Yr 7. I have also worked with ESL, gifted and students with learning difficulties.

I have also mentored university trainee teachers and interns. I am registered with the Queensland College of Teachers.

Tutoring Approach:

I tutor online from my home to the student's home, one on one, providing a personalised program for children from mainstream, to gifted and talented students, ESL students, those with learning disabilities and children with diagnosed disabilities, who are registered with the NDIS from ages of 3 to 5 years. If your child with diagnosed disabilities is over the age of 5 years and registered with the NDIS, I can still work with them as a private student.

I find online tutoring is an excellent model to help students obtain their goals because they are in their home environment which is relaxing for them and helps to curve any anxieties about being in an unfamiliar environment, or any form of competition whilst working in small groups. In a one-on-one situation I can focus my whole attention on the student, which is often what these children need and are lacking in the classroom situation.

When I am contacted by prospective clients I like to schedule a free 20 min session where we meet and decide whether we are a match to work together. I like to discuss with the students and parents what the expectations are and where the areas of concern are. Once I have determined what your child's learning needs are, I put together a program of teaching that will meet these needs.

I ask parents to email me copies of the of the latest reports, current work and a curriculum overview for the term from the class teacher, so that the program I provide aligns with their classroom work, creating a common thread between the classroom and tutoring.

Continued discussion with the parents is vital to any tutoring and is integral to the success of the program.
