About Me

Hi, I'm Gemma. I have worked as a teacher for almost 5 years in Melbourne and London. I am a Victorian Institute of Teaching registered teacher of English, Humanities, Media and Literacy. I can tutor in a local library or at your residence for your convenience and am flexible on after school times.

Over the past two years I have worked closely with special education needs children in a mainstream school, developing their Literacy skills and helping them achieve their goals academically. Due to this, I have a strong understanding of various special education needs such as dyslexia, ADHD, ASD, dyspraxia and so forth. In my role as a Literacy teacher I would facilitate lessons around reading comprehension, writing skills, grammar, and punctuation. I have helped pupils in year 7 and 8 improve their 'reading age' by several years and reading ability to become independent readers, building their confidence.

Many of the schools and areas I have taught in are greatly multicultural with many pupils being English as an additional language (EAL) students. My specialisation in my Masters of Teaching was in EAL and I can greatly assist EAL students with the minor adjustments they may need to boost their English proficiency.

I am also able to tutor students in Primary school wanting to take Independent High School entrance exams or prepare themselves for the next years' intake. Please inform me if this is the case as I can find the specific test formats and use these to help prepare your child accordingly.

My approach to teaching is through positivity and encouragement, helping the student believe in their abilities and feel a sense of pride when they reach their learning goals.
