Foundation Phase support from a dedicated teacher in Edenvale/Bedfordview area with experience

Methodology

When I meet the student I assess their needs and plan a curriculum that is suitable to the work they are required to cover .I find out the best way that child will learn are they visual/oral learners and develop lessons that accommodate their learning styles. I reward and praise the learners constantly so they develop positive self confidence in the work they are doing.

Background

Im a teacher with 28 years experience in both private and government schooling. Ive written educational textbooks that were published for the OBE curriculum. Then I started my own business teaching craft to children as an extra mural. I've tutored adults online as well as done tutoring to children on a daily a basis .

Profile
I am a Foundation Phase trained teacher with 28 years teaching experience in both government and private primary schools.

I have written numerous learners and teachers textbooks that were used in schools prior to the latest change in curriculum. I created, developed and manage my own craft business with its staff to ensure that it is growing concern. This has been operational for 6 years . I assist with individual tutoring as well as online tutoring.
I enjoy teaching both Foundation Phase and Grade R children as each age group brings their own challenges and rewards to the day.

I am a goal driven but compassionate teacher with a solid commitment to the social and academic growth of every learner regardless of their age and ability.
While operating my craft business I have been engaged in online adult tutoring in Afrikaans and have found it an exciting extension of my teaching career.
Modern technology has enhanced education and I have been able to take on and assist students who live in Lesotho and tutor them weekly.
I also tutor 2 children on a daily basis and ensure that they cope with their school work.
One child is currently in Grade 3 and the other is in Grade 8.
I have also completed an ILAMM Knowledge Network computer course that is being used in many schools.
I am eager to maintain my interests in current trends in educational developments and involve them in my educational approaches.


Objective
• To use my expertise in the development of education, along with my writing skills and the rich experience I possess to further my career.
• To assist in the development of children and adults in their education as this is my passion.
• To use the many skills that I have gained throughout my career to enrich positions that are offered to me.
