Hi families, I am an Irish teacher living in and loving Melbourne. As a teacher I have some free time after school, at weekends and over the school holidays. I am a fun, friendly and energetic person with over 15 years of child minding experience and some pets along the way too ☺️ Tutoring is also an avenue in which my expertise can also be used.
Trained as a Primary School Teacher with Special Ed as part of the course. I have taught in a Special School for 18 months
I have been looking after children for over 15 years. In particular I worked woth 2 sets of families each with 4 children varying in ages from new borns to 12 year olds. This was in Ireland. There were other family’s with 1-2 children for after school and weekend care while parents were out of the country. During my time in Melbourne I have looked after a family with a 6 month old and 3 year old and another family for after school care with a 7 year old and 3 year old. I am happy to work with all ages, no preferences. Working in child care allows me to see children’s development and learning firsthand as they grow and flourish under my care. The role of a child care provider is vital in the early years of an infant and in my experience the most rewarding is seeing this growth.
I have been tutoring as long as I have been training to be a teacher which is 10 years. I am proficient in literacy and numeracy with reading and maths a passion of mine. These are the areas in which children often need most supports NS through the years I have learned a variety of strategies to enable children to reach their potential. My training was completed in Ireland with a Bachelor of Education.
